Digital converter box hook up

We recently purchased a digital converter box for our analog magnavox tv, along with an antenna. hooked it up per instructions included, but now our dvd and vhs players won't work. what do we have to do to get them to work properly in conjunction with our converter box. (we cannot afford to buy a new digital/hd/blue ray tv!) Radio Shack and Best Buy employees are no help--they only want to sell huge tv's for major bucks!
help!

Can you describe how the DVD and VCR were connected prior to the converter box when they were working? I need to know that in order to guide you properly.

Thanks,
Dan

I hooked up an antenna but I don't get a signal...do I need a box for my DS24425?


vzalutka,
Your model TV was built with a analog receiver. Last year in June there was a change over to digital broadcasting which left your TV unable to view over-the -air signals without a digital decoder. You will need to purchase a box. I included two site to visit for more information.

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.

Digital to analog converter box hookup


You will have to go to Radio Shack or Wall Mart, maybe Home Depot and get a matching transformer. That will have spade terminals on one end to connect to your tv and a round (75ohm male thread) to hook to your converter box.

Tuner


Afraid this set does not have a on-board digital tuner, But do you have this set hooked to cable or a antenna? If you are hooked to cable you will not have a problem, If you only have it hooked to a antenna then you might want to go to www.dtvtransition.org and check out some options for getting a converter box
