    You may choose to set Scan Type, Frequency or Network ID manually according to specific network parameters, received from your broadcast provider.

    If you have not received anything, we recommend to use the default settings:

    Scan type: Quick scan
    Frequency: Auto
    Network ID: Auto
    Operator: Select the name of your broadcast provider from the list

    If the scan does not find any or all channels, you may try to change the Scan Type setting to Full scan.
    IMPORTANT: It may take an hour, or longer, when selecting Full scan to tune your TV.

    NOTE: If you have problems with the Cable tuning procedure, please check with your provider as they may use different settings.

The TV will now start tuning. A confirmation message will appear once completed.
