    7. When selecting Antenna, the auto-tuning for the antenna starts at this point.
    8. If Cable was selected in the previous step, the menu for Cable tuning will now appear.
    9. You may choose to set Scan Type, Frequency or Network ID manually according to specific network parameters received from your broadcast provider.
    10. If you have not received anything, we recommend using the default settings:
      • Scan type = Quick scan
      • Frequency = Auto
      • Network ID = Auto
      • Operator: Select the name of your broadcast provider from the list
    11. 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. ​If you have problems with the Cable tuning procedure, please check with your provider as they may use different settings.
    12. Proceed by selecting Start.
    13. The TV will now start tuning. A confirmation message will appear once completed.
