Yes, you need an antenna. Any set of rabbit ears will do. Don't pay extra for a "HDTV" antenna, there is no difference in the antenna for a digital or analog signal.

Do i need to have the bose system turned on in order to watch tv or can i have the cable box bypass the bose receiver? I do not wish to use my bose for everyday tv. Thanks


If your TV has its own speakers you don't need to have the Bose turned on for Lo-Fi watching. Not knowing what your TV has for analog and digital inputs or your Cable Box has for analog and digital outputs...

The LS V20 has 3 analog inputs plus a Tape Loop, so you could have the Cable Box (not the TV) audio; and two (or three using the Tape Loop) other analog sources. NOTHING should need to route to the TV first. The Bose should get the audio from whatever you're watching directly from that source.

If the Cable Box has only one analog audio output available but the TV has a digital one

Since an analog audio output can be split you could 'share' the cable box audio with both the TV and the Bose. Digital audio may also be possible between the Box and the TV.

I have hooked up my converter box but its not receiving any signal. do i need to buy a new antana? Or what could be the problem?


make sure u have the antena hooked to box and box hooked to tv, make sure antena wire is actually hooked to an antena if wire is coming out of the wall, otherwise u more than likely need a new antena, or box it's self is bad but if it turns on and u see somtin on the screen like make sure antena is hooked up then the box is probaly good

Digital box for analog tv not working


if you have the coax cable connections correctly connected , coax out to tv from box and antenna hooked to antenna in on the box then you may have to connect the RCA jacks, yellow = video , red = right audio , white = left or mono audio
because on these boxes you can choose in the menu to have the coax ( channel 3 or 4 ) as the output or the rca jacks ( line out )as the output . so the menu may be set for the rca jack connections untill you change it in the menu

Hooking up cable through ht-x50


You need an Optical Audio Cable. Hook one end to the HD Cable Box and the other to your Surround Sound System. If you dont have an Optical Cable to your Cable Box, then try using the usual audio cables. But, I have HD and it worked with the Optical Audio Cable.
