Can't view my digital channels

I cannot view any of the digital channels. I have a pair of old rabbit ears attached but it keeps saying that the digital channel signal strength is low. Do I need a converter box?

Get an outdoor antenna. Digital signals very rarely reach indoor antennas unless you are within ten miles of the signal origin.

Will it pick up digital air signal


It depends on how old the TV is. If manufactured after 2010 it probably will receive digital signals. You can test now by attaching a pair of rabbit ears to the antenna input and running set up to select over air channels.

I have cello TV and now no channels . have tried factory reset and still shows message as Database empty. What can you suggest?


To Get free broadcasts you will need to 1) have an antenna and 2) run the Channel Scan or Auto-TUne program. Any antenna will work - Rabbit ears etc. Once connected you need to go to setup and run the channel scan - it will find the digital channels in your area and load them into the database. You can get an antenna at Radio Shack, Meijer, Kmart etc. any place they sell TV's. Like I said even the old Rabbit Ear antennas work fine for Digital TV.

Can't get any channels on


You will need to attach an antenna: Free (broadcast TV) uses the old UHF / VHF frequencies so any TV Antenna (no matter how old) will do. Even a set of "rabbit-ears" is enough in most areas. You can find antennas at Radio Shack / Best Buy / Meijer / Kmart - almost anywhere... Attach the Antenna to the ANT/Cable Connector on your TV then use the "Auto Tune" or Channel Program Feature to scan for Broadcast Channel in your area.

2 tv's. recently had uverse removed. neighbor has rabbit ears-gets local channels. I get nothing. Does something with uverse change my tv's?


Your tv my have a setting for type of input. Cable of Air channels. You would need to switch that to AIr. Also, the air channels have gone to a digital signal and I believe they take "digital rabbit ears" I think the old style may not pull in the digital signal, but I'm not entirely certain about that one. Something like this http://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Ultra-Thin-Performance-Indoor-Antenna/dp/B00DIFIO8E/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1409885138&sr=8-1&keywords=digital+antenna+for+hdtv+indoor

Rabbit ears to digital conversion box


Your TV is old enough to have not only screw terminals for the antenna, but it sounds like it has separate UHF and VHF terminals as well. Pick up a 75-ohm to 300-ohm adapter (available at Radio Shack and probably most other places that sell TV's and antennas). This is a small cylinder-shaped part with a threaded antenna connector on one end, and a flat wire with two terminals on the other end. Connect the cable from the converter box to the round connector, hook the two terminals to the VHF antenna screws on your TV, put the TV on channel 3 and you'll be set.

You should also pick up a new antenna designed to work with digital broadcasting. If you use the old rabbit ears you were using before, you will probably not pick up all the channels available in your area.

Do I need a Set Top Box Converter?


Yes you can continue to use Rabbit ears if you are close enough to the station. Most digital stations are operationg at reduced power. Switch it to digital and let it scan for channels, you may be plesantly surprized at what it finds.

DTV Converter Box


If there is no digital tuner built into the tv or unless you subscribe to Cable TV or Satellite service you will still need a converter to view tv with rabbit ears (air broadcast).

Good luck!

Connect Rabbit ear antenna to VCR, Take Audio / Video Out and connect to DVR, and Audio / Video out of DVR to AV IN of TV. Start Tuning Channels using the Tuner of the VCR, and store them. Now, whenever you wish to record a particular Channel, select that channel on your VCR, and Record on your Blank DVD in the DVR.
