DTV Cnverter Box

I bought a Magnavox DTV converter box from Walmart. I asked how it worked and the person told me to plug it into my tv. There are no instructions and my tv comes in worse than before. What am I doing wrong??

    I have tried this, but using the remote with the dtv box leaves my tv on one station with no signal and it doesn't work for some reason.

Your tv needs to be set on channel 3 or 4 depending on which the box uses, then when you turn the box on you will go through a semi sutomated setup, and thats it

We have a mitsubishi 1080 hd model ws-48311. We no longer have cable do we need a converter box for this tv to pick up free tv. Thank you


No. All you need is an inexpensive antenna to pick up local TV stations. If the stations are close, all you should need is something like this one: http://www.walmart.com/ip/RCA-Digital-Flat-Antenna-made-for-DTV/10542272

DOES THIS TV NEED A CONVERTER BOX?


If you scan your channels you will find out if it is digital. Say for instance you get channels 2-1, 16-3, 12-2, 12-3, then your TV is digital. Now if all your channels have no dashes and your channels come up 2, 12, 9, 16, and so on then you have an analog TV. Since this is a walmart brand there is not any online support that I can see. If you bought this a few years ago then again your tv is more than likely analog.

DTV Conversion Question


Yes you can connect a DTV converter box in your van.
If the TV is DC powered you will need to buy a DC to AC inverter, like these http://www.dcacpowerinverters.com/12_volt_power_inverters.html because there are currently no dc dtv converters available.
If the tv is ac powered you will only need to connect the converter to the inverter the tv is connected to.
If you need more help or installation instructions let me know.
Please rate this solution.
