Re: about a converter box
You will need a converter box for both TVs just to get the HD channels but you might not see the HD resolution on this TVs.
Any TV that was manufactured before 2002 will require the converter box. A few of the high end TVs manufactured after 2002 might not require the converter.
Hope this helps.

You do if you are trying to get tv off of an antenna. If you have cable or satellite tv, your service provider will then have some sort of box to receive the tv channels. Let me know if you need anything else.

Good Luck & Thanks,
Yes you can connect a DTV converter box in your van.
If the TV is DC powered you will need to buy a DC to AC inverter, like these http://www.dcacpowerinverters.com/12_volt_power_inverters.html
because there are currently no dc dtv converters available.
If the tv is ac powered you will only need to connect the converter to the inverter the tv is connected to.
If you need more help or installation instructions let me know.

If you have the box connected to the TV using an RF cable to the TV's antenna input, make sure the TV is on channel 3. You should at least see the boxes menu display when the power is on. Try channel 4 if you see nothing on 3. Every box I've hooked up has been on channel 3 by default, but who knows?
If you can, hook the box to the TV using direct video and audio connections, and make sure the TV is set to the correct input.
Unless the box you bought has "RF pass-through" (and if you got your box using a government coupon, it's a sure bet it doesn't) you will notice a marked drop in quality if you try to watch regular broadcasting with the box connected. I've been installing these with a bypass arrangement so people can still watch their analog broadcasts until they go off the air in February.
If the box does in fact have no display when you turn it on and your TV is on the correct channel, your box is defective and should be returned and replaced.
the hd sat box is your converter and is compatible to your tv (1080i only). if you are asking about local braodcast (over the air) this set doesn't have an ATSC (digital) tuner so you would need a box for that. but your sat company may be giving you your local broadcast in HD.
so if you are presently using an aeral antenna for your locals yes you will need the box.
if your locals are already being supplied by your sat company no the sat box is your converter.
note: some sat boxes have ATSC tuners built in so your antenna can be used by the sat box as well.
