The Big Switch is complete

East Texas (KTRE) - Are you ready for the Big Switch?  KTRE-TV is back on the air transmitting in a digital only signal.

We have a live phone bank set up with operators to answer any questions from you.  You can call from 9 a.m. this morning to 6 p.m. at 936-853-5873.  After 6 p.m. You can call KTRE's message line at 936-853-8633, or at KTRE.com click on the Big Switch logo for advice and troubleshooting.

Setting up your antenna to work with a new digital TV converter box can be easy.  Use the signal strength indicator on your DTV converter box and move around your antenna until your signal strength peaks.  Next, press re-scan on your DTV converter box to capture missing channels.  If you don't receive some channels, try moving your antenna to peak another station, then press re-scan again.  If your results are still poor after doing this several times, you may need a new HD TV antenna.  Older rabbit ear style antennas are usually not sufficient.

To hook up your new digital converter box, first, unhook your antenna from the back of your TV and connect it to the antenna in on the back of the digital converter box.  Next, using another co-ax cable, connect the TV output from the converter box into the back of your TV where the antenna used to be plugged in.  Lastly, power up the converter box, follow the instructions on the TV screen and you're ready for the Big Switch.

Problems?   You can call from 9 a.m. this morning to 6 p.m. at 936-853-5873.  After 6 p.m. You can call KTRE's message line at 936-853-8633, or at KTRE.com click on the Big Switch logo for advice and troubleshooting.  We're standing by ready to help you make the Big Switch.
