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

Why won't my new Vizio DTV work on an antenna without the digital box?


Do you have the antenna aimed correctly and the correct antenna for the distance between your location and the stations? Check antennaweb.org and tvfool.com for the directions to the stations you should be able to receive. Antennaweb assumes an external antenna and is very conservative in the station list. TVfool gives the stations you should get with various different types of antennas. Tall trees and buildings will block signal strength so consider the environment around you.

With digital signals, if you do not have enough signal strength for a given tuner, the channel will not come in. An amplifier may help you get the signal, particularly if the signal is shared to several devices. Failure of an amplifier or lightning surge protection can stop the signal from reaching the TV. A surge through the antenna can damage the tuner.

A damaged cable can also be a source of a problem. Check the outside portion of the wire as well as the interior wires. Replace any that have damaged insulation or ends.

For this TV, if you have done a channel scan with the TV set to the Input TV/DTV, and the Signal Source set to Antenna. Turn the antenna and then set the Additional Scan to On. (Menu > TV > Channels > Additional Scan.) Then do another channel scan.

Do I need a digital convertor box to get the DTV signals or just the antenna?


You will need a digital-to-analog converter box and an antenna. The TV only has an NTSC (analog) tuner.

I hope this helps.

Since Texas went digital I am only getting some of the digital chanels. I have changed it to digital programming but they are not all coming through. What do I need to do?


we need more information:

1) Your city in Texas; so I can look up the stations and find what frequency's they are broadcasting their DTV on.

2) What kind of antenna do you have ?
VHF ? UHF ? Inside ? On the Roof ?

A couple things you can try:

- instead of having the TV AutoScan for channels, manually enter the channel for the TV stations not being received.

- call the TV station you're having trouble receiving: they will ask you where live, what kind of antenna you have etc..


but you really should have a 'roof mounted' antenna that is matched to youre reception needs.

Im not getting any signal weak or strong! What am I doing wrong?


What's your source for signal? You need an antenna to be the capture source for your signal that has a wire going from the antenna to the INPUT of the box. That's usually coaxial input. The box is the middle component between your TV and antenna.
