Analog to digital


If this is an older standard tv it is analog only it's not capable of processing digital tv transmissions in any way by itself you will need a digital tv converter box. thats true for antenna reception or cable systems that supply a digital signal,with digital cable systems you will probably need their digital converter box over the air & digital cable converters are not compatable with each other.

Can I connect two tv to one television converter box to watch local channels


If neither TV has a digital TV tuner, you will only be able to watch one channel on both TVs with one converter box. You will also need some sort of RF repeater if you want the person in the second room to change the station without moving the box. You will need a splitter/amplifier connected to the converter box TV out. (I'll assume you are using the coax out.) If you will only watch one TV at a time, then use an A/B switch on the converter box TV out.

If one of the TVs has a digital tuner, put the splitter/amplifier between the antenna and the converter box and the TV with the digital tuner.

Note: amplifier/splitters and switches do fail. If you get a "no signal" message, take out the splitter and connect the converter box directly to the antenna or one of the TVs depending on your set up.

I hope this helps.

Do I need a converter box for a Sony KD-27FS170?


When a TV hasn't digital tuner, it's necessary to add it a digital to analog channels converter box, but your TV already has digital tuner, you can switch between digital and analog tuning by pressing the digital/analog botton on the remote control.

How to connect to tv using converter boxs


DVD does not need to go through converter box.
The converter is only to receive the digital TV through the antenna. DVD might have to switch to another connection on the TV, and if it doesn't have enough connections, you have a problem.

No this TV is not HD ready. However it is digital (ATSC) ready meaning now that most of the analog brodcasts have stopped it will receive the digital broadcasts so you don't need a converter box. Since it can only display 480i resolution it is not HD ready. You would need a TV that can display 720p or better to be considered HD ready.

Is my Toshiba 27AF42 TV bought in 2002 capable of receiving digital signals? And whether it is or not, how do I integrate my VCR into the TV and my converter box? Right now the TV is hooked up with the...


This is probably way too late an answer, but I just ran across your post. No TV made in 2002 has digital tuning, so you would need the converter box to watch off-the-air digital broadcasts.

To hook up the pieces, take the converter box output and run it to the VCR antenna input jack. Then run the output from the VCR to the TV's antenna input. Leave the VCR and TV both on channel 3 (or channel 4 if that's what you have the converter box output set for).

To watch TV, leave the VCR off and the signal from the converter will pass right through to the TV. You'll do your channel changing with the converter box, so the TV stays on channel 3. To record a program, just remember that the VCR will always need to be tuned to channel 3 (4), since it will have to be on the converter box output channel. Again, you pick the actual TV channel with the converter.

Note that this arrangement will allow you to program your VCR to record while you are out, but there are some limitations. You can't record things on different channels, since you won't be home to switch channels on the converter. The VCR is always recording on channel 3 (4), and the program you'll be recording is whatever channel the box is set for. If another program comes on on a different channel later, you won't be around to switch. But you could program different recording times on the same channel, anyway. You also can't record one program while watching a different channel, unless you had a second converter box.

Hope you can still use the information provided here. If this has been helpful, please take a moment to rate this a fixya. Thanks for asking here!

Have a problem


Currently, your switch box likely has several inputs, which as you said are occupied by your DVD Player, XBOX, and your television source. The output of the switch is then fed to your TV.

What you will need to do is insert the DTV converter box BEFORE the switch box. If you have an analog antenna on your TV (rabbit ears) you will need to put the converter box between your antenna and the switch box (the cables, not the box itself) so that your wiring goes like this:

Antenna ---- converter box ---- Switch box
XBOX ---------------------------------switch box
DVD -----------------------------------switch box

And the switch box still goes to the TV. However, you do not NEED to use the converter box until February of 2009.

Nope. Not a digital Television. I'm guessing it's an older one. Most TV's sold nowdays are Digital TV ready.
