The converter box should be used with an antenna.

Hooking sayyo tv to directv


Not sure if I understand what is happening here but if set on channel 4 the connection for the direct TV would have to be to the coax fitting on the rear of the set.

For the audio/video inputs on the rear or side it would have to be the same ones coming out of the direct TV box to one of the same but inputs on the rear--Audio/video are one connection and coax for channel four is a different one.

Digital converter box won't work on toshiba md13p3 model


You can go online to the digital tv website and check your area for signal strength. All you do is punch in your area code and it will tell you if your able to get any channels. In your set up screen you can run a channel scan. Most of the time you need a good digital antennea which is something they don't tell you. I purchased one for about fifty dollars and it still don't work all that great I got a very weak signal.........So Good Luck and I hope this information was helpful to you Thank You For Using Fixya.Com! Have A Great Day! : )

How do I scan the channels on a Panasonic 1080i HDTV? This is for the conveter box hooked up to the DVD/VCR to the Panasonic 1080i HDTV'


The cable to the antenna and another cable from the TV needed to be hooked up and THEN follow the directions that came along with the converter box.
Channel 3/4 and scan., be sure the antenna is strong enough.

There was no need to touch the DVD/VCR box.

We have an older tv with an indoor vhf/uhf antenna. We have hooked up the converter box according to directions and even watched a video showing how to hook it up. However, with the tc on channel 3 and...


Sounds like a connection problem, if coaxial connection was made and box is turned on, then something should show up on channel 3. If rca composite connection was made something should show up on video 1 or 2. Make sure box's power button is pushed to 'ON'.

Insignia digital tv converter/indoor antenna no signal


Ok first I can save you some money. Take your "HDTV" antenna back. There is nothing different about the antennas needed receive analog and digital signals. If you got reception without your converter box, use the same antenna with your converter box.

Next let's see if there is a problem with the box. Hook up a television with the antenna. How many stations do you get? Now hook up the same television & antenna, but this time put the converter box between the antenna & the TV. Do not turn on the box. Now how many stations do you get? If the number is different, the box is not allowing the antenna signal to pass through. That is bad. You want your signal to pass through the box so you can still pick up stations that don't broadcast digitally. Some areas of the country will not be covered by digital stations from all major broadcasters when the changeover happens in Feb.

My suspicion is either you did not have the antenna hooked up to the converter box when you searched for channels OR you are in an area that is not yet broadcasting digitally.

I hope this helps you solve your problem. Thank you for using FixYa and feel free to add more questions here by using comments.

No channels downloaded


The antenna must be hooked up to the converter box. The better the antenna, the better your reception will be.

Not everyone in the country will be in range of digital signals. Digital signals have a shorter range than analog signals do right now. It is possible (but unlikely) that you are not currently in range of any digital signals.

So make sure you are set up like this - Antenna--converter box--Television. Then scan for channels. You should still pick up any analog signals while the box is hooked up, you will just view them the same way you do now, by changing the TV station rather than the converter box station.

Converter box worked fine and now wont get any signal


Did you go through the complete setup by putting your TV on Channel 3 and letting it scan all of your channels or are you just hooking up the box and not doing this? Make sure the box is set to "blue" which is On and do the complete setup.

I have purchased the converter box to receive digital signals and my tv doesn't have the red/yellow/white connections. Is there a model of converter that will work on this tv which is an RCAModel F25423...


THE CONVERTER BOX HAS R.F. OUTPUT. JUST HOOK IT UP AND PUT THE T.V. ON CHANNEL 3.(OR WHAT EVER THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT CAM WITH THE BOX) YOU WILL NEED TO CHANGE THE CHANNELS WITH THE REMOTE THAT CAME WITH THE BOX. YOU MIGHT NEED TO SET UP THE BOX (SCAN FOR CHANNELS) THAT IS ALL IN THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT CAME WITH THE BOX.
