Question about Sony KLV-S32A10 32 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

Digital boxes Do I need a digital box for this Sony TV? Nowhere in the instruction manual does it mention "HD-ready" or "HDTV monitor". Will I need a special converter or a cable TV connection in February?. In the index it mentions an HDMI IN jack and an HDMI -equipped device connection, but there is no explanation as to what these are (why can't they explain simply to laymen?)

    I don't know if I need a converter box or HD tuner or what.

    Thank you very much. I appreciate your help and your time. Why do they not explain this when they sell you the TV? The move to digital has been known about for ages.

This model only has an analog tuner, so you will require either a converter box or hi-def tuner after the transition.

Palsonic 1080p full hd tv resolution tv is not picking up digital channels. Other televisions in the house do. What could the problem be


If it is an older set, it may well be the tuner installed in it is not digital. Early sets were HD, but only supported HD on the direct inputs from devices such as DVD players. This is because the early sets were manufactured to support the need for HD resolution television, but the digital broadcast standard was not fully defined yet. Many of these sets were listed as "HD ready", meaning that with a set-top box from a cable provider they could support HDTV, since most boxes have HDMI direct output. Check the specs on the model you have and see if the tuner installed is truly a digital one.

Were is the Ariel output


You have bought a monitor NOT a tv. You need to buy/obtain a separate tuner box for tv signals then connect your tuner box to your monitor.

Set top box


Hello,
If you are using only an antenna (digital tv) with no other company involved (cable dish, etc) you do not need any additional boxes to get the digital signal as the tv has a DTV input. All you need is connect the antenna, switch the tv to that input number, then use the remote to go into the settings area, change the antenna type to digital, then run a scan to find all available digital signals in your area. You should be all ok now!
Good Luck!

Digital connection with cable


No you do not need a converter box. Only people who still get their tv through an antenna need the box.

Is it or isn"t it hdtv


You, my friend, are all ready to go. You have an ATSC tuner along with QAM for digital cable. It has 720p resolution, next step in the future-1080p. You do not need a Digital Converter box, only if you want the premium channels just like before. HAVE FUN and ENJOY.

Can't get digital tv channels.


The W1700 is HDTV Ready but it does not have an internal digital tuner, it only receives NTSC coded signals, not ATSQ/QAM coded signals. In order to see tv in HD you will need an external tuner with component or DVI output that you can connect to the monitors inputs.

Your TV is an "HD-Ready" television. What this means is that your TV is ready to accept HD input from an outside source, but doesn't have the ability to produce the content itself. It is a monitor and does not have a digital tuner. Without a digital tuner (or for cable a QAM tuner) you will not receive OTA broadcast HD.

You need to purchase a High Definition capable set-top converter box. The converter box will have HD component out and may have HDMI out, either will feed your HD Ready TV.

SYLVANIA 6620LG TV - DTV??


The ;quick answer is YES, you will need a converter box to receive digital broadcasts. This set has only an analog tuner built-in. That is why it is HDTV "ready" (ready for you to add a tuner).

As for HDTV vs EDTV it is a matter of resolution. Your set is capable of EDTV resolution, which is better than SDTV (standard definition TV) but not quite as good as HDTV. With a digital tuner you will be able to view all digital programming, even HD, and it will look excellent, though not quite as sharp as a set with higher definition.
