Don't worry, all you need to do is get a digital converter box. You can get one at most electronic stores, especially the ones that sell TV's. Remember that you still need your antenna. Your antenna needs to hook up to the converter box, and then the converter box needs to be connected to your TV. The converter box just changes the signal. I hope this helps, give me a feedback if it doesn't. Good luck.
Your TV will require a Digital Converter Box to recieve over the air Digital Television Signals. You will need to hook up the antenna to the converter box and then hook your converter box to the TV. Hooking your television directly to a digital antenna will not get you Digital signals...only analog signals.
It depends on where the towers are and how strong of a signal you have in your area. You can find this information by going to the FCC's website. Even when you get the box most of the time you need to buy an antenna at your local radio shack or electronics store the good ones are like $30.00 or more so it can get spendy doing this.
Most converter boxes will hook up to your tv if it has an antenna jack.
I'm guessing the list you were looking at was a list of converter boxes that could be purchased with the governments coupons, not a list of tv's. I hope this is helpful to you. Make sure the converter box you buy has coaxial out to tv jack(it will look like the ant in jack).
Hi Drtrippy, If I understand correctly, you are using your VCR for the actual tuning of the TV.
The converter box itself contains a tuner, so you should now receive extra channels available only to an HD tuner.You should try connecting your antenna as input to the converter box.Then output the signal from your converter box to the VCR.Your VCR may then remain connected to your projector.
You may simply think of this as if you are inserting the converter box between your antenna and your VCR, which should be currently connected to receive an over-the-air signal.Remember, as the tuner you will be using is in the converter box, you will need to change channels using the converter box, not the VCR.
Currently, your switch box likely has several inputs, which as you said are occupied by your DVD Player, XBOX, and your television source. The output of the switch is then fed to your TV.
What you will need to do is insert the DTV converter box BEFORE the switch box. If you have an analog antenna on your TV (rabbit ears) you will need to put the converter box between your antenna and the switch box (the cables, not the box itself) so that your wiring goes like this:
Antenna ---- converter box ---- Switch box XBOX ---------------------------------switch box DVD -----------------------------------switch box
And the switch box still goes to the TV. However, you do not NEED to use the converter box until February of 2009.
