    Note:Refer to the manufacturer of the television for information on the procedure, for example consult the manual.

  2. If the television is also unable to find all of the free-to-air TV channels, have your cable provider check your cable connection.
    • If the television finds all of the free-to-air TV channels, proceed with the following section.
