Ah, the problem is likely your antenna. Make sure everything is properly hooked up, and that your TV is on and turned to either channel 3 or 4 (whichever the unit requires, or you can try both and see which works) then turn the converter on, and check the manual that came with it for a way to check for your antenna's signal strength.

If your signal is good, then use the menu button on the remote and look for an "autoscan" feature, or "autoprogramming", something along those lines, and let the unit look for channels for you (mine requires this before you can use it, not that it matters because my antenna signal is weak). From there you can access the channels manually.

Hope this helps.

How do i see digital tv with my sony kp-53v75


If its an older set, it probably wont accept digital TV programs. You will need to get a set top box to convert the digital signal to work with your TV.

Do I need a converter box for a Hitachi 53uwx10ba TV?


Check to see what input the set is on--set in menu to catv or cable and connect with set on three if using a box---if not then auto program for channels.

If set on catv you should with the remote be able to direct enter a channel to see if tuner in set works or hook a dvd etc to a rear input to set to see if it works that way.

The instructions for our DTA800 digital to analog converter box for over the air waves for TV signals say since the signal is too weak that we need a SMART ANTENNA. What is that and what do you...


Hey boykinpierce,

The phrase "Smart Antenna" is often used to describe a multi-directional antenna or antenna array. These types of antennas are able to detect and automatically adjust to any changes in the TV signal strength you receive, and can generally be obtained through most major retailers. They primarily are used in areas where digital signals are weaker or somewhat inconsistent, and will attempt to optimize the signals they do receive before sending them to a TV or digital converter box.

Please keep in mind that while some DTV digital-to-analog converter boxes may have built-in Smart Antennas, this particular model (RCA DTA800) does not appear to have this feature.

If you're still not quite sure what to look for, please remember that you can always speak with a home theatre sales agent at your local Best Buy™ store for more information.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
