Do you have all connections hand tight? Are you getting an error message on the screen? What type of cable are you using to connect to the TV, Coax or RCA?


If you're not getting an error message what type of cable are you using? If it's a Coax Cable, you will want to make sure the TV is on channel 3 or 4. If you're using an RCA Cable, you will need to check the Input channel.

Thanks

TV on video can't get air TV channels


Do you have an Digital signal to analog signal converter box? if not you need to one, all signals are broadcast in digital now and your TV can't directly receive them without a converter box.

Want to convert analogue tv to digital


You need a digital converter to receive digital signals on an analogue TV (old type). If you are using an outside antenna you can purchase the box from places like Walmart, Kmart, Radio Shack for around $40. If you have cable TV or Sat (Dish or Direct TV) you need one of their boxes to convert the signal back to analogue. The Walmart type boxes WILL NOT WORK for cable or Sat TV.

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.

Can the Panasonic DMR-EH55 be made to receive digital channels? e.g. via a digital capable TV or a set top box? If not, I suspect it will be obsolete when analogue channels cease this year (in Australia)


If you receive your channels through your local cable company, nothing will change. The DMR-EH55 will continue to work normally.
If you receive your channels with your rooftop antenna you'll need a Digital to Analog TV Converter Box. The unit itself will not receive digital signals directly.

Off and on signal


Welcome to the world of digital broadcasting. Chances are the antenna isn't positioned quite right for the station that's giving you trouble. It's not a TV issue or problem with the converter since other channels are fine, so it comes down to signal strength. Most of the time it's okay, but sometimes when band conditions change it gets weak enough that the converter box can't tune it. You might try shifting the antenna slightly while noting signal strength on the different channels. You'll likely find a few degrees change may give you a reliable signal on the problem channel without noticeable reduction in the others.

I have a Hitachi 32CX38B, does it have a digital tuner?


To answer your direct question, yes it has a digital tuner. To answer your real question, NO it WILL NOT receive the new ATSC (digital) broadcast stations. The tuner itself is a digital one but works only for analog signals. The changeover in February will change the broadcast signals to a new digital format that will require a converter for your set to continue to function. Please note that the converter is only required if you receive your signal from rabbit ears or a rooftop antenna. If connected to cable or satelite, no change will be seen and no converter is needed.

To simplify:

Over air reception = need converter

Intermittent reception with DTV converter box


Hello,

I install at least 2-3 antennas a week. While Analog stations were no big deal when it came to reception, Digital signals are very directional, and can be very fickle about reception sometimes. Digital is "all or nothing," meaning that if you get enough signal to get a picture, then great, but if you don't, it won't allow you to even try to make the picture.

My suggestion is to first try a 15-25 dB amplifier (with an FM trap) on the antenna. Use it first in-line, immediately following the antenna, before it is fed to any TV's. If that doesn't help, try re-aiming the antenna directly toward the city from which your signals are being broadcast. You'd be suprised how little you have to turn it to make a big difference.

Give these two things a shot. Hope this helps you...

Does my tv have a digital tuner (RCA Model E13320, 2/2001)?


The digital tuner has nothing to do with the new signal you will be receiving in February of next year. The new video signal is a digital signal. The old video signal is analog. Your television receives the analog signal and converts it to what you see on television. You need a converter box to convert the new digital signal back to an analog signal your television can convert.
