If you have an analogue television, DirecTV satellite receivers can be used as a digital converter box. You can get on-air signals using a DirecTV receiver. CBS, ABC, FOX, as well as NBC are examples of local networks. Many other satellite providers don’t offer local stations, so you’ll have to view them via an antenna. Thankfully, by clicking a few buttons on your remote control, anyone can access your local stations.
Turn on both your TV as well as your DirecTV satellite receiver.
On the DirecTV remote control, press the “Guide” button. This brings up the DirecTV channel lists.
Scroll down to the bottom of your results. The station number and name of the channel are displayed on the left of the screen. Scroll down until you discover the on-air stations in your area. Typically, those stations may be accessed under channel 100.
Step 4: Press “Select” after selecting the on-air channel you wish to view. The on-air channel appears on television. If the situation persists, contact Comcast customer support to talk with a representative. If you’re having issues with HD transmission, make sure it’s part of your bundle. Set up an appointment for a technician to come over if the issues aren’t connected to the HD transmission.
Any messages on the TV screen should be read. Some Comcast channels may be unavailable or not included in your subscription. The channel will display a notice if one of these channels does not play. The problem is with the signal if there is no message and the channel does not play.
Disconnect the cable box. Unplug it for one to two minutes before plugging it back in. Restart the cable box, wait for it to load, and afterwards check the signal. This simple procedure can solve a variety of issues.
