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.
I assume you also have no satelite dish. You are probably on an antenna (or rabbit ears). If you don't already have one, you need a DTV Digital to Analog converter box. I am assuming you want to snag broadcast signals from the air, like in the good old days before the massive digital conversion of most broadcast stations. Might be hard to find one in retail stores, but start with WalMart or Best Buy, and if that fails you might check eBay (I think it is too late to get the government rebate which absorbed almost the entire cost of the box, but you might check around on Google searching on 'DTV Digital Analog Rebate'). The DTV converter will change the digital signal now being broadcast on most stations to an analog signal that your antenna connection will recognize. Without a signal, you can't program the channels because the tuner has nothing to latch onto. After getting a signal you just follow instructions for your TV to search for channels -- if you don't have instructions you might have to play around with the menus on-screen until you find what you need, but essentially it will be obvious when you see it ... the on-screen instruction will say something like select or program channels, and may let you choose manally or search automatically (choose automatically after hooking in the DTV converter to find all channels). Hope I understood your problem, your description is a bit vague.
No.It is a digital tv.Just require a good digital antenna for a better and a longer ranges for the tvs broadcasting stations incommming signals.After a digital antenna is hook up.When u go in to the tv menu go to Setup.go down to CH. pick AIR and enter and tv should be automatically be scanning for DTV free air broadcasting tvs stations.
Ok,I am assuming you are using a converter box on this old tv,so first try to manually put the tv on ch 3 if you are hooking it to the VHF terminals of the tv......if you are using a video input(red/wht/yel/wires) then that must be selected using the input button on the tv or the original Sharp remote
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.
