This TV does not have a digital tuner built in, so you'll need a converter box if you want to get off-the-air digital broadcasts. These boxes are available at all big retailers and on-line. The US Gov't is offering $40 coupons to help pay for these, but the program is out of money and all you can do is go on a waiting list at this time. Information is at www.dtv2009.gov.

How do I get a signal from my Jack OA8200 digital tv antenna.


The signal meter should show you available TV transmitters. If you have received a signal at this location before and you definitely are sure it is powered up the antenna is defective. Check for anything that appears loose or broken. If the meter indicates a signal check the cable that goes to the TV.

Trying to put on closed caption on gateway tv 42 inch-a large black screen appears


don't know if CC can be used when watching a DVD. seems to me that it would cause a conflict on the display where the dvd is sending the image which is really not part of the TVs input control options.
CC is usually related to the digital signal from signal broadcasts and not video images coming from an external source. if it was controlled i would think it would be from the dvd remote controller. not the tv.

I cant get any channels with my coby tv


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.

I hope this helps.

Is my tv digital?


It is not a matter if your TV is compatible with a digital signal, it is the signal being offered to the TV.
Meaning, if you are using Cable TV, you are fine and need no further action because the digital signals are already converted by the Cable Box into either an analog TV (RF) signal, or a PBR (RGB or Comp.Video) signal which the TV understands via a separate input (external video input).

Does my tv have a digital tuner (RCA Model E13320, 2/2001)?


The digital tuner has nothing to do with the new signal you will be receiving in February of next year. The new video signal is a digital signal. The old video signal is analog. Your television receives the analog signal and converts it to what you see on television. You need a converter box to convert the new digital signal back to an analog signal your television can convert.
