Question about Samsung SGH-U600

1 Answer

D to A Box, with broadband passthrough no remote necessary

Looking for a D to A Box, where it passes all ATSC Channels directly through and converting them to NTSC without needing a Remote to select channel.
Want to hook it up directly to my NTSC VCR let the VCR select the channel as before and record programs. Then cable TV into VCR to watch live or recorded programs, using the TV or VCR Channel selector to select which channel I watch. Is this possible/available ? (Understood no HD)

Don't pay any attention to the "Product", I had to select something to get this question to post !

Sony Wega KF-50we620 how do I hook an antenna up to this older tv

The connection will depend on the stations in your area. Connect the antenna to the lowest RF (coaxial) connector labeled VHF/UHF if you want to watch only the low-power NTSC (analog) stations directly from your antenna. Use the Aux RF connector (upper-most RF connector) if you use the RF out from a digital (ATSC) to analog converter box and don't plan to watch the low-power stations in your area. (If you use the component video output of a converter box, ignore the RF connections.)

If you plan to watch the low-power stations and use a converter box, connect the antenna to the VHF/UHF connector. Connect a second coaxial cable to the To Converter RF connection and connect this to the Antenna In on the converter box. Take a third coaxial cable and connect this to the Antenna Out on the converter box and to the Aux RF cable input on the TV. Press the ANT button on the original remote to switch between the converter box set to channel 3 or 4 and the low-power stations. Remember to change channels with the converter box remote for the ATSC channels. Note: the converter box is used like a cable box with some scrambled channels.

Sony has the documentation for the KF-50WE620 on the product support page: . The link to the owner's manual is currently . See page 29 for the start of the antenna connections.

I hope this helps.

I'm recording a movie with your vcr, DVR620KU. Is there any way to watch another tv station at the same time? I cant' find any answer in the booklet. Thx.

The DVR620KU doesn't have a tuner; see for the specifications. What's the source for your recording? Does your TV have a tuner (ATSC)?

OTA signal with a TV with an ATSC tuner: If you have a digital (ATSC) to analog (NTSC) over-the-air converter box sending the NTSC signal to the DVR620, then the answer is maybe. Some models offer a pass-through feature when you daisy-chain the RF input. You will need to enable the feature in the setup menu of the converter box. Other models only pass-through the signal when the converter box is off. If you have a strong incoming signal, you can try using a splitter to feed both the TV and the converter box. (However, this will attenuate the signal to each tuner and even an amplifier/splitter combination may not allow enough digital signal for each tuner to resolve weak channels.)

For other set-top boxes (cable, satellite, etc.), it will depend on if you have multiple tuners available.

Please add a comment with more details about your A/V setup for more information.

How can i get local channels on my rca tru flat tv BD20TF10

The RCA BD20TF10 was manufactured before digital tuners (ATSC) were required. It only has an analog (NTSC) tuner so you will need a digital to analog converter box to watch most local channels. (These were the boxes available with the discount coupon as the ATSC broadcast transmitters were enabled.) Depending on the converter box model, use either the composite video input or use the RF antenna connection. If you use the RF output from the converter, you will need to set the TV to channel 3 or 4 (set the switch on the box to match). Then follow the directions for searching for channels with the converter box.

You may be able to find a low power analog station still broadcasting. However, you'd need to be close to the transmitter or have an antenna that is rated for a long-range signals. (Usually this will need to be an outdoor antenna with few obstructions between the transmitter and the antenna.) To scan for any available NTSC channels, make sure that the TV is set to TV mode. Then press Menu. Use the Up/Down arrows to highlight Channels and press OK. Select Auto Channel Search and press OK. You may need to confirm this step by highlighting the Start Search option and pressing OK. This will also let you add the appropriate channel for watching the signal from the converter box with the RF cable. The manual for this TV is available from Sears Parts Direct here: . The direct link to the manual is .

I hope this helps. I'm not sure if the Menu feature is available from the front panel buttons. You may need a remote with a matching code to do the channel scan.

I lost the remote to my RCA ATSC CONVERTER BOX. Is there a way to reset the box so it will rescan for channels.

How to get it to do a new channel scan

by the original remote thats my problem now all i really need is to at least scan

I don't know how a program it, since you change digital.

So far as I know the HLN series does not have an ATSC tuner, thus no over the air (OTA) reception. You can probably still get a $40 coupon for an OTA ATSC to NTSC converter. Note that will NOT get you high definition (HD). With Dish you can get HD receivers that do get OTA ATSC both HD and SD. With Direct, no OTA AFAIK. With cable you would need a QAM tuner, not in your TV AFAIK to get clear channels as required for locals. Otherwise cable needs a Set Top Box for digital and scrambled channels although the standard definition (SD) non-scrambled channels work with your NTSC tuner. Too bad there seem to be no ATSC to 5-cable RCA or HDMI HD converters except Dish. -Ken

Digital Channels??

Direct from the Hitachi website - "Integrated HDTV Tuners: Hitachi's new top-of-the-line XWX series features built-in ATSC terrestrial and cable HDTV tuners to provide integrated high resolution, high-definition signal decoding." You will need a seperate HDTV tuner if you do not have cable or satellite and want to watch off-air High Definition channels.

HDTV Ready

your ready, just connect the cable directly and the ntsc and atsc will auto search all channels and the dijital channels along with HD channels. but the paying channels like HBO and cinamax you will need a HD Box. to allow you to see them.
