It only has the NTSC tuner. To recieve HD signals, you need to add a converter box.

Most cable and satellite companies by arrangement with the FCC still should work with the analog sets using their converter box without the need for a digital converter.

If all else fails, they do make for a nice computer monitor.

I cannot change from the ATV to the DTV. ANY clues on how to do this??


Got to know the model number of your tv. If the set is only atv then you would need a decoder box to convert digital signal from antenna or cable company to analog channel or to composite input on the tv.

How do I hook up Coby 5" black & white TV to my digital converter box ?


You will need a digital to analog converter which you can get at Radio Shack, Best Buy and most big box retail outlets or online. Your Coby is most likely analog and will require the digital signal to be converted to an analog signal from the digital converter box to the TV. UNLESS the digital converter box has analog (round connectors on the back) then you just need an analog RCA cable (which you can also get almost anywhere even your local CVS/Walgreens) to make the connection.

After the DTV switch, should I be placing the cable cord into the dtv output to receive all the DTV channels? Protron PLTV 3250 is the set I have and it doesn't seem to get the DTV channels like my other...


Your question is confusing. If you have cable, you don't need a DTV converter box.

If your cable company has switched to digital cable, they will provide you a box, and the cable should go from the wall into the box, then into your TV.

If you don't have cable but instead rely on an antenna, then the wire will go from the antenna into the DTV box, then from the DTV box into the back of the TV. If you're using a regular coaxial cable to go from the DTV box into the television, the TV should be set to channel 3. If you're using the red-yellow-white RCA wires between the DTV box and the television, the TV must be tuned to "Aux," "Line In," "Input Select," or whatever it's labeled on your particular set.

DTV Converter Box


If there is no digital tuner built into the tv or unless you subscribe to Cable TV or Satellite service you will still need a converter to view tv with rabbit ears (air broadcast).

Good luck!

Digital or Analog>


I believe this tv has a built in digital tuner. To verify this, using your remote attempt to change the channel to say 3-1 or 3.1 if you have a digital tuner this is how a digital channel will show up. Also if you go into your menu under channel scan you should see a choice named dtv. And finally on the back you will have a coax connecter named dtv. The latter is not always true. If it does turn out to be standard format tv, you can still purchase a digital set-top box that will decode digital for you. Keep in mind that you must have a good uhf off air signal in your area to recieve digital signals. Good luck.
