I have the same TV. It can receive both signals, so don't worry about the converter box. You will have to make your TV do the Auto Channel Scan when it starts going to digital.

Want to convert analogue tv to digital


You need a digital converter to receive digital signals on an analogue TV (old type). If you are using an outside antenna you can purchase the box from places like Walmart, Kmart, Radio Shack for around $40. If you have cable TV or Sat (Dish or Direct TV) you need one of their boxes to convert the signal back to analogue. The Walmart type boxes WILL NOT WORK for cable or Sat TV.

How long does it take to answer my question? Cannot program cable converter to TV


Most converter boxes do not require programming. Its coax cable into converter then out of the converter into the tv with either depending on the type of input, coax, RCA cables or HDMI. The TV will need to be on the correct input of whatever source you will be using to view the channels off the converter. IE using HDMI cable you need to select HDMI on the tv to view. without the model of the converter and tv this is a close as I can get you.

Converter Box?


No Sherry. Switch to ASTC or "Air" in the menu, Click Scan. You might need an indoor antenna. A good one is a flat panel type antenna sold at biglots. Can hang this by a window. An indoor amplifier helps. Around $16 at walmart.

Do I need a digital converter box to recieve a digital broadcast with a Sharp LC-20SH4U TV?


Yes you need a digital converter box. Your model has an NTSC Analog Tuner. It doesn't have a Digital Tuner. This is why you need the converter box.


For example, many companies like Comcast or Time Warner or TCI etc used to broadcast Analog Signals through their wires. Now they have broadcasted only Digital Signals. This makes either your TV Obsolete as a Tuner or you have to get a digital converter so your Analog TV can receive the signal.

Depending on your service, it may be worth your while to get a TV with a digital Tuner.

Then again, it also depends on if you are connecting a box receiver to your TV. For example, if you have Directv or Dish, you would then use your standard Video/Audio or Composite Cables to transmit your signal OR your Out to TV Coaxial whichever works for your receiver. Some receivers have already built in converters . You should really consider all the factors to decide and determine it based on the type of service you have or want.

Will i need a converter box for this tv?


If you want to receive off-the-air broadcasts (i.e., you have no cable satellite system), then yes, you'll need a digital tuning adapter. This set has only an analog tuner.

If you are on a cable system, you might not need a converter box, but it depends on your cable provider. Some systems still offer basic cable service without a box, and you can see what channels you'll pick up with the TV set for "cable" tuning. Other systems require a digital converter box or "digital transport adapter" for any reception. You'll need to check with your cable provider to find out.

Vcr/dvd combo recording problems


I would need your exact model # to get very specific, but in general:
The "External tuner" will need to come from your TV or a cable/sat box, generally. If your TV has a Video OUT or a Monitor OUT (most television don't), you can hook a yellow AV/RCA video cable from the TV to the Magnavox. You will also need to hook a red/white audio cable from the Audio OUT of your TV to the Magnavox.

Your TV probably doesn't have a Video OUT, so you will need to buy a box. A digital cable box for your cable service would be the best investment. Alternatively, if you can find a digital-to-analog converter box (but these are iffy). Once you have one of these box types, you will need to hook a red, white, and yellow AV/RCA cable from the video/audio OUT of the box to an available video/audio in on your television.

Once your connections are correct, the general rule with tuner-less recorders is: If you can see the channel that you want to record on the television screen, then you will be able to record it.

One final note about Feb 17, 2009: Thanks to Congress, the digital transition date was moved to June 12, 2009 - many areas have already switched, but there is at least a chance that you are in an area that hasn't switched yet.

Let me know the exact model # of your television, and I can tell you if it has a video/monitor out - or, let me know what type of box you decide to buy.

Good luck!
