The TV has NTSC (analog), ATSC (digital) and a ClearQAM (digital unencrypted) tuners. So you do not need a converter box. However, digital TV signals are either all or nothing (sufficient signal for the tuner to process the signal or a no signal message will appear). You should check antennaweb.org or tvfool.com for the channels that are available in your location depending on how the antenna is pointed. (Hills, tall buildings and trees may decrease the channels available in your location.) Antennaweb is very conservative in the list of available channels and assumes an external antenna. TVfool.com provides a list of channels (in each direction) depending on the type of antenna you have. (Indoor antennas usually don't get as much signal as external ones.) Antennas for sale have a color rating that matches the colors given by TVfool.

The manual for the 27HLV95 is available from Toshiba as a PDF: http://www.tacp.toshiba.com/tacpassets-images/models/27hlv95/docs/27hlv95_om_e.pdf .

I hope this helps.

(antennaweb.org indicates that my location will only receive two channels from a transmitter 10 miles away. With an external antenna, I actually get 10 (including the sub-channels) with the majority from transmitters 30 miles away.)

Can I connect two tv to one television converter box to watch local channels


If neither TV has a digital TV tuner, you will only be able to watch one channel on both TVs with one converter box. You will also need some sort of RF repeater if you want the person in the second room to change the station without moving the box. You will need a splitter/amplifier connected to the converter box TV out. (I'll assume you are using the coax out.) If you will only watch one TV at a time, then use an A/B switch on the converter box TV out.

If one of the TVs has a digital tuner, put the splitter/amplifier between the antenna and the converter box and the TV with the digital tuner.

Note: amplifier/splitters and switches do fail. If you get a "no signal" message, take out the splitter and connect the converter box directly to the antenna or one of the TVs depending on your set up.

I hope this helps.

I am moving tomorrow and won't be able to afford cable or satellite for awhile. I have a newer model Sanyo tv. Will I need a converter box or can I hook an antenna directly into the tv to pick u


If your TV has the screw-on coaxial cable connection on the back, then you will not need a converter box. You can attach an internal or external antenna and have your TV scan for digital channels. The converter boxes are mostly for old CRT TVs with analog tuners or newer home theater "monitor" TVs which are being produced without built in tuners.

I have an older Sharp Aquos TV - model # LC-32G4U. I am trying to connect a digital antenna but it doesn't work. Anyone know if I need a separate digital tuner for this TV? Or what else might be t


There is no difference between a "digital" and analog antenna. Either antenna will capture the signal. What you need is a digital converter box to convert the over air digital signal to the older analog type signal your TV needs. You connect the antenna to the digital converter box, and the digital converter box to the TV.
Several years ago, the US government forced peopel to buy digital converter boxes or newer TVs that could pick up the digital signal. Either get a digital converter box or a new TV.

We have a 22" samsung


Hello idmcintyre,
Don't worry, all you need to do is get a digital converter box. You can get one at most electronic stores, especially the ones that sell TV's. Remember that you still need your antenna. Your antenna needs to hook up to the converter box, and then the converter box needs to be connected to your TV. The converter box just changes the signal. I hope this helps, give me a feedback if it doesn't. Good luck.

Will the Toshiba Model 36A42 work without a converter box?


The short answer is no. The reason for that is because it's an analog TV and has a standard tuner which is now obsolete because of the changes to all digital programming last year. You won't be able to use it with out a converter box. I won't recommend a particular brand or model, that would be your choice. Here is a selection of "boxes" available.
