I was expecting to see something like a message saying "TVGOS reset" or something but I got nothing. I am doing this on my Panasonic TV that has TVGOS.
I haven't used TVGOS for awhile now, but my instruction might not be exactly clear.
You press that 2nd number at the same place you pressed the 1st number, i.e., exit back to the TVG main menu, select SETUP, highlight "Change system settings," then enter 653159147. I think you then have to press TVG button to exit (or it exits for you?), turn unit off, then on, and reset TVG settings. Don't accept zip code or other choices, rekey and toggle them as if new settings. Wait overnight to see if you get TVG and channel listings for your zip.
Just for clarity (I hope), here's the whole procedure again, corrected:
1-Open TVG and, in top menu bar, select SETUP > "Change system settings"... highlight it only (DON'T press Enter).
2-Enter on keypad the #s 753159852 (an "X" "I" pattern) > Right arrow to 2nd grey screen > Find "Host Chan" in left column and see if there are #s at right, which may look like 1:0-10 in Pioneers or 0x9 in Panasonics and others. The last full # is your Host Channel. ("VBI Chan" is the channel you're tuned to now.)
3-If there is a Host Chan there, remember the # and press TVG button to exit. If NO Host Chan listed, go back to Step 1 but press the following #s on the keypad: 653159147, which resets the TVGOS system. I think you have to press TVG button to exit (it might exit for you?), then turn unit off, then on, and reset TVG settings. Don't accept zip code or other choices, rekey and toggle them as if new settings. Wait overnight to see if you get TVG and channel listings for your zip
