    Hi Palaboy!

    I'm not certain that you understand what kind of "TV" I am talking about. It is an emergency device with the features I mentioned. It is not a regular TV.

    So what I want to know are the step-by-step directions for making this specific emergency device to convert to digital output from analog. I'm not sure that it can be connected to a regular TV conversion box. After all, it is not a "TV" as much as it is an emergency device. I would recommend that you check it out on the internet before you respond. If you know it can be done, please advise. If not, I will understand.

    Thank you,

    mike :)

    Thank you, Palaboy! Your advice was great and well worth the fee. Although I might need you again for the step by step how to make it work as a B&W TV. Mike

• to work with digital signals , like viewing TV Digital

station programs you need to have a set top Box

to be connected on your TV Audio and Video Input.

• you may need to use the set top Box remote

to change programs , while your TV is set to

Audio and video In.

    Just one question?

    can you view television channel?

    If you can , and it doesn't have an audio video in, it has a tuner.

    from the tuner , you need an RF unit that coincide with the frequency of your tuner.

    then use the audio-video input of that RF unit.

    • On VHF channels there are two kinds of Modulators,

    one for Ch3 or 4

    one for ch 13

    some have UHF ( from VCR )

    • I do not know about yours , but i have both of them in VHF

    But don't expect your B/W will turn to Color

    • If it doesn't have an antenna IN connector,

    you may have to connect the RF out , direct to the Antenna and the negative of the

    battery supply

    If there is a will, there is a way.

    And possibly you are in area in where Analog TV transmission are stopped.

    You may need to downconvert the Digital Signal , using a set top box,

    a set top box have an analog out ( not all ) ,

    • these analog out goes to an RF modulator Input ( audio and Video )

    and view the station from within the TV channel ( your TV ).

    • same as above , you will need the remote of the set top box to change


    • Dont expect a Miracle that a Black and White TV can be converted to a Color TV.

    ( unless you have to convert also ).

    But you can view the pictures being sent same with the sound.

    Black and white is still being used till today , on some applications ( but that is another case )
