The reason you don't get a picture from your cable box is there is NO tuner in that model of tv. What other kind of outputs are there on your cable box? If there are audio and video outputs you can get cables to connect the two.

Vizio Model E470VL, HDMI ports are not functioning properly.

on some TV's the Analog board is where the other cables plug into. I know on a Sanyo I am working it looks like the analog and main digital board are all the same. but they are just hooked together. I bought an analog board for less that $30 from Shop The prices might vary according to the make and model of TV. need to be careful and remove the back of the TV . and get the part # directly off the board. BE SURE TO UNPLUG from the wall outlet first. Nearly all the boards carry a charge even when unplugged so be careful.

I am moving tomorrow and won't be able to afford cable or satellite for awhile. I have a newer model Sanyo tv. Will I need a converter box or can I hook an antenna directly into the tv to pick u

If your TV has the screw-on coaxial cable connection on the back, then you will not need a converter box. You can attach an internal or external antenna and have your TV scan for digital channels. The converter boxes are mostly for old CRT TVs with analog tuners or newer home theater "monitor" TVs which are being produced without built in tuners.

Digital ready?

Sanyo's customer service responded that this TV is not digital. If it's connected to an antenna, you will need to purchase a Digital to Analog converter box.

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

Need converter box

Not if you have cable TV, satellite TV, or FIOS. If so, a converter won't do anything for you. Not needed.

If, however, you only use a regular TV antenna or rabbit ears, you will need a converter box as this model TV only has an NTSC analog tuner built in.
