The converter box needs an antenna, but not the one built into the TV. In fact, you should get an antenna designed for the new DTV broadcasts to get the best reception. There are a number of styles and they start at under $10.

To connect the converter box to the TV, you have a couple of options. You can use the channel 3 or 4 output from the box and connect the cable to the TV external antenna jack with the appropriate adapter. Or, since this TV also works as a monitor, you could use the converter box video and audio outputs instead. If the TV has a single A/V input jack instead of separate audio and video jacks (the usual case), Radio Shack and other vendors sell the adapter cable you'll need. One might have been supplied with the TV.

How do I hook up Coby 5" black & white TV to my digital converter 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.

How do I change from Digital to Analog TV?


source mode,(button on tv usually next to menu) tv menu ( usually first page at top of screen), . or tv/dtv on remote ( some times just say DVT on it but you press it twice to go analog ) it all depends on your tv, also depends if the system on the tv has been updated some tv's when the change over happens, remove analog settings so there is no analog on the tv just digital. you can buy an analog box that will fit to the av socket or just connect a old video to the scart socket and get analog that way.

Does a CT-27614A need a digital converter for antenna?


According to http://www.dtv.gov/consumercorner.html#faq9

I hope this soultion is helpful.

How can I be sure that I am buying a digital TV (DTV)?
By law, beginning March 1, 2007, all television reception devices (including TVs, VCRs, DVRs, etc.) imported into the U.S. or shipped in interstate commerce must contain a digital tuner. Retailers may continue to sell analog-only devices from existing inventory, but must prominently display on or near the analog-only device a Consumer Alert label with this advisory:

What is the difference between “Integrated” DTVs and DTV or HDTV “Monitors”?
An Integrated DTV set is a television with a built-in digital tuner (also referred to as “a DTV”). A digital tuner is also sometimes called a DTV decoder or DTV receiver. If you have an Integrated DTV, you will not need any additional equipment, with the exception of a broadcast antenna (either a rooftop antenna or “rabbit ears” connected to the set), to receive over-the-air digital broadcast programming. Integrated DTVs can also receive and display analog broadcast programming, so you can continue watching analog broadcasts.
In contrast, a DTV Monitor is not capable of receiving digital broadcast programming without additional equipment; it is simply a display device without the processing capability for DTV reception. A digital or HD set-top box must be connected between the antenna and the monitor to receive and display over-the-air digital or HD programming.
If you have a digital or HD “Monitor” and would like to purchase a digital or HD set-top box to view over-the-air programming, confirm with your retailer that the set-top box is compatible with your Monitor.

How do I reset the factory default settings on a Coby brand TV, model #TFTV1525 without being able to view the menu screen? I have a separate cable box that is used in conjunction with the Coby TV. Someone tried using the TV remote to change the channels on the cable box. *Note: The remote for the TV is used only to control the on/off, sleep timer and volume control functions, all other functions are controlled by the cable box remote. Not being able to make it work properly, they then started messing around with the TV remote and made changes to one or more settings and the picture went out as a result. As they continued trying to fix it blindly, the sound then went out. Now without being able to view the menu screen, I can't see what needs to be adjusted in order to make the TV function properly again. Since Coby is no longer in business, I am left trying to figure out on my own how to resolve this problem. Since I cannot do so, I am looking for help from anyone who has good knowledge of this particular TV and can tell me how I can go about resetting the factory defaults in order to get the TV in working order again. I read something in the online users manual that said to unplug the TV for 30 minutes then plug it back in and that should reset everything but that didn't work. The TV turns on but that's as much as I can do at this point so I can either hope that someone can help me resolve this issue or I will need to replace my now non-working TV with a new one. If anyone knows how to perform the reset of the US version default settings other than viewing the menu screen, please let me know. Greatly appreciated. Thanks.
