Digital tv converters and digital tv for that matter require a good signal to operate, a good quality rabbit ears available in a number of stores will get you some local stations. To get maximum reception you will require an outside antenna.

Programming a regular antenna to my curtis mathes cm27002s tv


If that is the big, old, thick picture tube style television (and I think it is) you cannot use it to get over the air (antenna ) reception with regular antennas any longer. Broadcast (antenna) television is now digital and older television sets don't decode it any longer. The good news is you can buy a converter on ebay etc. Hook the antenna to that and then connect the converter to the television.

Can I conveRt an analoge signal to digital for Casio tv


The need depends on what country you live in. In the US,Canada,and Mexico there are no longer any analog TV signals Everything broadcast over the air is digital. A digital to analog converter is available so older TV's without a built in digital tuner can be used.

How do I get my to work with an antenna


If its a standard analog tv made before the digital changeover it will no longer work directly connected to an antenna as there are no more analog tv transmissions,to use it you will have to get a digital to analog converter box to connect between the tv & antenna it will convert the incoming digital signal to analog so the tv can work again,the same goes fore vcr's they will no longer record directly from an antenna.Some cable systems still supply the cable signal in analog older tv's will still work without boxes on these systems.

Analog to digital


If this is an older standard tv it is analog only it's not capable of processing digital tv transmissions in any way by itself you will need a digital tv converter box. thats true for antenna reception or cable systems that supply a digital signal,with digital cable systems you will probably need their digital converter box over the air & digital cable converters are not compatable with each other.

I have an older Sharp Aquos TV - model # LC-32G4U. I am trying to connect a digital antenna but it doesn't work. Anyone know if I need a separate digital tuner for this TV? Or what else might be t


There is no difference between a "digital" and analog antenna. Either antenna will capture the signal. What you need is a digital converter box to convert the over air digital signal to the older analog type signal your TV needs. You connect the antenna to the digital converter box, and the digital converter box to the TV.
Several years ago, the US government forced peopel to buy digital converter boxes or newer TVs that could pick up the digital signal. Either get a digital converter box or a new TV.

I have an older model Ihome that is mounted in my kitchen, I can no longer play tv stations on it. What do I do to fix this problem?


All broadcasting in the US is digital now, so older tuners won't pull in anything. Get a digital TV converter box and antenna for it or go with Cable.

Ebay or Google search "digital tv converter box"

How do i cahange my reception From analog to digital?


The Dynex LCD-19-09 19in LCD Tv has a digitial tuner in it already. I would recommend doing a channel scan and make sure it is on the "Antenna" setting instead of "Cable" and let it scan for channels. You will see all the analog channels like "7", "12" if they are still broadcasting, however, if you can pick up the digital channels, it will look more like "7-1" or 12-1; 12-2 etc.". To get to this, push the "Menu" button on the Dynex remote, then arrow down twice to TV, then push the right arrow and make sure it is set at Antenna and do a channel scan. Should get you whatever digital channels are available. If the digital antenna is not strong enough, you will need to get the digital one at Wal-Mart as previously suggested and hope that will convert the analog channels in your area.

Cannot connect the coverter box


When you have your converter box hooked directly with coax to your tv, is your antenna then plugged into your converter box in the "antenna in" port? What do you mean by it doesn't work? Does it say no signal? If so, you just need a stronger antenna. If not, you may have a defective box, bring it back to the place you got it and see if they can help.

Do I need a dtv digital converter box for my Symphonic SC313D 13 inch tv?


Pretty much a hoax on those diverter boxes. People ran out and bought them thinking that won't have reception. I have many years in maintenance and several years in nursing homes with different tv's in every room. Not once have I needed a box to pick up channels with or without cable. I myself get 16 channels with rabbit ears and thats enough for me. And I do own a combo as well and it has simple antenna and does me just fine. Depending on your location, the old tv antennas we use to put on our houses...they work amazing! Might be able to snag one on a freecycle or craigslist site. Good luck! :)
