Do I need a Set Top Box Converter?

I Have a Dynex 13 inch TV Model DX-R13TV. The manual says one feature is "Integrated Digital Tuner-You can view digital broadcasting without using a Digital TV Set-Top Box" Does this mean that I can continue using my rabbit ears that I now have and do not have to purchase the box that the government is sending out coupons for? Will I get good reception as I do now. Thank you.

    Where can I find the switch to change to digital? That sounds like a very helpful solution. Thank you.

Yes you can continue to use Rabbit ears if you are close enough to the station. Most digital stations are operationg at reduced power. Switch it to digital and let it scan for channels, you may be plesantly surprized at what it finds.

    I have no direct experance with your model, Explore the onscreen menues or read the users manual.

    There is no further help I can provide, other than to assure you that an attenea for a digital tuner is exactly the same as an antenea for the old analog antennea. Look for an option for analoge pass

    through. Somewhere you will find an option to search for digital stations.

Attach tv converter box


Everything is digital now. You will need a digital converter box. You will connect an antenna to it, and then connect the box to your tv. The box will come with it's own remote. Your tv will be set to channel 3 or 4 (depending on the converter box you get), and you will control the stations with the remote that came with the converter. You can get them at any electronics store.

Input signal.


You should be able to connect the TV to the antenna without the tuner converter box. If you still do not get signal you may need some type of signal amplifier between the antenna and TV. Hope that helps.

Vhf is not picking up signal, no image


Well since all TV is now broadcast in High Definition that might be why you are no longer able to tune in a station. You will need the converter box.

DTV hookup for an RCA XL-100


Try the $40 RCA DTV Tuner/Converter from Wal-Mart. Connect your existing VHF/UHF antenna (if you don't have one, Wal-Mart sells them too) to the antenna input on the back of the converter and the converter to the antenna input on the back of the TV. If it has only twin lead antenna inputs instead of the standard coaxial type, you'll need a simple twin-lead/coaxial connector, which is about $5. Tune to VHF channel 3 or 4 (set your converter switch correspondingly), turn on the conveter box and follow the onscreen instructions. If you see static, use the automatic or manual fine tune control until you see a clear picture of the menu screen.

Does my TV have a digital tuner?


If your portable set was made before March 1, 2007, then it almost certainly does not have a digital tuner and would require a converter box. (After that date, the FCC requires all TV's to have the digital tuning.)

Even though it's small, it's still a TV with a standard tuner. So you could use it with a converter box if you really wanted to. You would need to connect the box to the TV's external antenna connector with an appropriate adapter. Then the TV would stay on channel 3 (or 4) while you change channels through the converter box. But just like any other set without the new tuner, once the regular broadcasting ends it won't be able to pick up digital channels.
