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.

I have an older Sharp Aquos TV - model # LC-32G4U. I am trying to connect a digital antenna but it doesn't work. Anyone know if I need a separate digital tuner for this TV? Or what else might be t


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.

I have an RCA converter box hooked up to an RCA TV and a Sanyo VCR. The TV and VCR are set on Channel 3. The converter box is set on Channel 4 and the TV is also switched to CH 4 when viewing digital...


Basically, you cannot use the coax connections for both the VCR and the RCA converter box. I would hook up the phono/cinch connectors from the VCR to the TV if you can (these are also called RCA connectors, but I'm avoiding using that name so we dont confuse the digital receiver with a cable/connector name that is the same here). There should be a yellow one for video and red/white ones for left and right stereo. I believe the RCA converter comes with a three headed cable that can do this for you. With this configuration, you can set the TV to input on these connectors and the VCR should always output there. Once that is set, you can still use the converter box to receive the signal from your antenna, then run the coax to the VCR. Now, the VCR will always have to be set on channel 4 in your setup and you will need to manually change channels on the converter box for it to record a show. Does this make sense so far?

How to connect tv set to digial tv tuner converter box


There are two ways to connect a converter box.

The simplest is to use the RF antenna cable supplied with the converter. Connect it from the box (the round threaded connector) to the TV's antenna/cable input connector and put the TV on channel 3 or 4 (whichever the converter box is set to). If your set has screw terminals for the antenna connection, you'll need an adapter to switch from the round cable connection to the screws. This may also have been supplied, but you'll probably need to pick one up at Radio Shack or another retailer.

The other way, if your TV has the inputs, is to use the audio/video output jacks on the converter. Again, the cable is usually supplied with the box. This direct connection gives better picture and sound quality than the RF method. The jacks are color coded: red and white for the audio right and left channels, yellow for video. Just connect them to the matching jacks on the TV and select the video input to watch the box. (If your TV is mono and has only a single white audio input jack, you'll need a Y-adapter to join the two audio signals from the box into one. This is also available at Radio Shack. If you don't do this, you'll only get one channel of the sound when watching a stereo channel.)

Please take a moment to rate this solution if you found it satisfactory. Thanks for asking!

Need converter box


Not if you have cable TV, satellite TV, or FIOS. If so, a converter won't do anything for you. Not needed.

If, however, you only use a regular TV antenna or rabbit ears, you will need a converter box as this model TV only has an NTSC analog tuner built in.

Digital


Nope. Not a digital Television. I'm guessing it's an older one. Most TV's sold nowdays are Digital TV ready.
