Did you go through the complete setup by putting your TV on Channel 3 and letting it scan all of your channels or are you just hooking up the box and not doing this? Make sure the box is set to "blue" which is On and do the complete setup.

Sony Wega TV --24F... does it need a converter?


No. all flat screens have converter chip built in.
If you are having problems getting channels, make sure you go to the settings, and broadcast settings, and make sure it is on AIR for regular tv, or CATV for cable.

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!

Want to use DTV converter with my Toshiba 32AF42


If you're not on cable or satellite, you will need an antenna to get off-the-air reception. This TV does not have a DTV tuner, so you will also need the converter box. Depending on how far you are from the broadcasters' transmitters, you might be able to get away with an indoor antenna. Or you might find that you get few channels with the inside antenna and then you'll need something outdoors. There are a number of styles to choose from.

The antenna hooks to the converter box, and the converter box then goes to the TV. It can be hooked to the TV's "ANTENNA" connector. This should be covered in the set's manual where it shows you how to connect a regular antenna. With the box, your TV will always stay on channel 3 or 4 (depends on how you set up the box) and you'll change channels on the converter.

You can also connect the converter to the TV with audio and video cables like you would a DVD player. Most of the "coupon-eligible" converter boxes include direct video and audio output jacks. This gives you better picture and sound quality than by hooking it to the TV's antenna input.

Hooking up a converter box is like going back in time to when cable TV was new and you had to get a converter box from your cable company. Same way of hooking it up. Hope this helps!

DTV converter Box and Zenith system 3


I have the same problem.... On the back of the tv, there are three coax spots. One is for Cable, one is antenna decoder, and another is a loop. I have had zero luck getting any of those to receive the signal. Instead i have ran my digital signal to a vcr, then ran rca cables from it to my tv. I then put my tv in vcr mode, or aux depending on where you hooked it up. You can watch tv through your vcr this way.

Receive one channel with Coverter Box


Make sure those 6 channels are also being broadcast in Digital format also, otherwise your converter box won't have a digital signal to convert for your TV. The switchover date is early next year I believe.

Digital to Analog converter...no signal


One of the problems with digital reception is if the signal is not strong enough for the converter box/or built in tuner on a new TV- you will not get any picture at all. If you followed all the directions-and the converter box shows no channels- then you do need a better antenna. I don't know how far you are from the broadcast antenna, but a good rule of thumb is if you live 10 miles away, buy an antenna that is good for twice that distance, or further. They are rated in miles of reception
