How to Scan Channels on a Mitsubishi DLP TV

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

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

Step

Use the down and up arrow keys on the remote to navigate throughout menu selections. Highlight the “Setup” icon; this displays the Setup menu. Press the right arrow key on the remote to highlight the “Scan” icon.

Step

Choose your television input method. Choose “Ant 1 Air” or “Ant 2 Air” for connections to an indoor or outdoor antenna. Choose “Ant 1 Cable” or “Ant 2 Cable” for direct cable connections without a cable box. Press the right arrow on the remote key to highlight the “Start” button located on screen.

Step

Press “Enter” on the remote to begin automatic channel memorization. You can press “Cancel” to stop channel memorization at any time.

Step

Hit “Menu” twice when channel memorization is complete to return to the main menu, or press “Exit” to watch television.
