Auto Programming Your TV

Programming Digital TVs Not Connected to a Cable Box

If you have a digital or HD TV not connected to a cable box, it is important to auto program your TV to ensure you are viewing the digital/HD versions of the channels. You can also use your remote to channel up or down to reach the digital/HD channels. Or, you can directly input 4.1 or 4-1 on your remote to reach your desired channel.
