A converter box made by any brand will work with any analog tv as long as it has either RCA plugs or a antenna in plug.

Mintek DTV-260


The Mintek DTV-260 only has a NTSC (analog) tuner. You will need to connect your RCA antenna to a digital to analog converter box to watch TV over the air. Then connect the output of the converter box to your TV.

The common converter boxes are limited to SD output. You might be able to find an HD converter box online. (With the standard converter box, the available outputs are coaxial and composite video.) The DTV-260 has a composite video port; alternatively set the TV to channel 3 or 4 and use the coaxial (RF) input on the TV.

There may be a low-power station that still broadcasts in analog. However these are rare. You will need to switch from CATV to OTA (Air) to check for one of these stations. Analog Cable has different parameters than scanning for over the air signals.

I hope this helps.

Line floats from bottom of screen to top. Is it the direct cable hook up that causes that to happen.


Hello bbarnell821,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

Your issue is from the tuner within the TV. The new cable standard is Digital, and your TV has an Analog tuner. Visit your local Best Buy or the link I have provided below, to purchase a converter that will convert the digital backwards to analog for your TV Set.

I cant get any channels with my coby tv


This COBY only has an analog tuner. Thus unless you are close to one of the remaining low-power stations, you need a digital-to-analog converter for OTA TV signals. For digital TV, you should use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to identify the antenna and direction for the digital signals that you may be able to receive. Antennaweb assumes an outdoor antenna is conservative in the channel list it provides. Digital signal is either enough to register with the tuner or No Signal. An amplifier may be needed is the signal is split to several TVs.

If you have cable, check the type of signal coming in to the TV. If the signal has been switched to digital, you need a set top box.

I hope this helps.

Is this an Analog TV? Does it have a picture tube and not an LCD or plasma screen? Most likely this is a Analog TV.

If it is an Analog TV (and I would bet that it is), then no, it does not have a digital (QAM) tuner to pick up DTV broadcasts. The fact that it has a VCR also indicates that its an Analog TV.

If you are picking up your TV signals from an outside antenna and not cable, then yes, you will need a converter box to convert the new digital signals to Analog so that you can continue to use your TV set.

If you are using cable to receive your channels, the cable company already provides the conversion for you and your TV will continue to work as before.

The government is giving out coupons to help consumers defray the costs of purchaing a converter box. The following sites are good places to obtain more information.
