I was recently given an older model 2005 Hitachi ultravision plasma tv. I bought a universal remote control, programmed it, and the remote now works. Since I do not have cable tv (and I don't want cable tv), I've tried auto scanning to receive my local digital tv channels. When I attached an indoor antenna to the tv, go to Channel Manager, then tried the Signal Meter. I can't get it to work with or without an antenna--the message says "This Function is not available." I then tried Auto Channel Scan--it seems to work but when I go to Channel List, it too is grayed out with the same message. I believe if I can get the Signal Meter to work (grayed out), then maybe I can program the channels. When I return to the main screen, it says "Execute Auto Scan First". I tried everything I could think of including calling a tv repairman who gave me a "you must be out of your mind" estimate! The only other way I could watch tv is with my fire stick but the HDMI inputs do not work. I think I can get replacement ports for those if I order them online. I would really like to have the tv work, though. Any suggestions? Thank you.
