I have been through two different converter boxes in preparation for the Feb switch. Neither of these boxes worked...no reception...yet without the box and a simple set of rabbit ears I was able to get several channels. It was suggested to me that I check into the fact that maybe my TV is too old...??
So, if I'm hoping you might be able to lookup my model number and let me know if my set will not be compatible for the switch.
I don't know the product code....I guessed below, but it is a 27"

When a TV hasn't digital tuner, it's necessary to add it a digital to analog channels converter box, but your TV already has digital tuner, you can switch between digital and analog tuning by pressing the digital/analog botton on the remote control.
The set is trying to auto program the available channels and it can't find any because since the change from analog to digital [FEB 2009] broadcasting requires a "converter box" to translate the digital signal back to analog. Check around and see if you can find a converter box. They were available for $20 with a coupon, maybe they still are. Try an electronics shop or dealer for that info.
no you can use your regular VCR. You will just have to make sure you put your coverter box to bring the signal into your vcr. You can also bring the signal into your TV from the vcr so that you don't have to have 2 converter boxes.
Hello Ann, I will try to help you, well if your for sure about the Manufactur date on the T.V., then yes you will need a digital converter box, also it is suggested to have an outdoor UHF/VHF antenna with coax to attach to your converter box, the old rabbit ears aren't suggested. I hope this helps in getting you prepared for Feb. 19, 2009 when all T.V. stations broadcasting will convert to the new signal. Thank You and Have great day.
I didn't see anything on the internet about the features.
Does your tv tuner have the capability of tuning into channels with a decimal point in them, then it should work. If your tv doesn't have that feature, chances are you will need a converter box, cable tv, or satellite.
Yes, you will need the converter box in order to view the digital channels if you are receiving off the air signals but if you have cable or satellite TV, you might not needed. You can click here to know the specs of your TV, it has an analog tuner and not a digital.
No, unless you are receiving over cable or satellite. You will need a DTV converter box if you are using an antenna to receive Over The Air television signals. The Proscan has an analog only tuner, so the ATSC (digital) signals will not be visible. tom
