This.

You need to point the antennae to some towers before scanning for channels. TV Towers is a great app.

i searched TV Towers on the App Store for iphone and cant find it. Is it under another name? Found Tower Radar but it sucks (or I don't know how to set it).

The one I use is "TV Towers USA" by Generally Helpful Software in the App store. It has worked great any time I've used it.

Found the problem! Not currently available in the Canadian Store! And I thought we were all friends, EH?!?!?! Seems odd that an app that claims to work in CDA and USA is not available to CDNs!

Sorry to hear that it's not available up north but that was the correct app.

On my TV, I hit Menu on the remote, Initialization, select channel scan. There are a few other menus in between but I can't remember them right now. Should be in the doco that you have with the TV.

But Channel Scan will not find any stations if the antenna is not pointed near the right direction,,, at least it won't in the North woods !!!

And some times you find one,,, and maybe can't keep it ???
