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

Be sure you've got an antenna connected. Find the right one at:

Like AntennaWeb org

If that's not the issue you may not have a digital tuner in that TV and need a converter box to let it see HDTV signals that are broadcast in your area.

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

Converter box


Any Anolog tv should accept a converter box. Just set the tv to channel 3 or 4 to pick up the signal from the converter box.

Trouble receiving local channels on TV using new Magnavox converter box


Your digital converter box probably does not have an analog pass through that allows the old analog channels to go through to the tv's analog tuner.

DTV conversion concerns


I just purchased a Magnovox converter at Wal-Mart with the coupon I ordered from the government program. Our TV is about 2 years old too and not HD. It has worked great. The reception and color is truly the best we've had in years. We live in the country about 50 miles from all the local stations and were told we would need a new antenna, so far the only channel we have problems with is the PBS. Not sure if it is antenna related or their signal strength. We don't have the problem until the sun comes up good. It has been great to get the additional channels that some stations have added. Hope this helps.

Sanyo DS31590 and converter box


I just checked the owners manual online. Looks like this model only has an NTSC analog tuner. No ATSC digital tuner built in.

If you use cable or satellite TV services, the digital converters won't help you. The coupon-eligible ones are strictly for use with a traditional antenna. If this is your situation, ignore the remainder of this message.

If you use a regular TV antenna with this TV, then, yes, you will need a converter box. FYI, the Insignia model at Best Buy and the Zenith at Circuit City, and elsewhere (radio shack) have gotten good reviews from early purchasers. More converter box models will be available in a few months time.

If your current reception with your antenna is poor (snowy), you may have problems receiving the new DTV signals. If not, you should be pleasantly surprised with the quality of the DTV signals - and the extra "virtual" channels. Try the converter box using the RCA video and audio inputs, for a slightly better picture than with the coaxial cable inputs.

Good Luck
