Digital converter box

My son Evan does not have this mitsubishi dtv yet. He is using a VCR as a converter box hooked up to a factory installed DVD player in our mini van. He an pull in television stations on this, but the picture is very week. He now want to buy a digital tv tuner converter box to try to get a better picture and because tv in going digital. We live in rural Montana and can not get very good TV signal anyway. We also don't travel that much. We are however going on a trip this summer, but it will probably be another year before we travel more than 250 miles from home. Will hooking up a digital converter box make any difference. Will the electronics and electricity in my mini van handle all of the items.
Thanks,
Kathy, Evan's mom

Hi, From now on you will need a Digital converter box(DVR- Digital video recorder)
You will not be able to recieve off air channels any more. Blame that on the cable and dish companys.

Greetings kathy76turne,

In February 2009 you will be unable to receive ANY analog television signals therefore the digital converter box will be a necessity to receive any over the air broadcasts.

I am unable to answer the question about the mini van's electrical capability, however you might find the following link handy to get more information.

Want to run my dtv receiver through new digital converter box.


You will not be able to record local station from a DTV converter connected thru a directv receiver unless there is a a/v input on the directv samsung receiver. Also check the user manual for this receiver if recording from an external source such as a DTV converter box is possible. The answer to seperating the DTV converter box from the directv samsung receiver is possible if your tv has multiple inputs. Try connecting the DTV box to the RF input and the directv samsung box to an a/v input then change inputs using the tv remote. you will need an av cable (yellow/ red/white) for the directv box and a rf jumper cable for the DTV box.

Analog to Digital TV Converter-Which Brand is BEST for the Money?


my first question is how many channels can you receive now, that are clear with no snow, without a dtv box hooked up. if any channels have snowy pictures now when tuned in at best reception, you more than likely will not pick then up with the dtv box. the only option in my opinion that some may prefer from one model to another would be the program guide on some units only show whats on now and next, whereas some units may have a 5 to 7 day program guide. there is one unit out that has a noticeable hum on the audio if turned to a high volume. Im not familiar with the dtt901, but from what you have looked at so far, you shouldnt go wrong with purchasing any one of them. If you can only get 1 or 2 channels now, i wouldnt invest a fortune in a dtv box, unless its your only means of viewing television, and watch alot of tv.

Dish dvr 625 can't get dvd/vcr player to work with tv2..


if you have the coax hooked to the VCR in you will need to change the VCR channel to 22 and leave the TV itself tuned to 3 or 4.. I recommend setting the vcr to 60 or 73 to see if you can get reception on there as that is usually the two channels that TV2 is modulated on. You can check the modulation by going to TV1 and pressing menu-6-1-5 on the TV1 remote. Thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can be of further assistance please let me know.

www.antennaweb.org

If you're 15 miles or less away, rabbit ears
If you're 20 miles or less, omnidirectional outdoor
If you're 50 miles or less, mid range
80 miles or less, long range

Print off your results from antenna web and bring them into a local RadioShack or some place near you that sells antennas, and they can help you find your best fit.

Digital tv tuner converter box


Greetings kathy76turne,

I've been looking around, and I think you've found a niche in the mobile video market that hasn't been addressed yet. As most recent mobile video systems are centered around DVD players and not broadcast receivers it maybe hard to find an actual "mobile" digital receiver. You may be able to purchase a power converter and turn the DC power to AC, but this could cause problems with your vehicle due to the extra power drain on the system.

Sorry I didn't have better news.

Can't go through the VCR in the normal way. The DTV box must be tuned to the channel you want to record and left there. Cannot tell VCR to tape one channel and watch another nor tape multiple timed and multiple channel shows unless the DTV is tuned to that specific channel. This makes most VSR functions useless.

I can't hook it back up


Is your DVD player a DVD/VCR combo? If so, hook the "tv out" (sometimes called "ant out" ) to the "ant in" on the DVD/VCR, then hook the "ant out" of the DVD/VCR to the "ant in" on the tv. Then make sure the DVD/VCR and TV are on the appropriate channel (3 or 4).
If it's NOT a combo, or these instructions don't work for you, i will need pictures of the inputs/outputs of the devices.

You will need a Digital Optical cable to hook it to the JVC. You should use a Component video cable to hook it to the TV.
