How do I tune or retune my Sony LCD TV (Satellite Guide Multiple Antennas)?

    This is a step-by-step guide how to perform a basic tuning for up to four antennae (LNB) satellites.

    IMPORTANT: Before you begin with the tuning procedure, you will need the basic details of your satellite system (which satellite is received or how the signal is distributed from satellite antenna to TV, for example). This information can be retrieved by contacting your broadcast and satellite antenna provider.

    The below procedure applies to all of our Sony LCD televisions (excluding Android TVs). However, depending on your TV model, slight differences between the layout of the remote control and the menu interface may occur.

    If you need further guidance at any point, you can find out more information in your TV's built-in Help Guide, or by navigating to the Support-page of your TV model.
