How do I set up a panasonic plasma model number th-42pr11uk to use cable?

Do you not have a manual, please? says that's a monitor - which is to say a screen, not a self-contained TV set.

This video monitor is designed to display television content from a separate TV tuner. Full-power analog TV broadcasting
in the United States will end (as required by law) on February 17, 2009, after which full-power TV broadcasts will be
digital only. If this device is used after that date to record or display programming from a product with a TV tuner that
relies on a TV antenna, that product would need to contain a digital tuner, or a TV Converter would be necessary to
tune the digital signal received with a TV antenna. Analog TVs should continue to work as before for other purposes
(e.g., for watching low-power TV stations still broadcasting in analog, watching pre-recorded movies, or playing video
games). When a Converter is used with an older television receiver or directly with this product, a signal splitter might
be necessary to continue to receive low-power analog broadcasts via an antenna. For more information, please see or 1-888-CALL-FCC. For information on the TV Converter program, and on government coupons that
may be used toward the purchase of one, see, or call the NTIA at 1-888-DTV-2009. Please check
with your cable or satellite service provider if you have questions about your cable or satellite set-top box.

No TV broadcast picture. Is this a tuner problem?

yes it does seem to be a tuner problem , I also wonder what happens when you use the auto channel finder and tuner usually found in the set up section of the menu ? As well as was your TV working before and receiving input via the antennae but has now stopped working in this regard ? I also noted that attaching an analog to digital converter box worked fine , so your TV is capable of receiving a signal via that method , dose the converter box use your antennae input jack or a video jack to send the converted signal into your TV ? if it is using your antennae jack then it may not be a tuner problem .

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...

It looks like you will need a HDTV tuner not a converter box. Here's the link to your manual.

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.

From the side of the carton in which it came:
CONSUMER ALERT: This television receiver has only an analog broadcast tuner and will require a converter box after February 17, 2009 to receive over-the-air broadcasts with an antenna because of the U.S.'s transition to digital broadcasting. Analog-only TVs should continue to work as before with cable and satellite TV services, gaming consoles, VCRs, DVD players, and similar products. For more information, call the Federal Communications Commission at 1-888-225-5322 (TTY: 1-888-835-5322), or visit the commission’s digital-television Web site at:
The only other thing I could add to this, is that the Post Office in 2009 will get the task of handing out $40.00 coupons to to anyone wishing to purchase a converter.
