Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

The short version: Will a 14-year-old TV work with digital-to-analog TV converter? Specifically, I have RCA Model G25342AT, built in Sept., 1994. In case yes, converter should work... Trying to connect converter from Radio Shack, Digital Stream's model DTX 9950. Got limited hints that remote is OK, bouncing boxes with messages "No Program" and "Weak Signal." But can't set up the remote to work with old TV. The whole program code part cuts off, incomplete. Any hope???

The converter box should work. Getting the remote to work with the TV might be a challenge. You might have to stick with two remotes. It used to be in the old days you could plug your tv power into the remote that way you would turn the tv on with the tuner remote but I be they stop doing that.

There is website that will let you check the digital televison signals for your area. This site should help you:

I have a RCA TV Model L46WD22YX5 it will not read any channels with an antenna, HELP!


The whole USA (years ago now) converted to digital TV signal format from analog (which is what your TV uses), this means that the TV will not pick up any channels without a digital to analog converter box, you can buy them very cheap on eBay.

I'm trying to hook up an indoor antenna to my polaroid flm-3232 do I need a digital converter box or does the tv have the necessary components?


You have an analog TV, meaning that the tuner in your TV is analog only. You must buy a digital converter to see broadcast Digital TV via your external antenna and it will be attached to the antenna input jack or other jack depending on how it comes out of the converter.

One bit of advice, there is no such thing as a "digital" antenna, they are all analog. Even a 50 year old, outside antenna aerial that you see out in the countryside will pick up the new Digital Broadcasts to be converted by a Digital Converter and displayed on a 50 year old TV.

This set was made before it was required to have digital tuning built in. You would need a digital converter box if you want off-the-air reception. (The federal program at www.dtv2009.gov that is giving $40 coupons toward purchasing a converter is out of money right now and is only putting people on a waiting list. It also looks like the changeover to digital is going to be delayed again, so you might not need to worry about it for a while longer.)

Remote not working properly


Have you tried putting new batteries? Do that first if it still doesn't work. I would get a universal remote.

Is the Weather Channel TV/Lantern/VEC130B digital?


I have the same TV as in the picture and it is analog(didn't check model #). I know of no way to use a converter box on it short of hacking it apart. Although it can still pick up any low power analog channels that maybe in your area. I just bought a nice hand cranked paperweight just a few years ago. lol

Does my tv have a digital tuner (RCA Model E13320, 2/2001)?


The digital tuner has nothing to do with the new signal you will be receiving in February of next year. The new video signal is a digital signal. The old video signal is analog. Your television receives the analog signal and converts it to what you see on television. You need a converter box to convert the new digital signal back to an analog signal your television can convert.

I have a Philips Model DVDR 3505/37 recorder. I recently hooked up a RCA analog to digital converter to the TV and to the DVD. Now it will not record. No error messages. Just no recording. Thanks


The Philips DVDR 3505/37 has a built-in analog to Digital converter. No additional converter is needed. Just do the scan for over the air channels and set to go. Works fine now.
