Digital TV with QAM Tuner Channel Scan Procedure 

PLEASE NOTE: ALL TV MANUFACTURERS DIFFER, SO MENU OPTIONS, WORDING AND OTHER ITEMS MAY VARY. THE BEST WAY TO COMPLETE THE CHANNEL SCAN IS TO REFER TO THE TV OWNERS MANUAL. IF THAT IS NOT AVAILABLE:

  1. Locate the TV remote control.
  2. Go to Menu or Settings
  3. Locate Channels or Set Up
  4. Most Digital TV sets have a scanning function typically called Auto Program, Channel Scan or some similar combination
  5. Find the scan function in the on-screen menu and start it
  6. You probably will see a progress bar that shows the number of channels found. A scan can take as long as 45 minutes depending on the TV set, so be patient
  7. When finished, the TV will have found all of the availavle channels
  8. The TV set will remember these channels for your later use
