Smart antenna is a device that connects to the antenna, and send information on the channel received, adjusting itself for the best reception of that channel.

Do I need a digital convertor box to get the DTV signals or just the antenna?


You will need a digital-to-analog converter box and an antenna. The TV only has an NTSC (analog) tuner.

I hope this helps.

I have a wd-60735 tv if i hook up a convertor box to it i get air channles if i just hook up the antenna to it it wont find any channells what could be the problem? Thanks


As of 6/12/09, the over-air broadcast signals went to digital (ATSC) only. Your set does not have and ATSC tuner so it can not receive the new digital signals. The converter box converts the ATSC signals to the NTSC channel 3 or 4.

I get poor recption on digital convertor box while watching satellite. But works fine for viewing local channels. JT


Digital converterboxes will down-convert all signals to 480p at best.  No converter box should be used with the satellite signal only antennas.

The instructions for our DTA800 digital to analog converter box for over the air waves for TV signals say since the signal is too weak that we need a SMART ANTENNA. What is that and what do you...


Hey boykinpierce,

The phrase "Smart Antenna" is often used to describe a multi-directional antenna or antenna array. These types of antennas are able to detect and automatically adjust to any changes in the TV signal strength you receive, and can generally be obtained through most major retailers. They primarily are used in areas where digital signals are weaker or somewhat inconsistent, and will attempt to optimize the signals they do receive before sending them to a TV or digital converter box.

Please keep in mind that while some DTV digital-to-analog converter boxes may have built-in Smart Antennas, this particular model (RCA DTA800) does not appear to have this feature.

If you're still not quite sure what to look for, please remember that you can always speak with a home theatre sales agent at your local Best Buy™ store for more information.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

It's not a digital hi-def tv, so you either need a cable/sat box..or a converter once hi-def goes in and analog stops.
