If you live closer than 15 miles, rabbit ears
If you live closer than 20 miles, omnidirectional
If you live closer than 50 miles, midrange outdoor (oldschool arial w/ rotator)
Further than 80 miles, you'll need a long range with rotator, perhaps even an amplifier to go with it. Print off what your results were on antenna web and bring it to a RadioShack or a local antenna store and they should be able to point you to the right antenna for your particular location.

My digital stream converter box DTX9900 was purchased on 8/7/08


My (otherwise great...) DTX9900 converter box died with these same symptoms. (Units green LED flashes continuously and unit is dead)

Upon inspecting the unit I located a blown electrolytic capacitor on it's power supply board. After replacing the blown capacitor the converter has worked fine. A blown capacitor can be identified visually. The canister's top will be expanded out instead of flat. Just compare all of the caps. Look for any that are not flat on top. Blown caps will usually be discolored. The bad cap in my unit was a 330uf / 16v - 105c value cap. I replaced it with a slightly superior brand 330uf / 25v - 105c cap.

Magnavox 20MF500T/17 will not interact w/NHENS DTV Converter box


The tv just needs to be set to channel 3 or 4 to pick the signal up from the converter box.

DTV converter Box and Zenith system 3


I have the same problem.... On the back of the tv, there are three coax spots. One is for Cable, one is antenna decoder, and another is a loop. I have had zero luck getting any of those to receive the signal. Instead i have ran my digital signal to a vcr, then ran rca cables from it to my tv. I then put my tv in vcr mode, or aux depending on where you hooked it up. You can watch tv through your vcr this way.

Nhens convertor box www.dsconter.com


Posting regarding the NHENS converter in January 2009. Bought it at Radio Shaft and it works -- feeding an old Panasonic b/w TV on channel 3. Live within 25 miles of the Empire State Building and the converter has managed to pick up and lock up on all NYC signals but channel 13. Also brings in channel 41 (licenced to NJ) and its subchannels plus the nearby channel 58 and its NJN-2 subchannel. Antenna is an amplified indoor rabbit ears with a loop also from Radio Shaft perched atop a kitchen cupboard on the 2nd floor of our house. Apparently, NHENS managed to correct the above referenced problems.

Digital Converter Box


# 1. Why are you using a digital to anaolg box when you only have a analog signal coming in? The box is designed to see digital information then converting it back to analog. Please explain further what you are attemping to do?

Sanyo DS31590 and converter box


I just checked the owners manual online. Looks like this model only has an NTSC analog tuner. No ATSC digital tuner built in.

If you use cable or satellite TV services, the digital converters won't help you. The coupon-eligible ones are strictly for use with a traditional antenna. If this is your situation, ignore the remainder of this message.

If you use a regular TV antenna with this TV, then, yes, you will need a converter box. FYI, the Insignia model at Best Buy and the Zenith at Circuit City, and elsewhere (radio shack) have gotten good reviews from early purchasers. More converter box models will be available in a few months time.

If your current reception with your antenna is poor (snowy), you may have problems receiving the new DTV signals. If not, you should be pleasantly surprised with the quality of the DTV signals - and the extra "virtual" channels. Try the converter box using the RCA video and audio inputs, for a slightly better picture than with the coaxial cable inputs.

Good Luck
