Question about RCA F38310 38" TV

1 Answer

Is the f38310 digital ready or do I need a converter?

The TV was bought in 2002 by my father-in-law. Does he need to hook up a analog/Digital converter? He does have a dish hooked up, but it is not in service. He just uses it as an antennae. We did try to install the converter, but did not get a signal.
Thanks.
Cris

No you do not need a converter box your television is digital ready. I use mine with a regular antenna and recieve many channels mostly High Definition and some analog you should notice that when your hooked to a quality HD antenna and assuming you are within broadcast distance you will be very surprised at the quality you will no longer have blury or faded pictures they will be crystal clear. This is because digital broadcast is either there or it's not. no inbetween although you can get what is called speckling thats where little dots pop up randomly the best olution to this problem is buy an additional antenna and run both antennas in through a splitter and this should clear that problem up redundancy is the answer

Hope this helps

How do I get channels on my TV


If you TV is HD ready (digital), then you need to connect the antenna to the unit so the tuner can identify the channels. If your TV is an older analog unit, you will need to use an analog to digital converter. The antenna will connect to the converter, and the converter will connect to the TV. The converter will tune the channels and send them to the TV on channel 3 or 4, depending upon the converter.

Do i need a converter box for my rca true flat 27 in? if not how do i connect a digatal antenna i have lost my manual


Your TV will require a Digital Converter Box to recieve over the air Digital Television Signals. You will need to hook up the antenna to the converter box and then hook your converter box to the TV. Hooking your television directly to a digital antenna will not get you Digital signals...only analog signals.

Are my Orion tv's purchased in 2002 digital ready


Your TV does not have a digital tuner. You'll need a converter box for digital broadcast reception. Remember that if you're on a cable system or using a satellite receiver, your TV doesn't need to have digital tuning. It's only if you want to watch off-the-air broadcasts that you'll need the converter.

No this TV is not HD ready. However it is digital (ATSC) ready meaning now that most of the analog brodcasts have stopped it will receive the digital broadcasts so you don't need a converter box. Since it can only display 480i resolution it is not HD ready. You would need a TV that can display 720p or better to be considered HD ready.

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.

Digital ready?


Sanyo's customer service responded that this TV is not digital. If it's connected to an antenna, you will need to purchase a Digital to Analog converter box.
