There is no such thing as a digital or HD antenna, that is a marketing term. The only thing you have to decide is if you want a passive or amplified antenna. I recommend the amplified versions, as they do pull in a stronger signal.

I have my converter attached to my previously existing analog antenna. It sits at the top of a 40-ft tower next to my house. This has worked fine for me.

NO, I DON'T THINK SO. IF YOU HAVE CABLE YOU WILL NEED TO GET THE SERVICE PROVIDERS CABLE BOX AND THIS DOES ALL THE CONVERTING SO YOU CAN USE AN ANALOG TV MONITOR AND THE SYSTEM WILL PRODUCE THE SIGNALS NECESSARY TO USE THE TV.

Consult your user manual. I beleive if it less than 5 years old you do not need this box, but you do need an antenna. Walmart has antennas, I recommend an outdoor or attic antenna, not rabbit ears (they may work, but not as good)

Enjoy your free HDtv!

Most TV's manufactured today have a digital tuner built-in. They are considered "Digital Ready"; they do not require a separate tuner for digital signals. TV's made two or more years ago didn't have digital tuners; they require this product or a product like it or a cable box or satellite tuner. If you use cable or satellite, you don't need this product. They made LCD, plasma, and tube (CRT) TV's with or without digital tuners, it depends on your model's requirements.

You shouldn't require the converter unit if you have a cable box. The cable box converts the signal automatically and acts as the tuner for the TV. You might have to contact your cable provider to make sure you have the correct unit for your TV. If you have a digital TV, you don't need a cable box.

NO, YOU WILL NEED TO USE THE TYPE OF BOX THAT COMCAST HAS AVAILABLE EITHER AS A MONTHLY RENTAL OR I THINK YOU CAN PURCHASE ONE FROM THEM. OTHER THAN THAT YOU'LL HAVE TO DO SOME RESEARCH AND FIND OUT WHERE YOU CAN FIND A BOX WHICH IS COMPATIBLE WITH COMCAST'S SYSTEM.

You won't need a converter if you have a cable box or a satellite receiver. If you don't have a cable box, contact your cable company. They might charge you rent for it.

CAN I RECORD SHOWS WITH A DIGITAL TV CONVERTER & A DVD RECORDER?

WILL I ALSO NEED RABBIT EARS?

YES, YOU CAN RECORD TV SHOWS THAT ARE CONVERTED USING THE DIGITAL TV CONVERTER AS LONG AS YOUR DVD HAS THE RECORDING CAPABILITY. THE CONVERTER CONVERTS THE DIGITAL SIGNALS TO AN ENHANCED ANALOG SIGNAL SO YOUR ANALOG TV WILL WORK SO THE SIGNAL GOING TO THE DVD PLAYER WILL BE AN ANALOG SIGNAL JUST AS BEFORE. DEPENDING ON HOW OLD THE DVD RECORDER IS IT MAY HAVE THE CONVERTER BUILT INTO IT TO WORK ON DIGITAL OR ANALOG SIGNALS SO IT WOULD NOT MATTER. YOU WILL NEED AN EXTERNAL ANTENNA OF SOME KIND. WHATEVER YOU GET MAKE SURE IT HAS AN ENHANCED ELECTRICAL BOOSTER BUILT INTO IT WHICH WILL BE PLUGGED INTO AN ELECTRICAL OUTLET. THIS WILL WORK WELL TO PICK UP SIGNALS THAT ARE WEAK OR STATIONS ARE FAR AWAY FROM YOU. G.E. MAKES SEVERAL TYPES.

Yes, but some DVD recorders have a filter that blocks recording of some shows, i.e. Major League Baseball games and some movies. It will shut down the record function while that program is tuned in.

You will need some sort of antenna with this converter. Plain rabbit ears will not work; they're designed for VHF. Digital is broadcast on UHF. You'll need a digital TV antenna, whether it's indoor or outdoor.
