Do I have a ATSC tuner in my 2002 Quasar 27" TV?

I can not find it in the owners manual. I don't know if it is ATSC or NTSC. I don't see either one in the owners manual.

NTSC is the (analog) standard passing into history in Feb. '09 and ATSC is the new digital standard being used afterward for over-the-air (reception by antenna) broadcasts. This changeover affects only the broadcast channels and if you have cable or satellite reception the changeover will happen whenever they find they can't charge their captive audience such a high premium for HD.  
I found no evidence that your set is ATSC ready so if you are receiving your signal by antenna, you need to scurry about and buy a converter for your set. Make sure the one you buy is on the list of 'approved' models to which you can apply the $40 coupon(s).

I have a sharp LC-37G4U and can not get it to load over air channels. this a digital tv but the only way they would load is with a converter. how can I download over the air channels on the tv


Unfortunately, the Sharp Aquos LC-37G4U TV is an HDTV-ready monitor. It does not have an ATSC (digital OTA) tuner. The A/V Center box (TU-GA1U-S) that came with the TV has two NTSC tuners. You'll need the over-the-air ATSC to NTSC (analog) converter box or a stand-alone ATSC tuner DVR set-top box to get most OTA channels. There are only low power NTSC tuners that continue to broadcast; you will only receive those stations if you are close to their transmitters.

Crutchfield has a nice list of the specifications for the TV here: http://www.crutchfield.com/S-4LS7pNsldXK/p_70037G4U/Sharp-LC-37G4U.html . The manual has the full specifications for the TV on page 100. Crutchfield has the manual here: http://pdf.crutchfieldonline.com/ImageBank/v20040615154800/Manuals/700/70032G4U.PDF .

I wish that I had better news for you.

How do I get free local TV over-the-air stations?


The Quasar VV-2002 only has an NTSC (analog tuner). Very few stations with NTSC transmitters are still broadcasting. Only low-power stations were allowed to continue broadcasting an analog signal. Unless you are very close to one of the transmitters, your TV will not tune in the station.

You'll need to connect the TV to a digital-to-analog over the air converter box. (The low-end ones that were free or cheap with the government coupon are harder to find; a few models are still available.) These convert the ATSC (digital) signal to NTSC. Then use an appropriate antenna and follow the instructions to tune in the available OTA signals. Send these to the TV either on the RF or composite Line-in. Set the TV to the appropriate input and use the converter box to change channels.

I hope this helps.

(20" TVs weren't required to have an ATSC tuner until 2007. Since there are reviews for the VV-2002 from 2004, it obviously is an older set.)

Is the Rca true flat digital


I'd need the model number to tell if the RCA TV has a digital (ATSC) or analog (NTSC) tuner. The mandate for inclusion of the ATSC tuner depended on the size of the TV and the year of manufacture. Small (<25" diagonal) TVs didn't need to have an ATSC tuner when they were built until 2007. The older TVs could still be sold with a "cable-ready" or similar NTSC only label. (The 32"+ TVs had to have the ATSC tuners in 2005 and the mid-size TVs had to have the digital tuners in 2006.)

For example the 27F530T was manufactured in 2003 and only has a NTSC tuner. However, the 20F424T was manufactured in 2008 and does have an ATSC tuner.

I hope this helps.

How can i tell if my tv is digital


The iLo IWT3206 TV provides two built-in -- or integrated -- TV tuners: a National Television System Committee (NTSC) tuner and an Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) tuner.
While the NTSC tuner allows iLo IWT3206-viewers to receive analog, free-to-air TV broadcasts, the ATSC tuner allows viewers to receive digital TV broadcasts via a cable or satellite provider.
The benefit of having an integrated ATSC tuner is that it negates the need for a separate cable box or satellite receiver, which can take up space.

I have a Jensen TV, Model Number TS2050J. I need to know if it has a QAM tuner built in.


Hi.
No, your tv is an older model sdtv with an analog only NTSC tuner.

Newer model have an ATSC/Qam digital tuner, but not your model.

This means that if you want to watch tv, you'll have to get a converter box. It will have the ATSC/QAM tuner i it, and it converts the signal into lower definition NTSC, and then sends it to the tv through either coax cable, or rca cables.
Once in a great while you might even find one that has s-video output, but those usually are expensive.

I hope this helps you out.

Will my handheld tv work after feb


Hello lavillavicto,

Look at you owners manual if the tuner format is ATSC (digital standard) then it's ok, if it is NTSC (analog standard) then it will not work. My experience tells me that the answer to your question is no, because most of these units were made with NTSC tuners. I know this is not what you want to hear but it is the truth.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

I don't know if my TV's digital tuner will work when they switch over to digital broadcasting. My TV does have one but during a test it didn't work


The Sharp LC-19SB25U 19 in. HDTV LCD TV has both a NTSC and an ATSC tuner.

The NTSC tuner will stop working in Feb. 2009 but the included ATSC tuner is what you need for after the digital transition.

If this is not the model number or manufacturer of your TV, then please post them.

Based on the features described by JVC and the technical details listed on Amazon.com the answer is no, no digital ATSC tuner, just NTSC analog.

So yes, she'll need a converter box for the ATSC over the air signals.
