Are 2 tuners needed for HDTV

I am looking for a 46" LCD HDTV. I was told to get one with 2 tuners so you don't need one from the cable company. Is this true.

No, You need 2 tuners for PIP (Picture-in-picture). Perhaps the confusion is that some HD TV's do not include tuners at all. This is fine if you are going to be getting a cable or satellite box for satellite or digital TV. But it's best to cover your bases and make sure the TV has a built-in tuner. 2 tuners are not needed and not all that common.

What does the digital tuner look like in a Sony bravia 4600


could be, but also the internal cabling. Or the power the tuner needs, to normal work. My advice would be, let a tech have a look and ask them what it will cost you to solve the problem, before you invite one.

Westinghouse tv turner issue


If the plays normal on other inputs then the tuner itself would be suspect. If you cant get a normal picture through any of the inputs then I would suspect the main board as needing replacement.

Hi, You have guessed it right. (tuner fault) I would suggest you can get a set top box, they have tuners built in. Just set your TV on ch 3 or 4 and you can run from the box. You can get them from your cable company or dish network. Good luck.

If the HDMI cable was the only connection, then the high voltage pulse would have had to go through one or more of the video wires in the cable, through the video board, and back out the HDMI cable shielding. What troubles me is you should see the unit come up to standby and refuse to power on. That suggests there was something else connected besides the HDMI cable or the base made a decent ground. At least the panel is worth $150 or so (it is highly unlikely it was damaged).

I have Samsung A550 46 LCD HDTV, and Anteina IN Broken


Yes it can be fixed if the tuner board was not damaged. Get an RF modulator, you can pick them up at walmart, and use your RCA inputs in the back. All you do is input your main tv cable into the RF mod cable in, then connect to the out of it with your RCA cables and then into the RCA connect in, into the back of your tv. Or, like you said, you can input your main tv cable into your vcr/dvd then come out of that with the RCA cables, and again into the RCA cable in on your tv. This way you have to syncronize your channels after you do this to get the picture. You know, vcr on channel 3 while your tv is set to input 1 or whatever needs to be done.
