Does Hisense TV require separate tuner for local channels?

No, Hisense TV does not require a separate tuner for local channels, as it comes with a built-in tuner to scan local and cable TV channels.

However, if you are experiencing issues with your Hisense TV not picking up local channels, there are a few steps you can try:

  1. Check your antenna positioning: This is the very first step. Ensure that your TV antenna is placed at a higher location to receive air signals properly.
  2. Check the tuner mode: Make sure the “Tuner Mode” is set to “Antenna”.
  3. Rescan for antenna channels: Power cycle the TV and then go to the settings and then ‘channel auto scan’. Now run the auto-tuning again.
  4. Try a different input: If the issue persists, try switching to a different input on your TV to see if the local channels appear.

Most of the time, if you follow what I mentioned above, the problem will be fixed.

But if not, contact Hisense and tell them about the issue. (Maybe your TV’s antenna port is damaged or you need to update the firmware)

Hope this helps…
