This is definitely a possibility, you should definitely look into returning the equipment they had you buy. You might be unable to get some stations—or any at all—no matter what you do. In many areas, the "contour," or footprint, of digital coverage differs from the analog version, so digital broadcasts might not reach all the areas that got the analog signals. If your neighbors get a station and you can't, it's probably your setup, however if multiple people are having this issue then it's definitely a dead zone.

You may want to try going to something like directv, they have packages that are extremely inexpensive, around $29 a month, and currently they have a promotion for 5 free months on one of their packages.

But to answer your question, yes it's truly possible for you to be in an area that is a complete dead zone for digital TV. They should have been able to tell you this before you bought the equipment though so I would make them take back the equipment if you had to purchase it from them.

Thanks much, hope this helps

We have an indoor antenna and was wondering if we need a converter box to bring in digital channels?


Hi Virginia, we went through the analog/ digital changeover
here recently and it is all fairly straight forward really. If your tv is digital then you need no converter box. If your tv is analog then you will need a cnverter box. Some tvs are dual system compliant so only need to be switched over
The difference a good quality aerial makes to digital broadcast reception is great, I currently use amplified indoor aerials and they are adequate for our two sets but a good extenal aerial would be far better.
In direct answer to your question I believe you need an amplified indooe digital aerial if you eant decent digital reception.
An old analog aerial may not do the jov ....but you can always try it before buying any new equipment

Yes ofcourse you will get a clearer reception on any kind of televisions. I have seen Bulky flat screen tvs' give a lot better output after hooking up the box and with projection and Plasma tvs' its just mind blowing.. By the way i own a box too..

TV displays "no signal" with every input type we try. The only thing that works is the DVD. I even tryed it on a cable cord that was working from another TV


hello are you using a digital antenna, cable or satelite reception? you need to run your "set up" and scan for channels either automatically scan or manual scan, recomend a auto scan for all channels both digital and anolog, these tv will scan and save or store the channels but you need to run a channel scan first,
(even if your using a cable box or sat box)
back when we had the older anolog sets you could just plug it in and watch but with these new digital circuts need to scan and store the channels in before you can watch the broadcasts,, try that let me know what happens. hope this helps

Pioneer PDP-4340HD TV Media Receiver installation


With the cable splitter problem, I believe they used that idea to use the Antenna/cable A & B ports to watch digital and anolog TV.
Port A for Anolog and port B for Digital.

Is my tv digital?


your tv is not digital, but fear not the Dish network reciever is already digital. the satbox is digital and converts to your TV.
if you are worried about the conversion to digital this applies to off air broadcast (the stuff you get from an antenna in your local area). if you want to know if you can get HD on your set, well your out of luck there because that is a whole differant digiotal world.
to explain this better we have to understand the old broadcast world before we get into the digital world.
NTSC or National Television Systems Committee has been the standard that we have watched TV since the creation of TV (one size fits all). it is an anolog format that is plaged with problems in the broadcast world, snowy pictures due to poor reception, visible scan lines, and a whole host of other problems. so the US has adpopted a new broadcast standard ATSC or Advanced Television Systems Committee, formed in 1993 this committee came up with 18 formats to which a broadcaster may choose from to broadcast the message. of the 18 only 6 are HD or High Definition. this does not mean that your local broadcast has to provide HD but they must be digital in their broadcast (SD or HD). the advantage of going to digital is that you will never see a snowy picture ever again, you have the picture or you don't. also the broadcaster has now can broadcast multiple programs on their one carrier (frequency). so if you want HD you must have a set that can display this format and have the equipment to produce this to your set. the dish box you have may not be able to produce this signal to your NEW HD setso that may be needing to be upgraded.
