How do I connect my HD Set Top Box to my TV?
« on: 13/09/2009 18:36:57 »
Hi,

I really really need some help here. I have an old analogue tv hooked up to an outdoor antenna which works great and donít 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

I may be wrong here (not for the first time!) but I think you may be having trouble because you have an HD set top box hooked up to a non HD TV.

I think you should have got a plain & simple non HD set top box.

I agree with Mr Don....though, I did hold back because I was not too sure if in the States they have ALL channels in HD...if so, then I accept that one can obtain an HD only set top box that will not play on a non HD TV. It's like trying to get a Blu Ray disc to play in a DVD player.
