YOU NEED TO GET INTO THE MENU AND EITHER AUTOPROGRAM THE SET WITH THE CONVERTER BOX ON OR BUY A REMOTE AND DIRECT ACCESS CHANNEL 3.

How can i get local channels on my rca tru flat tv BD20TF10


The RCA BD20TF10 was manufactured before digital tuners (ATSC) were required. It only has an analog (NTSC) tuner so you will need a digital to analog converter box to watch most local channels. (These were the boxes available with the discount coupon as the ATSC broadcast transmitters were enabled.) Depending on the converter box model, use either the composite video input or use the RF antenna connection. If you use the RF output from the converter, you will need to set the TV to channel 3 or 4 (set the switch on the box to match). Then follow the directions for searching for channels with the converter box.

You may be able to find a low power analog station still broadcasting. However, you'd need to be close to the transmitter or have an antenna that is rated for a long-range signals. (Usually this will need to be an outdoor antenna with few obstructions between the transmitter and the antenna.) To scan for any available NTSC channels, make sure that the TV is set to TV mode. Then press Menu. Use the Up/Down arrows to highlight Channels and press OK. Select Auto Channel Search and press OK. You may need to confirm this step by highlighting the Start Search option and pressing OK. This will also let you add the appropriate channel for watching the signal from the converter box with the RF cable. The manual for this TV is available from Sears Parts Direct here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/user-manuals/BD20TF10-Rca-Parts-Television-Parts-manual . The direct link to the manual is http://c.searspartsdirect.com/mmh/pd_download/lis_pdf/OWNM/L0312126.pdf .

I hope this helps. I'm not sure if the Menu feature is available from the front panel buttons. You may need a remote with a matching code to do the channel scan.

Why can't i pick up channels using a RCA converter box, amplified HDTV antenna on my rca XL 100 analogue TV


If you live a good distance from the TV station you may need a better antenna. Did you do a channel search on the converter box? You'll need the remote for the converter box to change channels, not the TV's remote.

How to hook up convertor to analog tv


It would really help to know what brand of converter (set top box) you are installing but I can provide some general information. Be sure to connect everything before applying power. On the rear of the box, you have two types of connectors. If your RCA TV is old, you can connect a cable from the ANTENNA OUT F connector to the antenna F connector on the rear of the TV. Connect an antenna to the ANTENNA IN F connector on the rear of the box. Set the box to send output to channel 3 or 4, whichever is not used in your area. Apply power to the TV and the box and tune the TV to the channel (3 or 4) you selected on the box. If your RCA TV is new enough to have inputs for left and right audio and video, you can connect a 3-conductor RCA cable between the appropriate outputs of the box and the corresponding inputs on your TV. The picture quality will be better the second way. Once you are up and running you can use the channel search feature of the remote for the box to locate HD channels

I am not using cable or dish...what type of antenna should i use to get the most out of the digital conversion...and is the built in converter adequate or do i need converter box?


The specs for this TV shows it has ASTC and NTSC so you do not need a converter box.
Almost all the Digital channels are broadcasted in the UHF band.
When you scan in the channels the VHF numbers will still show but the actually signal will be in the UHF band.
Go to
WWW.TVFOOL.COM and enter your ZIPCODE to get the stations in your area.

I'm confused about HD (high definition) and digital


In Australia analogue TV signals will be phased out and finished by the end of 2009 (I think).
If you have a standard analogue TV you won't be able to receive any more free to air analogue TV programs when they stop brocasting these TV signals. To recieve the new digital signals you need to buy a digital set top box (which receives digital TV signals and converts it to analogue signal that can be displayed on your old TV). The set top box will only receive Standard Definition signals and this is a lower screen resolution that is available from High Definition signals.

Digital TV signals offer approx. 15 TV channels ln High definition and Standard Definition, different programs channels will be available from the same TV broadcaster, although the High Definition pograms will also be repeated on one of the Standard Definition channels.

High Definition gives a sharper image than Standard dedinition, but you may not notice much difference because it depends much on the material you are viewing, You will notice how clear DVD and BlueRay movies are compared with the VCR tapes. To get the best images from DVD movies your player must be connected to the HDMI connector on your High Definition TV (provided your DVD player has one, usually BlueRay players will have one, they also will play normal DVD disks).

If you purchase a new High Definition TV you will also be able to receive all the Digital TV programs. Currrently these TVs are avail in Plasma or LCD screens and there are newer technologies within a few years. The Plasma screens use twice as much energy (electricity) as a LCD screen. It is suggested that the viewing distance to the TV should be 3.5 times the size of the TV screen.

Hope this answers your query.
Get back to me if you have any more questions.

I have an RCA converter box hooked up to an RCA TV and a Sanyo VCR. The TV and VCR are set on Channel 3. The converter box is set on Channel 4 and the TV is also switched to CH 4 when viewing digital...


Basically, you cannot use the coax connections for both the VCR and the RCA converter box. I would hook up the phono/cinch connectors from the VCR to the TV if you can (these are also called RCA connectors, but I'm avoiding using that name so we dont confuse the digital receiver with a cable/connector name that is the same here). There should be a yellow one for video and red/white ones for left and right stereo. I believe the RCA converter comes with a three headed cable that can do this for you. With this configuration, you can set the TV to input on these connectors and the VCR should always output there. Once that is set, you can still use the converter box to receive the signal from your antenna, then run the coax to the VCR. Now, the VCR will always have to be set on channel 4 in your setup and you will need to manually change channels on the converter box for it to record a show. Does this make sense so far?
