I've been using an OTA antenna to get our CBS station since they were cut off from Dish. Now I understand that we will lose our NBC channel the day before the Olympics start. When I go through the channel list on the TV, it skips the NBC channel. going from 8 (ABC) to 23 (PBS). How can I get the NBC local signal to register?
So you switched from dish to antenna? Must go into TV and switch source from whatever you were at to TV or BROADCAST and re-scan.
I know about switching sources to TV. I'm not switching completely, just using an OTA antenna to get local channels that have been blocked. This is all part of a conflict between Dish and Raycom media (owner of the local station) and is affecting millions of customers in markets all over the US.
My issue is that when I am in TV mode, I can see all of the other local channels, but not the NBC affiliate. It's simply not listed at all.
and use this fcc site to see if you can get the NBC signal
Thank you for that link!!
That site says I have a strong signal for the channel I am after.
HOWEVER, all of the other channels are listed as UHF band and the channel I'm missing it listed as Hi V band.
So the question becomes a little different - what do I need to do to pick up a HiV band signal.
