All LCD tv's made in the last 10 years support digital tv out of the box and do not need a converter box. However if you want to pick up local stations over the air, you may need an external antenna. Otherwise if you have cable tv or other services, you can connect your service to your tv directly.
You may also want to call your service provider (if applicable) if you have issues connecting it to your tv.
If you want to receive off-the-air broadcasts (i.e., you have no cable satellite system), then yes, you'll need a digital tuning adapter. This set has only an analog tuner.
If you are on a cable system, you might not need a converter box, but it depends on your cable provider. Some systems still offer basic cable service without a box, and you can see what channels you'll pick up with the TV set for "cable" tuning. Other systems require a digital converter box or "digital transport adapter" for any reception. You'll need to check with your cable provider to find out.
prior computers have builtin network adapters that functioned as cable connection either dial up phone lin or ethernet cable connections. Computer of the recent generation have wireless adaptors that derive connective within radius of modems also known as wifi. Observe the computers made models as reference to ascertain whether requires cable connection to network or capable of wireless reception. Computers that are provided network structures by an expert would recognise either as requiring cable or wireless. Depending on the coniditon of computer structures requesting to establish a network structure is acheivable. Refer with a computer networkin technician that would evaluate the devices at the location to ascertain the requisite structures to establish networking telecommunications. For example, refering with an expert ascertains that the computer requires modems to capture the signals or modern devices require a miniature adaptor device attacked to the computer.
optimum reception of colour requires a good signal and will generally mean that an outdoor aerial must be used. the exact type and positioning of the aerial will depend upon your particular area your dealer or service personnel can best advise you on which aerial to use in your area. before connecting the aerial cable,turn off all main power switches. vhf or uhf it must first go to the media box and you will see the input aerial cable connect it there and the output go to the back of your tv that indicates aerial input terminal.
Check the power cable
The My Book and Elements desktop devices use a power adapter to operate the drive and hardware. Portable devices rely on the data cable for power and data.
Check the power cables are well seated in the external drive (applies only to Desktop external drives), and also the AC socket the power adapter is connected
Connect the device directly to the computer. For troubleshooting it's best to ensure the data cable is connected directly to the PC or laptop. Do not connect the device through a non-powered USB hub. Similarly make sure the power adapter is connected directly to a wall outlet, to rule out a degraded surge protector or power strip
If this is a My Passport or Elements Portable drive, ensure the data cable is connected securely to the drive, and the computer's USB port. For troubleshooting only, do not connect via a USB hub, to rule out power related concerns
My Passport and WD Elements Portable devices may benefit using a Power Booster Cable to use two USB ports, in order to provide extra power to the device
Use a USB hub with its own power adapter. These units provide 5V, and up to 1000mA to each USB port; and may be a good alternative, if a Power Booster Cable is not available
Test with another power adapter. Take note of the input requirements at the power port of the desktop device for voltage and amperage. Be sure the output of the power adapter does not provide voltage higher than the device's input requirements. Higher amperage will not harm a device, but higher voltage will destroy a device
Check the data cable
Data cables can degrade over time from bending and flexing. The connectors can get bent, or the internal pins may corrode from moisture or other contaminates.
Well you can follow the below steps - 1. Inspect the antenna for any signs of damage. Identify and examine the power adapter cord and the coaxial antenna cable for any rips tears or other defects. 2. Plug the adapter into the antenna's power adapter socket. It will be labeled "12V DC/Adapter". If you are using an antenna that does not require power, such as rabbit ears, you may skip this step. 3. Next connect the antenna cable to the television using the TV's "Antenna In/75 Ohm" input jack. Make sure the antenna connector is twisted tightly into place. Place the antenna on a sturdy surface such as the top of an entertainment center. If you have an older analog TV that is a non high definition ready/capable display and are using a digital to analog converter box, generally, the antenna will plug into the input of the converter and the output of the converter will plug into the antenna input of your TV. 4. Plug the antenna's power supply into a 120V AC wall outlet. This will turn the antenna on. If you are using the "rabbit ears" style antenna, make sure that the each section of the antenna is fully extended. This will give you the best reception. 5. Turn on the TV and check for digital reception. You will know that you are receiving digital signals because the picture will be clear and free of any analog "snow" or other artifacts. Digital TV channels have DVD quality picture and sound.
Not necessarily. You can use the normal connecting cable but you may not get HDTV picture.
Better is to connect through HDMI cable where you can view HD pitures on the channels transmitting HD programmes
U have paid cable, u don't need the converter box.Not even the analog tv require the coverter box, if u have paid cable or satalite tv or telicom signal.All ur tvs is hook up to the Comcast Cable correct?That all u need not, require the converter box.
