This is one of the most boring tasks for many users and yet one of the most common, especially when we have continuous frequency changes that require us to tune our TV’s DTT if we want to keep watching the TV. “Traditional TV”. This is why we are going to explain to you how to connect to TNT, which will be necessary after the change of frequency which will take place throughout this year.
Getting connected to the TNT channels is a more than difficult process, it is tiring. And this is not only because it has to be done repeatedly, but also because TV brands continue to offer, in many cases, a prehistoric panorama in the interface, especially when organizing Chains. So without further ado, let’s get down to business.
The process may change depending on the brand of TV we are going to use and the operating system it is using. For the example, we’ll use the three operating systems currently in effect in order to cover as many examples as possible. These are LG TVs with webOS, Samsung with Tizen and models with Android TV.
TVs with Android TV (Sony)
If yours is a TV with Android TV, here are the steps you need to take, although depending on the brand you may find other changes. For the example, I used a Sony TV, a brand that changed the interface with the latest Android TV update.
Press the Home button on the remote control to access “Settings”. You should then look for the “Watch TV” section and inside, “Channels”. At this point, you should choose the “Channel Configuration” option and choose the “Digital Configuration” mode. From there, the menus change. We go back to the old interface and mark “Digital tuning” then “Automatic digital tuning”. After the process is complete, we can only order the chains which is the most tedious task.
Other TVs with Android TV
If in your case you are using a TV with Android TV under another brand or with a different version of Android, the process is very similar to that of the Sony that I tested, although it may have some nuances.
You have to press the “Home” button on the remote control and enter the “Settings”. Once inside, you must go to the “Channel configuration” section and then to “Digital configuration”. Here you need to click on “Digital Tuning” option and on “Frequency Margin” of “Auto Tuning” it is convenient to choose “Complete” option. Just click on “Digital Automatic Tuning” to continue.
LG TVs with webOS
In the case of webOS, the process is simpler, because when we find only one brand, in all models we will encounter almost the same steps.
The first step is to click on the icon in the shape of a cog wheel which gives access to “Settings”. Once inside, click on the “All settings” option. There you have to locate the option “Channels”, where you have to click on “Tuning” and “Channel configuration”. At this point, you must click on “Auto Tuning” to automatically tune the TNT channels.
Samsung TVs with Tizen
If yours is a Samsung TV with Tizen, the steps change, although they are still very similar to the previous ones. And as with webOS, being a single brand, the process is almost the same even if the version of Tizen changes.
To start the process, we have to press the “Home” button on the remote control. Once inside, go to “Settings” and look for the “Show” option. You must click “Auto-tune” to automatically re-tune the channels, or do it manually by entering “Expert setup” then “Manual tune”.
If your television does not fit into any of these equations and although it is difficult to take specific steps to follow, we can try to find some instructions that can guide you through the process. A few steps which, as a rule, involve access to the configuration from the remote control, either via the “Settings”, “Home” button or similar.
In the configuration we need to search for something similar to “Tuning”, “Channel search”, “Channel configuration” … a similar term. Once located, it is convenient to use automatic search, keeping in mind that all current channels will disappear and be replaced with new ones. From there, it only remains to order the chains, which is no small amount.
