If your portable set was made before March 1, 2007, then it almost certainly does not have a digital tuner and would require a converter box. (After that date, the FCC requires all TV's to have the digital tuning.)

Can I conveRt an analoge signal to digital for Casio tv


The need depends on what country you live in. In the US,Canada,and Mexico there are no longer any analog TV signals Everything broadcast over the air is digital. A digital to analog converter is available so older TV's without a built in digital tuner can be used.

Input signal.


You should be able to connect the TV to the antenna without the tuner converter box. If you still do not get signal you may need some type of signal amplifier between the antenna and TV. Hope that helps.

Digital tv channels use analog carrier frequency of old system then changes to digital tv numbers later in the tuner memory. Leave tv on or standby at all times to have tuner set the digital tv numbers in its memory. You can reset the memory by pull the plug on the wall for 5 minutes then reconnect to the wall plug.

Does the Bush LT26M1CA have an analogue tuner


Hi, Your Tv does indeed have an analog tuner for UHF and VHF reception. Remember you need to have an external antenna connected to receive anything via the analog input. On your remote in the upper right hand corner is a button labeled tv/dtv that will switch back and forth between your analog and freeview digital. Good Luck, this should Fixya!

Even though it's small, it's still a TV with a standard tuner. So you could use it with a converter box if you really wanted to. You would need to connect the box to the TV's external antenna connector with an appropriate adapter. Then the TV would stay on channel 3 (or 4) while you change channels through the converter box. But just like any other set without the new tuner, once the regular broadcasting ends it won't be able to pick up digital channels.

All of us that own this pint-size tv will experience the same problem come Feb. 2009. The only solution is to purchase a digital tuner adapter and "adapt".
