Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hi, What's the model number off of the back of you TV?
Also what's the brand and model of the antenna you're connecting to it?
Thanks. Looking up that model now.
Offhand do you have the power adapter plugged in correctly on the splitter (please observe cable IN and OUT connections)?
Also, are you running a Channel Scan after selecting AIR?
Have you checked the antenna locator to see how many stations you should be getting in?
Okay, I just checked the specs on this TV, and it does not have a current digital TV antenna tuner- it uses the old style VHF/UHF style so will not work with any current digital broadcasts.
You're going to need a DTV converter with this one connected between the antenna and the TV's AV or coaxial jacks. You can get one of these for around $55 at Radio Shack, Best By or Wal Mart, or at the link below:
You then use the software on the converter box to run the channel scan and set the TV to the correct AV Input setting to view.
If you need further assistance let me know. Please do not forget to click the 5 STAR RATING, at the top of the page for my efforts. It is my livelihood and you can follow up at any time if needed.
You're welcome. Absolutely it will work- the DTV converter box is the same tuner as your sets that are working. It simply connects to the TV as an AV device- select the Input and display the content the tuner is sending. This was the proposed solution when OTA signals changed to Digital over 10 years ago- so it is the correct protocol to solve the problem.
