Note: If the GOtv decoder does not complete scanning, it will automatically take you to the signal detection screen. At this point, you may need to point the GOtv Antenna in the direction of the GOtv transmitter – and move the GOtv antenna until the signal is most reliable. This is the point where you should permanently fix your GOtv Antenna.

Find a clear site that has no obstructions between the GOtv Antenna and the signal transmitter. Point the GOtv Antenna towards the transmitter.
