Do I have to channel scan every time I turn my TV on?

some times i have to re-scan two or three times to get the same channels back
what give here
sometime i will lose one channel then have to re-scan two times to get it BACK
What I finally did was to wait till a really clear night and do a scan at 2 AM. Got more channels than you could shake a stick at, including one station 127 miles away. Then I just left it there. I'll have to go through the whole blankety-blank mess again when I get my new antenna.

this DTV Is a rip off
I would almost agree, except we get more channels after you count the subchannels. Also, some people get off on the HD nonsense, though I can take it or leave it. Everything new requires some period of adjustment.



Scan problems

I have an RCA I have an RCA DTA800B1 converter box and up until yesterday it worked fine. Now it won't do anything when I do a scan. The box still comes on, I can access the menu but nothing when I scan it only gives me this message "no data" I could really use the help please somebody help.


I have to service scan for channels every time the telly switch on too.....I think it's because the antenna is in a tangle with our next door neighbour's who had the cheek to install his antennas on our side of the roof!

I haven't heard of any sets requiring a new scan every time it is turned on. Please tell us the make and model number of your set and perhaps someone on the Forum can specifically address this problem.
