What model of a conveter box do I need to set up the TV ?


Different TVs need different type of converter box to work properly. If your TV has audio video [A/V] input socket, go for a converter which has A/V output in it. If your tv has no A/V input, and only one ariel socket is there, buy a coverter which has RF output in it. Most of the coverters have both A/V and RF. Just buy that type of converter and it is good for you if you are not sure about the matter.

Do i need a converter box for my rca true flat 27 in? if not how do i connect a digatal antenna i have lost my manual


Your TV will require a Digital Converter Box to recieve over the air Digital Television Signals. You will need to hook up the antenna to the converter box and then hook your converter box to the TV. Hooking your television directly to a digital antenna will not get you Digital signals...only analog signals.

I have an RCA converter box hooked up to an RCA TV and a Sanyo VCR. The TV and VCR are set on Channel 3. The converter box is set on Channel 4 and the TV is also switched to CH 4 when viewing digital...


Basically, you cannot use the coax connections for both the VCR and the RCA converter box. I would hook up the phono/cinch connectors from the VCR to the TV if you can (these are also called RCA connectors, but I'm avoiding using that name so we dont confuse the digital receiver with a cable/connector name that is the same here). There should be a yellow one for video and red/white ones for left and right stereo. I believe the RCA converter comes with a three headed cable that can do this for you. With this configuration, you can set the TV to input on these connectors and the VCR should always output there. Once that is set, you can still use the converter box to receive the signal from your antenna, then run the coax to the VCR. Now, the VCR will always have to be set on channel 4 in your setup and you will need to manually change channels on the converter box for it to record a show. Does this make sense so far?

Is this a digital television? will i need a digital box with my television in 2009 ?


The "DTV ANSWERS" website says that any TV made since 2004, has a built-in digital tuner and will not require a digital converter box. If you currently receive your TV signals from your cable, satellite, or phone company, you won't need a converter box, even if you have an older non-digital TV. Only people with TVs made before 2004, will need to purchase a converter box, if they don't use TV signals from cable, satellite, or phone companies.
You might want to visit the RCA website, to see if they have a phone number to call, for any additional questions.

Will it work in 2009


the answer to your question is yes but, only if you are using an areal antenna to veiw tv, you will need a converter. the change over only affects those who use an antenna and have a NTSC tuner.
if you have satelite, it is already a digital format no converter needed. the sat box is the converter
if you have cable you will not need a converter. most cable companies will still pass thru the anolog signal. but getting the digital service is not a bad thing.
