I understand you have;
Toshiba 36" analog tv,
Tivax converter box,
RCA Digital Flat amplified antenna.
You want to get signal over the air;
Connect the antenna to the Tivax converter box.
Connect the Tivax Converter box to the input for the TV.
Turn on the antenna, Converter box and TV. You should get a menu on the tv screen. Follow the instructions and SCAN in the channels in your area by using the converter box remote.
You can see your channels by going to www.tvfool.com and entering your information.

Please check if the antennae is connected with right cable and the dipole is good. If so search the channels avaiilable and if there is no signal then it is possible that the TUNER is faulty. check using another TV with the same antennae or check the RF input using a VCR or TUNER.

Try changing the input device to something you are sure, works such as a DVD player. If it works, check whether the transmission is compatible with the system in your TV. Go to menu and select the correct system such as PAL/Secam etc.

As an past Radio Engineer I feel compelled to tell you that the conversion to HD in FM and TV signals did not do all of us a favor.
The coverage pattern of stations has decreased to the level of about 70% due to this new advanced technology. I think what your real problem is comes from a misunderstanding of what a HD TV signal must be supplied from. In my house as an example which is 21 mikes away from Chicago and the Willis building where a lot of TV signals are from, the need to put up a new higher gain $100 HD TV antenna was required. You can get such antennas from Antennadirect web site. You will also require a length of high grade 75 ohm coax cable- I bought the high grade Digital TV cable from Gepco International with a 3 GHz bandwidth and also distribute the signal to a number of TV's either with a Wineguard or Blonder-****** distribution amplifier.
My antenna is mounted near 30 feet off the ground. Places like Radio Shack may sell these kinds of indoor TV antennas but they are depending on the lack of knowledge of the people buying them to sell the product. It also depends on how far you are from the source of transmission. If you are 5 miles in a high rise building facing the transmission tower, you might have luck with an indoor antenna, if you are 20 or 30 miles away from transmission you might have to go to more elaborate measures to get a signal down to the TV. There is no magic to it just a need for a person who understands the signal levels and what is needed. I spent time as a Chief Engineer for 4 Radio stations in Chicago as well as was involved in a FM HD installation or two.
See if you can find a Television shop that you can ask questions about your installation. They may be able to help you mount a roof antenna if you can not do it yourself.
