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.

Yes. This unit is designed to work with a digital antenna to pick up over air digital TV signals and convert them for an older (analog) 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.

IF YOU HAVE A DIGITAL TV YOU DON'T NEED A CONVERTER BOX. GET A ELECTRICAL BOOSTED SET OF RABBIT EARS AND ALL SHOULD WORK JUST FINE. YOU'LL GET WHATEVER LOCAL CHANNELS ARE AVAILABLE TO YOU.

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.

I see no reason why it couldn't be used with a 12 volt tv. You do need to have a 110 volt outlet available for the power supply to the tuner.

You can get an adapter that has a emitter that you place over the sensor, but it would cost more than the converter. This unit doesn't have that feature. I would shop around for a box that has that function built in.

It depends on how close you are to the transmitter(s) and how long a UHF range of your antenna. A rule of thumb is your UHF range is usually half the VHF range.

I get 3 local channels out of the five that are available, though I may have a signal strength issue with the antenna connection in this particular room of my home.
