RVs and Digital TV

We have been receiving a lot of e-mail with questions about TVs in  RVs, trailers, motorhomes and boats that won't work after the Digital Transition on February 17, 2009. 

We have a new page with information about RVs and Digital TV . There is a company called  RVDigitalTV.com  that can upgrade your RV's built-in Analog TV set to a Digital Widescreen LCD flat panel TV so you will be able to continue to receive free over the air television next year.

We also have an RVs and Converter Box  page with instructions for connecting a 12-volt converter box in your RV or boat with a 12-volt power system if you want to keep your analog TV set and use a converter box.  Our information was referenced by KEYE TV 42 out of Austin, TX in their story Digital TV in a battery-operated world and their corresponding  video.

Twin Lead Antennas

If you have an older television with a "twin lead" antenna connection (also called 300 ohm or screw terminal), you will need additional components not supplied with the converter box. To adapt a converter box for this type of connection, please check our Converter Box Adapter page.
