AutoScan doesn’t lock onto any program channels.

• Confirm that there’s ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee)

broadcasting in your area.

• Re-position the antenna to obtain a stronger signal, then try AutoScan again.

(You can also try using an outdoor antenna.)

• Confirm the correct country is selected on the TotalMedia Scan Function screen.

Fewer channels are received compared to the previous viewing session.

• The antenna may have been moved or re-positioned, or may have something

placed near it causing interference, such as an aluminum can.

• Bad weather may be affecting your reception.

• Some first-time ATSC-broadcast providers alter their broadcast power daily,

which can affect your reception quality

During viewing, the screen blacks out or freezes.

• This is due to a weak signal, with the same likely causes as those above.

Video is okay, but the audio doesn’t work.

• Check the sound card or the volume setting.

The remote control doesn’t work.

• Check the battery.

• Make sure the remote is being used within 5 m (16 ft.) of the stick, and that

there are no obstructions affecting reception of the remote control signal.

The image on screen occasionally freezes or slows.

• Check that the system requirements are being met, particularly Pentium 4.

• Check that the VGA driver is properly installed and updated.

• Avoid running other high-CPU-loading software, such as games and CAD.
