I just got a Coby 13" tv/dvd. I plugged it in and can't get any channels on either dtv or tv. It's just a blue screen. The dvd works fine. Does it need to be hooked to an antennae? It's in a room with no cable. I had a tv there before with rabbit ears but needed to get a digital one before the conversion.

Any High quality RCA type Audio/Video cables will work for your installation, I just researched this for you.
As for your second question copying from DVD to DVD is a tricky situation. DVD's have several forms of copy protection including CSS Macrovision Level 2 and Encryption. Under the fair use act you are legally allowed to make backups of media that you own. I am not going to post the solution here as it may violate site rules but I know how to do it. If you contact me I will tell you how.
I hope you find this information useful, Feel free to contact me with any of your technical needs. I do this for a hobby, My info is always FREE....
This COBY only has an analog tuner. Thus unless you are close to one of the remaining low-power stations, you need a digital-to-analog converter for OTA TV signals. For digital TV, you should use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to identify the antenna and direction for the digital signals that you may be able to receive. Antennaweb assumes an outdoor antenna is conservative in the channel list it provides. Digital signal is either enough to register with the tuner or No Signal. An amplifier may be needed is the signal is split to several TVs.
If you have cable, check the type of signal coming in to the TV. If the signal has been switched to digital, you need a set top box.
Go in the menu, and do the setup process of auto searching the channel. The tv gotta ''autodetect'' working channel and there is a small procedure that differ a bit from a model to another, usually pretty easy to get in...
