Connecting TV to cable service for HDTV

Is a converter or adapter required for connecting this device to a cable provider (WOW) for the reception of HDTV. Can the required adapter be purchased or should it be leased from the cable provider?

    That's one thing I'm trying to determine. The back of the projection TV has a set of seven RCA connectors grouped as "DTV", but the owner's manual in Appendex B lists a series of voltage levels for those inputs suggesting they analog inputs. There is also a "MonitorLink/DVI" connector on the back with a notation in the Op Manual that "The DVI-HDTV input terminal is compliant with the EIA-861 standard and is not intended for use with personal computers" The connector does not look like the HDMI connector.

Normally you need a converter box for hd because normal stations are broadcasted in hd.....its not common enough for them to do it...and you probably have to buy a package with your cable company for the hd channels. another your tv hd ready?

Will this tv work with an antenna or does it need a converter box?

All LCD tv's made in the last 10 years support digital tv out of the box and do not need a converter box. However if you want to pick up local stations over the air, you may need an external antenna. Otherwise if you have cable tv or other services, you can connect your service to your tv directly.
You may also want to call your service provider (if applicable) if you have issues connecting it to your tv.

Will i need a converter box for this tv?

If you want to receive off-the-air broadcasts (i.e., you have no cable satellite system), then yes, you'll need a digital tuning adapter. This set has only an analog tuner.

If you are on a cable system, you might not need a converter box, but it depends on your cable provider. Some systems still offer basic cable service without a box, and you can see what channels you'll pick up with the TV set for "cable" tuning. Other systems require a digital converter box or "digital transport adapter" for any reception. You'll need to check with your cable provider to find out.

I have power to my W.D. but it will not connect to my computers

Check the power cable The My Book and Elements desktop devices use a power adapter to operate the drive and hardware. Portable devices rely on the data cable for power and data.
  • Check the power cables are well seated in the external drive (applies only to Desktop external drives), and also the AC socket the power adapter is connected
  • Connect the device directly to the computer. For troubleshooting it's best to ensure the data cable is connected directly to the PC or laptop. Do not connect the device through a non-powered USB hub. Similarly make sure the power adapter is connected directly to a wall outlet, to rule out a degraded surge protector or power strip
  • If this is a My Passport or Elements Portable drive, ensure the data cable is connected securely to the drive, and the computer's USB port. For troubleshooting only, do not connect via a USB hub, to rule out power related concerns
  • My Passport and WD Elements Portable devices may benefit using a Power Booster Cable to use two USB ports, in order to provide extra power to the device
  • Use a USB hub with its own power adapter. These units provide 5V, and up to 1000mA to each USB port; and may be a good alternative, if a Power Booster Cable is not available
  • Test with another power adapter. Take note of the input requirements at the power port of the desktop device for voltage and amperage. Be sure the output of the power adapter does not provide voltage higher than the device's input requirements. Higher amperage will not harm a device, but higher voltage will destroy a device

Check the data cable Data cables can degrade over time from bending and flexing. The connectors can get bent, or the internal pins may corrode from moisture or other contaminates.
  • Use a different data port
  • Use a different data cable
  • Use a different computer, if possible

Hi there,

Well you can follow the below steps -
1. Inspect the antenna for any signs of damage. Identify and examine the power adapter cord and the coaxial antenna cable for any rips tears or other defects.
2. Plug the adapter into the antenna's power adapter socket. It will be labeled "12V DC/Adapter". If you are using an antenna that does not require power, such as rabbit ears, you may skip this step.
3. Next connect the antenna cable to the television using the TV's "Antenna In/75 Ohm" input jack. Make sure the antenna connector is twisted tightly into place. Place the antenna on a sturdy surface such as the top of an entertainment center. If you have an older analog TV that is a non high definition ready/capable display and are using a digital to analog converter box, generally, the antenna will plug into the input of the converter and the output of the converter will plug into the antenna input of your TV. 
4. Plug the antenna's power supply into a 120V AC wall outlet. This will turn the antenna on. If you are using the "rabbit ears" style antenna, make sure that the each section of the antenna is fully extended. This will give you the best reception.
5. Turn on the TV and check for digital reception. You will know that you are receiving digital signals because the picture will be clear and free of any analog "snow" or other artifacts. Digital TV channels have DVD quality picture and sound.

Does the Sylvania 22 HDTV require a special cable when connecting to my cable service. I do not have HD cable service.

Not necessarily. You can use the normal connecting cable but you may not get HDTV picture. Better is to connect through HDMI cable where you can view HD pitures on the channels transmitting HD programmes
