If this a digital ready TV, you won't need a converter box at all.
If not, the converter box is designed to work with all TV's.

What is a converter box for tv


2_21_2013_6_27_22_pm.jpg
A digital television adapter (DTA), or digital-to-analog converter [set-top box], or commonly known as a converter box, it is a television tuner that receives a digital television (DTV) transmission, and converts the digital signal into an analog signal that can be received and displayed on an analog television set. It may refer to over-the-air broadcast television signals received by an television antenna, or to cable TV systems which switched to digital cable. It normally does not refer to satellite TV, which has always required a set-top box either to operate the big satellite dish, or to be the integrated receiver/decoder (IRD) in the case of direct-broadcast satellites (DBS).

In North America, these ATSC tuner boxes convert from ATSC to NTSC, while in most of Europe and other places such as Australia, they convert from Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) to PAL. Because the DTV transition did nothing to reduce the number of broadcast television system standards (and in fact further balkanized it), and due to varying frequency allocations and bandplans, there are many other combinations specific to other countries.

My tv won't pick up all channels since going digital. says signal is 62 percent. we have an arial extension could this be the problem.


If you live in the United States it is a problem since going digital. Analog signals are not broadcast anymore and your antenna is designed for analog signal, not digital. Now that the DTV Transition is completed, analog TV sets need additional equipment -– a digital-to-analog converter box –- to receive over-the-air television. Analog sets equipped with a converter box will display the digital broadcasts, but not in full digital quality. The box can be purchased almost everywhere. I hope this helps and good luck!

Need a manual for Insignia LCD22


You need a digital converter box. Since the DTV transition, the broadcasting of analog (i.e. signals you get with an antenna) have ceased. You can still get them only by purchasing a digital converter box.

I have a sony trinitron wega tv model number KV-32FS120 and I was wondering if it is digital ready or do I need to get a converter box


This television receiver has only an analog broadcast tuner and will require a converter box after February 17, 2009, to receive over-the-air broadcasts with an antenna because of the U.S.'s transition to digital broadcasting. Analog-only TVs should continue to work as before with cable and satellite TV services, gaming consoles, VCRs, DVD players, and similar products.

Digital ready?


Deacon J,
You will need a digital converter box OR high definition tuner for the transition. What's the difference? A converter box will only output a standard definition signal, either on channel 3 or by composite or S video cables. A high definition tuner will allow you to watch the new digital broadcasts in hi-def, assuming they are transmitted in hi definition. The converter boxes are the cheaper option and you can get a coupon from the government for a $40 rebate on the box, but I would opt for the hi-def tuner fo the better picture quality.CNET has a good write up on the transition here:
http://www.cnet.com/1990-7874_1-5108580-3.html
I did some looking and about the cheapest hi-def tuner I could find was $150, which is 3 times what a converter box would cost. I would expect the cost to fall on the tuners over time. Perhaps a converter box may be a good solution until the prices fall, if they do. The problem is that not many companies are making the tuners, as most TV's already have a hi-def tuner built in, so there isn't a big market for the add-on tuners. I hope this answers your questions.

Digital tv not picking up digital signal??


According to the manufacturer, the EWL20D6 Television is not digital ready. If that is the case then you will have to use a converter box in order to receive the digital channels.

Digital ready?


Sanyo's customer service responded that this TV is not digital. If it's connected to an antenna, you will need to purchase a Digital to Analog converter box.
