If you are having difficulties receiving Ch. 5 it may be that your TV tuner has lost the settings for our channel.

You might try a new channel scan with your TV or converter box.

In some brands of TV or converter boxes it may be necessary to perform a "double rescan" because the memory in the tuner thinks that it has all the channel information already and skips a replacement of the settings.

In these cases, the manufacturers suggest a double rescan using the following directions.

The five simple steps to a “double rescan” for a converter box or digital TV are:

  1. Disconnect the antenna from the box or digital TV.
  2. Rescan the box or digital TV without the antenna connected. As with any scan follow the on-screen instructions or owner’s manual for your device
  3. Unplug the box or digital TV from the electrical outlet for at least one minute
  4. Reconnect the antenna to the box or digital TV and plug the unit into the electrical outlet
  5. Rescan the box or digital TV one more time

This should refresh the settings to receive Ch. 5.
