I have a Sony KDL46W4100. I can not pick up any digital channels through a antenna. I have tried a flat HDTV RCA antenna and a uhf /vhf roof top antenna. I've placed a different tv with the same antenna next to it and that tv picks up digital channels. Any help will
be appreciated.

Assuming that this models tuner is capable of receiving digitaltransmissions, i would guess your problem is the same as many facewhich is that the fuses on the tuner have blown (Common Fault). Have aread at whirlpool forums and the associated youtube video on how a possible fix can be accoplished if your unit is out of warranty.
Also remember manufacturers warranty is different for your statutory warranty rights under law to get it fixed.

You do know that you have to "auto program" before you can receive any signal from an antenna? Auto program seeks out signals in your reception area.
