Need to know how to change and setup for use of antenna


Purchase your UHF/VHF antenna. The antenna can also be purchased at most electronic and retail stores. Consult your list from Step 1 and see how powerfulicon1.png the over-the-air signals are for your specific address. Purchase your antenna based on the broadcasting power you need to receive a clear picture on your TV. You might be able to get away with an indoor antenna if your signal strength is strong enough. If not, you'll need to purchase an outdoor antenna.

  • 4 Install your antenna (or have it done professionally) according to the building codes of your area. If you must use an outdoor antenna, it is a good ideaicon1.png to have the antenna professionally installed. This ensures that it is properly grounded on your roof, not too close to electrical wiring and stable during inclement weather.
  • 5 Hook the converter box up to your television using the cable that came with it (F Cable). Hook your antenna up to the converter Box. Turn on your TV and converter box. Tune your TV to channel 3 and press "Scan" on the digital convert box. Allow the box to scan for your available channels.
  • 6 View your picture and adjust your antenna accordingly for the clearest over-the-air feed. You should only need to make adjustments once. If you are having a difficult time getting a clear picture, use a signal strength indicator to see where you receive the most powerful signal.

    Magnavox TB100MW9 Digital TV Converter, Intermittent


    After about 6 years of service, my Magnavox TB100MW9 Digital TV Converter
    developed ann intermittent problem, where it would take several minutes to
    come on and then the picture would come and go. I took the cover off and
    found that by gently moving a vertically-mounted IC, I could reproduce the
    problem. From other units of the same model that I have, this design was
    only used for serial numbers 4000000 and up. The IC is mounted to a substrate
    board that is then soldered into the main board. Inspection of the pins on
    the main board that solder to the substrate showed that there were poor
    solder joints with visible cracks, probably dating to the original
    manufacture, and which took 6 years to oxidize and lose connection.
    Resoldering these joints, using a miniature iron along with visual guidance
    from a binocular microscope with variable zoom, solved the problem.

    Hello
    You heard is correct. Your roof antenna can be connected to your TV, after connecting it to a balancing coil adapter, usually called 'Balun Adapter" which converts the impedence from 300 to 75 Ohms. It can be bought for most of the electronic shops all around. Connect the antenna wire to it and then plug it to your TV antenna in socket. The stations will be very clear, and well defined. You may have to turn the roof top antenna towards the direction of the transmitting tower to get a well defined, ghost free image. OK.

    How does my mother hook up the antenna and get her TV to work (no cable)


    First, you'll want to make sure that her antenna has a coaxial cable (one of the thick round ones) coming from the antenna. Some older ones have a flat piece of plastic with two wires sticking out. These are less efficient, but if you have one, use a balun (a vhf-uhf matching transformer) to change to coax. You can google "balun" if you don't know what one looks like. Next, you'll need a digital converter box (if you don't have one already). Connect one end of the coax cable to the antenna (or balun) and the other to the jack on the converter box labeled "ant. in." Finally, using another coax cable, connect one end to the jack on the converter box labeled "to tv" and the other end to the jack on the TV labeled "ant. in." Finally, depending on your converter box, you will probably need to "scan " for tv channels. Follow the setup instructions with the converter box to do this. If you don't have the instructions, try googling the converter box company and model number to find the users manual. I hope this helps, and good luck! Sincerely, Der Strom

    I get no stations on my tv


    Use an Antenna that Provides Good Reception of All Channels
    • Most existing antennas used by consumers will provide good reception of DTV signals. (Before making any changes, try your existing antenna first to see of it allows you to receive all the stations you normally watch.)
    • For watching DTV signals, you will need an antenna that provides good reception of both VHF signals (channels 2-13) and UHF signals (channels 14-51) to reliably receive all of the digital signals broadcast in your area.
    • Many antennas are designed only for reception of either VHF or UHF signals (but not both). For example, the commonly used “rabbit ears” indoor antenna is only suitable for receiving VHF signals. To receive UHF signals, an indoor antenna should also include a wire loop or other feature for reception in that band.
    • The reception capabilities of TV antennas also vary considerably, so be sure to talk to retail consultants and look at information on the packaging and/or the Internet to make sure that any new antenna you may choose provides good reception of both VHF and UHF channels. In addition, if you use an indoor antenna and receive signals on VHF channels, you may need to use an antenna with amplification.
    • Many antennas currently being sold as “HDTV Antennas,” perform best at receiving UHF signals; some of these models state that they provide reception of signals on channels 7-13 but actually perform less well receiving those channels. If you obtain one of these antennas, be sure it provides good reception of all the VHF channels as well as the UHF channels.
    • To check for the DTV signals that are available at your location, use the DTV Reception Maps available at www.fcc.gov/mb/engineering/maps.
    Check Your Connections
    • Check that your digital-to-analog converter box or digital television is connected properly. Make sure your antenna is connected to the antenna input of your digital-to-analog converter box or digital television. If using a digital-to-analog converter box, also ensure that the antenna output of your converter box is connected to the antenna input of your analog TV. Refer to the owner’s manuals of your components if you are unsure of the proper connections.
    • Ensure that your components are plugged in and have their power turned on.
    • If you have a digital-to-analog converter box, tune your analog TV to channel 3. You should see a set-up menu or picture displayed on your TV screen. If you do not see a set-up menu or picture, tune your TV to channel 4. If you still do not see a set-up menu or picture, recheck your connections.
    Perform a Channel Scan
    • Digital-to-analog converter boxes and digital televisions have a button, usually on the remote control, that is labeled “set-up” or “menu” or some similar term. Press that button to access the set-up menu. Using the directional arrow buttons on your remote, scroll to the option that allows you to perform a “channel scan.” The channel scan will automatically search for digital broadcast channels that are available in your area. Consult the owner’s manual of your digital-to-analog converter box or digital television for detailed instructions on how to perform a channel scan for your device.
    • Once the channel scan is complete, you will be able to tune to the digital channels received by your antenna. You should perform a channel scan periodically to check whether additional digital channels have become available.
    Adjust Your Antenna
    • Small adjustments to your antenna can make a big difference in the number of digital channels you can receive. If you have an indoor antenna, try elevating it and moving it closer to an exterior wall of your home. After adjusting your antenna, perform another channel scan to see if your reception is improved.
    • While adjusting your antenna, it may be helpful to access the “signal strength meter” on your digital-to-analog converter box or digital television to determine whether your adjustments are improving the signals’ strength. The signal strength meter is usually accessed through the menu feature on your remote control. Refer to the owner’s manual of your device for detailed instructions on how to access its signal strength meter. Remember to do another channel scan after you have adjusted your antenna.
    • Television stations broadcasting in digital use both the VHF band (channels 2-13) and UHF band (channels 14-51). Many indoor antennas use “rabbit ears” for the VHF band and a “loop” or “bow-tie” antenna for the UHF band. Make sure you are using an antenna that covers both the VHF and UHF bands and have connected it properly.
    If You are Still Having Difficulty:
    • Until June 12, 2009, some stations will be operating at reduced power levels. If you are not receiving certain digital TV stations, this does not necessarily mean there is a problem with your antenna or digital-to-analog converter box or digital television. Check with the TV station to find out whether they are planning changes that will improve reception.
    • When an analog TV signal is weak or receives interference, static, snow, and distortion will often appear on the screen. Digital broadcasting will provide a clear picture; however, if the signal falls below a certain minimum strength, the picture can disappear. This “cliff effect” means that if you watch analog TV stations that have static and distortion, you may have to adjust or upgrade your antenna system.
    • Simple indoor antennas provide minimal performance that may not be suitable for your location. If you are unable to obtain satisfactory DTV reception with your current indoor antenna, you may wish to obtain an indoor antenna that includes features for better reception of UHF signals, as well as VHF, and/or an amplifier to boost the received signal (often referred to as an active indoor antenna).
    • Generally, an outdoor antenna will get better reception than an indoor antenna. However, the performance of outdoor antennas can degrade over time due to exposure to the weather. If you are having problems, check for loose or corroded wiring, broken antenna elements and that the antenna is pointed in the right direction.
    • Try to keep the length of wire between your antenna and digital-to-analog converter box or digital television as short as possible for best reception.
    • “Splitters” that are used to connect a single antenna to multiple digital-to-analog converter boxes or digital televisions reduce the amount of signal available to each device. If you are having problems, check whether reception is improved without the splitter. In some cases an “active” splitter that includes an amplifier can solve the problem.
    • If you are near a station’s broadcast tower, reception of that station, as well as other stations, can be impeded by strong signal “overload.” Consider using an “attenuator” or removing amplifiers to improve your reception.
    • If you decide to replace or upgrade your indoor or outdoor antenna, many types are available from electronics retail stores at a variety of prices. Websites such as www.antennaweb.org provide information on the locations of broadcast towers and the types of outdoor antennas appropriate for the stations you wish to receive. If you need assistance with upgrading your antenna system, check with a local antenna retailer or antenna installer.
    • To check for the DTV signals that are available at your location, use the DTV Reception Maps available at www.fcc.gov/mb/engineering/maps.
    Hope it may helps:

    Has anyone figured out IF such a digital anntenna exist yet?


    You don't need a digital antenna; any indoor UHF/VHF antenna will work. The antenna and the TV both connect to the converter box, not to each other.

    A standard rabbit ears (UHF/VHF) antenna with flat wire (300 ohm) connections can be hooked up to the coaxial cable that goes to the Antenna (RF in) jack on the converter box by using a balun (Radio Shack catalog # 15-1297, about $8). If you have an antenna with coaxial cable already attached, you don't need the balun.

    To connect the TV to the converter box, you need an adapter that has an F jack on one end and a 1/8" plug on the other (Radio Shack catalog # 278-257, about $5). The 1/8" plug on the adapter goes in the external antenna jack on the TV, and the other end connects to the coaxial cable that goes to the TV (RF out) jack on the converter box.

    Is a booster needed for the tb100mw9 dtv converter box?


    Best solution would be to use an outdoor antenna with an amplifier(booster)--but in some areas you may get by with an amplified set top antenna. Just all depends on your location..

    In perspective, I have an outdoor UHF dish and 10 foot VHF antennas with an amplifier and still i get only fair reception on outlying digital stations that normally come in clear on analog.


    Also--this converter box must complete the autoscan with an antenna attached, or else you'll receive NOTHING; not even by manually selecting a known digital channel.

    This #@!! box automatically locks out what it considers to be unused or weak channels. It makes the decisions and you're left with 'no signal' messages and nothing to do but try a rescan.....and you cannot add channels to any it has already found.

    Hand held casio tv vs digital signal


    I have my handheld Casio TV-980 up and running with a converter box. All I needed (in addition to the converter box and standard rabbit ears [UHF/VHF] antenna) was an adapter with an F jack on one end and a 1/8" plug on the other (Radio Shack catalog # 278-257, about $5). The 1/8" plug on the adapter goes in the external antenna jack on the TV, and the other end connects to the coaxial cable that goes to the TV (RF out) jack on the converter box. The adapter would have been a little cheaper at my local, independent electronics store, but they were sold out.
     
    If your antenna has flat 300 ohm wire connections, you'll need a balun (Radio Shack catalog # 15-1297, about $8) to connect it to the coaxial cable that goes to the Antenna (RF in) jack on the converter box.
     
    I’ve tried 2 different converter boxes with the handheld TV, and they both work well: Insignia (Best Buy’s house brand, same as Zenith) and RCA (from Target, same as Venturer), so any government coupon-eligible converter box should work.
     
    A few other tips:
     
    1. I always turn on the converter box before I turn on the TV. The cpnverter box seems to take control better that way.
     
    2. When I turn on the TV, the tuner doesn’t automatically go to channel 3 or 4 (where it should be set when using a converter box), and the picture quality is poor. If I use the tuner on the TV to get to channel 3 or 4, the picture quality is vastly improved. I have to do that every time I turn on the TV.
     
    3. Placement of the antenna is very important. I like to watch my handheld TV when I'm on the computer, and the reception is better the further away from the computer the antenna is located. I'm actually using a 6' coaxial cable for the antenna, but I could also have used 2 shorter cables with a coupler that has an F jack at both ends (Radio Shack catalog # 278-304, about $3).
     
    If your battery-operated TV does not have an external antenna jack, instructions for connecting it to a converter box can be found at
     
    http://www.digitaltvtrainer.com/national/showme-battery-tv-converter
     
    There are a few battery-operated converter boxes available, but for do-it-yourselfers, this web page also contains instructions for building a 12-volt converter box power supply.

    I bought a 32" conia tv and i cant get good reception! i have bought a amplified antenna and a hd set top box and still no good reception. my other tv's in the smae spot have had no reception issues....


    well it's the same as the days of old, the antenna has a range of reception. the further the sations antenna, the lager your antenna must be. just because you bought an amplified antenna does not mean you will receive the deep fringe station. also the antenna must be UHF and VHF to receive the broadcast in digital. most of the braodcasters have gone with the UHF band because it is more stable for the bandwith of digital broadcast. the UHF band is very directional as well, so you must be pointing to the broadcasters antenna. no set top antenna will work if you are further than 15 miles of the broadcasters antenna. the roof top UHF/VHF antenna with a preamp is the way to go. I have tested every compact antenna and unless you live in the city that the broadcast generates you will get no reception with these. terks are junk, and any small amplified antenna does not work if you are in low lying areas. roof top, roof top,.....ROOF TOP!!!!!
