Here is a video of it being used with a VCR. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfOHgWIXPJA It would be the same with a converter box. Although you would have to use coaxial cable with the antenna connector from radio shack. I have been looking for a way to convert analog portable's to digital but have come up empty handed.

SOURCE: hand held casio tv vs digital signal

I have my handheld Casio TV-980 up and running with a converter box. All I needed (in addition to the converter box and standard rabbit ears [UHF/VHF] antenna) was an adapter with an F jack on one end and a 1/8" plug on the other (Radio Shack catalog # 278-257, about $5). The 1/8" plug on the adapter goes in the external antenna jack on the TV, and the other end connects to the coaxial cable that goes to the TV (RF out) jack on the converter box. The adapter would have been a little cheaper at my local, independent electronics store, but they were sold out.
 
If your antenna has flat 300 ohm wire connections, you'll need a balun (Radio Shack catalog # 15-1297, about $8) to connect it to the coaxial cable that goes to the Antenna (RF in) jack on the converter box.
 
I’ve tried 2 different converter boxes with the handheld TV, and they both work well: Insignia (Best Buy’s house brand, same as Zenith) and RCA (from Target, same as Venturer), so any government coupon-eligible converter box should work.
 
A few other tips:
 
1. I always turn on the converter box before I turn on the TV. The cpnverter box seems to take control better that way.
 
2. When I turn on the TV, the tuner doesn’t automatically go to channel 3 or 4 (where it should be set when using a converter box), and the picture quality is poor. If I use the tuner on the TV to get to channel 3 or 4, the picture quality is vastly improved. I have to do that every time I turn on the TV.
 
3. Placement of the antenna is very important. I like to watch my handheld TV when I'm on the computer, and the reception is better the further away from the computer the antenna is located. I'm actually using a 6' coaxial cable for the antenna, but I could also have used 2 shorter cables with a coupler that has an F jack at both ends (Radio Shack catalog # 278-304, about $3).
 
If your battery-operated TV does not have an external antenna jack, instructions for connecting it to a converter box can be found at

Digitial reception for casio 980


You won't. Because the unit isn't likely to have an coaxial external cable input, there is no simple way to achieve this. Full-size sets not equipped for digital signals can accept the down-converted signal from a converter box that receives the digital signal and converts it to NTSC standards for older sets. Direct reception of the new signal requires an ATSC tuner and there is no way to provide that for your hand-held. It would be possible to use the output of a converter box clipped onto the antenna of your Casio and see the channels the converter box can receive but your hand-held wouldn't be very portable anymore. Sorry-

I have a Casio EV-570 hand held TV. Will this work after the switch over to digital broadcast.


According to CASIO website in Japanese, their portable TVs are not supporting Digital broadcasting and decided to cease production.
Thus it will not receive Digital broadcasting.
Although, EV-570 composite AV Input should still work for Camera, VCR, etc., I have not tried to connect to the DAC box.
My portable DVD without TV tuner worked with DAC box and now can watch digital TV program!

Hand held casio televisions


Even though it's small, it's still a TV with a standard tuner. So you could use it with a converter box if you really wanted to. You would need to connect the box to the TV's external antenna connector with an appropriate adapter. Then the TV would stay on channel 3 (or 4) while you change channels through the converter box. But just like any other set without the new tuner, once the regular broadcasting ends it won't be able to pick up digital channels.
