If you enter the TV menu with the button on the TV panel, you can see a large number of settings that will allow you to do all the operations in the right order. If there is no experience in setting up this technique, it is desirable to first read the instruction manual. So you can avoid many unpleasant mistakes when working with the equipment.

There you need to select the sub-item with automatic channel search. To run the function, you just need to click on the channel search and wait until the search is completed. It is important to note that in some models when using auto mode you are required to fix the channel set to go to the next search. To do this you need to press the button “” which adjusts the volume.
