Digital converterboxes will down-convert all signals to 480p at best.  No converter box should be used with the satellite signal only antennas.

Hello, I have a General Electric 27GT 277 CRT Television, however, when I went to do a channel search it didn't return any channels. Although I was watching 6 free channels before, I don't have...


Hello,
Allow me to try and assist you based on your situation.
Most FREE channels went digital, more and more will disappear from the RF spectrum as digital moves into play. This tv is by far not digital thus it uses RF "radio frequency" that is transmitted from a tower to your rabbit ears then converted into the tv to make a picture and sound.
Here is a suggestion that you may consider, will not break the budget. Radio Shack carries a digital set top box that hooks to a antenna thus down converts the digital to analog for you so you can enjoy far more then 6 channels without having to pay the cable man or satellite tv company for your local stations.
Here is a link to the box I am talking about http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3150939
This box will help you get those channels back, will get you watching more TV.
Now for the remote issue, This box comes with a programable remote that will work for your tv so it kills 2 birds with one stone. You could also order one from remotes.com or 1800-remotes if you like.
We do hope this information does help you with your problems.
Thanks for using Fixya.com

Can the LG 990W VHS VCR receive digital TV signal


VCR is analogue, However you can still use it to record digital programmes when connected via a digital set top box. You can only record the channel you have selected on the screen. In other words, you cannot record a channel programme while watching another channel. I use mine on a second TV and when recorded I take the tape out and put it into my main TV for viewing at a later date. I don't watch too much TV so it works fine for me for the odd programme.

Do I need digital converter box if i go without cable or satellite


The digital convertor Box is needed when you have taken a cable connection with a digital option. This allows you to choose as many channels as you need and the number of channels will be more than on an analogue cable line.
So you must decide if you need a cluster of channels to select and choose, the digital wil help but the cable will be cheaper.
The dish to select a satellite requires a LNB with the decoder of the service provider.You must check the options available.
Hope you decide.

• t can't view the Basic channels. Check the connection of the antenna cable
• t want to view cable channels. Register with your local cable company then connect their receiver to your TV.
• t want to view satellite channels. Setup your Satellite parabola antenna then connect your satellite receiver to the TV.
• Digital broadcasting is not functioning Check your antenna cable connection. Check if the digital channel selection is correctly

What do ineed to watch this tv now that we have digital services


Yes you do. Not only do you need a convertor box but an antenna to connect to the convertor box. The convertor box will have to be plugged in and depending on the antenna it might have to be plugged in. This tv does allow and external antenna to be connected to it. This is where you will attach the convertor box with whatever adaptor you may need. The tv will need to remain on channel 3 at all times.

Would like to record from my tv to my magnavox dvd/vcr combo box


If I understand your request right, You do not have cable or satellite box.
You can not record from your TV. You use the TV as a monitor from the dvd/vcr combo box. What the box receives is what shows on the TV. So you will have to have a digital convertor hooked to the (antenna in) dvd/vcr combo box, (antenna out to the tv antenna in) Depending on the antenna you are using that is on the other end of your cable-in coax connection this will hook to your antenna in on the digital convertor box. If your cable is hooked up and operating correctly and directly to the tv that is digital ready you probabbly have a good picture. When the vhf/uhf signal was transmitted you could go from the dvd/vcr to the tv with no problem. But now that the signal is digital and the tv is set for digital the dvd/vcr will not pass a digital signal to the tv. Best suggestion, you have to get a digital dvd/vcr receiver. If you have more question please contact me.

Have Direct TV using a Sony Digital Satellite receiver model #SAT B2-2 /Sony Satellite dish purchased in 7/97. I get local channels thru Direct TV. Recently, local channels will show on the Direct TV guide...


Your dish is out of alignment. The local channel satellite doesn't have as strong of a signal, so a slight misalignment will cause problems.

It could also be an F-connector needs to be replaced at the dish or multiswitch (if you have one). Sometimes moisture builds up inside the connector and corrodes the copper stinger inside.

If you go into your satellite signal strength menu and find the local channel satellite, you're sure to see either a weak signal or an intermittent one.

One more thing, if a tree has grown in the line of sight between the dish and the satellite, this will cause signal problems too. In this case, you either have to trim the tree or move the dish.

Hope this helps!

P.S.
The customer service reps at DirecTV usually idiots reading from a script with no real field experience.

Local channel went digital, lost signal.


You need a digital to analog convertor box to recieve the digital signal.

All UHF+VHF signals will be digital starting in June.
