This is primarily due to the high quality of the signal, as well as the ability to view more channels. Owners of all modifications of modern TVs, as well as people with outdated TVs, can make the transition. In such a situation, they need to purchase special receivers that will receive and decode signals. In the instructions, they will be able to learn how to tune the Supra TV to digital television, in manual or automatic mode.
Setting up an old TV model
To provide the old TV modification with reception of digital television channels, you need to purchase a receiver. With its help, it will be possible to watch terrestrial digital television, after all the settings have been completed. TV Supra owner must search for TV channels using the remote control.
What is required
If the owner of a Supra TV plans to watch digital channels, he must first find out if his TV supports this format. Information can be obtained by reading the instructions, in which the equipment manufacturer indicates all technical and operational data. In the case when the TV does not support digital format, the user needs to purchase a set-top box. This device is designed to receive, decode and play signals received from regional or local providers. Each person can connect a digital TV set-top box independently, using the instructions.
Setting up the Supra TV for digital television must be carried out using the remote control. The owner should first check its serviceability, the presence of working batteries.
How to set up a new TV

Why does not digital television show today, the main reasons and what to do
Due to the planned disconnection of apartments from analog TV broadcasting, the majority of the population switches to digital television, because it is characterized not only by high-quality images, but also by uninterrupted broadcasting. However, despite the obvious advantages of the technology, problems are possible here. Most often, they consist in the fact that digital television channels stop working. Let’s see why digital television does not show today.
Bad weather can be another reason for a weak digital TV signal. Strong gusts of wind, thunderstorms, rain and snow can affect signal reception. In this case, there may be a deterioration in the quality of the image and sound, and the picture may be displayed in the form of “squares / pixels”. The complete absence of a signal is also possible. In this case, check the signal level on your equipment. If the indicator is low, you should increase it to the maximum. It turns out that weather conditions will not be able to affect the loss of digital channels, but only some signal deterioration.
A common reason for the lack of broadcasting is the direction of the antenna towards the transmitting tower.
An antenna that is outdoors is most susceptible to damage. From frequent ingress of moisture, strong winds, elements can be damaged and there is no digital TV signal. Follow these steps to identify the problem:
- Check for voltage in the power supply.
- View cable connections to devices, plug.
If the equipment viewed does not help identify the cause, connect another antenna and test. If the new antenna also does not work, then the reason is different.
Faulty cable and connections
A faulty cable is a common problem. Since part of the cable is located on the street. during long-term operation, the winding is destroyed and erased, and this leads to cracks. It is important to review all cable connections for integrity. In case of damage, the cable will need to be replaced.
No signal what to do
Before proceeding to fix the problem, it is worth identifying what exactly it is. The reasons are divided into the following types:
- stopping the signal from the multiplex;
- repair work;
- equipment malfunction.
If there is no digital TV signal, make sure no maintenance work is in progress. You will need to go to the broadcaster’s website and familiarize yourself with the schedule of preventive and repair work. And if the problem lies in the installed equipment, you will need to determine at what level digital channels are not caught. on software or hardware. There may have been a settings failure on the TV, and as a result, it stopped showing. Why the channels disappeared and what to do with the cause, we will consider further.
Emergency situations requiring repair work (during which broadcasting is stopped) are a frequent case of signal absence. This is a temporary reason during which there is no signal at all. After the equipment is repaired, the broadcast tower will provide a digital TV signal in a normal mode.
It is quite SIMple to determine the breakdown of the set-top box. when turned on, the special LED is dimly lit or not at all. If no action is taken when you press the buttons on the remote control, then the problem is clearly with the console. Replace the set-top box with another and test the digital TV.
Preventive maintenance is a possible problem with the broadcast termination. To clarify, go to the broadcasting site of your region and view the information. To carry out test work, the second multiplex is turned off and the necessary information is collected. Broadcasting stops completely soon after. Today, in most regions, broadcasting is carried out using only one multiplex package. After disconnecting analog television, the ability to connect the second package will increase. If such preventive work is carried out, the TV and radio channels are temporarily disabled.
Poor signal reception conditions
Incorrect antenna placement can be a common problem with poor or no signal. It must be correctly installed and directed towards the direction of the tower. One of the reasons for poor signal reception can be bad weather conditions, as well as maintenance and repair work. It is also possible to break off the contact at the connections and cable connections. In this case, check all plugs.
Checking the connectivity through other connectors
If the TV does not display an image due to a damaged HDMI port, it is not necessary to immediately contact a service center. If the other ports are working, you can purchase an adapter and connect it to the corresponding socket.

You will immediately find the cause of the problem or narrow down the troubleshooting area. If the cable does not work with other equipment, the recommendation is obvious. you need to purchase a new one. If everything works, then it is worth checking whether the correct signal source on the TV is selected:
