Converter Box Problem

I have a newer Analog Magnavox TV and a RCA Converter Box. When the Box is on, I can't receive NBC or CBS, no matter how I ajust the antenna, but if I put the Box on stand-by and use analog signal, I receive them fine. Could it still be an antenna problem? wilmington de I can get NBC some of the time but less than 50%

What type of antenna are you adjusting? If it is not a UHF then you will have to try another such as a Smart Antenna or one from Wal-Mart for digital TV.

Do I need a digtal converter box to pick up local stations via antenna?

Some local broadcasting will still be in analog but this is just jor simple programming such as college stations. To get local programming such as NBC,ABC,CBS etc. you will need to get a converter since the government has mandated all broadcast be in digital to free up air space.

Note that it may be a case by case basis for some smaller areas.

I can't see NBC with the digital conveter box

Is it only NBC? Or are the other over air channels (ABC, CBS, Fox) also not seen?

Are you going through a splitter with the incoming signal? if so, make sure the splitter frequency range is at least 5 to 1000 Mhz.

You should see the 'temporary lost signal' wording on the channel. Check all cable connections to make sure the cable to connector plug are tight and not loose.

Converter Box Problem

If you are receiving digital signal and channel is fuzzy, something wrong. Only Analog signal is fuzzy. With Digital it is great picture or nothing. For channel 6, check to see if they are broadcasting in digital yet. If they are not, this is why you are not getting a signal. If they are broadcasting in digital, then you need a stronger antenna.

How do L set up the converter with a TV , a vcr and "Dish" satte

It sounds like you need a three way splitter.
You need to reverse the connections; the splitter has input and out. Hook exterior antenna, converter box, and satellite to the three side terminals (out). Hook the single sided terminal to VCR input. Connect the VCR out to the TV input. This configuration assumes that you will be using the VCR to record from all inputs. The TV has to be set to channel 3 to act as a monitor for your other devices.
Hope this solves your dilemma.

That just means that stations you can't pick up while the box is on are not broadcasting digital signals yet. Most will be after February.
