We failed our test

We just failed the digital TV readiness test. All channels said that I needed to upgrade the analog TV that I was using. My TV is a 5 month old LG (LG37LC7D), and I use an antenna in my attic pointed via compass to the transmitter (UHF end foreward). I have been receiving 8,10, 13, 21, 31, and all of their substations for some months now. But I am very confused.

Failed Test

It sounds like you're probably still on the analog tuner, not the digital one. On your remote their should be an input, source and just straight DTV button that will switch your tuner. If you don't have that option, you need to do a manual channel scan. Should you have anymore questions you can call the WXXI DTV Hotline at 1-866-386-9994.
