I just acquired a Toshiba 32HL95 TV and cannot get any hd channels although I have a digital cable box. I have tried using the coaxial, hdmi and video connections to no avail.


Try configuring your antenna input. Menu, Installation, Terrestrial, Input Config select your antenna 1 or 2 and > arrow over to select cable. Next auto program: under Terrestrial, Channel Program...this take some time.

Where can I find an antenna for this unit?


External FM antennas can be had for as little as $7 for the a simple dipole version (looks like a "T") to a highly directional outdoor type for over $150 at your local Radio Shack below:

http://www.radioshack.com/search/index.jsp?kw=fm&f=Taxonomy/RSK/2032189&categoryId=2032189&kwCatId=2032057&fbc=1&filterName=Category&fbn=Taxonomy/Antennas

The simple $7 dipole is a "twin lead" 300 ohm type that many home stereos shipped with because they are inexpensive, take up little room in the box and work surprisingly well for all but the very distant of stations. These antennas are also found for sale in many department and some hardware stores too. Your stereo may not offer twin lead or 300 ohm hook ups (2 terminal screws near the ANT label) but only a 75 ohm connection (like your cable tv connections), in which case, you'll need an inexpensive 300 to 75 (terminal to cable) ohm balun (or matching transformer) like this one below:

http://www.amazon.com/Parts-Express-Push-On-Balun/dp/B0002ZPIOQ

or to go the other way - from 75 to 300 (cable to terminal) ohm balun like this one:

1. Check for any loose connections starting at your TV. (Coaxial cables unscrew themselves with vibration...) Check all outdoor connections for corrosion and cut off and replace any cable ends that show corrosion.

2. Check your alignment - (positioning or pointing)
http://www.wowvision.tv/OTAalignment.htm

3. Replace the balun a.k.a. 75 ohm matching transformer.

If these don't work, a larger antenna is needed...

with one exception:

That exception is if your signal is too high. If this is the case, change alignment to reduce signal a little.

How does my mother hook up the antenna and get her TV to work (no cable)


First, you'll want to make sure that her antenna has a coaxial cable (one of the thick round ones) coming from the antenna. Some older ones have a flat piece of plastic with two wires sticking out. These are less efficient, but if you have one, use a balun (a vhf-uhf matching transformer) to change to coax. You can google "balun" if you don't know what one looks like. Next, you'll need a digital converter box (if you don't have one already). Connect one end of the coax cable to the antenna (or balun) and the other to the jack on the converter box labeled "ant. in." Finally, using another coax cable, connect one end to the jack on the converter box labeled "to tv" and the other end to the jack on the TV labeled "ant. in." Finally, depending on your converter box, you will probably need to "scan " for tv channels. Follow the setup instructions with the converter box to do this. If you don't have the instructions, try googling the converter box company and model number to find the users manual. I hope this helps, and good luck! Sincerely, Der Strom

Replace antenna


Remove old Antenna
  1. Activate the antenna switch to the up position.
  2. Using the wrench or needle-nose pliers, loosen and remove the original retaining nut on the base of the antenna mast.
  3. Gain access to the underside of the area of the trunk where the antenna is located.
  4. Remove the bracket or brace that is below the hole and holding the antenna in place.
  5. Remove the mast.
  6. Find the motor that controls the antenna mast. Generally, power antennas will have a constant 12-volt lead and a ground lead. The ground lead will be grounded to the panel next to the motor.
  7. Remove the ground lead from the panel.
  8. Pull out the antenna coaxial cable.
  9. Unplug the coaxial from the extension coaxial cable.
  10. Remove the original antenna coaxial cable. Note the route the cable follows.

Install new Antenna
  1. Inspect the fender area where the antenna mast will be mounted for rust.
  2. Clean the area before installing the new antenna.
  3. Plug the new antenna coaxial cable to the extension coaxial cable.
  4. Plug the new antenna's coaxial cable into the radio's chassis antenna jack if there is no extension coaxial cable. Tie or tape the string you put on the extension cable to the new antenna coaxial cable. This assures that the 2 cables stay together as you route them to the antenna mount in the fender.
  5. Connect the power lead of the antenna to the power antenna lead on the radio.
  6. Connect the 12-volt constant lead to the antenna to a 12-volt source or to the ignition switch.
  7. Direct the new antenna cable via the same route followed by the original antenna cable on up to the hole in the fender in which the mast will be mounted.
  8. Ground the ground lead from the motor to a clean metal surface on the metal panel near the mount.
  9. Insert the mast into the hole. Face the serrated side of the plastic cable on the bottom of the mast toward the motor side. The plastic cable can be inserted freely to about 12 inches and will stop.
  10. Turn on antenna switch to down position until the plastic cable goes down and catches into the gear mechanism of the drum housing. If the plastic cable does not gear into the mechanism, twist the cable slightly until the cable contacts into the gear mechanism while the motor is in operation.
  11. Stop the motor after the cable goes into the housing 12 to 25 inches.
  12. Secure the bracket or strap to the bottom of the antenna mast and to the metal fender.
  13. Replace the retainer nut to the base of the antenna mast and secure tightly.
  14. Replace the panel that covers the antenna mount area.

Has anyone figured out IF such a digital anntenna exist yet?


You don't need a digital antenna; any indoor UHF/VHF antenna will work. The antenna and the TV both connect to the converter box, not to each other.

A standard rabbit ears (UHF/VHF) antenna with flat wire (300 ohm) connections can be hooked up to the coaxial cable that goes to the Antenna (RF in) jack on the converter box by using a balun (Radio Shack catalog # 15-1297, about $8). If you have an antenna with coaxial cable already attached, you don't need the balun.

To connect the TV to the converter box, you need an adapter that has an F jack on one end and a 1/8" plug on the other (Radio Shack catalog # 278-257, about $5). The 1/8" plug on the adapter goes in the external antenna jack on the TV, and the other end connects to the coaxial cable that goes to the TV (RF out) jack on the converter box.
