I'm pretty sure this TV already has an NTSC/ATSC/QAM tuner in there, and should need no converter box whatsover... I say this because I own one...

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...

Analog or digital compatible?


I didn't see anything on the internet about the features.

Does your tv tuner have the capability of tuning into channels with a decimal point in them, then it should work. If your tv doesn't have that feature, chances are you will need a converter box, cable tv, or satellite.

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.

Sanyo DS31590 and converter box


I just checked the owners manual online. Looks like this model only has an NTSC analog tuner. No ATSC digital tuner built in.

If you use cable or satellite TV services, the digital converters won't help you. The coupon-eligible ones are strictly for use with a traditional antenna. If this is your situation, ignore the remainder of this message.

If you use a regular TV antenna with this TV, then, yes, you will need a converter box. FYI, the Insignia model at Best Buy and the Zenith at Circuit City, and elsewhere (radio shack) have gotten good reviews from early purchasers. More converter box models will be available in a few months time.

If your current reception with your antenna is poor (snowy), you may have problems receiving the new DTV signals. If not, you should be pleasantly surprised with the quality of the DTV signals - and the extra "virtual" channels. Try the converter box using the RCA video and audio inputs, for a slightly better picture than with the coaxial cable inputs.

Good Luck

DTV Question


Based on the features described by JVC and the technical details listed on Amazon.com the answer is no, no digital ATSC tuner, just NTSC analog.

So yes, she'll need a converter box for the ATSC over the air signals.
