If your tv tuner on vhf only goes to channel 13 you will not recieve uhf channels if you are hooked to cable tv. You can do a search for mid band to uhf converters (converts uhf to vhf).We used to use them in the early 80's. Even if you can find one it will only go to channel 22.

How do I get back my local channels on my Vizio by rabbit ears


Make sure that you have the TV tuner set up to receive ATSC (digital) signals via "Off Air" or "Antenna". Having it set to the "Cable Ready" mode will only get you Ch 2 - 13. These settings are usually available in set up and may even allow the TV to scan for available channels, etc.

Trying to convert from cable to antenna...I get no signal and it seemingly goes into sleep mode


Consult your TV's owner manual and enter "set up mode" to switch the RF or Antenna input from: CATV / Cable to: Antenna / Off Air. Then, allow the TV to scan VHF & UHF for signals strong enough to "tune in". You may need to upgrade your antenna in order to collect enough signal to display video properly. Make sure that your TV has a digital tuner (ATSC) as the old analog tuners (NTSC) have no signal to tune since broadcasters were forced to digital transmitters by the FCC years ago.

Use the site linked below to help you select an antenna that will allow you to receive all signals possible at your location - without buying more antenna than you need.

How do we make my TV capable of receiving regular local channels without cable or satellite hook-up?


You would have to hook up an external TV antenna on the UHF/VHF band and run a coaxial cable from the antenna to the TV and plug in the "Belling-Lee" connector into the "Antenna" socket at rear of unit.. This should enable reception via "Normal TV"

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO CHANGE MY TV TO CABLE OPTION RATHER THAN UHF OR VHF


Well let me ask some questions!
1) UHF and VHF are types of off air antenna source signals.
2) Cable TV has both the Analog 'UHF and VHF' signals on them along with the new Digital TV signal sources.
A) Is you TV have a Digital Tuner built into it or are you using a CABLE TV box to hook up to your TV?

Has anyone figured out IF such a digital anntenna exist yet?


You don't need a digital antenna; any indoor UHF/VHF antenna will work. The antenna and the TV both connect to the converter box, not to each other.

A standard rabbit ears (UHF/VHF) antenna with flat wire (300 ohm) connections can be hooked up to the coaxial cable that goes to the Antenna (RF in) jack on the converter box by using a balun (Radio Shack catalog # 15-1297, about $8). If you have an antenna with coaxial cable already attached, you don't need the balun.

To connect the TV to the converter box, you need an adapter that has an F jack on one end and a 1/8" plug on the other (Radio Shack catalog # 278-257, about $5). The 1/8" plug on the adapter goes in the external antenna jack on the TV, and the other end connects to the coaxial cable that goes to the TV (RF out) jack on the converter box.

Conversion boxes-Do I need one with an outside atenna?


you will need a converter box if you do not have a digital ready television. If you have a digital television, then no you do not need one. make sure of the type antenna you have, as there are uhf only and vhf only and combined uhf/vhf. if you only have a uhf only antenna you may be missing out on channels.

New TV Converter Boxes


If your talking about a digital converter box, it goes between the antenna and the tv.
