If the Scart/HDMI connections are connected to the appropriate ports on the TV you just need to press the Ext or AV button sometimes marked with a circle with an arrow pointing out C-> this should then allow you to choose which connection you wish to view.

What antenna do I need for this TV?

If you are concerned about over the air programming, you will need a converter box to pull in and decipher the new channels. After the converter box, a pair of rabbit ears will work just fine. If you are subscribing to cable or satellite TV, nothing more than a connection to your RF connection on the TV itself. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!

How can I receive local channels on this tv? I do not subscribe to cable and only want local tv channels. I purchased antenna, but no luck. I only get ION channels

Hi my name is Roety,
I can help you with your issue ,
all you need is an antenna then run the auto scan programming to lock in any available channels.
I roof or attic antenna would work better than an indoor antenna

RCA DTA800 TV Converter Box I need TV codes for the remote to work. The TVs are a GE, phillips magnabox

Good day,
I might be missing something, but you are describing a converter box that converts digital signals from an antenna to analog.
The converter box will be set to channel 3, and you should set your tv's to channel 3 as well.
Using the remotes that came with the tv's go into setup and if available as an option, you will find an option to select cable/antenna or automatic. Select automatic or antenna and save. If there is a selector switch on the back of the tv's, set to 3.

Connect antenna cable into input, and use supplied cable to connect from the output of the converter to your tv.

plug in power supply for converter box, tune tv to channel 3 then follow instructions to setup converter box including channel scan.
When done, the converter remote will control everything. However, the tv volume control will work even though the converter remote will have volume as well. The tv remote as well is needed to shut off or turn on tv. These functions can on most tv's be performed on the set as well.

No codes are required. The converter remote will work on any tv.

If you want to use both tv's then you will need a splitter on the output of the converter to send the signal to both tv's. Only one channel can be viewed at a time.

Viewing separate Chanel's requires a second converter box and a splitter connected to the antenna cable for viewing separate channels.

More options are possible, but I hope this helps you get started.
The converter box takes place of the tv's tuner and in essence disables it.

Mitsubisi tv CS- 40307 digital capable ?

If you are subscribing to cable or satellite TV, then the answer is no; they will continue to send an analog signal to your TV. However if you are using an antenna to receive your broadcast, then you will need a converter. Broadcast TV (over the air) has switched to a digital signal for most of the channels as of June 12th.

HD ready?

It was not a problem. It is just a question. Is it HD ready or not without a converter box or cable?
I will go to a store and ask a tech if you can not answer.

Insignia digital tv converter/indoor antenna no signal

Ok first I can save you some money. Take your "HDTV" antenna back. There is nothing different about the antennas needed receive analog and digital signals. If you got reception without your converter box, use the same antenna with your converter box.

Next let's see if there is a problem with the box. Hook up a television with the antenna. How many stations do you get? Now hook up the same television & antenna, but this time put the converter box between the antenna & the TV. Do not turn on the box. Now how many stations do you get? If the number is different, the box is not allowing the antenna signal to pass through. That is bad. You want your signal to pass through the box so you can still pick up stations that don't broadcast digitally. Some areas of the country will not be covered by digital stations from all major broadcasters when the changeover happens in Feb.

My suspicion is either you did not have the antenna hooked up to the converter box when you searched for channels OR you are in an area that is not yet broadcasting digitally.

I hope this helps you solve your problem. Thank you for using FixYa and feel free to add more questions here by using comments.

How do I connect an analog VCR + converter box to a digital TV?

first of all does your television and/or vcr have a cable connector and/or a set of rca outlets? if they have a cable connection in the back all you have to do is hook the cable from the antenna to the "in from antenna" on your cable box and then connect a cable from "out to tv" to "in from antenna" on the vcr and a cable from "out to tv" on the vcr to "in from antenna" on the tv. then you need to make sure on the converter box and the vcr and look for a channel selector and see what channel they are on. most vcr's have a selector for either channel 3 or 4, look at what channel it is set to and if your converter box has the same thing then match it with the vcr. then tune your tv to that channel and you should be able to work your vcr as long as the vcr/tv button shows that you are on the vcr. now if your tv and/or vcr have rca outlets and your converter box has the same then just hook the cable from the antenna to the cable box and substitute the rca cable for the regular cable and tune your tv to video or line input.

Will it work in 2009

the answer to your question is yes but, only if you are using an areal antenna to veiw tv, you will need a converter. the change over only affects those who use an antenna and have a NTSC tuner.
if you have satelite, it is already a digital format no converter needed. the sat box is the converter
if you have cable you will not need a converter. most cable companies will still pass thru the anolog signal. but getting the digital service is not a bad thing.
