Channels tuned wrong on (TVGOS) on a Sony Bravia

by fastrack12003 / January 26, 2010 12:44 PM PST

On my Sony T.V. in the TVGOS when you go to channel setup some of them like channel 4-1 keeps saying now tuning. Channel 4-1 used to work some of the channels like it still work and some don't. Also a couple of other channels don't work anymore CHILL channel 88 is one of them. and I also noticed a lot of channels are turned off and to turn them on you have to tune them which some of them like channel 11 I was able to turn it on by tuning it to 11, but entering the channel number in the tune spot doesn't work on all of them. Another channel I lost is ESPN classic it is not tuned. Channel 10 is tuned to 12-1 but it doesn't work. Channel 76.2 works which is HD of channel 4. Also channel 79.1 works which is HD of channel 5. I need help getting all my channels back.

This may or may not be your tv's fault.

My guess is that your cable company change them on you. Just go through and find your favorite channels and remember them. Good luck.

I ran the channel auto program and it found 66 analog channels and 91 digital channels but only 5 of the digital channels are actually tv the others are all music channels. How does my tv find 66 analog channels if they were all supposed to all be switched to digital?

Also none of the 91 digital channels show up in the TVGOS. And the 5 digital channels I have like OETA HD channel 97.700 is supposed to be channel 700 according to when I searched listings for my zipcode. KWTV HD channel 75.1 is supposed to be channel 710. ABC HD channel 79.1 is supposed to be channel 720. NBC HD channel 76.2 is supposed to be channel 730. FOX HD channel 75.2 is supposed to be channel 705. I also get DisneyXD channel 105.5 but its not hd its only 480i.

I don't know what cable company you have.

You did not mention. I am not sure if all company offer lots of free HD channels. But for basic cable, the company hasn't switch over to digital so that people with analog tv can still get it, otherwise they will need a set top box.

I am not familiar with the tv you have but to get HD from cable, it needs to be QAM capable. Otherwise a HD box or cable card is needed.

As for OTA channels, an antenna is needed.
