It sounds to me as though your old HDTV has a HD tuner built in. Not all HDTVs do and unfortunately your LG does not (I looked it up).

If you want to get free over the air HD you will need to buy a HD digital tuner box and an HD antenna.

Good luck!

Cant get channel 11 when i hook my converter box to this tv is there a way i can i get regular tv without it


No,if this tv is an analog tv mean tv have a big back cover and have a heavy CRT-(tv tube).Must have a good antena like a digital antena or move antena around to left or right to pick up channel 11,might lost some other channels than.This tv now can't pick up digital signal now without the tv converter box if u want to pick up free DTV air broadcasting tv signal,it all broadcasting in DTV free air in all digital now.

How do i get regular tv channels no cable or direct tv. I have a 32' magnavox model #32MF338B/F7


Hello
I'm not sure about the model number of your TV, as here it is marked as both "27MS343S and 32MF338B/F7". Anyway I gies this solution as for the first denoted.
Insert antena to the antena socket at the back side of your TV marked as 75Ohms antena input.
[1] Press "Menu" button on the remote control handset to display menu on screen.
[2] Press "Vol+ or Vol--" button repetedly to hilight "TUN" [Tuner].
[3] Press "Ch+ or Ch--" button to hilight 'AUTOPROGRAM"
[4] Press "Vol+" to programming tv channels.
Tv will tune and store channels transmitted channels at that time, through entire bands, and will display the first channel receved after tuning process completed. It may take some minutes. You have to wait it to complete. After displaying the first channel, you can select your favourite channel Using CH+ or CH--" buttons. Ok.

I bought a toshiba 36HF12 36" tv


The TV does need a converter box to receive digital off-the-air broadcasts. It's an HD set, but that doesn't mean digital; no digital tuner was built in. You can find the manual here at Toshiba. Hope this helps, and thanks for using Fixya!

Is the rca true flat tv able to be used by putting up an antena -or will we need a convertor box ? currently we have direct tv and are thinking about canceling it and use an antena.


This model does not have a built in HD tuner (ATSC Tuner). You would need an HD antenna (that is a more recent antenna that receives UHF) and an HD converter box to get the newly broadcast HD signals.
