    My apologies. Wow, at your age and you're on the net, that's remarkable! Hopefully this answer will help: if your set is able to receive multicast channels right now eg. like 9.1, 9.2, 9.3, 9.4 or so on then you're receiving digital broadcast already and will be fine after the digital turnover. As you can see they're all different programs on channel 9. If not then you'll most likely need a box if you want to be economical. However, a brand new plasma HDTV set is the way to go for great sound and fast action movies. LCD's use less power and don't display action scenes as well.

I just received a tv from my church and it is a toshiba 27df46 27" tv. It says" please wait, thank you for your patience". I wait and nothing, Help please? Thanks.


The set is trying to auto program the available channels and it can't find any because since the change from analog to digital [FEB 2009] broadcasting requires a "converter box" to translate the digital signal back to analog. Check around and see if you can find a converter box. They were available for $20 with a coupon, maybe they still are. Try an electronics shop or dealer for that info.

Digital or analog tuner


Your set has a NTSC tuner for the over air broadcasts. You will need a converter box if you wish to use an antenna. If you have cable or satellite, you are fine.

Need info before buying one.


The Sony KV-32S120 has an analog tuner. If you use it with an antenna, you'll need a digital converter box. If you're a cable tv subscriber, the cable company will do the conversion and you won't need anything. Here's what Sony says about it...

Analog or digital compatible?


I didn't see anything on the internet about the features.

Does your tv tuner have the capability of tuning into channels with a decimal point in them, then it should work. If your tv doesn't have that feature, chances are you will need a converter box, cable tv, or satellite.

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.

No, unless you are receiving over cable or satellite. You will need a DTV converter box if you are using an antenna to receive Over The Air television signals. The Proscan has an analog only tuner, so the ATSC (digital) signals will not be visible.

Sanyo DS31590 and converter box


I just checked the owners manual online. Looks like this model only has an NTSC analog tuner. No ATSC digital tuner built in.

If you use cable or satellite TV services, the digital converters won't help you. The coupon-eligible ones are strictly for use with a traditional antenna. If this is your situation, ignore the remainder of this message.

If you use a regular TV antenna with this TV, then, yes, you will need a converter box. FYI, the Insignia model at Best Buy and the Zenith at Circuit City, and elsewhere (radio shack) have gotten good reviews from early purchasers. More converter box models will be available in a few months time.

If your current reception with your antenna is poor (snowy), you may have problems receiving the new DTV signals. If not, you should be pleasantly surprised with the quality of the DTV signals - and the extra "virtual" channels. Try the converter box using the RCA video and audio inputs, for a slightly better picture than with the coaxial cable inputs.

Good Luck
