Digital to analog converter box hookup

My old analog tv uses a rabbit ears antenna which attaches with screws. The converter box I bought has one coax cable with slip over connectors on each end. The back of the converter box has 2 coax connectors. What type of interface connector do I use to attach the coax cable to the screws on the tv? What type of connector do I use to hook the antenna screw terminals to the other coax connector on the back of the box?

You will have to go to Radio Shack or Wall Mart, maybe Home Depot and get a matching transformer. That will have spade terminals on one end to connect to your tv and a round (75ohm male thread) to hook to your converter box.

Can't view my digital channels


Get an outdoor antenna. Digital signals very rarely reach indoor antennas unless you are within ten miles of the signal origin.

Not sure if converter box is needed???


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.

Rabbit ears to digital conversion box


Your TV is old enough to have not only screw terminals for the antenna, but it sounds like it has separate UHF and VHF terminals as well. Pick up a 75-ohm to 300-ohm adapter (available at Radio Shack and probably most other places that sell TV's and antennas). This is a small cylinder-shaped part with a threaded antenna connector on one end, and a flat wire with two terminals on the other end. Connect the cable from the converter box to the round connector, hook the two terminals to the VHF antenna screws on your TV, put the TV on channel 3 and you'll be set.

You should also pick up a new antenna designed to work with digital broadcasting. If you use the old rabbit ears you were using before, you will probably not pick up all the channels available in your area.

Is this an analog or digital television?


I e-mailed Sanyo, and their response is that this TV has an analog tuner so you will need a converter.

Need converter box


Not if you have cable TV, satellite TV, or FIOS. If so, a converter won't do anything for you. Not needed.

If, however, you only use a regular TV antenna or rabbit ears, you will need a converter box as this model TV only has an NTSC analog tuner built in.
