Question about Televison & Video

5 Answers

Hi, I recently purchased a Haier flat screen television, model 26 sb. In anticipation of the coming switch to digital broadcasting (we receive signal via an aerial, as we are in a very rural setting),I began looking thru the owners manual for instructions on how to switch from analog to digital reception, but can't seem to find anything. This brings up the question of whether this set actually has on-board digital tuning, or if I will need to purchase a separate converter device?

    Turns out I listed the wrong model number. It's actually a model "HL26BG-A"

  • gn_holt Dec 07, 2008

    I guess I'm wondering if the set I purchased has a digital tuner on board, as it's only around 6 months old. It seems odd that a TV as new as this wouldn't come "digital ready".

Hi
Unless it specifically states it has an ATSC tuner (not to be confused with an NTSC tuner), or it has a CableCARD slot, it's only has an analog tuner, if it has a tuner at all.

Not a big deal, as long as the TV has some kind of input, you can get a Digital Converter box which will decode the digital TV transmission back to analog and feed it to your TV.

Hi

The set will have a TV/DTV button on the remote if it has a digital tuner at all. Likelihood isnt if you cannot find that button.

    If you are in Australia,then there will be a number of cheapo digital set top boxes to do the job for you. **** Smith well one for under $50. Same goes for the rest of the world. Set top digital boxes will be cheap and readily available when it comes to changing over to the digital terrestrial TV. Happy to give you more info, could not find a manual(still lokkong) for your model online.

    But then I read that it does have a built in digital tuner.



    "HL26B: Enjoy top quality media and entertainment with this Haier 26 LCD television. Youll enjoy free over-the-air high definition Analog and Digital channels with this units ATSC/NTSC tuner"



    You may have to setup the channel section presets correctly to get the digital channels up and going.



    HIT that TV/DTV button and see what happens. Good Luck :)

Why can't i get a signal? i just moved the Insignia flat screen from the bedroom were it was working fine to the kitchen to replace a TV that was also working fine, Why can't i get a signal?


Did you re-connect your insignia to an Antenna? Also if your are trying to receive over air broadcast in that part if your house it's possible you'll need a more powerful antenna.

What is a converter box for tv


2_21_2013_6_27_22_pm.jpg
A digital television adapter (DTA), or digital-to-analog converter [set-top box], or commonly known as a converter box, it is a television tuner that receives a digital television (DTV) transmission, and converts the digital signal into an analog signal that can be received and displayed on an analog television set. It may refer to over-the-air broadcast television signals received by an television antenna, or to cable TV systems which switched to digital cable. It normally does not refer to satellite TV, which has always required a set-top box either to operate the big satellite dish, or to be the integrated receiver/decoder (IRD) in the case of direct-broadcast satellites (DBS).

In North America, these ATSC tuner boxes convert from ATSC to NTSC, while in most of Europe and other places such as Australia, they convert from Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) to PAL. Because the DTV transition did nothing to reduce the number of broadcast television system standards (and in fact further balkanized it), and due to varying frequency allocations and bandplans, there are many other combinations specific to other countries.

We are unable to receive radio stations on our recently purchase lcd26advd, is this tv set up or how it should be. The instruction manual makes no mention of radio stations.


Digital TVs or set-top boxes only receive the digital TV signals not the digital radio signals. To receive digital radio, you need a digital radio (DAB+) receiver. The ABC does broadcast two of its digital radio music stations-ABC Dig Music and ABC Jazz-on digital TV and they are available on channels 200 and 201.
If this is helpful a vote of the thumbs up would be appreciated

Good day Sir/Lady I have purchased a Ferguson Analog television . My remote i have is RCU1791 IR9325 Can you please forward me the PIN number in order for it to work? Thanking you in...


If this has an analog tuner, you will not be able to receive the digital broadcast stations - you will have to get a digital convert box. The analog broadcast are no longer available. You will not get any stations. The digital boxes have remote controls - thus you won't need your current remote control.

We have a phillips model #32PFL5332D/37 it has a flat screen. Is it digital or analog


Yes this TV should tune to both Digital & Analogue reception. See below I have copied an extract from the Philips technical site which gives you verification that this has digital capability. Hop this is of help to you. Next to analog NTSC broadcast reception, your TV has an integrated High
Definition TV tuner which receives, decodes and displays terrestrial ATSC and
unscrambled cable (QAM) signals.
HDTV quality is only reproduced when a broadcaster or cable provider broadcasts
HDTV signals.

Hello , I just purchased a 26" Toshiba LCD/HD flat screen TV today. The floor model had the nicest picture at Circut City of the other 26" TVs - but they were hooked up to receive HDTV. When I got it home,...


Yes, the newer flat panel TV's look great with HDTV but amplify the substandard analog TV signals.

I would compare the non HD to VCR quality. If that is what you are seeing then this is normal with non HD broadcasts (typically the channels 1-100).

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

Analog/Digital


HDLCD2600 come set for cable. Make sure the tv is set for "tv" or "air" then run the auto channel memory or search feature of the set. If you have the manual it's under "memorizing channels". If your still have problems, call Sansui TV's customer service number 800 289 0980.
