How To: TV Auto Program / Channel Scan

The following article will take you through the procedure to perform a channel scan on your TOSHIBA television to store channels from a cable TV or TV antenna signal.

 

Prior to performing a successful channel scan:

  • Your TV must be connected to a working cable TV service or TV antenna through the coax connector.
  • The TV must not be connected to a cable box through the coax connection unless the connection is a pass-through type at the box.
  • You must select the corresponding source on the TV to scan for channels from (Antenna or Cable).

After the channel auto program / scan has been performed, you can change channels on the TV by pressing the channel up/down button on the remote control.
