My GE tv, an older model, no longer works on channels 3 or 4 while hooked to my DVD/VHS player. I have to set my tv to channel 91 and I use the player to change channels.

My tv is on dtv but can only get channel 2 need help getting the other channels please


I assume you are trying to change channels at the TV, and you don't get a signal on any channel except 2. My guess is you have the DTV converter box connected to the coax (tuner) input on the TV and the converter translates everything to TV channel 2. If this is correct, you select your channels using the converter box instead of the TV.

If this is not a correct interpretation of your situation, please post back with more details.

Do I need to get a digital converter box for the new dtv?


If you don't use an outdoor antenna then no, you don't need a converter box.

However some channels have to go through a rented digital cable box from your provider for some channels to be recieved.

Cannot find channel 3 or 4 on old Panasonic TV CT 20S2S


Channel 3 or 4 is what you select on your actual television. using the TV remote press 03 or 04 ( whatever the converter box output is switched to on the back.

if you cannot get the tv to select 3 or 4 ( not programmed try searching for channels on the convertor box and after it finishes auto program the TV set.

For a more detailed specific answer please list the make and model of both the TV and the digital converter box

Is my Toshiba 27AF42 TV bought in 2002 capable of receiving digital signals? And whether it is or not, how do I integrate my VCR into the TV and my converter box? Right now the TV is hooked up with the...


This is probably way too late an answer, but I just ran across your post. No TV made in 2002 has digital tuning, so you would need the converter box to watch off-the-air digital broadcasts.

To hook up the pieces, take the converter box output and run it to the VCR antenna input jack. Then run the output from the VCR to the TV's antenna input. Leave the VCR and TV both on channel 3 (or channel 4 if that's what you have the converter box output set for).

To watch TV, leave the VCR off and the signal from the converter will pass right through to the TV. You'll do your channel changing with the converter box, so the TV stays on channel 3. To record a program, just remember that the VCR will always need to be tuned to channel 3 (4), since it will have to be on the converter box output channel. Again, you pick the actual TV channel with the converter.

Note that this arrangement will allow you to program your VCR to record while you are out, but there are some limitations. You can't record things on different channels, since you won't be home to switch channels on the converter. The VCR is always recording on channel 3 (4), and the program you'll be recording is whatever channel the box is set for. If another program comes on on a different channel later, you won't be around to switch. But you could program different recording times on the same channel, anyway. You also can't record one program while watching a different channel, unless you had a second converter box.

Hope you can still use the information provided here. If this has been helpful, please take a moment to rate this a fixya. Thanks for asking here!

Digital TV Signal


Not if you cable TV, DirecTV, Dish network, or FIOS. The converters are not usable with those services.

If you use a regular TV antenna or rabbit ears, then, yes, you will need a DTV converter box. If so, I'd suggest getting one well before next February. Why? 'Cause the pictures are better, and you'll have access to "virtual channels", where broadcasters send more than one program on channels like 4.1, 4.2, etc. Also, if you have poor reception, you may need a better antenna to see the DTV signals. Better to know that before DTV is all that is being broadcast over the airwaves.
