Question about Philips Magnavox 20MT133S 20" TV
Are you using the coaxial cable to connect the converter box to the set, or have you hooked it up with rca type video cables? The latter are highly recommended if you want a better connection and have audio/video inputs on the back of your television. But you don't want both A/V & coaxial.
Also be aware that some older antennae will not pick up digital signals well. Try to use a coaxial cable all the way up to the antenna junction. Find out where most signals are broadcast from in your area and aim the antennae appropriately. (Use a compass.) See helpful link here. Your converter remote should have a signal strength button that you can use to check the various channel strengths. If you're using a coaxial link to the tv and have little signal strength, expect a poor picture. You'll also want to select the Mono option for Audio Output in the converter menu.
Finally, depending on the age of your set, if you're using rca video inputs, use the TV/Video button or the AV button on the TV or universal remote to switch the input from the channel on your TV to the video 1 setting (or whatever picks up the digital converter signal) so you'll get that clear signal. Then you can use the converter remote to change channels, adjust volume, etc.
