Sanyo TV, older model, TV converter box, terk inside antenna

I bought a Sanyo TV before digital broadcasting came in. I got Comcast Cable, but I would like to get away from the monthly charge, because I am on a fixed income. I bought a TV converter box and found out I needed an inside TV antenna to hook up to the converter box. I did all of this, and it still does not work.

HELP!! ANY SUGGESTIONS?

DP models are already digital there is no need of a converter box. connect a outdoor antenna to the tv directly.

Using a digital antenna to channel scan for broadcasted channels


It is no different that channel scanning for cable or analog over-the-air channels. You simply ensure that you have selected the digital tuner of the set prior to scanning. Some older flat panel sets do not have integrated digital tuners. A digital antenna alone will not allow these sets to receive digital broadcast channels. A converter box is needed to convert the digital broadcast signals to analog for the tuner in the set. Also, sets that do not have digital tuners may not support the resolution rate of digital TV broadcasts. Most digital HD broadcasts are 720p and a few are 1080p.

I am moving tomorrow and won't be able to afford cable or satellite for awhile. I have a newer model Sanyo tv. Will I need a converter box or can I hook an antenna directly into the tv to pick u


If your TV has the screw-on coaxial cable connection on the back, then you will not need a converter box. You can attach an internal or external antenna and have your TV scan for digital channels. The converter boxes are mostly for old CRT TVs with analog tuners or newer home theater "monitor" TVs which are being produced without built in tuners.

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.

I'm trying to hook up an indoor antenna to my polaroid flm-3232 do I need a digital converter box or does the tv have the necessary components?


You have an analog TV, meaning that the tuner in your TV is analog only. You must buy a digital converter to see broadcast Digital TV via your external antenna and it will be attached to the antenna input jack or other jack depending on how it comes out of the converter.

One bit of advice, there is no such thing as a "digital" antenna, they are all analog. Even a 50 year old, outside antenna aerial that you see out in the countryside will pick up the new Digital Broadcasts to be converted by a Digital Converter and displayed on a 50 year old TV.

How do I connect it to my cable? I have a co-axial line (I think) and there is no visible port to plug into!


The ILO 2600 does NOT have an ATSC tuner for the current digital broadcasting.
Note that a slightly later version *might* have come with such.

Later models equipped with it usually have TWO coaxial inputs on the back whereas the original one only has the now obsolete NTSC coaxial input.

There are several possible explanations of what your friend has told you: he may have had a different model or he may have connected it to a cable which was broadcasting in the older analog format already. Or he simply had a different TV with a built-in tuner that can pick the signal.

So first thing I'd check is the number of antenna inputs you have on the back. When there are two the second is usually labelled "DTV".

Second, is there a Comcast cable box somewhere on your end? And if yes then isn't there other outputs to it other than the coaxial cable?

Finally, it is possible to find a digital-to-analog converter on Internet and eBay in particular, but I wouldn't rush doing that. It's practically half the price of a new 32'' LCD TV and you wouldn't be quite happy with the quality anyway.

Antenna&box won't pick up the one all-digital channel in my area.


If you're using a conbverter box with this AKAI TV then you don't need it, it already includes an ATSC digital tuner inside it.

If the channel you're referring to is actually KMBC in KC, MO, you may be too far away from their broadcast towers to receive a digital signal, they broadcast on UHF channel 31 which is actually digital channel 29.1, if you go to http://www.antennaweb.org and type-in your address and then click continue on the next page it will show a list of all the broadcast antenna's for your area and how far your house is located from them.

But first, if you have this AKAI TV where you posted your question, then remove the converter box and attach the antenna coax cable to the digital input on the TV and then scan for channels from the TV itself and you should get better results.

Good Luck!
