Several years ago, I purchased a small hand held portable, TV. So I face the same problem as do many others. What happens when the country goes from digital to analog? Well, I took the time to call casio's tech supoprt, and the answer they gave me was to cal back in, 2009. Because they did not know either what to do. May we can use them as a paper weight.

Re: Hand held casio televisions
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.

Here is a video of it being used with a VCR. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfOHgWIXPJA It would be the same with a converter box. Although you would have to use coaxial cable with the antenna connector from radio shack. I have been looking for a way to convert analog portable's to digital but have come up empty handed.
I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM BUT LAST NIGHT I PLACED THE TV NEAR THE FREEVIEW BOX AND THE TV JUST PICKED UP THE SIGNAL.A DIGITAL CHANNEL AT THAT ASWELL.NEAR PERFECT IMAGE.I DONT KNOW HOW THIS COULD BE ADAPTED TO USE THE PORTABLE AWAY FROM OFF THE FREEVIEW BOX.ANY SUGGESTIONS?
Because the unit isn't likely to have an coaxial external cable input, there is no simple way to achieve this.
Full-size sets not equipped for digital signals can accept the down-converted signal from a converter box that receives the digital signal and converts it to NTSC standards for older sets.
Direct reception of the new signal requires an ATSC tuner and there is no way to provide that for your hand-held.
It would be possible to use the output of a converter box clipped onto the antenna of your Casio and see the channels the converter box can receive but your hand-held wouldn't be very portable anymore.
According to CASIO website in Japanese, their portable TVs are not supporting Digital broadcasting and decided to cease production. Thus it will not receive Digital broadcasting. Although, EV-570 composite AV Input should still work for Camera, VCR, etc., I have not tried to connect to the DAC box. My portable DVD without TV tuner worked with DAC box and now can watch digital TV program!
