How can i get local channels on my rca tru flat tv BD20TF10


The RCA BD20TF10 was manufactured before digital tuners (ATSC) were required. It only has an analog (NTSC) tuner so you will need a digital to analog converter box to watch most local channels. (These were the boxes available with the discount coupon as the ATSC broadcast transmitters were enabled.) Depending on the converter box model, use either the composite video input or use the RF antenna connection. If you use the RF output from the converter, you will need to set the TV to channel 3 or 4 (set the switch on the box to match). Then follow the directions for searching for channels with the converter box.

You may be able to find a low power analog station still broadcasting. However, you'd need to be close to the transmitter or have an antenna that is rated for a long-range signals. (Usually this will need to be an outdoor antenna with few obstructions between the transmitter and the antenna.) To scan for any available NTSC channels, make sure that the TV is set to TV mode. Then press Menu. Use the Up/Down arrows to highlight Channels and press OK. Select Auto Channel Search and press OK. You may need to confirm this step by highlighting the Start Search option and pressing OK. This will also let you add the appropriate channel for watching the signal from the converter box with the RF cable. The manual for this TV is available from Sears Parts Direct here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/user-manuals/BD20TF10-Rca-Parts-Television-Parts-manual . The direct link to the manual is http://c.searspartsdirect.com/mmh/pd_download/lis_pdf/OWNM/L0312126.pdf .

I hope this helps. I'm not sure if the Menu feature is available from the front panel buttons. You may need a remote with a matching code to do the channel scan.

Good Afternoon, I have no cable where i live now, but i have a analog converter box, how do i install it to my tv to get local channels?


you install the cable wire into the box or antena into the box then the cable or rca cables into the tv. set the tv input to the right input (usually channel 2 or 3 for a cable) or input one for the rca cables then you need to hit the scan option on your converter box to scan for the channels and the tv to scan for the channels. please let me know if this works

NO channels now, we had some before!!!!!


Here is how you should have it connected.
1- Antenna (rabbit ears or whatever)
2- Converter box
3- Television

When you turn on the TV and the converter box, go to channel 3 on the TV. You should see the converter box signal there. If you do not see it try channel 4. Bring up the convert box menu and go through the AUTO SEARCH, not manual search. Now your box will search all the frequencies and add any stations that are in your area. Make sure you change channels with the converter box, not the tv. An antenna on the roof will still provide somewhat better range, but even rabbit ears will likely pick up something. If you still get no channels you could be too far away, digital signals have a shorter range than analog signals. You can check your local TV stations website or call to see if they are broadcasting digital yet.

Want to continue to record on my VCR after digital hookup


You have to use the RCA plugs on the back of the converter box and the tv (red,yellow and white). Or you can attach the antenna wire to box and then attach the wire that comes with the converter that is listed as to the tv and instead attach it to the antenna in on the vcr. The converter box will determine which channel your vcr will get a singal to record from. Your VCR for every program will be set to channel 3 or 4 (depending on what your converter box is set to broadcast on). Make sure the power saver on the converter box is turned off as if you want to record a program in say 4 hours, if the converter box turns off in 2, your vcr will have nothing to record.

I ran seperate coaxible cable to the tv from vcr and unplug the tv converter box everytime I want to watch the vcr. You can also use the RCA cord to send the signal from the vcr to the tv and use the input signal to watch your recorded programs. I had static showing up everytime I played it through the second converter box thus I solved it by running a seperate coax line. I don't know if you will have this problem, just wanted you to be aware.
