Can't Select TV as Input Type

I can't select the TV Input type on my xbr65x850b. It's greyed out and I assume there's some particular setting that is causing this.

Hi Bberonda, 

 

Welcome and thank you for considering the SONY Community!

 

We're sorry to hear that you're not able select TV input. If a particular input can't be selected or greyed out, it means that there is no device connected to port. Are you using an over-the-air antenna or a cable box? Most cable boxes use HDMI input. When using an antenna, an auto program needs to be done to be able to select TV input.

 

Regards,

~Ralph

Re: Can't Select TV as Input Type

I have the same issue.  I am trying to select "Antenna" as input for watch TV but it is not listed.  It is connected.  I can in fact watch antenna TV by opening the "Google Play and TV"  App and hitting the Guide button and selecting a channel.  However I cannot connect the "Watch TV" icon to the proper input.

 

I have a 55x810c and recently installed a software update.

 

I am not sure what an "auto program" is.
