Question about Sansui Televison & Video

2 Answers

Sansui COM311ADA We're just trying to figure out if we will need an analog-to-digital antenna converter for this TV. We use it in a travel trailer--if it needs one, are there 12-volt converters out there?

You will need a converter after the switchover early next year unless you use a satelite dish like Dish Network or Direct TV.

The Artec T3a will work with 12 volts: http://www.dtvdeadline.org/artec-t3-a/

Many other converters should also work as a lot of them would use a 12Volt AC to DC adapter for home use, some use 5 Volt but a 12 to 5 volt adapter is common also. Go to your local best buy or favorite electronics retailer and ask them to see some boxes and their AC adapters.

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.

I cant get any channels with my coby tv


This COBY only has an analog tuner. Thus unless you are close to one of the remaining low-power stations, you need a digital-to-analog converter for OTA TV signals. For digital TV, you should use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to identify the antenna and direction for the digital signals that you may be able to receive. Antennaweb assumes an outdoor antenna is conservative in the channel list it provides. Digital signal is either enough to register with the tuner or No Signal. An amplifier may be needed is the signal is split to several TVs.

If you have cable, check the type of signal coming in to the TV. If the signal has been switched to digital, you need a set top box.

I hope this helps.

What antenna do you recommend wit the RCA 20F510TD


This tv has an analog tuner so you will need a digital-to-analog tuner set-top box (assuming you live in an area where most stations have been converted to digital TV broadcast). Whichever tuner you use, the recommended antenna will depend on where you live and how many tall objects are between you and the transmitters. Go to antennaweb.org or tvfool.com and type in your address. Antennaweb assumes an external antenna but is still very conservative in the channels it will identify as watchable in your area. Tvfool.com lists the channels by direction and the antenna type (by color) you will need to receive them. The color rating is based on how far the stations signal travels to reach your location. An amplifier can help you receive stations that are marginal to your location. (Digital signals are sufficient for the TV to tune them in or you get "no signal" messages.)

I hope this helps.

(I'm in a rural area with an external antenna with a signal splitter/amplifier. Antennaweb suggests I will only get the stations ~10 miles away. In fact I get the stations from there as well as the ones ~30 miles away.)

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.
