Analog to Digital TV Converter-Which Brand is BEST for the Money?

Been out Looking at Converter Boxes, Trying to find Comparisons & Reviews seems to be pretty much "Hit 'n Miss" I'm more confused Now, than in the Beginning!! I don't have an Issue with Paying Extra(would be nice to use the $40 Card however). I have Looked at:
Channel Master CM-7000, Echo TR-40CRA, DTVPAL Plus,
Tivax STB-T8, Zenith DTT901
I'm really NOT sure as to What Features that I NEED, let alone what to Look for...I have a Roof Mounted VHF/UHF 75 Mile Range Antenna (If that helps) 1-Analog TV, and 1 Vizio Widescreen/HDTV. I have a VCR, 2-DVD Players...
Can I get pointed in the "Right" Direction Please??

    Sounds more like a "Clarification Request",
    rather than a Solution, But I will give you a "Helpful"...So, which
    Brand has the "hum", since you didn't say?? Right now I receive 10
    [Clear Reception] Channels. I'm an "Average" TV Watcher, and for Now
    the
    "Free Commercial TV Channels" Fit my Budget, rather than Cable or Satellite(which don't require a Converter).
    I
    had Hoped that an "Expert" could have given me a Specific Brand as Far
    as Knowledge of the Inner Workings of a Converter, & which one is
    getting the Best Reviews, so that I could make a More Confident, &
    Knowledgeable Purchase.

    I did a lot of research on Converters, and I came up with TIVAX , Model: STB-T8 (has Analog Pass-Through) as the BEST in it's Category for Analog-to-Digital Converters. In Fact I Purchased 2, and they seem to work Great! on the Channels in My Area that are Broadcasting in Digital Format, the Picture on my Analog TV is almost as Good as the Picture on my Digital HD Widescreen(Vizio)...Hope this "Review" will help out someone else....

My first question is how many channels can you receive now, that are clear with no snow, without a dtv box hooked up. if any channels have snowy pictures now when tuned in at best reception, you more than likely will not pick then up with the dtv box. the only option in my opinion that some may prefer from one model to another would be the program guide on some units only show whats on now and next, whereas some units may have a 5 to 7 day program guide. there is one unit out that has a noticeable hum on the audio if turned to a high volume. Im not familiar with the dtt901, but from what you have looked at so far, you shouldnt go wrong with purchasing any one of them. If you can only get 1 or 2 channels now, i wouldnt invest a fortune in a dtv box, unless its your only means of viewing television, and watch alot of tv.

I have an older Sharp Aquos TV - model # LC-32G4U. I am trying to connect a digital antenna but it doesn't work. Anyone know if I need a separate digital tuner for this TV? Or what else might be t


There is no difference between a "digital" and analog antenna. Either antenna will capture the signal. What you need is a digital converter box to convert the over air digital signal to the older analog type signal your TV needs. You connect the antenna to the digital converter box, and the digital converter box to the TV.
Several years ago, the US government forced peopel to buy digital converter boxes or newer TVs that could pick up the digital signal. Either get a digital converter box or a new TV.

All ready used box once. Now going back to antenna. Not receiving display or menu on T.V. screen.


All TV over the air is transmitted as a digital signal now. In order to see it on an older TV (read Analog), you must have a signal that you can receive(antenna hook up) and a digital to analog converter box. That box allows you to see your digital signal on older TVs. The signal is sent from the antenna to the box via a RF connection, and decoded to channel 3 or 4 (your choice). for further information see Consumer Report at:

During the past year, we've had to buy five converter boxes quit.


My DTA1050 worked OK. Then, after a period of non use, it would not work stating no signal. The antenna tests OK on a digital TV.
These things simply die, and Access has our government money!

Will the Toshiba Model 36A42 work without a converter box?


The short answer is no. The reason for that is because it's an analog TV and has a standard tuner which is now obsolete because of the changes to all digital programming last year. You won't be able to use it with out a converter box. I won't recommend a particular brand or model, that would be your choice. Here is a selection of "boxes" available.

Convert normal tv to hd tv


HELLO
If the set you are trying to convert to HD is just your everyday standard VHF/UHF analogue TV - basically forget it! I am given to understand you cannot make your standard telly show HD pictures.
Sorry! That is, of course, anyone else knows different.
