Tuning your Television

Once you connect your coax cable, you will need to use your remote to access on-screen menu programming. Exact details on how to auto-program or auto-tune digital TVs vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, and from model to model.

These instructions are generalizations that are meant to describe the way most TVs accomplish this feature. For best results, refer to the owner’s manual for the specific TV you are working with. Some TVs can take up to 10 minutes to complete this function.

Using the TV's remote control, follow these general steps:

Step 1: Press the “Power” button to turn on the TV.
Step 2: Press the “Menu” Button. At this point you will look for Channel or Set-Up.

Step 3: Look for an option pertaining to the “Antenna” type. At this point you will be presented with either an Antenna or Cable option. Choose “Cable“.
Step 4: Next, look for “Auto Program/Auto Tune” then press “OK”.
