Magnavox TB 100 MW9 STB Converter Boxes I'm trying to solve the antenna/rabbit ear connection from this converter box to the t.v. I only get a pic when the rabbit ears are connected to the back of the t.v. & not to the conv box. Is this because the box won't work as long as the analog waves are still out there or WHAT? Can you tell me, in very simple English, how to connect the Rabbit Ears/Outdoor Ant to these boxes & also if they'll work now, or AFTER the switch? Thank you

Analog signals have nothing to do with your problem. Make sure that the TV is set channel is set to 3 or 4 (cf read of Converter box for channel switch). The TV received signal from Converter box on Channel 3 (or AV Cables if you have them)

Digital Converter connection with old Rabbit Ears TV


First, make sure your connections are right. The rabbit ears need to be disconnected from the TV and reconnected to the converter box. Then the output cable from the converter box connects to the TV. Then try turning the rabbit ears or re-locating them near a window if the wire is long enough. You should be able to get some signal. A newer indoor antenna may help you pull in some of the weaker stations.

NO channels now, we had some before!!!!!


Here is how you should have it connected.
1- Antenna (rabbit ears or whatever)
2- Converter box
3- Television

When you turn on the TV and the converter box, go to channel 3 on the TV. You should see the converter box signal there. If you do not see it try channel 4. Bring up the convert box menu and go through the AUTO SEARCH, not manual search. Now your box will search all the frequencies and add any stations that are in your area. Make sure you change channels with the converter box, not the tv. An antenna on the roof will still provide somewhat better range, but even rabbit ears will likely pick up something. If you still get no channels you could be too far away, digital signals have a shorter range than analog signals. You can check your local TV stations website or call to see if they are broadcasting digital yet.

NO SIGNAL on Magnavox TB100MW9 converter


Rabbit ears are not strong enough to pik up the digital signal. You need to buy a DIGITAL antenna. You can pick a powered one up at Wal-Mart, or any retailer for around 20 bucks. Once you have the proper type of antenna, go through the setup sequence again and then you will be in the "digital age". You will wonder why they didn't do this sooner!

Converter Box?


Only if your using rabbit ears or have a outside antenna, if you are on cable your ok. If you do have cable or sattelite you just need to run a new connection to it.

Need to hook up dvd/vcr combo with converter box


Connect your rabbit ears to the Insignia. Connect the Insignia to the antenna input on the "cvd/vcr combo". Now turn on the television to show the "cvd/vcr combo".

The Insignia simply goes between your antenna and your television. In your case you also have a vcr so if you want the VCR to be able to play and record digital stations you will need the Insignia between the vcr and the antenna.

No antenna reception with digital converter box.


Hello Faznmc,

I have found that with an ordinary antenna connected to the converter box it can receive nearly all channels, however I have run into cases where I had to use an amplified TV antenna to pick up signals. I have started telling folks that when they install their converter boxes to try to use the plain old rabbit ears antenna, but if that does not work, use an amplified antenna, and that usually does the trick.

I hope this helps
Thank you,

Salutation TrudyK,

Great question! First think to know is that if you are getting your programing from a cable or satellite provider a digital converter box would not be needed. These services are not being required to change their signals. If you use rabbit ears or an antenna a digital converter maybe required.

Looking at the specifications of your televisions they all appear to have analog tuners which would need digital converters to receive the new digital broadcasts.

Thankfully the FCC does have a program in place to offer coupons to assist in purchasing the new converter boxes.

For more information on the digital transition and coupon programs BestBuy.com has a FAQS, wuizzes and tutorials available at http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?id=pcmcat120600050013&type=category

Digital signal conversion


If you have cable TV, satellite TV, or FIOS, the coupon eligible converter boxes aren't needed and aren't useful with those services.
They gov't coupon converter boxes are only good for reception with a regular TV antenna or rabbit ears.

According to the specs on epinions.com, no, this TV does not have a digital tuner. So, if you use a rooftop TV antenna (not satellite dish) or an indoor TV antenna, you WILL need an ATSC to NTSC converter box. You need not wait until next year, however, as most U.S. TV stations are also broadcasting digital (ATSC) now.
