Go from antenna to converter to TV

The antenna plugs into the converter input. The converter out plugs into the TV. Use the converter's remote for channel selection and put the TV on channel 3 or 4 per the converter's instructions. It's pretty simple.

The above link shows basic connection. Hopefully, you have a help guide or manual with your converter box. These all do the same job and connect the same way. However, you will need to check any remote control setup as to any changes or setting required. If for some reason, no manual is with the converter box, look online via google and find it, more than likely available and print its contents or review it.
