Get a component video cable (blue, green, red) and a separate RCA audio cable (white and red) if your cable box has a component video output and the TV has a component video input.

If your cable box doesn't have the component output, you will need a converter to go from the HDMI to component video. Something like this: http://www.hdtvsupply.com/hdmi-to-component.html . There are other converters available if your TV has some other inputs available.

A cable that has an HDMI M on one end and a VGA M on the other will not work. HDMI signals from the set top box are a digital signal. The VGA port on the TV is set to read an RGB analog signal. (Similarly a component to VGA cable would not work since the RGB and PbPrY are not compatible.)

I hope this helps.

Is the PT50LC13 a digital TV? I didn't buy a converter box thinking that the TV didn't need one, but over time and unable to see any channel even with one, I wonder if the TV is indeed digital or not. I...


This tv only has an analog tuner (NTSC). That is why it works with cable and dvds. You will need a converter box to view OTA signals. (In addition, digital signals have a firm cut-off of signal strength; if the tuner doesn't get enough signal the channel will not be available.) So check with antennaweb.org or tvfool.com for details on the antenna direction for your area channels. antennaweb is very conservative in the channel listing it provides (even with the assumption of an external antenna). tvfool gives the color specifications of the antenna that should receive a given set of channels in your area.

The converter boxes are still available from select vendors but the government coupons program is not. Here's one that is listed as in stock: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3150939&CAWELAID=198809366 . This is one of the standard definition output boxes. High Definition digital to analog converters also exist but are more expensive.

A cheap alternative may be to use a PC TV tuner (either USB or internal card) attached to the antenna and then output to the TV. This TV has a VGA port. (If you want to use component video in on the TV, you will need to check if your video card will support the non-RGB signal or a converter box for that.)

I wish that I could be of more help.

Model 55311 Can you pick up digital tv without converter box?


I am thinking that you have a Mitsubishi WS-55311. If this is the case, you will need a converter box to receive digital television signals.

I hope that this helps you resolve your issue.

Cant retune my digtal freeview as my picture keeps freezing


The retuning process is as follows:

  1. Press the [i+] or MENU button on the remote control to display the DIGITAL INFO menu.
  2. Press the BLUE button to display the MAIN MENU.
  3. Press the UP or DOWN buttons to highlight AUTO TUNING then press the OK button to display the AUTO TUNING MENU.
  4. Press the RED button to start the auto tuning process for all available digital channels.
  5. Wait for the process to complete.

If you wish to CANCEL the auto tuning process whilst it is processing then press the BLUE button at any time.

You may lose some channels when you retune the TV as the channels have been rearranged. To locate them look at the EPG although you may still find that some channels are no longer available on FREEVIEW. See the following link for additional information

http://www.freeview.co.uk/_retuneinfo/

If the above process does not work then check the link above for additional information and also visit the accompanying site links below to find more information for your model of TV / FREEVIEW box.

DTV Conversion Question


Yes you can connect a DTV converter box in your van.
If the TV is DC powered you will need to buy a DC to AC inverter, like these http://www.dcacpowerinverters.com/12_volt_power_inverters.html because there are currently no dc dtv converters available.
If the tv is ac powered you will only need to connect the converter to the inverter the tv is connected to.
If you need more help or installation instructions let me know.

HDTV Turner


If your set has HD on it means set is HD Ready and you do not need Converter Box even if your only signal is coming from an antenna. Either a TV has HD or it Does not! And NO you cannot buy Parts to make your set HD.
