After setting up and installing a Mitsubishi DLP TV, channels must be scanned in order to store and program available channels. This is done through a program in the setup menu called channel memorization. Channel memorization is necessary as many digital channels will not be available to watch without completion of this process.


Step 1

Press "Menu" on the remote to open the main menu on your television.
