Re: Don't know where the antenna input is on my tv
You can download the manual for this TV from Sanyo here:
It has all the hookup information for you.
All the input jacks are on the rear of the set, and they are pretty clearly labeled.
You can connect the converter box two ways. One is to use the RF output from the converter to the antenna input on the rear of the TV. Then set the TV to channel 3 or 4, depending on the converter box setting.
The second method, which is better, is to connect the direct video and audio outputs from the converter box to one of the TV's A/V inputs. The cable you need is usually supplied with the converter box. Just follow the color-coded jacks at both ends: red and white for right and left channel audio, yellow for video. Then set the TV to that source. This will give better quality picture and sound from the box.

You will need a digital to analog converter which you can get at Radio Shack, Best Buy and most big box retail outlets or online. Your Coby is most likely analog and will require the digital signal to be converted to an analog signal from the digital converter box to the TV. UNLESS the digital converter box has analog (round connectors on the back) then you just need an analog RCA cable (which you can also get almost anywhere even your local CVS/Walgreens) to make the connection.
If you're not on cable or satellite, you will need an antenna to get off-the-air reception. This TV does not have a DTV tuner, so you will also need the converter box. Depending on how far you are from the broadcasters' transmitters, you might be able to get away with an indoor antenna. Or you might find that you get few channels with the inside antenna and then you'll need something outdoors. There are a number of styles to choose from.
The antenna hooks to the converter box, and the converter box then goes to the TV. It can be hooked to the TV's "ANTENNA" connector. This should be covered in the set's manual where it shows you how to connect a regular antenna. With the box, your TV will always stay on channel 3 or 4 (depends on how you set up the box) and you'll change channels on the converter.
You can also connect the converter to the TV with audio and video cables like you would a DVD player. Most of the "coupon-eligible" converter boxes include direct video and audio output jacks. This gives you better picture and sound quality than by hooking it to the TV's antenna input.
Hooking up a converter box is like going back in time to when cable TV was new and you had to get a converter box from your cable company. Same way of hooking it up. Hope this helps!
Currently, your switch box likely has several inputs, which as you said are occupied by your DVD Player, XBOX, and your television source. The output of the switch is then fed to your TV.
What you will need to do is insert the DTV converter box BEFORE the switch box. If you have an analog antenna on your TV (rabbit ears) you will need to put the converter box between your antenna and the switch box (the cables, not the box itself) so that your wiring goes like this:
Antenna ---- converter box ---- Switch box XBOX ---------------------------------switch box DVD -----------------------------------switch box
And the switch box still goes to the TV. However, you do not NEED to use the converter box until February of 2009.
I just checked the owners manual online. Looks like this model only has an NTSC analog tuner. No ATSC digital tuner built in.
If you use cable or satellite TV services, the digital converters won't help you. The coupon-eligible ones are strictly for use with a traditional antenna. If this is your situation, ignore the remainder of this message.
If you use a regular TV antenna with this TV, then, yes, you will need a converter box. FYI, the Insignia model at Best Buy and the Zenith at Circuit City, and elsewhere (radio shack) have gotten good reviews from early purchasers. More converter box models will be available in a few months time.
If your current reception with your antenna is poor (snowy), you may have problems receiving the new DTV signals. If not, you should be pleasantly surprised with the quality of the DTV signals - and the extra "virtual" channels. Try the converter box using the RCA video and audio inputs, for a slightly better picture than with the coaxial cable inputs.
You will need to use a converter box if you want to receive digital signals from an antenna as the tuner is not the ASTC (HDTV) type. Once you get a converter or cable box you can come out of it with component video cables and go into one of the inputs in the back of the set.
