You can get a replacment from the maker of the digital converter. You will need to mail in the old unit but they will send out a replacement

You only need the digital converter if you are watching off air tv. By this I mean an outside antenna or rabbit ears. If you have Cable or Satellite you don't need it. The government stopped the coupons some time back but they only cost 40 to 50 bucks. Hope this helps. David.

Want to convert analogue tv to digital


You need a digital converter to receive digital signals on an analogue TV (old type). If you are using an outside antenna you can purchase the box from places like Walmart, Kmart, Radio Shack for around $40. If you have cable TV or Sat (Dish or Direct TV) you need one of their boxes to convert the signal back to analogue. The Walmart type boxes WILL NOT WORK for cable or Sat TV.

if your tv doesnt have a digital tuner, you cant, unless you have a digital to analog tuner converter (can be purchased in walmart, or other stores that carry tv s, electronics) you tune your tv to 3 or 4, use the converter box to scan for channels, and for changing channels instead of your tv tuner

I have an older Sharp Aquos TV - model # LC-32G4U. I am trying to connect a digital antenna but it doesn't work. Anyone know if I need a separate digital tuner for this TV? Or what else might be t


There is no difference between a "digital" and analog antenna. Either antenna will capture the signal. What you need is a digital converter box to convert the over air digital signal to the older analog type signal your TV needs. You connect the antenna to the digital converter box, and the digital converter box to the TV.
Several years ago, the US government forced peopel to buy digital converter boxes or newer TVs that could pick up the digital signal. Either get a digital converter box or a new TV.

Does my Toshiba 32HFX72 have a digital converter? My Cable is not longer working. I live in the Ottawa, ON - Canada region and it has switched to digital broadcasting. Thanks


Hi Julia.

Unfortunately, your tv does NOT have a digital tuner built into it.This means that you will need to get a digital converter box in order to receive station broadcasts.
Luckily, places like WalMart Target, Kmart and Radio Shack all carry digital converter boxes that aren't expensive.
Most run in the $30-$40 range, so you won't be out alot of money to get one.

I hope this answers your question, and have a good day!

I hooked up an antenna but I don't get a signal...do I need a box for my DS24425?


vzalutka,
Your model TV was built with a analog receiver. Last year in June there was a change over to digital broadcasting which left your TV unable to view over-the -air signals without a digital decoder. You will need to purchase a box. I included two site to visit for more information.

I have an old TV, which is now connected to the digital-analog converter box. How do I add a DVD player to this (it's so a not very mobile senior citizen can watch movies). Thanks very much!


You need an RF convertor (available most electronis stores -Walmart) Check instructions of RF converter purchased
Guideline:
The video audio cables (R,W,Y) should be connected to the matching colors on the RF converter and the RF cable (standard cable)should be connected from the RF conv. where it say "to TV" to the TV and the TV should be set to either Ch3 o Ch4 (you can usually choose on the RF conv.) the cable from the cable provider should be connected to where it says "in from antenna or cable in on the RF conv.
