By Nick Miles
The Sony KDL-40W4100 is a high-definition LCD TV from Sony's BRAVIA series. Along with featuring 1080p native resolution with a 120Hz refresh rate and 30,000:1 contrast ratio, the 40-inch TV can also be programmed with the TV Guide On Screen programming guide. The TVGOS displays current and future programming for the broadcast channels that you are receiving as well as personalized advertisements and programming suggestions.
Connect the VHF/UHF or VHF antenna to the "CABLE/ANTENNA" input on the back of your TV.
Navigate to the "Settings" tab on the TV's "Xross Media Bar" and select "Initial Setup."
Select your language.
Run the "Auto Program" utility. This will scan for all available channels from the antenna source connected to your TV.
Press the right arrow on the remote to set up the TV Guide On Screen service. Once the service is added, you will need to leave the TV off for 12 to 24 hours for the TV to fully receive all of the program listing information for the channels that you receive.
Press the "Guide" button on the remote to open the TV Guide On Screen menu.
