Re: connecting to digital converter box
If your tv just has the yellow / white, this means the audio is MONO, wich means 1 speaker, not Stereo, just connect the white onr, and leave the red one out, or... you could connect the audio to your stereo!

cable box needs connected to the antenna in on the vcr..the setup is ..cable box..vcr combo ..tv ..unless your tv has multiple inputs like ours..most of the new ones require a digital signal..it may reqiure a converter box..
A converter box is not needed to connect a DVD player to a TV. However, you do need a single cable with red, white, and yellow adapters orconnecterson one end and at least yellow and white on the other end. Ok if you have red; just don't worry if there isn't a hole to plug into.
The antena hole input in the Converter box that where said the input source said Ant.,use a antena like a digital antena,roof antena or a rabit ear antena.Hook up ur source of the antena go in that hole.The hole input said out to tv in the Converter box,use a cable that was supply to u,came with the Converter box.Use that cable plug in the Conveter box tv hole said out to tv.The other end of that cable go to ur tv Ant. hole.Now u got it all hook up.Turn ur tv to channel 3 or 4 now u got a menu from the Converter box,go down to the highlight word said scan channels,push that highlight word.Ater the scan are finish,u will now get all the free DTV channels.
Here is the manual:
Follow the instructions for connecting a cable box to connect your converter box. Front panel buttons can be used to make menu selections if you do not have a remote.
On the back of your converter box and TV/VCR there are two coxial connections an (OUT) and an (IN): Step 1. Connect the coxial cable from the antenna to the (IN) connection on the back of the converter box. Step 2. Connect one end of a spare coxial cable to the (OUT) connection on the back of the convert box. Step 3. Connect the other end of the Coxial cable to the back of your TV.

If you recieve your signal on this TV over the Air (Rabbit Ears) then Yes you will need a digital Converter for this TV. If you are hooked up to Cable or a Satalite Dish, your TV will continue to work without the converter box.
I need to leave my TV on channel 3 and set the converter to the channel I want to record. When programming for future recording, it's always from channel 3, not the channel I want the converter displaying.
