    Add more channels

    If you wish to add more channels:

    • You should try to perform search for channels again to restore all the channels in the TV memory
    • Make sure that your TV has the latest software installed
    • Check the incoming cable or antenna signal connection to make sure that it is properly secured to the TV's antenna input
    • Connect the antenna directly to the TV. Do not use an antenna cable splitter or loop through your external device such as set-top box or DVD recorder.

    Note: If you perform the channel search, your TV will reorder the channels according to the channel order predefined by the service provider. After the channel search, you can rearrange the channels to suit your preference in the channel grid with the [Reorder] feature in the options menu.
