No.

The converter box converts the digital signal to analog and feeds it to the TV.

The only reason for the box to be the same manufacturer is if you want to keep all your equipment the same make.

It does not matter who makes the box.

What model of a conveter box do I need to set up the TV ?


Different TVs need different type of converter box to work properly. If your TV has audio video [A/V] input socket, go for a converter which has A/V output in it. If your tv has no A/V input, and only one ariel socket is there, buy a coverter which has RF output in it. Most of the coverters have both A/V and RF. Just buy that type of converter and it is good for you if you are not sure about the matter.

Converter box


put your tv on channel 3 , and make sure the back of the "converter boxes switch" is set to channel 3 not 4 if using the coaxial antenna connection to the tv
if using the video and audio jacks then the switch on the box will not matter

DIGITAL READY?


Usually most newer high end sets are digital ready, after looking in the manual I could not find any mention of it being digital ready therefore I would have to say no and you will need a converter box, you can still get $40 off on up to converter boxs through the Govt. here is a link for that. You have to request your coupons by Dec 31st. I requested them and got them in a matter of weeks.

Hope this helps

Receive one channel with Coverter Box


Make sure those 6 channels are also being broadcast in Digital format also, otherwise your converter box won't have a digital signal to convert for your TV. The switchover date is early next year I believe.

Digital Transition


If this a digital ready TV, you won't need a converter box at all.
If not, the converter box is designed to work with all TV's.

Digital converter box setup


Hi Kilroy75,

It sounds like you probably set this up properly. The converter box is powered on, indicated by the blue light (it is illuminated red if powered off). I would recommend that you check to see if your TV has to be on a specific channel to receive external input.

To double check the connection, you should be able to follow the antenna into the converter box, then the converter box into the TV. Check to make sure you have input/output correct, and that video matches video, audio matches audio, etc.

Also, some antennas require power. If this is the case, make sure the antenna is plugged in and powered on.

If none of these suggestions help, I would try a little troubleshooting to determine which piece of equipment is giving the problem. Try connecting another device into the same input to see if your TV receives signal through input 1. You may also try a different set of A/V cables or a different input on the TV.

If you still are unable to get your setup working, I recommend you bring the converter box into your local Geek Squad® precinct for further troubleshooting and advice.

Thank you,
Jason,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

The DTV converter is only required if you use an external antenna. If you have cable or satelite, nothing will change. There are no other options.
