Yes, you will need a converter box if you are currently getting TV off-the-air with a rooftop or indoor antenna. This TV does not have a digital tuner. You don't need a box if this set is being used on a cable or satellite system (unless your service provider tells you otherwise).

Yes hello, i'm trying to hook up my Coby 12'1 digital tv to a converter box is that possible or do i need a cable box for it to connect?


You should be able to connect the tv to a converter box. This is good for OTA signals to a TV with an NTSC tuner (coax) or composite video input. http://www.cobyusa.com/?p=prod&prod_num_id=205&pcat_id=2007#features-tab has the manual for the DTV102. Put the antenna coax cable to the converter box ANT In and then either the antenna out to the TV or the A/V (composite) out to the TV's composite in. If you use the RF connection, you will need to set the TV to channel 3 or 4 and set the switch on the converter box appropriately. For a composite video connection, you will need to change the input to AV1 (if there are several inputs). Depending on the TV, there may be a source or input button on the TV. For other models this is only on the remote. If you have the original remote, no problem. If you have a universal remote, make sure that you have a key that corresponds to the feature and that you found the code that lets the key work for your TV. (Not all universal remotes have the feature.)

However, you should get the best antenna that you can and have it pointed correctly to receive the stations. Digital signal doesn't have borderline reception. Try antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to check the stations and directions in your area. Antennaweb assumes an outdoor antenna but is very conservative in the channel list that it will indicate you can receive. Tvfool lists the channel reception depending on the antenna type. Tall trees and buildings can block the signal.

I hope this helps.

I need a information Manual for my LENOXX DBT please. The Phillips No's are 2480635 29970323.


Hi there,

I'd love to help you - and I probably can - but you are going to need to provide a little more info.

Firstly, I'm not exactly sure what a DBT is - my educated guess would be that you need a manual for a set-top box / digital tuner. These usually have DVB-T marked on them (Digital Video Broadcasting - Terrestrial).

I can supply manuals FREE for some models of Lenoxx digital tuners but not all of them. Lenoxx charge AU$15 for these so hopefully I can supply the one you want - assuming this is what you are actually requesting.

If you can let me know the model number of the device you require a manual for, I may be able to supply one. For Lenoxx digital tuners, the model numbers generally start with STB (meaning set-top box) and then 3 or 4 numbers, e.g STB-300, STB-500, STB-800, STB-1200.

If you need a manual for some other Lenoxx product, then please supply a model number for it. These can usually be found somewhere on the product, often in small letters on the front panel or on a manufacturer's sticker on the back.

I am also a little confused to the relevance of the Philips numbers you listed. I'm assuming they relate to your TV, but they are definitely not model numbers and therefore could relate to anything. They are most probably serial numbers of some kind, in which case those numbers are only relevant to your TV and as such it is not possible to determine which product they relate to.

If you need information for your TV, again you are going to need to provide a model number. You should be able to find this somewhere on the back of the TV.

Please clarify exactly what you need and I'm sure I - or someone else here - will be able to assist you.

Regards,
BElectric

Digital Transition


It's analog.  You need to purchase a digital receiver.  I personally have a USB external digital tuner running in Media Center 2005.  Search Ebay for "ATSC usb".  There's a lot of different options and most of them are pretty inexpensive.  To use a digital tuner in Media Center 2005, you have to leave the analog tuner / tuners in also.  You should still be able to use your current remote control with the new digital tuner.

Hauppauge WinTV HVR-1600 - ATSC HDTV receiver


I have a Hauppauge WinTV HVR-1600. I have a comcast digital box hooked up to my PC. Signal is bad and black and white media. I installed the "current" driver two weeks ago (mid October) Work great! We had to perform a PC recovery. I downloaded the "current" driver. Got weak signal and black and white only.

No colour..


Sounds like you're feeding the ADVC the wrong broadcast format. Either PAL when the ADVC is in NTSC mode, or NTSC when the ADVC is in PAL mode.

Alternatively, your capture software may have a broadcast format setting as well, and that may not be matching what the ADVC is sending out. Remember that the ADVC does not do NTSC<->PAL format conversion, so NTSC analog input becomes NTSC DV, and PAL analog input becomes PAL DV.

No color from VHS on DVD/VHS player


There may be an input selection between Composite and S-Video that needs to be toggled in your Hauppauge software.

Your Hauppauge card may also be in the wrong signal format mode (NTSC or PAL). Your source device and your Hauppauge card need to be in the same mode (both NTSC or both PAL) for the capture to work properly.

If your NV-VP33 is a SCART output, then you may need to check your SCART adapter and your device as not all devices output both S-Video (Y/C - two signals) and Composite (CVBS - one signal) type signals.

If your SCART adapter has both Composite and S-Video outputs, try the other one.

And finally... if you're playing an NTSC tape/DVD in a PAL player, it doesn't mean the output is true NTSC 3.58. Most times it's NTSC 4.43 which is OK for TVs, but NOT okay for video capture devices. Video capture devices need true NTSC 3.58 to sync the color carrier properly.

Is my tv digital compatible or not


https://www.dtv2009.gov/FAQ.aspx What you need to know is whether your TV set has something called a “digital tuner” already built in. If it does, your TV set will work after February 17, 2009. The best way to determine whether your TV set has a digital tuner built in is to consult your owner’s manual. If that’s not possible, you may be able to look up information about your TV set on the manufacturer’s website. Or, you can take an up-close look at your TV set. In any case, you’re trying to find out if your set has an input connection labeled “digital input” or “ATSC” (for Advanced Television Systems Committee, which is the DTV format).

Here are some general guidelines that may help:

TV set made before 1998 was a traditional “analog” set. If you bought a big-screen, projection TV between 1998 and 2004, it may have a built-in digital tuner inside. But chances aren’t great. Only a limited percentage of projection TV sets (and generally only those 42 inches in diameter or larger) included digital tuners before 2004.

If you purchased a new TV set since 2004, your chances of having a built-in digital tuner improve dramatically. Starting in 2004, many of the TV sets sold at popular electronics stores feature digital tuners that will work after February 17, 2009. But it’s not a sure thing. Even some of the newer TV sets are purely display monitors that lack the internal circuitry needed to pick up digital broadcasts. Usually these sets have been advertised as “HD-ready” or “HDTV monitor” sets. That means they can display digital and high-definition signals, but they need help getting those signals in the first place. You’ll still need a special converter or a cable TV connection. Hope this info above helps. Also, check your manual, and if you don't have it some manufacturers, (Philips does for some models) offer the manual on their websites.
