It would really help to know what brand of converter (set top box) you are installing but I can provide some general information. Be sure to connect everything before applying power. On the rear of the box, you have two types of connectors. If your RCA TV is old, you can connect a cable from the ANTENNA OUT F connector to the antenna F connector on the rear of the TV. Connect an antenna to the ANTENNA IN F connector on the rear of the box. Set the box to send output to channel 3 or 4, whichever is not used in your area. Apply power to the TV and the box and tune the TV to the channel (3 or 4) you selected on the box. If your RCA TV is new enough to have inputs for left and right audio and video, you can connect a 3-conductor RCA cable between the appropriate outputs of the box and the corresponding inputs on your TV. The picture quality will be better the second way. Once you are up and running you can use the channel search feature of the remote for the box to locate HD channels
