Question

We have an analog TV in our guest room. We have Verizon FIOS and a cable hook-up in that room. I don't want to pay an extra $5.00 per mo. for a TV

that is just used occasionally. Will we be able to connect the cable hook-up to this converter box and pick up basic cable stations?

The numbers vary depending on how many channels are broadcast in your area. It has been my experience that this unit will not work in areas with more than 128 broadcast channels.

Your location and terrain and the type of antenna will determine what the digital box can receive. Do a web search for which digital TV antenna do I need. Several sites will guide you through the process.

It will receive all of the channels in your area. Those channels are specific to your location and most of the channels have sub-channels and the reception will depend on your location and the signal strength which requires one of several types of antennas. Do a web search for digital TV antennas, which antenna do I need. Several sites will guide you through the process to determine if you need a rabbit ear type antenna or a larger unit mounted in the attic or on the roof or a pole.

Yes it will. But, if you have more than 128 channels available in your area you would be better off with another manufacturer. I purchased no less than 6 of these units yesterday and returned all of them. Not one of these units would complete the initial channel scan! They all froze at 129 channels.

Input is standard VHF/UHF antenna cable with pass thru for older tv sets that only have an antenna input. It also has RCA outputs for sets that can accommodate those. This unit has no composite, nor digital coax capabilities.

HDTV is digital. You don't need a converer.

answer 2
Yes it will. But it will be redundant as most HDTVs don't require a digital to analog converter. You should be able to receive digital signals via antenna and your HDTV will do the digital decoding. These converters are for older televisions that do not have digital capabilities.

There is no composite output on this unit. But it does have RCA output which can easily be fed to your VCR's RCA connections allowing you to record programs. Your VCR would then feed your TV with thru put.

Before I got an antenna, I got several channels just using the converter box. (I live near Houston so there are many channels available.) However, now I get many more channels using a very cheap antenna (old style rabbit ears) connected to the converter box. You might just need a 15-20 dollar antenna or you could get an old one from your family or friends. Don't worry about whether the antenna says it's digital or HD. Some antennas just say they're digital or HD to make it sound like it's a better antenna than it really is. A really good website for finding out what channels you should receive in your area is called antennaweb.org. Good luck!
