First of all, the change is actually goping from analog over-air broadcasting to a digital signal. Second, if you have cable or satelite, you don't need anything. The only time a converter is required is if you use rabbit ears or an external antenna. In your case, the TV DOES have a digital tuner so you DO NOT need a converter in either case.

I have an older Sharp Aquos TV - model # LC-32G4U. I am trying to connect a digital antenna but it doesn't work. Anyone know if I need a separate digital tuner for this TV? Or what else might be t


There is no difference between a "digital" and analog antenna. Either antenna will capture the signal. What you need is a digital converter box to convert the over air digital signal to the older analog type signal your TV needs. You connect the antenna to the digital converter box, and the digital converter box to the TV.
Several years ago, the US government forced peopel to buy digital converter boxes or newer TVs that could pick up the digital signal. Either get a digital converter box or a new TV.

How can I get analog channels to work with DTV without cable


Hello drandald,

Your tv is a digital tv, so you do NOT need a converter box. The tv has a built in digital tuner. But if you have any other older tv's then what you need is a converter box to convert analog signals to digital. I know there is one in Best Buy (not sure if there is one in your location) but they have one called access digital tv converter. They are about $50 (CAN). You would still need your antenna or however you get your analog signals. The antenna needs to be plugged into your converter box and then the box would need to be connected to your tv.

Do I need a digital converter box to recieve a digital broadcast with a Sharp LC-20SH4U TV?


Yes you need a digital converter box. Your model has an NTSC Analog Tuner. It doesn't have a Digital Tuner. This is why you need the converter box.


For example, many companies like Comcast or Time Warner or TCI etc used to broadcast Analog Signals through their wires. Now they have broadcasted only Digital Signals. This makes either your TV Obsolete as a Tuner or you have to get a digital converter so your Analog TV can receive the signal.

Depending on your service, it may be worth your while to get a TV with a digital Tuner.

Then again, it also depends on if you are connecting a box receiver to your TV. For example, if you have Directv or Dish, you would then use your standard Video/Audio or Composite Cables to transmit your signal OR your Out to TV Coaxial whichever works for your receiver. Some receivers have already built in converters . You should really consider all the factors to decide and determine it based on the type of service you have or want.

TV somehow switched to analog even though it is a new digital TV. How do I switch it back on the remote?


It most likely has the capability to tune analog stations in as well. To get to a digital station you should just have to punch the numbers in on the remote IE: 5-1 or 5.1

Dont have cable. i bought the analog converter, but read i don't


Digital Ready is not the same as having a digital tuner built in. Yours is probably the former and you do need a converter box: http://www.ezdigitaltv.com/HDTV_vs_HDTV-Ready.html

Does the Sharp Aquous LC-13E1U receive digital or analog broadcas


It looks like your TV is not HDTV capable, so you will need a box when the conversion takes place next year unless you have cable box or satellite TV receiver.
