You can receive the signals over Fios the same as cable.

Can not tune tv since change over


The KV-32FS100 only has an analog tuner (NTSC). Unless there is a low-power analog station still broadcasting in your area, you will not be able to watch OTA stations. (I've got one in my area that barely comes in.) If your local cable still sends an analog signal, you won't need a set top box to watch that subscribed service.

Otherwise, you need a set top box to watch TV. A digital to analog converter (the boxes that were available with the government coupon before the switch over) will give you over the air stations. The basic models only provide SD output; there are a few HD models available. Otherwise, you can use a satellite reciever, cable box (for digital cable service), or something like the Boxee or Sling with tuner. (There are a few different models of the Boxee; one added a tuner with a USB dongle. The newest model of the Boxee has the ATSC tuner built in.)

Note: OTA digital signal quality is either a strong enough signal for the tuner or no signal will be present. You need to point the antenna in the correct direction to receive the signal from your local transmitters. The type of antenna and its placement will also change the number of watchable channels. You can use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to get more information. Antennaweb assumes an outdoor antenna but gives a conservative list of stations. If the signal is split to several devices, you may need an amplifier to get a watchable signal. (Sometimes amplifiers fail and you won't receive any stations, so test without the splitter or amplifier by using a direct cable to one TV.)

I hope this helps.

I have a curtis Mathis flat screan television and am trying to program my verizon fios remote control to operate the television as well as the fios box. I tried every code that is listed in the verizon...


Since I can't find anything about your set except the fact that it's an older set I suspect that the trouble lies in the fact that Fios won't control a set this old. I do believe this one has an analog tuner which is now obsolete.

It is digital (HD), I don't need converter?


If your set is labeled as "HD ready" then it will accept HD signals from, for example, an external HD tuner or other source. The set can be HD Ready, as is my Samsung TV, but my set has only the older NTSC type tuner. I therefore use a digital stream HD tuner which works great to receive over the air signals. Also digital does not mean a set is HD. There are sets that are standard definition digital sets that can receive digital signals, but do not produce HD. If you are using cable, in most cases, you can continue receiving your cable as usual.

Can the tuner be upgraded to get digital signals?


There is no way to directly change the internal tuner to receive digital/HD signals. I would simply purchase an external tuner unit, but be sure to get one that has at least component signal outputs and is HD. You want to be able view HD & not just digital. One of the small tuner boxes would get digital, but not HD. I personally have a Digital Stream tuner with a set I own and have been very pleased with it. The tuner has many extra features and also has an NTSC output I use for recording with a regular vcr. Shop for an HD tuner unit. You will be impressed by the kind of performance you will get from this set.

Does the model Polaroid TTM-2401 TV have a digital tuner?


Your TV will need a HD converter because it doesn't have a digital tuner but only if you are receiving over the air signals. If you have a cable box or satellite receiver, then you do not need the converter HD box.

Does my tv have a digital tuner (RCA Model E13320, 2/2001)?


The digital tuner has nothing to do with the new signal you will be receiving in February of next year. The new video signal is a digital signal. The old video signal is analog. Your television receives the analog signal and converts it to what you see on television. You need a converter box to convert the new digital signal back to an analog signal your television can convert.

Yes, you will need the converter box in order to view the digital channels if you are receiving off the air signals but if you have cable or satellite TV, you might not needed. You can click here to know the specs of your TV, it has an analog tuner and not a digital.

Need converter box


Not if you have cable TV, satellite TV, or FIOS. If so, a converter won't do anything for you. Not needed.

If, however, you only use a regular TV antenna or rabbit ears, you will need a converter box as this model TV only has an NTSC analog tuner built in.
