You have tried the converter box with another tv, correct?

You have it set for cable, not antenna in the menu?

Do other types of inputs work, such as a dvd player?

    You mean a cable box, correct, not a digital converter box?

    If it is a digital converter box, you will need to be on channel 3 or whatever input the box is using and change the channels with the converter box remote.

    If a cable box, check your tv menu setup to make sure that it is set with a cable box

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.

It wont pick any channels while scanning


There's several possibilities here:

1. You could have the cable plugged into the wrong port.

2. How old is the TV? If it isn't brand new, It's probably analog, and won't work if you're trying to pick up an antenna signal. For that, you'd have to buy a digital converter.

3. Do you have a cable box? If so, your TV should be set to one of the "Video" channels, not the numbered ones. Try hitting "TV/Video" on your remote until you see a picture. Make sure your cable box is on.

4. Everything else would pretty much boil down to poor signal, or broken equipment. Call your cable company if you have cable to determine if it's a signal issue.

Polaroid Model TLX01911C


Greetings!

This set is listed as having the ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee) tuner. This tuner provides reception of digital over-the-air (antenna/rabbit ears) signals and would therefore not need a converter box fir that use.

If you are trying to receive un-encrypted digital signals from cable, the ATSC tuner does no good. The set would then require a QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) tuner. I am not sure if this set has a QAM tuner or not. Even if it did not, your cable provider must provide a way for you to receive their signal and should make their converter box available to you.

Hope this helps explain things a little,
Rob

Philips CCB130AT02 TV/VCR combo


Is this an Analog TV? Does it have a picture tube and not an LCD or plasma screen? Most likely this is a Analog TV.

If it is an Analog TV (and I would bet that it is), then no, it does not have a digital (QAM) tuner to pick up DTV broadcasts. The fact that it has a VCR also indicates that its an Analog TV.

If you are picking up your TV signals from an outside antenna and not cable, then yes, you will need a converter box to convert the new digital signals to Analog so that you can continue to use your TV set.

If you are using cable to receive your channels, the cable company already provides the conversion for you and your TV will continue to work as before.

The government is giving out coupons to help consumers defray the costs of purchaing a converter box. The following sites are good places to obtain more information.
