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,

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 Jensen TS2750J model ... am trying to hook up and be able to process the HD that the home I rent a room from receives that signal from their cable company ... but don't know how to get my TV...


Hi.

The setting on your tv for the best signal is the HRC setting.
HRC stands for High Resolution Cable.

If you connect the cable to the blue jack, and set your tv to HRC, when you scan for stations, it should pick up all of them, not just the analog cable stations.

Now, some cable companies require an additional adapter, provided by them, in order to recieve the cable signal properly.

This adapter is called a digital transport adapter.

You should contact the cable provider, and see if the adapter is required in order to recieve their signal properly.

I hope this helps you out.

Good luck to you, and have a good day.

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.

Having to manually change TV input when switching between HD and standard


Salutations ScottB15,

Looking over your owners manual, I hate to say that it appears there is not a automatic way to switch between Ant to component video. As your television does not appear to have a built-in digital tuner you would be connecting it through the component connections, and as the only analog tuner is running through the antenna connection you would have to use that.

On the bright side with the transition to digital broadcasting this should be something you will have to do less and less. And once 2/17/2009 comes around you won't have to do it at all.

Wish I had better news, but at least there is always a bright side.

If it is an older "hd" tv it is probably 'hd ready.' Check for adjustments on your source. The tv will most likely only display the highest resolution it is given.
