Question about Jensen J50-MCTV Television
I have the tv on audio. The converter box (RCA DTA800B1) scans and and states "no signal." I just brought a new antenna, RCA Digital Flat Amplified Antenna (ANT1450). How to I get this working?
I have the red plug plugged into the audio space on the tv and the yellow in video input. On the converter box I have the yellow end plugged into video and the red plug plugged into "R" on the L-audio-R spot.
This is frustrating! Thank you for your help.
Certainly you can use your TV!
The converter box needs an antenna so it can tune the channels, but it doesn't have to be the antenna that's built into the TV. In fact, you'll get better reception if you use an antenna designed for the new DTV broadcasts. Several types are available at stores where they sell TVs, and they start at under $10.
Then you'll need to connect the converter box output to the TV so you can tune it in on channel 3 or 4. I'm not familiar with your Jensen set, but I've never seen a TV without some kind of connector for an external antenna. The most common type on small TV's is a jack similar to an earphone jack. Radio Shack sells an adapter that plugs in and allows you to connect the cable from the converter box. Take the set with you if necessary so you can find what you need.
