As part of the switch, WREX changed its digital channel from UHF 54 to digital channel VHF 13. So now to receive WREX-DT's new digital channel you may have to take several steps to restore reception.
All antennas, whether indoor or outdoor, must be a VHF/UHF type. For optimum performance an outdoor antenna works the best. An indoor antenna may have to be re-positioned by moving it around and changing the height or by placing the antenna by an exterior wall or window.

Perform a channel "auto scan" of all set top boxes and digital TV's. Consult the owner's manual for the digital-to-analog converter box or digital television for detailed instructions on how to perform a channel auto scan for your device. This will enable reception for most viewers, if not, see step 3.
Perform a factory reset/default. Consult the owner's manual for detailed instructions on how to perform a factory reset/default on your device. It may ask for a pass code or pin #, or enter 0000 if one has not been assigned to continue the reset. Then perform another channel auto scan.
