It seems that maybe the tv is nothing but a monitor but the books I have dont say a thing. If you believe it we did try to read the instructions (the previous owners included all manuals Yea) but of course they didn't help
Pictures please. Include specs on what model of Concertone and TV would be VERY helpful in helping you.

Concertone

Thanks Lou. Our trailer is at a storage unit right now. Too muddy at home to park it there. As soon as we get there I will take some pictures and get model number. Really appreciate the help.

I have the 2008 rockwood 8313 with 3 tvs. None are digital. each needs a converter. I have mine installed and now I get good tv locals on antenna and the rest on direct tv. You do not need a converter for direct or dish network.

We kinda figured it wasn't digital but wasn't sure. Now our next problem is knowing how to hook up the converter. In a cabinet we have plug that says antenna and then a whole bunch of plug ins. I think they say video in/out (I sure dont sound like I know what I'm talking about cause I don't)and other things. They look like the plugs that are usually on a tv but these happen to be in a cabinet. Sorry about not being able to explain this better, just a female that knows nothing about this stuff trying to figure it out. I will try to get to the trailer and see if I can get a picture of everything if no one knows what I'm talking about cause I'm not sure I do . Sometimes I think it would have been easier to stay in the tent

I consulted with bob fields (concertone rep) and with his asistance I removed the concertone head and removed the antenna in wire. With an extension coax and a hole drilled in the cabinet the antenna in wire goes to the converter in and converter out goes back to the concertone antenna in connection. On the other tv's just antenna to converter and converter out to tv. After hook ups the concertone goes on tv3 and the channels are changed using the converter remote. If I can be of further help you can private msg me.

Those plugs are inputs to the Concertone Sound System, not the TV.



The plugs on the left are game inputs using the video IN function of the Concertone.

I am talking about the TV itself. There should be a tuner in there that is hooked up to the coax from the antenna plate. The gray wire in the lower photo. That coax will get hooked to the digital to analog converter and the yellow RCA plug (and the RED/WHITE stereo) from the converter would get plugged into the wall plate inside your cabinet. You will forever more use the converter to change the channels and not the TV. That will just be a "monitor" to show the picture.
