Record to vhs with converter box

I hooked up my new converter box in addition to my rabbit ears antenna, and now I get a nice digital picture on my TV but the VHS records w/o the converter.

Can I get someone to rewire this TV, or do I need to give up on recording?

I need to leave my TV on channel 3 and set the converter to the channel I want to record. When programming for future recording, it's always from channel 3, not the channel I want the converter displaying.

Mintek DTV-260


The Mintek DTV-260 only has a NTSC (analog) tuner. You will need to connect your RCA antenna to a digital to analog converter box to watch TV over the air. Then connect the output of the converter box to your TV.

The common converter boxes are limited to SD output. You might be able to find an HD converter box online. (With the standard converter box, the available outputs are coaxial and composite video.) The DTV-260 has a composite video port; alternatively set the TV to channel 3 or 4 and use the coaxial (RF) input on the TV.

There may be a low-power station that still broadcasts in analog. However these are rare. You will need to switch from CATV to OTA (Air) to check for one of these stations. Analog Cable has different parameters than scanning for over the air signals.

I hope this helps.

Hi, when in June there will be thr passage to digital I'll can countinue to use this tv or I need a converter? Thanks Maria


According to Panasonic this set is not capable of receiving digital signals, therefore will require a converter box.

You can get a coupon from the government for $40.00 towards the purchase of this box at the following address.
https://www.dtv2009.gov/

You will need an antenna that is capable of receiving UHF signals. Not rabbit ears, but the loop type of antenna that sometimes comes with rabbit ears.

I always encourage everyone to get the coupons from the government, because they are free and you can request two per household. (That’s $80.00)

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Daewoo television not receiving channels anymore


I don't know where you live or what TV stations are available, but many stations have already changed to digital before the new deadline. If the TV is still in good operating condition, I would get a converter rather than purchase a new set. You can still get a coupon at: http://www.dtv.gov/getcoupon.html

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya.

This is probably TEXT1 or TEXT2 data, which is an extension of Closed Captioning. Try cycling through the CC settings using your remote to turn it off.

Digital converter


If you recieve your signal on this TV over the Air (Rabbit Ears) then Yes you will need a digital Converter for this TV. If you are hooked up to Cable or a Satalite Dish, your TV will continue to work without the converter box.

Digital tv converters and digital tv for that matter require a good signal to operate, a good quality rabbit ears available in a number of stores will get you some local stations. To get maximum reception you will require an outside antenna.
