    I went to the info page recommended and under key features it says

    "EDTV-Ready Television", but under display capabilities it says "

    EDTV-Ready - Requires separate receiver to view EDTV signals."

    Does that mean it just needs an antenna (that I am using now) or a converter box.

    Sorry for the questions but I am an old natural blond and get confused easily. LOL

    Thanks for the help

    You will need a receiver so that you can view digitalized programming. You can get one when you subscribe to dishnetwork or direct tv. But over the air antenna will work as well with it.

    Hope this helps

What cable do I need connect my Emerson EWL20D6 to my laptop?

This TV can't understand a laptop signal directly (for most laptops - there are some computers that have a TV out option). The EWL20D6 has S-video, component and composite video inputs. Your best picture will be to get a VGA (RGB) to Component Video (YPbPr) converter with a 3.5 mm to RCA L/R audio cable. See this page for some idea of the available converters: . The VGA to component video cable is meant for projectors that can interpret the RGB signal, not TVs.

If your laptop has an HDMI port, you will need a different type of converter.

Once you have the correct hardware, you will need to make sure that the external video port is active on your laptop. For some machines, you may need to enable this in the BIOS first (press Esc, F1, F2 or F10 (depending on the computer) on bootup to get to the BIOS - it may take a few tries to time it correctly). Then turn off the TV and computer before connecting the cables. Then turn on the TV and set it to the desired input before turning on the laptop. Then set the laptop to send the video signal to the external monitor. (On my Win7 laptop, I right-click on the Desktop and select Graphic Properties. Then set the desired display (laptop screen, external monitor, both) and click Apply. Then press OK when you see the confirmation box on the now active screen.)

The Emerson EWL20D6 was manufactured by Funai for the Emerson line. Thus the manual is available here: . Manuals are listed in alphabetical order. (If you use the search function, leave off the brand name.) The direct link to the manual is: .

I hope this helps.

Do I need to use a converter box with my TV?

I have the same TV. It can receive both signals, so don't worry about the converter box. You will have to make your TV do the Auto Channel Scan when it starts going to digital.

Best antenna for an old Emerson TV

One major problem with digital broadcasting is that signal strength is an issue. It is entirely possible that people who live far enough away from the stations, or where there are many hills or other obstructions, may find they get few or even no channels. (It's one of the reasons there's been so much confusion and upset over the shift to digital. Some people are just going to be out of luck; the government knows it but they just pretty much say "Too bad.")

If you are using an indoor antenna, like the old rabbit ears that may have worked okay with analog, you should try a new amplified antenna made for the digital signals. You might find it necessary to install an outside antenna. If you already have an outside antenna but it's the same one you've had up for years, you should replace it. It's probably corroded, the cable from it won't be the best for the digital frequencies, and it may not be pointing in the right direction.

There are many antennas to choose from. I know of several people who have purchased antennas online from and have been quite happy. You might try talking to others in your area who may already have figured out what works well, and use the same antenna as they have.

Digital tv not picking up digital signal??

According to the manufacturer, the EWL20D6 Television is not digital ready. If that is the case then you will have to use a converter box in order to receive the digital channels.

Analog or Digital?

This tv is analog, EDTV is only enhanced definition tv ,480p resolution, not the HDTV 1080i or 1080p resolution, the mts/sap tuner has to do with the audio decoder. For example: SAP would allow you to view a station broadcast in english to be heard in spanish. MTS is surround sound broadcast. Thanks
