  • The UHF band (channels 14 and higher) is more directional than VHF (channels 2-13) and more sensitive to obstacles (such as trees, tall buildings, and mountains) that lie between your antenna and the broadcast tower. Getting good UHF reception can be more difficult than VHF. 
  • If you're getting marginal reception of digital signals, both the picture and sound might freeze or break up to the point that it's not watchable. If you're really on the fringes—either too far from a tower or with too many obstacles in the way—you'll see a black screen that says "No signal." 
  • Reception can vary by channel, depending on the location and broadcast power level of a given station.
  • Make sure your antenna is connected securely to the TV.
  • Use a basic indoor set-top antenna designed to pick up both VHF and UHF.

OR

Use a set-top antenna that has a built-in signal amplifier.

OR

Use an antenna mounted on your roof or in your attic

8. My picture is not filling the screen. I have black bars around my picture.

  • This is due to the aspect ratio.  An increasing amount of digital TV and movies is presented in wide screen (16:9). 
  • Different sources and TV stations may broadcast different aspect ratios. The aspect ratio may need to be changed as you change to a different source or TV station.
  • To change the appearance of the screen, cycle through these five options by pressing the ZOOM button on the remote:

  • Normal: Selects the aspect ratio that matches to source’s aspect ratio (4:3 or 16:9) 
  • Zoom: Enlarges the picture. The top and bottom may be cropped. 
  • Wide: Displays a full-screen image. 
  • Cinema: Stretches the image at the edges while maintaining a clear image in the center of the screen.
  • Panorama: The image is stretched to fill the screen.
