No, your television has a digital tuner built in. You will not need a converter box. When the switch to digital is made, simply use the auto scan feature to program all of the new channel locations. Instructions found in the manual here - http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/2/26pf5321d_37/26pf5321d_37_dfu_aen.pdf

I have a Avermedia Tvbox 9 and i cant get it to show any stations. I did the channel scan, but i still did'nt get any. I just brought it used, but it did'nt come with a manual. What am i doing...


The TVBox 9 only has an NTSC (analog) tuner. Do you have any analog stations in your area and the antenna rotated to get the signal from them. Since the remaining analog stations are low-power ones, you may need to use an amplifier if you aren't very close to the transmitter. Antennaweb.org and TVfool.com provide information on the direction of the antenna. Antennaweb is very conservative in the channel list and assumes an external antenna; so it may not list any analog stations.

If you connect a digital to analog converter box to the TVBox 9, you should be able to receive the digital channels in your area (assuming the correct antenna strength and direction). The converter boxes available with the government coupon some time ago are limited to SD outputs.

The Avermedia TVBox11 has a digital tuner and has HD output. See http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4272281&CatId=1427 for information.

The TVBox tuners are country-specific; one sold in the UK will not work in the USA.

I hope this helps.

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.

My digital tv tuner converter box with analog Zenith converter bo


Most DTV converter boxes have 2 outputs available; RF and component video. The RF goes in between the antenna and the TV and acts as a frontend tuner. The TV needs to be set to Channel 3 or 4 (depending on the box) and left there. All tuning is then by the converter box. By the way, you need to scan for channels as part of the setup. The other method is by using the audio/video component inputs to the TV and the set would then select AUX 1 or 2 etc to get the box input, and tune via the box.

NO channels now, we had some before!!!!!


Here is how you should have it connected.
1- Antenna (rabbit ears or whatever)
2- Converter box
3- Television

When you turn on the TV and the converter box, go to channel 3 on the TV. You should see the converter box signal there. If you do not see it try channel 4. Bring up the convert box menu and go through the AUTO SEARCH, not manual search. Now your box will search all the frequencies and add any stations that are in your area. Make sure you change channels with the converter box, not the tv. An antenna on the roof will still provide somewhat better range, but even rabbit ears will likely pick up something. If you still get no channels you could be too far away, digital signals have a shorter range than analog signals. You can check your local TV stations website or call to see if they are broadcasting digital yet.

TV will not turn on unless unplugged and wait one hour then plug


Well, sounds like they may be changing the source from T.V. to HDMI or component/composit mode which is bassically for a C player or other connected source like a VHS or Xbox etc.

Allthough if this where the case, you should be able to use the remote to change the source back to the T.V. Antenna or cable if you have it.

WHen it goes blank or seems to be off, does anything you do turn it back on without having to unplugg it first?

If not, it could be bad, you will need to try hooking it up some where else for a while and test it without that person there and see if it the T.V. a bad outlet or the person is actually doing something.

If you think the T.V. is bad or faulty, at this early in its life, I would take it back under warranty before trying to fix it yourself.

NEw TV antenna fails to capture all local channels


Dear Shoostar, 6:55 EST (USA)

It may be that those stations are only broadcasting in analog for now and since your using a digital converter the signal can't be read.
Did you try using the old antenna to get those stations?

If this is the problem you could use both antennas with a switch when you want to change channels for now until they all go digital.

I once used two antennas and a 4-pole switch to get Philly & New York from Jersey instantly back in the day.
I didn't like waiting for the antenna rotor to turn into place!

Hope this is helpful.

Is My TV ATSC or NTSC?


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).
