I have the same problem. Changing the antenna connection may help as will changing antennas/antenna position. Try to do a channel search in good weather.

SOURCE: Black box appears in TV screen

The problem with the black box happened to me. I had pushed the subtitle button on my remote by mistake. Interestingly enough, as soon as I pushed the SUBTITLE key again, on the remote, the black boxes disappeared.

It also says CC which means closed captioned-- So the bottom on my remote is Subtitle, and then on the subtitle button is cc...

I hope this helps

SOURCE: 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

I use an RCA box. Never had any problem.
