No DTV or Reception with a box & Antenna?

We set up our RCA tv & digital tuner & antenna & we get NO reception or channels! What can I do? I so especially miss CBS & ABC!! We're unemployed & can't buy anything else! We're lost!! Anyone Else have these issues too? What can we do now?? We have slow dial up computer & a shared telephone line so we can't watch on my computer! Thank you for caring Kind replies!

  • You can't do anything, unless you pay for cable.

  • Did you get a convertor box? Some channels have already moved to digital.

  • You also need the coverter box, but here's the problem that we have....the antennas may not work at all if you are more than 25 miles from the tower for each tv station. We are apparently close enough for some of our stations, but NOT for others, so we don't get all of our stations.

  • Thank you ! We do have a new Converter Box! But its picking up Nothing! We have tried 3 different Antennas & Get Nothing! I feel sorry for others that are left in the Dark!!
