You don't need it. I have Directv also. I would call them up to find out what happen to the missing local channel. It should be included in your subscription.

I have a Toshiba older TV that doesn't have HD digital converter box I bought a leaf ultimate antenna do I still need to use the converter box with this new antenna


if the tv does not have a built in hd digital tuner you need a Hd digital converter to analogue converter. What you need to be careful about is the available inputs on the TV if it only has AV in then you need a converter that transmits out RCA video or an analogue tv channel on RF the tv can tune into. Some of the new converters have HDMI out so if TV does not have HDMI input it won't connect. The antenna would go into the converter. Not sure how much signal you need you may need an rf amplifier if the signal is poor in your area.

Why does regulator run hot in 42lx196 toshiba?


Over current consumption by any of other boards. Your TV need a through checkup. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" or "Magazine" will make surf easy. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. Do a search by type in the brand name of your device at its search box and press "Enter".

How can I get analog channels to work with DTV without cable


Hello drandald,

Your tv is a digital tv, so you do NOT need a converter box. The tv has a built in digital tuner. But if you have any other older tv's then what you need is a converter box to convert analog signals to digital. I know there is one in Best Buy (not sure if there is one in your location) but they have one called access digital tv converter. They are about $50 (CAN). You would still need your antenna or however you get your analog signals. The antenna needs to be plugged into your converter box and then the box would need to be connected to your tv.

While watching tv, we lost sound. We thought it was the tv but when we use the wii or netflix through the wii, we have sound. We are using a Zenith tv digital converter as well as have things routed...


Reboot the digital converter box by unplug,replug it back like 10-20 mins later.If u still getting the same problems no sound,tries by checking out the RCA cable connections,tries take out the red wire and check for damages and plug it back in or tries changes another RCA cable set all to gether.After new set of RCA cable should be working 100,if not the digital converter box is the problems,than now must change the digital converter box,this box no longer on sale by those big box stores.If u require to change the digital converter box tries websites like Amazon.com,Ebay.com to buy those converter boxes.

I have a LG plasma, do i need a optical digital audio out cord to use surround sound?


In order to get true 5.1 surround sound you need to use either digital optical (fiber optic) cord or digital coax cord(RCA style ends) to link between your TV and your digital source such as DVD,digital cable box,digital satelitte receiver.You can route the audio through the TV but that's not the best way to go,I recommend going directly from the digital source to your surround sound receiver for optimum sound. Good luck !

TV antenna


Hi splhcb,

Your television is already an HDTV, meaning it is set up for receiving digital broadcasts. In this case, you should not need a separate converter box for over-the-air reception. You will need an antenna, but the type you purchase depends on things like how far you live from broadcast towers, landscapes, buildings, and where it will be located in your home. Although many antennas are being marketed as HDTV compatible, if you already own an antenna you likely can continue using it. Otherwise, it is best to speak with someone at the store who can weigh the factors in your situation to recommend the best antenna.

Thank you,
Jason,
Go Ahead. Use Us.
