Hi,
all new tvs should have a built in digital tuner. Make sure that tv is set to receive antenna signal and not cable by going into the menu. Use autoprogram feature if you haven't done so already. it will lock onto whatever signal is strong enough for it to see. Also if you are using an indoor antenna it may not be able to get enough signal to the box. Indoor antennas are not the greatest especially if the station is far away.

Can my Olivia LCD LT26 be hooked to an indoor had antennae? Once antennae hooked up what are next steps?


Yes. Depending on your location depends on how well it will work. If you are in the US you can go to antennaweb.org and get a fairly accurate idea if an indore antenna will work and what you can expect to receive. After you connect your antenna you need to do a channel search.

How do I get channel with my Dynex televison?


Yes all over the air channels are now digital. Make sure that your TV is on the correct source. You can get a decent converter box at Walmart for around 20 to 50 dollars

Connecting a sansui 13 inch to a converter box


1) Connect the converter box to a good digital TV antenna and position the antenna as high and as close to a window as possible.
2) Set the converter box 'output switch' to an unused channel for your area. (Usually 2, 3 or 4.)
3) Connect the output of the converter box to the 'antenna input' on the TV.
4) Turn on both units and set the TV channel to the same output channel selected above.
5) Now select TV channels using the converter box remote only. The TV should receive all converted channels on the preselected channel.
6) Adjust the TV antenna for the best reception for all channels.

Do i need just an antenna or one of those digital converter boxes to get just local channels in Denver on this TV?


If your TV was made after 2007 it should have the digital receiver built in. If so you can just hook any antenna you wish up and receive all your local channels.

Can I use a regular antenna


Yes. You can use a regular antenna for any flat panel HD TV. You're only limitation the type of antenna and whether or not your flat panel TV has a built in digital tuner. If it does, you'll be able to scan for digital channels without any additional components, including the High Def ones,  though you may not get every channel available with a set of rabbit ears. A roof top antenna will give you a stronger signal and more channels. If your TV does NOT have a built in digital tuner, you'll have to purchase a digital converter box and attach your antenna to it to receive the digital and HD channels. Good luck.

How do i cahange my reception From analog to digital?


The Dynex LCD-19-09 19in LCD Tv has a digitial tuner in it already. I would recommend doing a channel scan and make sure it is on the "Antenna" setting instead of "Cable" and let it scan for channels. You will see all the analog channels like "7", "12" if they are still broadcasting, however, if you can pick up the digital channels, it will look more like "7-1" or 12-1; 12-2 etc.". To get to this, push the "Menu" button on the Dynex remote, then arrow down twice to TV, then push the right arrow and make sure it is set at Antenna and do a channel scan. Should get you whatever digital channels are available. If the digital antenna is not strong enough, you will need to get the digital one at Wal-Mart as previously suggested and hope that will convert the analog channels in your area.

I have a Westinghouse 26 inch TV. Model # SK-26H590D. It will not scan channel 9. I have tried both the automatic scan and the find channel scan. It is hooked to a Phillips Mant 510 vhf/uhf indoor antenna...


I carried my Westinghouse TV to the basement. Unplugged the antenna from the digital converter box and connected it to my digital TV. I then re-scanned for channels and found channel 9. After carrying the Westinghouse TV back upstairs, I connected the original set-up and tuned to channel 9 which was now showing on the screen as no signal. From that point I moved my VHF dipoles until I had located the correct position for reception. A little labor intensive, but I was fortunate to have another antenna that was receiving channel 9.

How to convert the J53 BW to receive digital broadcast signals


Certainly you can use your TV!

The converter box needs an antenna so it can tune the channels, but it doesn't have to be the antenna that's built into the TV. In fact, you'll get better reception if you use an antenna designed for the new DTV broadcasts. Several types are available at stores where they sell TVs, and they start at under $10.

Then you'll need to connect the converter box output to the TV so you can tune it in on channel 3 or 4. I'm not familiar with your Jensen set, but I've never seen a TV without some kind of connector for an external antenna. The most common type on small TV's is a jack similar to an earphone jack. Radio Shack sells an adapter that plugs in and allows you to connect the cable from the converter box. Take the set with you if necessary so you can find what you need.

I have a DYNEX DX-R20TR, is this tv digital ready?


Hi dlcase777,
Good news, your TV has both Digital and analog tuners. You will only need an antenna to recieve digital OTA (over the air) signals.
I have provided a link for information on antenna types and the channels you will be able to recieve.
