Digital TVs do require a fairly strong signal in order to operate properly. The fact that your set is displaying the "weak or no signal" message is proof that the incoming signal is below the required signal input level threshold.
A "rabbit ears" type of antenna would only work if you were right next to the broadcast transmitter. I assume that you have the rabbit ears fully extended and that you have tried slowly rotating it from one side to the other to see if you can get a signal lock. But seriously I doubt it.
You should check into either a set-top amplified antenna, or a larger roof or attic mounted antenna. Note: While the larger antenna should provide a much stronger (better) signal, they tend to be directional. You might have to put it on a rotator so that you can "steer" (aim) the antenna toward a particular signal. For most people, this is unrealistic due to the expense and complexity.
My recommendation is to get an amplified omni-directional set-top antenna designed to receive DTV signals. That should fix your problem.

Also Make sure you select the HDMI input using the remote control, should be a button on there called 'Source' or 'AV' or 'Input'. You may need to press it a number of times before getting to the cable box.
Good luck.

When I connect my Laptop to my HD TV using a HDMI cable, I get a message saying "incompatible video signal has been received.Check the output video settings." Any ideas?

A TV will only display certain resolutions from a pc I would try to lower your pc resolution to its lowest setting and see if that clears of the problem if it does then slowly increase the setting until you get that message again then dial back one setting and that will be the highest resolution it will take. Also be aware that if you are trying to play certain games on your pc while displaying on your HDTV that signal will not always render.

The converter box should work. Getting the remote to work with the TV might be a challenge. You might have to stick with two remotes. It used to be in the old days you could plug your tv power into the remote that way you would turn the tv on with the tuner remote but I be they stop doing that.

There is website that will let you check the digital televison signals for your area. This site should help you:
