Hello - Sure can, You do NOT need a converter box. The TV has digital tuners built in and all TV broadcasts are digital now.

You need to purchase and install an antenna based on how far you are from the actual broadcast towers and what kind of geography lies in between . Obviously I don't know where you live but for example; if you reside in a city where you are located within a few miles of the broadcast towers you could get by with an indoor rabbit ear antenna. Say you live in the suburbs of that city 10-20 miles away you could probably use a small attic or roof antenna. However, as in my case where I live approximately 35 miles away with some hills and buildings between me and the broadcast source I need to use a large roof antenna mounted on a tall mast.

The simplest way to find out what kind of antenna you need is to visit this LINK and use the "See Which TV Stations You Can Get on a Map" tool. This will give you a very good estimate of the antenna you need. Until then don't buy any more antennas.

When you get it setup right you will be very pleased. OTA (over the air) HD broadcasts are better in quaility than cable or satellite.

Enjoy and thanks for using Fix Ya

Dx-L321-10A: M-B315AA on direct tv. Can't get HD. Says restricted. Tried comp. No good, haven't used HDMI. Do I need Digital? Thanks for your time.


These are directly from your users manual:

  • Built-in HDTV tuner: Add HD-capable antenna to receive over-the-air high-definition broadcasts, where available. Optional set-top box required for high-definition cable or satellite programming

  • 2 HDMI inputs: Provide an uncompressed all-digital audio/video link for the highest quality connection and support copy-protected HD broadcast content.
  • you need to do one of 2 things to get HDTV on your device. Either attach an HD- capable antenna or attach an HDMI cable from your satellite tv providers box. Good luck.

Wont receive digital channels after scan non found


Hi Patrick,

You must have a UHF / VHF antenna connected to the antenna input of the TV to scan for digital channels. Most new TV's have a threaded, round 75 ohm coax cable connection for this - but yours might even have connection consisting of 2 small screws to connect a 300 ohm twin lead antenna cable instead. Use which ever yours has.

If you are using this input for the input of a cable TV "set top box" (STB), satellite STB, or similar, you will likely only find a single analog channel (Ch3 or Ch4) after a scan as the scan will only find the output of the STB - which is usually on Ch3 or Ch4 - and not be able to scan the STB channels.

Additionally, the antenna input of the TV will only provide a standard definition picture if connected via coax cable from the STB. It will only provide a high definition picture if connected to a UHF / VHF antenna and a broadcaster is close enough for its signal to be received by the antenna. The way to obtain the best possible picture (high definition) when using an STB for tuning channels is to use an HDMI cable between the STB and TV. An HDMI cable will provide the very best picture and audio signals from the STB to the TV; all over a single cable and is the recommended practice.

I hope this helps!

What type of antenna do you reccomend cant get the tv to work at all no picture no sound not using cable no antenna tried auto PLEASE ADVISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Lets get started. First the TV you have does not have the new ATSC digital tuner built in. It uses the old NTSC tuner. You might find a few stations, however most major networks have gone Digital because the maximum power for NTSC is limited to 1000 watts. ATSC is the new digital standard for broadcasting both High Definition programs as well as standard definitions programs. So you will need a Digital converter box. They sell them at Radio Shack for around $60. You can get one on ebay for around $25. You will also need and antenna. A good old set of rabbit ears will work fine if you not to far (less than 25 miles) from the transmission towers. If your out in a rural area (greater than 25 miles from the tower) you may want to consider and outdoor antenna. Antennas Direct is a great source for antennas.
http://www.antennasdirect.com/
You can also get help estimating what kind of antenna you need at this web site:
http://www.antennaweb.org/aw/Address.aspx

However you may want to consider buying a new TV which will have a new ATSC tuner built in. You will still need and antenna.
Hope this helps.

Just got an antenna to pick up local HDTV channels. I scan the channels and none are found. does it matter if I connect to "Ant1" or "Ant2"? neither seem to work. Thanks.


According to the user's manual on page 16, press Menu and open the Setup menu. Highlight Installation and press Enter. Open the Terrestrial menu and highlight Input Configuration. Select the ANT1 or ANT2 (whichever the antenna is connected to) and select input source Antenna [not cable]. Highlight Done and press enter. Now rescan your channels. If you still get nothing, try relocating your antenna to a better place. Digital TV is highly dependent on line of site signals. So if you are in a mountainous region or surrounded by a lot of high rise buildings, you may not receive a good enough signal to register channels on your TV.

an output like ( HDMI ) would be on a dish reciever , and a hdmi input on a tv would plug into that output on the dish reciever
Is HDMI what you are trying to connect? then you would need an HDMI cable
HDTV = High Definition television , which means that you have a built in digital tuner that will pick up the digital and high definition broadcast channels with an antenna connected to the tv

Is Model Philips/Magnavox VRA631AT22 HDTV Ready


I am not absolutely positive, but I do not think you will be able to get ANY TV after the transition without a converter box, unless you hook up to cable or a dish. IF your Tv were able to get HD, it would say so on the set...

I live w/ a son & DIL and we have Direct TV so we can already get HD programs, but since none of our sets are High DEF we do not get them IN high Def.... I also have two small TVs,- one in the spare bedroom and one in my computer/ library... both of those are hooked up with old fashioned antannae..[ I also have a VCR hooked up to each]. I have added a converter box to each and can already get more stations than I did before and the picture is better,
although it is NOT in High Definition; You have to have a High Definition TV to get programs in that foremat, although you can get a GOOD program; so it was worth the small amount I paid for the boxes... I got the Government discount coupons so they were reasonable...

Last week one of the local 'Best Buy' stores advertised the converter boxes for as low as $9.99 w/ the coupon... I think the Gov'mt has run out of funds, however.

I hope this answers your question...
