Hi, I'm new to the group. just seeing if anyone can help? I purchased a JVC LT-50CA890 Android TV 50\" Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR LED TV to put in a bedroom. I wanted to continue watching SKY using a magic eye.
After a bit of research, I believe you need an analog connection and the JVC doesn't have that setting. Is there anything I can do without purchasing another new TV? thank you to anyone who is able to assist.

Are you sure the TV doesn't have an analogue tuner ? I thought most TVs still did, despite the lack of analogue terrestrial TV signals. Try exploring the set-up / tuning menus. If an analogue tune isn't available as part of the automatic tuning process, you may need to 'Add new TV signal' or something similar.

BTW - an analogue SD signal distributed via coax is likely to look awful on a large 4K TV due to the huge amount of upscaling required. If you've upgraded from an SD or HD Ready set (and possibly even a Full HD set), you might be in for a bit of a shock !

Try this.
“Connecting an Analogue Device
If you have connected an analogue device such as a video recorder via the
aerial socket on your TV you will have to tune it in using Analogue mode. Ensure
the device is switched on before you start the tuning process.
1. Press the MENU button, press the
buttons to select INSTALL AND
RETUNE and press OK.
2. Select AUTOMATIC CHANNEL SCAN (RETUNE) and press OK.
3. Press the
buttons to select ANALOGUE and press OK.
4. Press the
buttons to select YES then press OK. The search will
automatically start, this will not delete your Digital channels, so don't worry!
5. When the search has finished the EDIT CHANNEL LIST will appear. Your
analogue channel will be at the end of the channel list”

In the same boat with a JVC 40" Android TV. Cannot get an older model Amstrad SKY Box to connect through analogue. The option in the menu is greyed out in the settings for Manual Analogue Scan.
Assuming now that the TV does not have an analogue tuner.

Make sure the TV isn’t set to an AV input.
That often greys out the tuning menu.
