What do I need to receive an analog tv signal over the air? I was told an "analog converter" installed in line of my coaxial cable from my ota antenna. I live in the mountains and I'm only 1 1/2 miles from the analog tv transmitter. I bought a directional ota antenna but no signal. Thanks in advance!

depends on the tv tuner, but you shouldn't need anything inbetween the aerial and the tv tuner if it's capable of receiving analogue signals.

 

can i ask what country you're in because a lot of countries no longer broadcast using the analogue signal and only broadcast a digital signal. the uk for example (where i live.) only broadcast digital signals now since about 2012.

 

if you have an analogue only tv/tuner and your country only broadcasts a digital signal then you will need to add a digital box between the tv and aerial to receive those signals.

 

some links with more info about analogue and digital tv broadcast.
