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

Using a digital antenna to channel scan for broadcasted channels


It is no different that channel scanning for cable or analog over-the-air channels. You simply ensure that you have selected the digital tuner of the set prior to scanning. Some older flat panel sets do not have integrated digital tuners. A digital antenna alone will not allow these sets to receive digital broadcast channels. A converter box is needed to convert the digital broadcast signals to analog for the tuner in the set. Also, sets that do not have digital tuners may not support the resolution rate of digital TV broadcasts. Most digital HD broadcasts are 720p and a few are 1080p.

What does RF CH mean?


What is the difference between a RF channel and a virtual channel? The RF channel is the channel that the TV station uses to broadcast its signal. Before the conversion to digital, TV stations were normally identified by their channel number, and most people knew that a particular network was on a specific TV channel. While analog broadcasting was being phased out and all TV stations were converting to digital broadcasting, it was necessary for the TV stations to continue to broadcast their analog signals on their original RF channels, and also broadcast their digital signals on a different RF channel. However, since the TV station used their broadcast channel as part of their identification, they wanted to keep using the same channel number. To allow this to happen, the new digital television broadcasting standards (ATSC) provided TV stations the ability to continue to use their original channel number and also tell the TV set to tune to the new RF broadcast channel when their virtual channel number was selected. The original channel number is called the virtual channel number, and it will be followed by a period and a second number (3.1, 7.1, etc.).
One of the benefits of converting to digital for the TV stations is that they now have the ability to transmit more than one program at the same time on the same RF channel. The number of additional channels they can broadcast is determined by the resolution of the program (SD vs. HD, text only, music only, etc.). The second number in their virtual channel number indicates that one of the additional programming sources from the same TV station is being viewed (10.2, 10.3, 10.4, etc.).
When selecting an antenna, it is important to understand the difference between the RF broadcast channel and the virtual channel. Antennas are designed to receive specific ranges of RF channels, and the antenna needs to be selected for the RF channel you wish to receive. TV stations broadcast in two broad frequency ranges, called VHF and UHF. RF channels 2 through 13 are considered VHF, and RF channels 14 through 51 are considered UHF. In order to pick up the channels, the antenna has to be designed for the correct frequency range. It is very common today to find that TV stations using virtual channels 2 through 13 are actually using RF broadcast channels in the UHF range. Although not as common, some TV stations using virtual channels 14 through 51 are actually transmitting in the VHF range. An antenna designed for only UHF channels will not work effectively for RF broadcast channels in the VHF range, and an antenna designed for only VHF channels will not work effectively for RF broadcast channels in the UHF range.

Indoor antenna won't work on my cable ready set


You do have to make sure to switch the settings to an external antenna. You also will have to check that you have what is an analog signal available to you. If you antenna is analog it will only get analog broadcast. You may also need to switch to a digital tv antenna, The other thing is the range of you antenna. Most indoors, in a congested area will only pull in signal from about 20 to 25 miles out.

Does this product have a built in digital to analog converter?


This tv incorperates a full digital PLL tuner. It does not need a digital to analog coverter since analog signals is no longer used. All tv stations now broadcast with digital signal. It will receive local broadcast stations just connect a goood quality antenna to the tv. You will need to do a scan and the tv will store all of your local broadcasting stations within range. An outdoor antenna works best for digital signals.

I have a high definition digital TV have been tiring to get it to work with out having to get cabal but none of the antennas I have tried will work. I have been told i don't need a converter box by some...


Hello - Sure can, You do NOT need a converter box. The TV has digital tuners built in and all TV broadcasts are digital now.

You need to purchase and install an antenna based on how far you are from the actual broadcast towers and what kind of geography lies in between . Obviously I don't know where you live but for example; if you reside in a city where you are located within a few miles of the broadcast towers you could get by with an indoor rabbit ear antenna. Say you live in the suburbs of that city 10-20 miles away you could probably use a small attic or roof antenna. However, as in my case where I live approximately 35 miles away with some hills and buildings between me and the broadcast source I need to use a large roof antenna mounted on a tall mast.

The simplest way to find out what kind of antenna you need is to visit this LINK and use the "See Which TV Stations You Can Get on a Map" tool. This will give you a very good estimate of the antenna you need. Until then don't buy any more antennas.

When you get it setup right you will be very pleased. OTA (over the air) HD broadcasts are better in quaility than cable or satellite.

Enjoy and thanks for using Fix Ya

Will this TV work in a Motor Home with a standard roof antennae


Yes, it should work. Here's a little history.

Color TV was around as early as 1946, when CBS engineer Peter Goldmark -- who also had a hand in creating the long-playing vinyl record-- developed a method of broadcasting in color. Unfortunately, hiscolor-broadcasting standard wasn't compatible with existing TV sets,and in 1953, the National Television Standards Committee (NTSC) adoptedRCA's method of color broadcasting instead.
Go Digital
From there, we have incremental introductions -- the remote control, cable and satellite providers, and videocassette recorders (VCRs),et cetera. But in general, you don't have to have all those things towatch TV. If you live in an area near a broadcast station, you canstill plug a pair of rabbit ears into the antenna jack on the back ofyour set and get programming.
On Feb. 17, 2009, some analogchannels in the United States went dark -- with a few exceptions, therest did so on June 12. Regular broadcasters in the United States havecompleted the transition to digital television (DTV). The reason? Broadcasters moved their signals to another part of the radio spectrum.One reason for the switch was to free up space for police, fire andother public safety communications. The remaining portion of thebroadcast signal will be available to consumers for wireless services.

Theoriginal date for the analog-to-digital transition had to be movedbecause the FCC needed to raise awareness of the change among thepopulation. The idea was to make sure few people are left behind, buttheir efforts caused some confusion. To receive digital televisionsignals, some people need a converter box.
If you live in theUnited States and use a regular antenna to get television signals overthe air, this is probably the reason why you can't see your oldstations today.

I have tried 4 different antennas for my tv/dvd combo and cannot get all local channes. Need help


since the digital switch a few months ago, regular rabbit ear antennas wont work to pick up stations who are now broadcasting all digitally. make sure you are using the right antenna. one of the major retail stores can point you in the right direction. also, if you have the right antenna, run a scan for the channels. the frequencies may be a little different since the switch.

Insignia digital tv converter/indoor antenna no signal


Ok first I can save you some money. Take your "HDTV" antenna back. There is nothing different about the antennas needed receive analog and digital signals. If you got reception without your converter box, use the same antenna with your converter box.

Next let's see if there is a problem with the box. Hook up a television with the antenna. How many stations do you get? Now hook up the same television & antenna, but this time put the converter box between the antenna & the TV. Do not turn on the box. Now how many stations do you get? If the number is different, the box is not allowing the antenna signal to pass through. That is bad. You want your signal to pass through the box so you can still pick up stations that don't broadcast digitally. Some areas of the country will not be covered by digital stations from all major broadcasters when the changeover happens in Feb.

My suspicion is either you did not have the antenna hooked up to the converter box when you searched for channels OR you are in an area that is not yet broadcasting digitally.

I hope this helps you solve your problem. Thank you for using FixYa and feel free to add more questions here by using comments.

I bought a 32" conia tv and i cant get good reception! i have bought a amplified antenna and a hd set top box and still no good reception. my other tv's in the smae spot have had no reception issues....


well it's the same as the days of old, the antenna has a range of reception. the further the sations antenna, the lager your antenna must be. just because you bought an amplified antenna does not mean you will receive the deep fringe station. also the antenna must be UHF and VHF to receive the broadcast in digital. most of the braodcasters have gone with the UHF band because it is more stable for the bandwith of digital broadcast. the UHF band is very directional as well, so you must be pointing to the broadcasters antenna. no set top antenna will work if you are further than 15 miles of the broadcasters antenna. the roof top UHF/VHF antenna with a preamp is the way to go. I have tested every compact antenna and unless you live in the city that the broadcast generates you will get no reception with these. terks are junk, and any small amplified antenna does not work if you are in low lying areas. roof top, roof top,.....ROOF TOP!!!!!
