Converter box issue

My 90 year old aunt just bought a Sanyo DP269648. The manual says it is a HDTV but the local news did a system check for our area and it said that she needs a converter box. She doesn't have cable just an anntena. Does this make the difference or should she be able to get her tv channels? If it does not need the box what would be causing the problem?

Beginning February 17th everyone getting their channels over-the-air (antenna) will need a converter box to continue receiving their channels; doesn't matter what kind of TV they own. You can go to https://www.dtv2009.gov for more information and to request coupons to receive the converter box

What is the best converter box to use with toshiba regza 42hl67 flat screen tv?


As far as I can make out, this Toshiba model is made for the US market so doesn't actually have a freeview tuner. It will only receive satellite and cable HD signals and local US TV, all of which has to be bought. You need to get something like an August DVB400 - HD Freeview Set Top Box -Digital PVR Tuner with USB TV Recording, eBay would be best I think, where they are sold for under £30.00. The tuner packed up on my 32" Regza so I bought one of these and it works fine. Plus you can record to a USB stick if you don't want to miss a programme. Hope this helps ......BS

Trying to get local channels on my Emerson Cd VCR


You will most likely need an HDTV to SD converter box as the VCR probably has an old analog tuner and you will need a converter box to be able to see/record from the HDTV channels. Let me know if that's your issue. Thanks.

I am moving tomorrow and won't be able to afford cable or satellite for awhile. I have a newer model Sanyo tv. Will I need a converter box or can I hook an antenna directly into the tv to pick u


If your TV has the screw-on coaxial cable connection on the back, then you will not need a converter box. You can attach an internal or external antenna and have your TV scan for digital channels. The converter boxes are mostly for old CRT TVs with analog tuners or newer home theater "monitor" TVs which are being produced without built in tuners.

Is this an analog or digital tv? I'm trying to find out if I need to get a digital contvetor box or not to access local channels.


You will need to find a converter box to access local programing. Good news...When you do connect your TV to this converter box, your TV will be extremely clear. Its like a brand new TV. Give me a few hands and thanks for asking!

I did some lookin and from what i have seen, you are going to need a converter box for February. now two bits of good news. if you go to the fcc web site you can get cupons that make the converterbox about 25- 35 bucks. almost 75% off. now the next bit of good news. i found a manual for your tv.. just copy and paste the link at the bottom of this fix and it takes you to the page. there are tools on the side of the window to zoom move around and quick links as well. hope this helps

Insignia digital tv converter/indoor antenna no signal


Ok first I can save you some money. Take your "HDTV" antenna back. There is nothing different about the antennas needed receive analog and digital signals. If you got reception without your converter box, use the same antenna with your converter box.

Next let's see if there is a problem with the box. Hook up a television with the antenna. How many stations do you get? Now hook up the same television & antenna, but this time put the converter box between the antenna & the TV. Do not turn on the box. Now how many stations do you get? If the number is different, the box is not allowing the antenna signal to pass through. That is bad. You want your signal to pass through the box so you can still pick up stations that don't broadcast digitally. Some areas of the country will not be covered by digital stations from all major broadcasters when the changeover happens in Feb.

My suspicion is either you did not have the antenna hooked up to the converter box when you searched for channels OR you are in an area that is not yet broadcasting digitally.

I hope this helps you solve your problem. Thank you for using FixYa and feel free to add more questions here by using comments.
