 Solid Signal  How to Channel Scan on your Digital Converter Box

How do I rescan for new digital channels?
Many stations have changed their frequency or broadcast channel on February 12th. This will cause a lot of converter boxes to say no signal, a quick channel scan will clue your converter box in on which channels made the switch.
1. Hit MENU or SETUP on your converter box remote, and look for an option called AUTOSCAN or CHANNEL SCAN.
2. Wait as your converter box searches every channel for digital channels.
3. After the Autoscan is complete, use your Converter Box remote to flip through the channels to see if you have picked up your missing channels.
4. If you are still missing the channels, you may need to adjust your antenna and do another Autoscan.
• If you are using rabbit ears, or indoor antennas, this is especially true, one corner of the house could have great reception, while the other has no signal. Also be patient, in following week stations may raise their broadcast power to compensate for areas experience lower than average signal.

Television Antenna FAQs
Will adding an amplifier improve the range of my antenna?
Amplifiers can only amplify the signal they receive, so they will not enhance your antenna´s reception, amplifiers only make up for signal loss from long cable lengths or splitters. If you have cable lengths over 70 ft or if you are splitting to multiple TV´s an amplifier would improve your signal strength to overcome any signal loss.

What type of cable do I need to connect my antenna?
We recommend quad shielded RG6 coax cable. Quad shielded cable has about the same signal loss per foot as regular RG6, but eliminates a lot of the interferences that can hurt your reception. If you are running RG59, then it´s probably over 15 years old and should be replaced. We make custom length RG6 and RG6 Quad cables with connectors already attached.
