Switching to digital

I am hooked to cable television but when they tested my set today, via local news station, it said mine is not HD ready. Do I have to purchase a new set with a digital tuner?

No. The change only effects people that use rabbit ears or a rooftop antenna. If you receive cable now, no change is necessary. You will not be able to receive the HD channels, but you can't receive thiose now either. An HD set will show you the HD signals that your current Standard Def set can not show. Please note that your current set has a digital tuner but processes analog signals. The "digital" tuner that is requried for rooftop reception is to process digital broadcasts as the analog signals will no longer be broadcast.

I hope this helps,
Dan

What do I do to get my signal back on my westinghouse TV that is hooked up to dish cable


If no signal via the cable fitting try hooking set via one of the sets of jacks on the back (audio/video or component) to see if coax input or tuner is bad.

If the set works with a DVD etc hooked to one of those inputs and your cable is good--maybe a bad tuner in the set---also if using a box try hooking cable direct to set to rule out the box.

HOW DO WE TUNE THE TV FOR DIGITAL CHANNELS


If your using basic cable then just use auto program and the set does the rest. You will only get the hd stations your cable provider provides using basic. If you use their hd cable box and pay for more hd stations then you will have more.

Can't find where to hook up tv coax.


As far as I can tell your TV is just a monitor. You would have to buy a separate tuner. I had the same problem with mine and found it was cheaper just to use an old VCR. I hooked up the coax wire up to the VCR and hooked the VCR to my TV with composite cables and changed my channel through the VCR. That will only work now if you're using cable because of the switch to digital. If you're using an antenna you will need a digital tuner.

How to get hd picture through my insignia tv without digital cable


Unfortunately, at this time, you don't unless it is a powerful station local to you. In order to see which stations are available to you, you would enter the Setup menu of your tv, and then the section that allows you to scan for channels.
Also, digital cable alone doesn't guarantee you'll get HD signal. You would have to order an HD package from your cable or satellite provider. For example, Comcast touts their digital package as if it were vastly superior to the "standard" signal. Whether or not it is would be a matter of opinion, but the digital package is not HDTV. This misconception has disappointed many a subscriber, myself included (until I ordered the HD package). :^ )

New TV doesn't register being HD ready during test TV stations do


Try going into the setup menu and make sure it is set to antenna then do a channel program. You don't need to wait for a test there are plenty of channels already there. Both digital and analog channels are still available so you will still a message that you are not receiving digital if you are putting it on an analog channel. The channel number has to have a dot(.) in it like 8.1, 24.1 If there is no dot you are on an analog channel

Yes, you need to buy HD station.
But with DVD you can get HD quality without any other station.

When I press tv the description says I select the atsc or ntsc


NTSC is the earlier and soon-to-be extinct US standard, ATSC is the coming one for HD and is digital instead of analog in its signal coding. Most later sets will determine what is available and switch accordingly. Many stations are running tests at random now for a few minutes to let you know if your set is HDTV 'ready.' Check with your local station schedules to see if they are listing times for this test signal.
