Re: have to manually turn on tv when turning on digital...
Our dish remotes are compatible with most TV manufacturers. On some older TV, we may not have codes that allow for full functionality for the DISH remote. I have provided the most common codes to work with the Sharp TV. The codes are: 628, 605, 740, 591, and 606. I have also provided instructions on programming the remote to the TV.
Remotes: Basic (Television Only)
Turn the Television On
Press and Hold the TV Power button for three seconds until the LED flashes
Enter the three-digit code using the buttons on the number pad.
Note: The LED will flash three times.
Test functionality with the TV
Return to Step 2 if the remote is not able to turn the TV On/Off, change the
volume and mute the television.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.
This may depend on the signal source of the TV. If you are watching OTA TV (or your TV is interpreting the CC from the cable or satellite signal), then use the CC button on the remote. Alternatively, depending on your exact model Hitachi TV, try using the menu to find a Tools or Options sub-menu and then turn off the CC from there. This could be under a different menu item. If you add a comment with your model number, I'll be glad to give the exact menu steps.
If you have a set-top box (cable, satellite, digital-to-analog converter box, DVD recorder), the captions may be turned on at this source. Then you will need to disable the captions from that box. With a converter box, press the CC button on the converter's remote or enter the menus for that box.
With a Dish TV set-top box, press Menu on the Dish remote, go to Properties (item 9). Click Select and then go down to Closed Caption (item 6), and press Select again. The first item in this sub-menu lets you turn on and off the captions. Press the left button and then up or down arrow followed by Select to change the setting. For other sources, check the instructions for that device or add a comment with the specific source for a solution for that device.
I hope this helps.

Yes you need a digital converter box. Your model has an NTSC Analog Tuner. It doesn't have a Digital Tuner. This is why you need the converter box.
For example, many companies like Comcast or Time Warner or TCI etc used to broadcast Analog Signals through their wires. Now they have broadcasted only Digital Signals. This makes either your TV Obsolete as a Tuner or you have to get a digital converter so your Analog TV can receive the signal.
Depending on your service, it may be worth your while to get a TV with a digital Tuner.
Then again, it also depends on if you are connecting a box receiver to your TV. For example, if you have Directv or Dish, you would then use your standard Video/Audio or Composite Cables to transmit your signal OR your Out to TV Coaxial whichever works for your receiver. Some receivers have already built in converters . You should really consider all the factors to decide and determine it based on the type of service you have or want.
Ur free air DTV converter box have problem taking in the programs codes belong to ur tv,belong to the remote.Turn the converter box off/on to reboot ur DTV converter box.Read ur owner manual,re enter ur tv codes,belong to ur tv.U tv should be up and running again.
There are a lot of possible culprits that may be causing this i.e . light source between TV and remote usage location, sunlight infiltrating into the pathway etc. However the easiest solution may be to have a technician come out and troubleshoot the issue. You may opt for a IR/UHF converter which is easy to connect and allows you more versatility with the remote. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
You'll need to program your remote control for your TV. To do this, ensure that your TV brand is one that can be controlled by the remote (a listing is in the owner's manual). Turn on your TV, then press and hold the TV Power button on the remote and press the Channel (CH) ^ or v buttons one or more times until the TV turns off. I hope this helps.
From GUEST: I found this solution in the manual and will perform this task again to see if I can get the tv will be re-recognized again. Give this a try, too.
Remote will not turn on or shut off the TV.
• You must program the converter box remote in order to control your TV power button.
• To program the remote control:
Determine if the TV is a model that can be controlled by the remote control. See "Controllable TV brands" on page 17 in the manual.
Turn on the TV.
While you press and hold TV POWER on the remote control, press CH ^ or CH v one or more times until the TV turns off. Each time you press one of these buttons, the remote control sends a manufacturer code (between 1 and 45) to the TV.
