It depends on if you have cable or are using an antenna. If you have cable, make sure you have the cable that runs in between them hooked up to the correct spots. If you're using an antenna, you might need to get a TV converter box. A couple of years ago, they stopped making regular TV channels and switched to only digital channels. Most older TVs don't work with digital channels, so you need a box that will convert the picture. You can get one at any place that sells TVs (walmart, amazon, etc)
Older TVs require a converter box to receive digital signals; newer ones have the converter built in. If you cannot receive digital subchannels such as X.1, X.2 and so on chances are good that you need a box
Sorry no.All CRT(tube tvs) are analog tv.It all digital now,must have Digitial converter box and a roof or digital antena to get the analog tv to get the free DTV digital signal.Or u must cable tv.Only LCD tvs have the digital tuner insidide to pick up the free DTV digital signal without the converter box.
There are 2 options- Option 1 Connect the coax cables in the following order. 1 From the wall to the input of the converter box. 2. From the output of the converter box to the input of the VCR. 3. From the VCR to the TV input.
Here is how you record with this option. 1. Tune the converter box to the channel you wish to record. 2. Turn the channel on the VCR to channel 3 or program the VCR to record channel 3 this will record whatever channel you have your converter box set to at the time of the recording.
Option 2- (will not work on satellite) 1. From the wall to a 2 way splitter (made for digital cable. General rule of thumb with digital cable is gold does not usually mean good.) 2. One output from the splitter to the converter box and the other to the input of the VCR. 3. Connect an Audio Video (RCA (yellow/red/white cable)) from the VCR to the TV input. 4. Select the appropriate input on the TV for the VCR.
Here is how you record with option- Tune the VCR to the channel you wish to record and push the record button or program the timer to record the channel and time that you wish. Note- with this option you will only be able to record channels that you would receive without the converter box. Also each time that you split the cable line you loose part of your incoming signal and depending on how you house is set up this option could affect the quality of your digital signals on the converter box.
If you have cable running to your house, cable still uses RF and older TVs work fine. The problem comes when you try to grab stations from the air. The signal is still UHF, but the information riding on that UHF signal is digital, and will need a converter box to turn it back to analog so your older TV will understand it.
Cable: None needed.
Antenna: Need a box.
U have paid cable, u don't need the converter box.Not even the analog tv require the coverter box, if u have paid cable or satalite tv or telicom signal.All ur tvs is hook up to the Comcast Cable correct?That all u need not, require the converter box.
rf cables will work fine for older tvs. newer tvs should use the composite (yellow, red and white cable) to produce a digital picture and sound. FYI the indoor antenna works best when positioned in a window. Best thing to do is install an outdoor antenna in the attic near the gable vent or on the exterior of the house.
This television receiver has only an analog broadcast tuner and will require a converter box after February 17, 2009, to receive over-the-air broadcasts with an antenna because of the U.S.'s transition to digital broadcasting. Analog-only TVs should continue to work as before with cable and satellite TV services, gaming consoles, VCRs, DVD players, and similar products.
