The term digital in this case is the mechanism used to tune in stations. Rather than making adjustments using a front dial to fine tune the stations, there are digital circuits that will lock in the station. The "digital" stations you are referring to now are the over-air digital broadcasts what use a different method for transfering the signals over the air. These stations now broadcast a digital stream of information rather than an analogue TV signal. If you are using an antenna for receiving these over-air broadcasts, you will require a converter.

Just got digital service, can't tune the stations


Check and make sure that your TV has compatibility tuner [analogue / Digital] provided inside. If not, you have to buy a digital to analogue converter to receive digital transmission. Refer the device user manual for details. If f the tuner is digital/analogue compatible; and you can't receive digital channels, it is faulty. The tuner have to be replaced. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

TV won't recognize channels. Help


Without knowing where you are in the world let me ask
are you trying to tune analogue or digital stations
Here in australia analogue tv has been discontinued and all transmissions are in digital.
your tv even though it says HDready does not have a digital tuner
so if you are scanning for digital you won't have any luck

If i am correct the only option will be a digital set top box or a newer model tv..

Will my TV receive digital signals without an external digital converter?


Hi, John.
No your tv is an older standard definition tv with an NTSC tuner..that was the old type tuner for analog stations.
You will need to get an ATSC digital tuner in order to tune in digital broadcasts.

Luckily, you don't have to spend hundreds to get one.
WalMart and several other stores carry inexpensive digital tuner converters that are in the $30-$40 range.

I hope this helps you out on getting stations picked up, as without the converter, your tv would only be good for hooking up a dvd player to it, or for video games.

Good luck tio you, and have a good day.

My Sony Bravia television froze on a digital picture today and now when I change channels there is no picture and no sound. I tried to do a digital scan and it picked up no digital signals,. The analogue...


Hi,

Your TV has a dual tuner - one for analogue and one for digital although they are contained on the same tuner board. It's possible that the digital tuner has failed, in which case the tuner board will most likely need to be replaced, but often this problem can be resolved with a "hard" reset. Turn the TV off and unplug it. Remove all the cables from the back, leave it for at least 5 minutes and then re-connect only the cable from the tuner source. i.e aerial/antenna. Make sure you are in Digital TV mode (DTV), then run the channel scan again.

If it works turn the TV off, re-connect all of your other devices and you should be able to resume using the TV as normal.

If this doesn't work, you may need to have the digital tuner replaced. The analogue and digital channel feeds are from the same source. As the analogue channels are working there is no obvious fault with the feed or cables.

Please try this first and then post back for further assistance if needed.

I have a Pioneer DVR5100H which was set up to record Analogue programs - can I change the set up to accept digital programs. I have tried auto setup but it doesn't pick up any programs?


Hi,

You can't record digital programmes with this recorder unless it is connected to a digital tuner, e.g. a Freeview box or Sky digibox. This recorder has a built in analogue tuner which allows it to record analogue transmissions. Recorders which can record digital transmissions have a built-in digital tuner and usually have a DVB logo (actually looks more like DV3) on the front.

If you want to record digital programmes using this recorder, you need to connect it to a Freeview or Sky digibox, preferably with a scart cable. It is not sufficient to connect it to a TV with a digital tuner or built in Freeview as the player does NOT record directly from the TV, it must be connected directly to the transmission source. A basic stand-alone digital tuner (Freeview box) can be bought for as little as £10-15.
