running digital converter box on digital TV

I have a friend (no, not me) who when she stopped using her digital TV on a cable service provider, purchased a digital to analog converter box and routed the over-the-air digital antenna signals thru the digital converter box to the DIGITAL TV.

The TV works with that setup BUT I told her that she does not need the converter box because the TV is digital and no signal conversion needs to take place. However, when we took the converter box off of the setup, we can not get the TV to display any channels after doing a channel scan with input set to TV not cable.

I am thinking that the converter box use has changed some of the factory defaults, which is why we can not know get the TV to work without the converter. Am still if the process of trying to get everything set back to factory defaults.

But my question is, is it possible that her using a digital converter box on a digital TV has damaged the software or hardware components of the TV ?

P.S. - The TV is a Toshiba model 27HL85 manufacturer in 2005. I don't have the brand or model of the antenna or remote being used with me right at this moment.
