Question about Jensen J53-BWR 5 in. Portable Television
Since the antenna is part of the television set, I'm not sure how to connect the antenna to the converter box. The instructions that came with the converter box seem to indicate that the antenna needs to attach directly to the converter box. Can we still use the Jensen J53 BW?
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.
