Question about Durabrand BH1304D 13" TV

3 Answers

I'm looking for rabbit ears/antenna for my Durabrand T.V.

Do I need a certain type? Do you have any suggestions on what kind to purchase and where I can purchase it? Note: My T.V. came with a single antenna but isn't compatible with the digital converter box I purchased and I want to get the T.V. switched before the conversion in February.

Radio Shack, Wal-Mart, etc. all carry a selection of antennas that will work with your converter box. Depending on the strength of DTV signals in your area, you may need an amplified antenna (has a built-in booster) to get good reception. Analog broadcasts were watchable with a weak signal (the picture would just be fuzzy), but the digital system needs a good strong signal. The sales people may be able to suggest an antenna based on what other customers have purchased and their reports of how well they do. Outdoor antennas are also available if needed.

I have cello TV and now no channels . have tried factory reset and still shows message as Database empty. What can you suggest?


To Get free broadcasts you will need to 1) have an antenna and 2) run the Channel Scan or Auto-TUne program. Any antenna will work - Rabbit ears etc. Once connected you need to go to setup and run the channel scan - it will find the digital channels in your area and load them into the database. You can get an antenna at Radio Shack, Meijer, Kmart etc. any place they sell TV's. Like I said even the old Rabbit Ear antennas work fine for Digital TV.

2 tv's. recently had uverse removed. neighbor has rabbit ears-gets local channels. I get nothing. Does something with uverse change my tv's?


Your tv my have a setting for type of input. Cable of Air channels. You would need to switch that to AIr. Also, the air channels have gone to a digital signal and I believe they take "digital rabbit ears" I think the old style may not pull in the digital signal, but I'm not entirely certain about that one. Something like this http://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Ultra-Thin-Performance-Indoor-Antenna/dp/B00DIFIO8E/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1409885138&sr=8-1&keywords=digital+antenna+for+hdtv+indoor

Digital Converter connection with old Rabbit Ears TV


First, make sure your connections are right. The rabbit ears need to be disconnected from the TV and reconnected to the converter box. Then the output cable from the converter box connects to the TV. Then try turning the rabbit ears or re-locating them near a window if the wire is long enough. You should be able to get some signal. A newer indoor antenna may help you pull in some of the weaker stations.

Hi, when in June there will be thr passage to digital I'll can countinue to use this tv or I need a converter? Thanks Maria


According to Panasonic this set is not capable of receiving digital signals, therefore will require a converter box.

You can get a coupon from the government for $40.00 towards the purchase of this box at the following address.
https://www.dtv2009.gov/

You will need an antenna that is capable of receiving UHF signals. Not rabbit ears, but the loop type of antenna that sometimes comes with rabbit ears.

I always encourage everyone to get the coupons from the government, because they are free and you can request two per household. (That’s $80.00)

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Is my tv digital ready?


If you receive TV from either cable or satelite, you are fine. If you use rabbit ears or a rooftop antenna, you will need a converter box after Feb 17th.

Durabrand DU1901 digital ready?


The digital Cable conversion only effects those who still get their TV channels through an antenna or rabbit ears. If you get it through a cable provided like Comcast, you SHOULD be fine. For more information, look at the FCC website.

Happy viewing :)

Need a smart antenna to go with the Digital TV converter box


First, you don't need a Smart Antenna, the manual is simply stating that your converter will use one if you have it. Any standard antenna will work, so there is no need for a coupon to pay for a new one, whether indoor or outdoor depending on your location and distance from each channel transmission tower. Since you don't give details of what antenna you are using, I will assume you have rabbit ears for each converter. Rabbit ears are notorious for poor reception and any metal or persons nearby will change the reception quality. I would recommend a roof mounted external antenna with splitters for the 3 converters if you have the option. If not, use an amplified internal antenna and mount it closest to the channel towers you will watch most and as high as possible. If you can find a smart antenna, which is an amplified indoor/outdoor antenna with a control cable for changing the direction of reception, for a decent price, you can use that but keep in mind that to use the control feature you will need one for each converter. Also, check antennaweb.org for information on digital channels in your area and their direction and distance. Antennaweb.org will also tell you if any digital channel in your area uses VHF frequencies. If they don't then a UHF only antenna will work fine.
