Your set does not come equipped with a digital tuner..if you do not have cable, and you use a set top or roof top antena, you will HAVE to get a converter box. You are losing channels because some broadcasters have decided to switch to digital, or "test" their digital BEFORE the febuaray switchover date.

How can I get more channels, my tv was just hooked up to cable tv only gets 12 channels??


Twelve channels may be all the cable carries. You probably could receive more channels over the air, possibly using a digital converter box.

Cannot find channel 3 or 4 on old Panasonic TV CT 20S2S


Channel 3 or 4 is what you select on your actual television. using the TV remote press 03 or 04 ( whatever the converter box output is switched to on the back.

if you cannot get the tv to select 3 or 4 ( not programmed try searching for channels on the convertor box and after it finishes auto program the TV set.

For a more detailed specific answer please list the make and model of both the TV and the digital converter box

Hissing sound from a Panasonic old TV...Sound and picture are OK. The hissing sound even continues when the MUTE on the Box is ON. The hissing only stops when the MUTE on the TV is ON. I am using the...


If you disconnect or power off the converter box does the hiss go away?
If you connect a VCR or DVD player does it still have the hiss? We
need to isolate what source is causing the hiss if it is from the set or
if it is from the converter box.
When you turn the volume control down on the set, does the hiss
reduce in level? If mute stops it, it should reduce in level as you
turn the volume down. Then turn up the sound level control on
the converter box whether its a manual control or by remote. If you
can get a combination that minimizes the hiss and gets higher sound
level from the programming that may cure it.
I am not familiar with the converter box you are using. Are you using
Audio/Video cables from it to the set or is it coming out with coaxial cable
and used on a channel? If you are using a very old set with a tuner input
perhaps the fine tuning is out of adjustment.

If you are receiving OTA channels, you will need to have the converter box but if you have a cable TV converter or satellite receiver then you do not need the converter as the channels will come to the cable bix or satellite receiver and from there to your TV.

Can't tell if we need converter box for a Panasonic TV CT 27SC14J


this tv does not have a digital tuner. so, if you used an antenna to get off air channels, you would need a converter box. however, if you have cable or a satellite dish you will not need anything.

if it was purchased back in 2003 chances are that it is not digital TV ready and you would need to purchase a converter box.
