- On your Gotv remote control, enter the “menu” button.
- Navigate to the “Advanced Settings” option.
- Select “Installation”
- After selecting “installation” select ” tuning”.
- Choose the “automatic scan” option and press okay.
After these steps have been carried out, your Gotv will go through a short moment of scanning. After this scan, you can exit the menu or preferably reboot your Gotv. Now, channels 29 and 8 should come up.
