How to Rescan Your Antenna TV

Rescanning is when your TV finds all of the available VPM channels in your area. You do not need to purchase new equipment or services to complete a rescan of your television set.

Rescanning Steps

  • Select Scan or Autotune from your TV or converter box control menu to start the scanning process.
  • Your TV will do the rest. This process usually takes a few minutes to complete.

Once your rescan is complete you can still find your favorite VPM stations on the same channel numbers as before. If you have rescanning difficulties, you can usually find instructions by selecting the Set-Up or Menu button on your television or converter box remote control.

Still having issues? Consult the TV or converter box owner's manual for detailed instructions on how to run a channel scan, or contact customer service for your TV or converter box manufacturer.
