I'd need the model number to tell if the RCA TV has a digital (ATSC) or analog (NTSC) tuner. The mandate for inclusion of the ATSC tuner depended on the size of the TV and the year of manufacture. Small (<25" diagonal) TVs didn't need to have an ATSC tuner when they were built until 2007. The older TVs could still be sold with a "cable-ready" or similar NTSC only label. (The 32"+ TVs had to have the ATSC tuners in 2005 and the mid-size TVs had to have the digital tuners in 2006.)
For example the 27F530T was manufactured in 2003 and only has a NTSC tuner. However, the 20F424T was manufactured in 2008 and does have an ATSC tuner.
Which model do you have? The ATSC tuners were required in 42" TVs starting in the middle of 2005. Some Hitachi 42" TVs built before that date have an ATSC tuner but other models do not. The ones that didn't were usually called HD-ready TVs. For those models, you need a set-top box to receive OTA signals (except for some low power stations that continue to broadcast an analog signal).
If you provide your model number, I'll try to confirm the tuner information. If you look at the model information plaque on the back of the TV, you will see some information about when the unit was manufactured. If it was built in 2006 or later, you can be sure that the unit has a digital tuner.
You have a ATSC Digital tuner in your set which accepts over the AIR digital transmission. Your set does not have the ATSC QAM tuner to receive digital cable transmission. Those size sets are usually designed for outdoor use with an antenna and for camping ect.....Outside of that, go ahead and connect it and see what happens...Do auto program.
The HDTV tuner is out. Analog tuner, and video inputs work fine.
