I did that first, it was on cable, I set it back to antenna - didn't make a difference
Try unplugging the power for a few minutes (hard reset).
Did that, also used the menu reset to factory settings
Try a rescan of the DTV input within the menu.
It won't let me, when it gets to the DTV input none of the buttons will do any thing.
If that all fails and your sure your antenna is good, make sure the TV will tune to alternate sources before buying some other tuner:
Try a VCR or some other device on the RF input (CH 3).
I'm sure the RF input is alright, the regular TV input does have some snowy channels coming in
Try a VCR or some other device on the component inputs (RCA red/white/yellow) and make sure the TV is tuned for that auxillary input (line in, 00, etc.).
Try a DVD player on the s-video input and red/white RCA audio (same TV tuning bit).
That's all the outputs CECBs could have.
The wii is on the s video output, and it's also worked on the regular video input. The bluray uses one of the HDMI inputs.
Of course a CECB won't give you the high def you once had but you could buy a more expensive HDTV tuner. In this case you would want to test the other input ports of your TV with a suitable source device. Component inputs, DVI, HDMI, etc.
Ok, so a cheapo tuner only allows for a digital signal to come in through the analog input? Doesn't sound like a fix I want to use, I'll look into a better one or maybe go back to cable w/ a DVR that has HDMI. I've really enjoyed the quality of local broadcasts through the hd antenna, cable compresses it and isn't as good of quality. I thought it might be a great excuse to upgrade to a 1080p TV, but no money for that right now.
