The converter must have an "analog pass-through" feature to view existing stations until the changeover. Not all of the 'approved' boxes had the feature and you didn't include the model number so we could check for you.
If you were dependent on an outdoor antenna, you will still need it for the (any) converter box.

I cannot get a signal with converter box and Philips indoor antenna


Try to manually enter the local DTV Station Channels, instead of letting the converter scan for channels. And try moving the antenna and then re-entering the DTV channel.


You should really have an external antenna that is matched to your local reception needs.


contact your local TV stations, their engineers will be more than happy to help.

Will an RCA Digital Convertor work on Durabrands model #1304.?.


Hello chlpepr2,

Yes it should work, connect the RCA video out (yellow connector DTV Converter) to the RCA video in (yellow connector TV set). Then connect the RCA Audio out (Red-Right White-Left DTV converter) to the RCA audio in (Red-Right White-Left TV set).

Then setup your converter box according to the manufacture's instructions.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

DTV Converter hookup


Is it possible to record TV programming on a VCR when using a DTV converter? h1 = document.getElementById("title").getElementsByTagName("h1")[0];h1.innerHTML = widont(h1.innerHTML); Hi,

I had the same problem and found this answer that worked for me. Hope this does the trick for you.

Simple stated, your VCR must be set to channel 3 also. Check it out.

  1. You must have the VCR tuned to record on channel 3.
  2. You must have the VCR connected to output signal of the DTV converter box. In other words, the converter box must be connected between the antenna and the VCR. So, the likely configuration you would use with a coaxial cable is antenna to DTV converter to VCR to TV.
  3. You must tune the DTV converter to the channel you want to record prior to recording. The VCR won't be able to change channels on the DTV converter.
  4. You will be able to use the timed record function on the VCR but you must adhere to steps 1-3.
If this sounds freakishly familiar to recording on a digital cable or satellite set-top box, you are right. It is exactly like recording a signal from a digital cable box or satellite receiver. While it may be inconvenient to perform the steps above, at least the option still exists to record on a VCR while using a DTV converter box.
Disadvantage of DTV Converter: You will lose the ability to watch one program and record another with the DTV converter. Sorry for the bad news.
The reason is the tuner. The VCR tuner is useless with digital except for recognizing channel 3. The digital converter is a single tuner item so it only receives one station at a time.

Programming Quasar VHQ940 for DTV converter box


I assume you're trying to record from the DTV box. You will have to set the DTV box to play through channel 3 then tell the VCR to record channel 3. So basically the VCR always THINKS it's recording channel 3, but in reality it's recording whatever channel the DTV box is on. You will be unable to used timed recording unless you leave the box on whatever channel it is you're wanting to tape.
