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.
I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM BUT LAST NIGHT I PLACED THE TV NEAR THE FREEVIEW BOX AND THE TV JUST PICKED UP THE SIGNAL.A DIGITAL CHANNEL AT THAT ASWELL.NEAR PERFECT IMAGE.I DONT KNOW HOW THIS COULD BE ADAPTED TO USE THE PORTABLE AWAY FROM OFF THE FREEVIEW BOX.ANY SUGGESTIONS?
The only way is to use a standard "Set top box" or just use it as a video monitor for a VCR or DVD player - It has an A-V input that you can use, but it uses a 3.5mm jack socket (I think) - You'll need to determine the connections, but I'm sure it'll work fine. I'm just researching the conections myself. I'll re-post if I fine 'em.
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.
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!
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.
Stewart!!! didn't I tell you not to carry that thing around in your bag?! I told you you'll end up breaking it! and now you had to be smart and shake a can of Dr. Pepper around with it!!!
Ahem, sorry, don't know what came over me, turned into your mum there for a second ;]
Too bad no one answered you any sooner. The longer you leave it, the more damage it gets. Sweet drinks are not good for electronics. You should take it apart and clean the internal parts one by one with distilled water, clean the sticky drink out, and let it dry.
If you don't trust yourself with it take it to a lab to work on.
Just bear in mind that most chances it's damaged, and won't come back to life with out replacing some parts, so you might as well take it to a lab in the first place. Also, if you tried turning it on after it got wet you didnt do it any good, you just tried to run current through a device soaked in sweet water and screwed it some more.
Sorry kid, better luck next time ;]
