Connect the converter box to TV, (usually rca connectors) connect an antenna to the box, turn it on and search for available channels. In most areas you should receive 10-20 channels.

SOURCE: hdtv converter box to vcr

Hi Drtrippy,

If I understand correctly, you are using your VCR for the actual tuning of the TV.

The converter box itself contains a tuner, so you should now receive extra channels available only to an HD tuner. You should try connecting your antenna as input to the converter box. Then output the signal from your converter box to the VCR. Your VCR may then remain connected to your projector.

You may simply think of this as if you are inserting the converter box between your antenna and your VCR, which should be currently connected to receive an over-the-air signal. Remember, as the tuner you will be using is in the converter box, you will need to change channels using the converter box, not the VCR.

Thank you,
Jason,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

SOURCE: Is my Toshiba TV digital or analog?

if there is a label on the tv stating any of these words “Integrated Digital Tuner,” “Digital Tuner Built-In,” “Digital Receiver,” or “Digital Tuner,” “DTV,” “ATSC,” or “HDTV” then yes
if they say “Digital Monitor” or “HDTV Monitor,” or as “Digital Ready” or “HDTV Ready" then no

SOURCE: Not picking up Digital signal from box but can receive it analog

So many factors could be affecting your reception. Keep in mind that the digital signal is all or nothing, either you have a signal or you don't, with the regular signal you can pull in weak signals but you can't with digital. Your converter box when turned on will probably not pick up the standard signal. The distance from the digital signal and the direction the antenna is facing also will affect your signal.
Ok with that said you will have to clear the path between the broadcast signal and your antenna, I know this will be a chore but take your antanna out of the attic and put it outside as a test only, this dosnt mean you cant have it in the attic it will just be a signal test.
Once the antenna is moved, from the menu scan for channels and see what you get. Let me know and I can help further.

SOURCE: built in tuner not working since digital transition

I do not know if you will get this message but if you do. Here goes. The protron PLTV3250 does indeed have a digital tuner that can be used with an over the air antenna. You need to push "source" on the remote until DTV is selected. With this selected and your coaxial cable from your antenna hooked up to the digital connector (not analog) on the back of this tv you can then press Menu and you will see a totally different looking menu that you are probably not used to seeing and then from there you can do an auto scan for the digital channels and it works great. I have rabbit ears hooked up to this Protron PLTV3250 and this has a beautiful picture. Far better than the picture I get from just the standard digital Directv receiver. You do not need a seperate digital tuner box to use with this TV. It does indeed have an ATSC digital tuner and it works great. You probably are selecting Source "TV" in the menu and that is not what you select for this TV to use the Digital Tuner. You need to select DTV from the source menu. Good luck and please let me know if you already knew this or if this helped you. Thanks, Tom

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.

Here is the manual: http://www.symphonic.us/pdf/om/SC313D.pdf Follow the instructions for connecting a cable box to connect your converter box. Front panel buttons can be used to make menu selections if you do not have a remote.

Do I need a dtv digital converter box for my Symphonic SC313D 13 inch tv?


Pretty much a hoax on those diverter boxes. People ran out and bought them thinking that won't have reception. I have many years in maintenance and several years in nursing homes with different tv's in every room. Not once have I needed a box to pick up channels with or without cable. I myself get 16 channels with rabbit ears and thats enough for me. And I do own a combo as well and it has simple antenna and does me just fine. Depending on your location, the old tv antennas we use to put on our houses...they work amazing! Might be able to snag one on a freecycle or craigslist site. Good luck! :)

Panasonic DVD Recorder - Digital tuner stopped working


Is your recorder hooked up to the new convert box for digital antenna reception?
I am currently researching the convert boxes for my dvd recorder. I found that some dvd recorders already have digital converter boxes already installed. This might be the case for you.
