A cable converter box will not work that's why when high def cable came into effect people traded their boxes into the cable company but you can go to Walmart and look at the antenna screw into the cable they run anywhere from $25 to a hundred my ex-wife got one at dirt cheap is $75 1 for 25 bucks gave her six channels

SOURCE: signal issues with my Insignia DTV converter box

As far as the antenna goes..NO. It is still an RF signal. The antenna just needs to be good for the frequency range of the stations you are receiving. The station numbers and frequency don't necessarily match like they use to. They are all over the place now.

SOURCE: TIVO DVR : Won't Change Channels

Set up your infrared blasters connected from your IR port on the Tivo and by placing the two lead lights in front of your cable box so it (the cable box) can read the signal.  Then go to Channel settings accessed through Tivo Central and follow the questions. It will ask you to change channels until the remote is working correctly.  This all worked on a different "input" on my Mitsubishi TV (it has multiple inputs.  I have the cable input on a different "input" to make it work.  Hope this helps.  Call TIVO tech assistance because they are the ones who talked me through this.

SOURCE: Unable to get consistent reception on ABC (channel 7 NY)

The antenna may be the problem in your case but I was getting New York 7 digital with a strong signal before the transition on June 12th and now I do not get any signal. I use a rather large VHF /UHF roof antenna mounted in my attic. The compass heading for NBC NY 4.1 is 169 deg and 18 mile from my location according to antennaweb.org. I get this channel with a strong signal. Comparably ABC NY 7.1 is 170 deg and 18.7 miles from my location and I do not get a signal. Perhaps ABC NY is having some problem with the transition. It does not make sense assuming the information of antennaweb.org is correct. BTW if and outdoor or attic mounted antenna is not an option I would recommend the following antenna. I used this for my friends? setup when she was having problems with rabbit ears. It also got some pretty high user reviews and is not expensive. It is for both indoor and outdoor applications. Good Luck! http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=109&cp_id=10901&cs_id=1090102&p_id=4730&seq=1&format=2

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.

My Zenith VCR is not working with the digital converter box


When the VCR is "off" the converter signal should go right through the box, which you say it does. Then, when you turn the VCR "on" the picture disappears. That, so far, how it should be. To get your picture back while the VCR is "on" you must set the VCR to "receive" channel 3, and use your new converter box to change channels...accordianman

Digital TV Signal


Not if you cable TV, DirecTV, Dish network, or FIOS. The converters are not usable with those services.

If you use a regular TV antenna or rabbit ears, then, yes, you will need a DTV converter box. If so, I'd suggest getting one well before next February. Why? 'Cause the pictures are better, and you'll have access to "virtual channels", where broadcasters send more than one program on channels like 4.1, 4.2, etc. Also, if you have poor reception, you may need a better antenna to see the DTV signals. Better to know that before DTV is all that is being broadcast over the airwaves.
