Home Theater/Hooking up MItsubishi HD 1080 TV
Hello - I have a Mitsubishi HD 1080 TV where I just had the Directv disconnected. I want to be able to get the local free channels, like PBS, CBS, etc. When I disconnected the Directv cables from the TV, I cannot get the local channels, even if I switch to channel 3 or 4. Any suggestions?
Based on the TV tuning to "channel 3 or 4" I'm guessing it only has an NTSC tuner (which means it can't receive anything, because NTSC broadcasting ended in the US a few years ago); you will need a DTV Transport Box to receive ATSC broadcasts (for channels like PBS). You can pick them up online for relatively little money: http://www.amazon.com/Zinwell-ZAT-970A-Digital-Converter-Antenna/dp/B001DVZXC0/r
You'll also need an antenna:
If the TV is relatively new, it may have an ATSC tuner that you can enable in a sub-menu; I'd need to know more about the model information to find an owner's manual and look this up though (or if you have the manual with you, it should say).
