Have a 5" portable jensen tv/radio - no picture - how to attach a converter?


If it's one of the newer models that has the input for an antenna on the back then you can go buy the adapter at radio shack that allows you to hook it up with coaxial with either a converter box or a converter box with an antenna. The attachment looks like a 3.5 audio jack.

Trying to hook up digital converter box but cant get reception


This seems related to the TUNER and the IF section as the sound- audio and picture- Y signal does not process with the correct alignment.

Since this Curtis RT700 TV is analog, is there an adapter available to make it digital usable?


Yes,the analoge tv must hook through a box that called a Digital Converter box to get a Free AIR DTV broadcasting tvs channels signals.These Digital Converter boxes are no longer on sale by those regular big boxes stores like Walmart or Target.Tries webites like Amazon.com,Ebay.com to a Digital Converter box for any analoge tvs to uses.

Cant find a signal to get channels on portable tv


Is this TV digital ready? if not you will need a converter box for the new digital signal that the government reguired this past summer. It should work if hooked to a cable box or sat reciever but without the converter box you can no longer recieve signals through the air.

Has anyone figured out IF such a digital anntenna exist yet?


You don't need a digital antenna; any indoor UHF/VHF antenna will work. The antenna and the TV both connect to the converter box, not to each other.

A standard rabbit ears (UHF/VHF) antenna with flat wire (300 ohm) connections can be hooked up to the coaxial cable that goes to the Antenna (RF in) jack on the converter box by using a balun (Radio Shack catalog # 15-1297, about $8). If you have an antenna with coaxial cable already attached, you don't need the balun.

To connect the TV to the converter box, you need an adapter that has an F jack on one end and a 1/8" plug on the other (Radio Shack catalog # 278-257, about $5). The 1/8" plug on the adapter goes in the external antenna jack on the TV, and the other end connects to the coaxial cable that goes to the TV (RF out) jack on the converter box.

DTV transition


Hello,

I know what you are asking for but as of yet there are only the converter boxes that are for non-mountable TVs. What you could do is to install the converter box someplace else in the kitchen or wherever you have extra space and run a cable from the box to the TV, and install the antenna on the converter box. I have used this configuration for some people who have under cabinet TVs.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Converter box


put your tv on channel 3 , and make sure the back of the "converter boxes switch" is set to channel 3 not 4 if using the coaxial antenna connection to the tv
if using the video and audio jacks then the switch on the box will not matter

Casio EV 550 B portable TV 3" screen many of "us" with portables are wanting a "FiX" instead of landFILLing our sets when the switchover comes apon us. Is there a DTV FiX? costs? Are there portable DTV's?...


I have my handheld Casio TV-980 up and running with a converter box. All I needed (in addition to the converter box and standard rabbit ears [UHF/VHF] antenna) was an adapter with an F jack on one end and a 1/8" plug on the other (Radio Shack catalog # 278-257, about $5). The 1/8" plug on the adapter goes in the external antenna jack on the TV, and the other end connects to the coaxial cable that connects to the TV (RF out) jack on the converter box. The adapter would have been a little cheaper at my local, independent electronics store, but they were sold out.
 
If your antenna has flat 300 ohm wire connections, you'll need a balun (Radio Shack catalog # 15-1297, about $8) to connect it to the coaxial cable that goes to the Antenna (RF in) jack on the converter box.
 
I’ve tried 2 different converter boxes with the handheld TV, and they both work well: Insignia (Best Buy’s house brand, same as Zenith) and RCA (from Target, same as Venturer), so any government coupon-eligible converter box should work.
 
A few other tips:
 
1. I always turn on the converter box before I turn on the TV. The cpnverter box seems to take control better that way.
 
2. When I turn on the TV, the tuner doesn’t automatically go to channel 3 or 4 (where it should be set when using a converter box), and the picture quality is poor. If I use the tuner on the TV to get to channel 3 or 4, the picture quality is vastly improved. I have to do that every time I turn on the TV.
 
3. Placement of the antenna is very important. I like to watch my handheld TV when I'm on the computer, and the reception is better the further away from the computer the antenna is located. I'm actually using a 6' coaxial cable for the antenna, but I could also have used 2 shorter cables with a coupler that has an F jack at both ends (Radio Shack catalog # 278-304, about $3).
