Question about Zenith C27A24T 27" TV

Airplane interference in converter box

We installed the converter box, our tv used rabbit ears. It works fine most of the time, except when a plane flies over the house (we are on the take-off/landing path for the SeaTac airport), every time a plane goes overhead, we loose the signal, the flow of images stops to then slowly update only a few squares of the screen at the time, giving us a broken, annoying image and we loose part of the program for anywhere from 10-30 seconds. It's like trying to watch a movie on-line on a computer when the connection is not fast enough and it has to stop, download more of the program and then continues, except that on TV you just miss the segment.

Anything we can do about that other then going satellite or cable?

    We are also having this problem with the digital signals that our local stations are now broadcasting with. Thankfully most of our locals are using two signals at the moment (one analog and one digital) and, though the picture flutters on the analog when an airplane goes overhead, we can still watch the program. When digital-only comes around, television will be unwatchable as we get many planes throughout the day and night.

    Moving the rabbit ear antenna does nothing to help, I had considered an outdoor antenna up on the roof for a stronger capture of the digital signal, but then I figure that the cost and work of that setup, which may not even work, won't be worth it when the cable company is offering local stations (plus a few others) for $10 a month for the first year.

No reception with rabbit ears


Check to see if you have the "Rabbit ears" plugged into the correct spot and you are on "Analog tv" if you are trying to use digital tv on "Rabbit ears" it can't send out a strong signal like the areal ontop of a house. You may need to get an adapter to broadcast a stronger signal but even better if you can connect to roof antena.

You will once again, purchase a converter box to receive an over the air channel. I don't think you will have to really worry about using an over the air mode on the TV. It may be in the menu, but will work otherwise after being placed on channel 3 to receive through the converter box. The rabbit ears will be connected to the converter box itself.

Digital Converter connection with old Rabbit Ears TV


First, make sure your connections are right. The rabbit ears need to be disconnected from the TV and reconnected to the converter box. Then the output cable from the converter box connects to the TV. Then try turning the rabbit ears or re-locating them near a window if the wire is long enough. You should be able to get some signal. A newer indoor antenna may help you pull in some of the weaker stations.
