    Thanks for the reply and I realize I wasn't terribly clear in my first post. I don't even get the setup menu! It's as though the converter box isn't there - just static. I have the box set to channel 3 and the TV on same...but nothing at all...

You can go online to the digital tv website and check your area for signal strength. All you do is punch in your area code and it will tell you if your able to get any channels. In your set up screen you can run a channel scan. Most of the time you need a good digital antennea which is something they don't tell you. I purchased one for about fifty dollars and it still don't work all that great I got a very weak signal.........So Good Luck and I hope this information was helpful to you Thank You For Using Fixya.Com! Have A Great Day! : )

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 got a used Toshiba CZ32T31without a user manual. When I hook up the cable all I get is snow. I also can't get local broadcast when I move the channel to the station number.


If you are in the USA, all free broadcast channels are digital, so you won't get anything without a digital converter box. In Canada, some channels are still available without the box till August 2011.
The tuner may be defective. Use a VCR or cable converter with audio/video outputs and connect them to the appropriate inputs on the TV, use the VCR or converter to change the channels.

Attenna hook up


Yes, This set does not have a digital tuner built in. All over the air signals are now digital. This set will work without a converter if hooked up to standard cable,DVD,VCR or Video game console. If you purchase a DVD with a digital tuner built in you can skip the converter box and hook your HDTV antenna directly to it.

Toshiba Color TV CF306 - Can it receive digital, with converter


The short answer is yes. The method is to set the TV to receive either channel 3 or 4. The converter will receive the digital broadcasts and "re-broadcast" them on either 3 or 4 analog for the TV to receive.

Let me know if you need anything else.

Want to use DTV converter with my Toshiba 32AF42


If you're not on cable or satellite, you will need an antenna to get off-the-air reception. This TV does not have a DTV tuner, so you will also need the converter box. Depending on how far you are from the broadcasters' transmitters, you might be able to get away with an indoor antenna. Or you might find that you get few channels with the inside antenna and then you'll need something outdoors. There are a number of styles to choose from.

The antenna hooks to the converter box, and the converter box then goes to the TV. It can be hooked to the TV's "ANTENNA" connector. This should be covered in the set's manual where it shows you how to connect a regular antenna. With the box, your TV will always stay on channel 3 or 4 (depends on how you set up the box) and you'll change channels on the converter.

You can also connect the converter to the TV with audio and video cables like you would a DVD player. Most of the "coupon-eligible" converter boxes include direct video and audio output jacks. This gives you better picture and sound quality than by hooking it to the TV's antenna input.

Hooking up a converter box is like going back in time to when cable TV was new and you had to get a converter box from your cable company. Same way of hooking it up. Hope this helps!

I have purchased the converter box to receive digital signals and my tv doesn't have the red/yellow/white connections. Is there a model of converter that will work on this tv which is an RCAModel F25423...


THE CONVERTER BOX HAS R.F. OUTPUT. JUST HOOK IT UP AND PUT THE T.V. ON CHANNEL 3.(OR WHAT EVER THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT CAM WITH THE BOX) YOU WILL NEED TO CHANGE THE CHANNELS WITH THE REMOTE THAT CAME WITH THE BOX. YOU MIGHT NEED TO SET UP THE BOX (SCAN FOR CHANNELS) THAT IS ALL IN THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT CAME WITH THE BOX.
