Hi,

I really really need some help here. I have an old analogue tv hooked up to an outdoor antenna which works great and dont want to have to go out and buy a new hd tv just to get the extra channels.
I was advised that all I needed to o was to buy a hd digital set top box and I would be able to access the extra channels without the hd picture quality, however for whatever reason I cannot get the set top box to work at all on my tv.

Do I need something else to get the new channels...Please can someone help me out here..am so confused!...Thanks

If you use the S-video connector on the back of the set top box it should do what you want. Don't use the "component" video connectors (red, blue, and green motorola-style connectors). If your TV set doesn't have an s-video input, then there might be a TV modulator in your set top box where you could just hook connect your TVs antenna input and tune it to channel 3 or 4 and use the set top box to change channels.
