Question about Televison & Video
Sorry to hear about your husband Kelly, I am twice a widower :>(
A Smart Television always has a button on the remote with something like 'smarthub' on a button. Also the back will have a socket for a network cable which looks like a big telephone cable. This is to connect it to an internet router, or cable box.
You can see the details on the television if you search Google for
make model specs.
You need some sort of converter box for cable, satellite, or even an over air telephone signal. In a condo, you just have a socket for an aerial cable.

Yes, you will need an external antenna to pull in the digital signals. It will not work with the built-in antenna on the GE. Alternately, you can use an external antenna (ie, rabbit ears), connect them to the converter box, then connect the converter box to the antenna jack on the back of the TV (I think it has one). Granted, not an elegant solution for a kitchen TV, but it beats not using it anymore.

First, you don't need a Smart Antenna, the manual is simply stating that your converter will use one if you have it. Any standard antenna will work, so there is no need for a coupon to pay for a new one, whether indoor or outdoor depending on your location and distance from each channel transmission tower. Since you don't give details of what antenna you are using, I will assume you have rabbit ears for each converter. Rabbit ears are notorious for poor reception and any metal or persons nearby will change the reception quality. I would recommend a roof mounted external antenna with splitters for the 3 converters if you have the option. If not, use an amplified internal antenna and mount it closest to the channel towers you will watch most and as high as possible. If you can find a smart antenna, which is an amplified indoor/outdoor antenna with a control cable for changing the direction of reception, for a decent price, you can use that but keep in mind that to use the control feature you will need one for each converter. Also, check antennaweb.org for information on digital channels in your area and their direction and distance. Antennaweb.org will also tell you if any digital channel in your area uses VHF frequencies. If they don't then a UHF only antenna will work fine.

Check the settings in the menu--many boxes have "power save" mode and will shut off after anywhere from 2-12 hours of inactivity. You should be able disable it or change it to a longer time.
