When you are scanning for channels through the antenna, you have to go to Input Source and select Antenna/Cable. Then you can use the Auto Scan (EZ Scan) to automatically find the channels. Here is how to do it:

(1) Press the MENU button and then use ^ or v button to select the SETUP menu.
(2) Press the > button and then use ^ or v button to select EZ SCAN.
(3) Press the ENTER button to begin the channel search. Allow EZ SCAN to complete the channel search cycle for ANTENNA and CABLE.

Please put the source on Antenna/Cable and perform the auto scan and let me know if you are able to scan for channels.
