Yes.  You'll just run the connections through the dig converter box...instead of however it's connected now.  ANT In/ANT out.

Why if my antena is hooked to my dvd player is it not getting channels but my tv is if dvd player is turned off


The reason probably is because all broadcast TV is digital, and the em-55 tuner is set for analog channels. It cannot receive today's broadcasts "thru the air" because channel 2 for example is not broadcast, rather channel 2.1, 2.2, etc.

You can use the signal with a new TV, but when you turn ON the em-55, it inserts channel 3.
Most all TV here has what I call sidebands, and some have as many as 11, so the tv can be set for 3.1, or 3.2 or 3.3.

Even if you have a digital-to-analog device, the em-55 will not receive any .1, .2, .3, .4 and so on. I verified this recently reconnecting my old antenna to the converter then to several VCR's and DVD players.

Turn off the em-55, and the dot channels pass through the RF connectors..
Some DISH, cable direct TV receivers convert the signal to ch 3.

I have an analog tv (coax cable) and a new dvd (av plugs) player. How do I inexpensively connect them? i saw the solution posted about the rf modulator. I have a digital to analog tv convertor. Is this...


NO. An RF modulator and your digital-to-analog (DAC) TV converter are 2 different devices. The DAC will convert over-the-air (OTA) digital television signals from your antenna to analog NTSC format so your older analog TV can receive OTA broadcasts. The RF modulator converts base-band video (composite cable/RCA connector, or S-Video cable connector) to channel 3 or 4, so you can watch video/audio on your set. To use both the RF mod. and the DAC converter to the same TV, use an A/B switch for F-connector coax, or follow the directions for the RF modulator to make the correct connections.

Craig cvd506 convertor will do channel scan but will not find any channels.


The only reason this would happen is if it is not receiving a signal. Make sure that all of the cables are tightly inserted into the jacks and are connected to the antenna. If this doesn't work, chances are that your antenna is not the right type to receive strong signals in your area. This is common if you live too far (50 (?) miles) from the broadcasting station. The best type of antenna in this case is a combination UHF/VHF rooftop-mount antenna, designed for deep-fringe reception. I have one of these and it works like a charm. Good luck! -Der Strom

Would like to record from my tv to my magnavox dvd/vcr combo box


If I understand your request right, You do not have cable or satellite box.
You can not record from your TV. You use the TV as a monitor from the dvd/vcr combo box. What the box receives is what shows on the TV. So you will have to have a digital convertor hooked to the (antenna in) dvd/vcr combo box, (antenna out to the tv antenna in) Depending on the antenna you are using that is on the other end of your cable-in coax connection this will hook to your antenna in on the digital convertor box. If your cable is hooked up and operating correctly and directly to the tv that is digital ready you probabbly have a good picture. When the vhf/uhf signal was transmitted you could go from the dvd/vcr to the tv with no problem. But now that the signal is digital and the tv is set for digital the dvd/vcr will not pass a digital signal to the tv. Best suggestion, you have to get a digital dvd/vcr receiver. If you have more question please contact me.

Loss of TVGOS signal ...


In most cases, you won't have to get a digital antenna, since the "digital switch" just changes the frequencies on which the networks broadcast. Spend the $50 to get a converter box and hook it up between your antenna and the DVR. If you still don't get the TVGOS signal, then you will have to get the antenna.

No antenna signal nor found channels for my area.


You'll need a better antenna to solve your problem. With the new digital broadcasting, signal strength is everything. With analog, a weak signal would give you a watchable but fuzzy picture. A weak signal with digital gives you nothing, or possibly a picture that freezes up or breaks into blocks (pixellation). The only cure is a better antenna, either an amplified indoor antenna or something outside.

Sad to say, there's no guarantee that will work. If you live too far from the station, or have hills, buildings or other obstructions that block the signal, you just may not be able to pick up some channels. In some areas people have found they get no reception at all.

At www.antennaweb.org there's a tool that will tell you what stations are around your area and how far. It's designed to help you figure out what kind of antenna you might need.

Can't get any channels!


Most likely you have a problem with signal strength. Unlike the old analog broadcasts, where a weak signal just made the picture fuzzy, a weak signal on the digital channels isn't even detected. You will need a better antenna. Depending on how far you live from the stations, and what kinds of obstructions (buildings, hills, and such) are in the way, you might need to put up an outdoor antenna. But try an amplified indoor antenna first. You may find that's all you need.

If this has helped you, please take a moment to rate the solution. Thanks for asking here!
