i have already paid 38.00 and you are answering my question with a question
Customer reply replied 28 days ago
I connected the Terk antenna yesterday without getting a picture. Does the LG tv mosel support an antenna or do I need another piece of equipment?

Yes I do need some basic info to get started, this is a conversation.

There is no built in antenna, if that is what you meant. You do need to connect an external antenna, I'm asking if you've done this.

I connected the Terk amplified multi directional indoor flat hdtv antenna

Yes you can use the terk antenna, but it needs to be programmed.

First, set the input/source mode to TV (air),

then go into the menu, under Channels, then run the channel scan/search function

Ask Your Own TV Question

It can take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour to run,

but after it is done it will show how many channels were found, depending on what signals that antenna is capable of picking up in your location.

You can then exit the menu and use the channel buttons on the lg remote to move up/down between those it found.

i will continue to work on this using your instructions. when I select tv from the input menu, I get a snowy screen and no sound and menu is not offered

That is normal, because you have no channels installed yet.

After that, you need to press the menu button on the remote.

pressing the menu button does nothing to change the picture or take me to another menu
Customer reply replied 28 days ago
I am signing off now, no change in status no picture, no access to menu or channels or connection to antenna. I will continue to try.

Use the button that says Q Menu, it looks like Gear on the button

the channel search process has started. Thank you. The directions and demonstration provided by Terk had the antenna downloading channels ad soon as the tv was turned on; I should have known it would not be so easy. Thank you again. Goodbye
