Re: do I need a converter box for a panasonic mnf. 2003
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.

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.
may be the problem is the how you connect the converter to the tv... it shoud be connected at the video in and audio in of the tv... and the cable wire should be plug in the Rf in of the converter.. you can scan all the channel thru the remote..
