I have just bought a 19" H D Ready LCD T V with built-in Digital Tuner Model Number T19L1638. I would like to improve the sound by using external speakers I have a Hi Fi amplifier and am wondering if I could use this to connect to the television and then run the speakers from the amplifier, If I could use this amp. could you tell me how to connect it and what type of cables I would need? If I am not able to use this amplifier can you suggest another piece of equipment for me to use? Thanking you in anticipation.........Ivan Martin 4 William Street Poyntzpass Newry Co.Down BT35 6SS

If the TV has audio output jacks then all you need to do is run regular audio cables (shielded cable with RCA connectors) from there to the amplifier. It would be just like hooking up a CD player or any other source. Take a look at the available connectors or refer to your owner's manual.

I'd be very surprised if he set doesn't have such outputs. They seem to be standard today.

How do I get my tv to scan the digital channels? I have used the channel scan and it will not let me scrowl over to scan them . I do not have a digital box but was told that this tv has one bilt in.


Hi
Although your TV is hd ready, it does not come with a digital tuner built into it.
You will have to add an external tuner box to receive digital broadcast stations.
I don't suggest getting one of the cheap ones, as the only provide an SD signal at 480p, clear compared to old analog tv, which was usually 320, but still a far cry from 1080p.

A good tuner box should only run around 60-70 dollars or so, and the picture quality will amaze you on your 51F510.

The tv has a 1080p engine built into it, so if it receives an input with a 1080 signal, it can display it properly.

Cheaper boxes may only offer 720p as it's highest definition output, so get the better box.

You can find them at all major electronics stores, like Fry's and Best Buy.

Hopefully, you do get a digital box for your set, it would be a shame to not get the most out of what is arguably the best quality rear projection tv that was ever made.

I hope this helps you out.

Feel free to give me a top rating if I helped you out, it helps to keep my status up on Fixya.

Thanks, and have a good day !

I would like to know if the Hitachi 51UWX20B television can be connected to the internet.


Your Hitachi 51UWX20B is an HDTV-Ready TV. No Digital Tuner. HDTV-Ready means that your TV set is capable of displaying analog and high-definition digital pictures, but without a digital tuner, it cannot receive the digital signal. An HDTV-Ready requires an external high-definition TV receiver (digital tuner) in order to receive HDTV signals. These external receivers can be called an HDTV Tuner, set-top-box, decoder or DTV Converter Box . So you will be required to purchase a converter box to receive over the air programming from an external antenna.

Does this tv have a digital tuner? i thought it did because it said hdtv on it when I bought it in 2004. but I just bought a digital antenna and i'm getting nothing but snow after i scan for channels. is...


Sorry to say, your HDTV-Ready - Requires separate receiver to view HDTV signals. SDTV (Standard Definition) - has built-in digital receivers/decoders and do not require the purchase of any separate components in order to display digital signals. It provides lower image quality than EDTV or HDTV, but higher image quality than analog TV. SDTV is displayed using an aspect ratio of 4:3. I hope this helps and good luck.

Toshiba Tv - Does it have a digital tuner?


That unit has a NTSC tuner. May be HD Ready but it does not have a digital tuner. Unless you live quiet close to a local Broadcaster, rabbit ears would be useless.
The only way you would be able to get HD is using a HD Set Top Box, HD Satellite System,
or HD Cable BOX, using the Componet or HDMI inputs.
Hope this helps

Doubt about hitachi model 57f500


It is HDTV ready and supports the  1080i (HDTV) • 720p (HDTV) • 480p (EDTV) • 480i (SDTV) • 540p formats.
You can download the manual from: http://www.devicemanuals.com/downloadguide.php

There should be buttons on the front that allow you to access menus, etc. (They may be behind a door or panel.)

Dtv ready?


Going to the following link will help you to find out if your television is DTV ready or not:

http://www.dtvtransition.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=51&Itemid=94

Using their online tool, select the Brand (Akai) and the Model from the list. If you cannot find your model in the list (which I was not able to for your television), they are saying that you most likely do not have a digital tuner.

All is not lost, however. As stated on the aforementioned site, you can consider one of the following options:

  • Purchase a digital-to-analog converter box that plugs into an existing television. The boxes, which are expected to cost between $40 - 70 will be available for purchase in 2008. Beginning in February 2008, U.S. households can request up to two coupons valued at $40 each. Each coupon can go toward the purchase of a single set-top converter box that will allow you to continue watching FREE "over-the-air" television on an analog set.
  • Subscribe to a cable, satellite or telecommunications service provider if all desired local broadcast stations are carried by that service.
  • Purchase a new television set with a built in digital tuner.

    Listed on the page is further information that may help you to determine the status of your TV:

  • Consult your owner's manual. If that's not possible, you may be able to look up information about your TV set on the manufacturer's website. Or, you can take an up-close look at your TV set. You are trying to find out if your set has an input connection labeled "digital input" or "ATSC" (for Advanced Television Systems Committee, which is developing the DTV format).
  • If you bought your TV set before 1998, it probably doesn't have a digital tuner at all. Almost every TV set made before 1998 was a traditional "analog" set that can't display digital TV signals without either a special converter or a cable TV connection. If you bought a big-screen, projection TV between 1998 and 2004, it's possible there's a built-in digital tuner inside. But chances aren't great. Only a limited percentage of projection TV sets (and generally only those 42 inches in diameter or larger) included digital tuners before 2004.
  • If you've purchased a new TV set since 2004, your chances of having a built-in digital tuner improve dramatically. Starting in 2004, many of the TV sets sold at popular electronics stores have featured digital tuners that will let you receive the new digital over-the-air broadcasts starting in February 2009. But be wary: It's not a sure thing. Even some of the newer TV sets are purely display monitors that lack the internal circuitry needed to pick up digital broadcasts. Usually these sets have been advertised as "HD-ready" or "HDTV monitor" sets. That means they can display digital and high-definition signals, but they need help getting those signals in the first place. You'll still need a special converter or a cable TV connection.

    We have a TV in our 2007 5th Wheel RV unit and we need to know if it's a digital TV. We did not receive any paperwork for the television. The model number is TVM1916F or possibly TVM1916E. Could you let...


    This unit has a 181 channel tuner and while I can't find anything that states it has a digital tuner, it sounds like it does. The easiest way to find out is to check the setup menu. If it has a digital tuner, it should give you the option to autoprogram the digital channels.

    Hope this helps,

    I have TV Model #DS27425. Does it have a built in digital tuner, or will I have to buy a box to be ready for HD TV? Thanks. daisypc@insightbb.com


    This particular set does NOThave a digital tuner. However, if you have cable or satelite, a converter will not be needed. Only if you use an external antenna will you require a converter box.

    HD ready?


    The TV is just HD ready (doesn't have the HD tuner built-in), you need a separate HD tuner connected to your TV.
