I have a 3 year old Toshiba hdtv and I am trying to hook the box up to my tv but cant get it to work can you help? I have an indoor hdtv antenna hook both up but it does'nt show any channels or it is not reconizing channels. Can you help me?
 
Makes and model numbers would be helpful.
If your TV has an antenna hookup and a built in ATSC digital tuner you should connect the antenna directly to the TV. Select over the air and run a channel scan. Digital TVs won't tune in any channel that has not be found in the scan.
If your TV doesn't have a built in tuner did you get a box with HDMI output? If you did then connect the antenna to it and connect the tuner to the one of the HDMI inputs. Do the setup on the box and run a scan.
You may need to reorient the antenna to get channels. Sometimes you need a different antenna. HD channels either work or they don't. Not like analog broadcast TV that got "snowy" when the signal was low.
If the box you got doesn't have HDMI output then you got the wrong box. It is made for non HD TVs to be able to receive digital broadcasts. You can connect it to the TV but won't get HD so it won't look good.
