Does Orion STV2763 have a digital tuner, does it need special box

I bought this TV for my uncle in Connecticut and he has an outside antenna. He is concerned that he will need a converter box when broadcasts go digital in February. Is that true?

Yes.
The specifications leave little doubt; the aspect ratio of 4:3 corresponds to the standard we are leaving behind in Feb. '09 and there is no mention of 'digital tuner' or ATSC which is the designation for the coming HD all digital signals.
The taxpayer-funded program to bring converters to the people supplies a plastic card like a credit card that can be swapped for the lower end converters so they cost 'nothing.' Well, unless you happen to be a taxpayer instead of a tax recipient. The coupon does not cover sales taxes or shipping if ordered.

A coupon 'eligible' converter from EchoStar seems to be a favorite because of the features it offers.

Hello
You haven't given a clear problem post ebefore me. You have only give the model number and brand name of your TV only. Not give the model number of your RCA converter box. Yet i posts a solution to your problem, assuming that your RCA Converter box model number is " DTA 800B1 " The three digit setup codes for Orion TV with this RCA converter box are: 029, 189, 200

Are my Orion tv's purchased in 2002 digital ready


Your TV does not have a digital tuner. You'll need a converter box for digital broadcast reception. Remember that if you're on a cable system or using a satellite receiver, your TV doesn't need to have digital tuning. It's only if you want to watch off-the-air broadcasts that you'll need the converter.

Is this TV a digital tuner? or will I need a converter box


Hi, If you have an outside antenna you will need a converter box as this tv has an NTSC tuner which is analog.

Message on TV Error cannot access digital services


According to the specs on that model, it does not have a digital tuner capable of receiving ATSC signals. You need a converter to receive the digital signal and convert it to analog so that set can process it. Unless you already have a 'black box' between your signal source and the Orion, you have never received 'digital' signals.

Digital tv


The dealer where you bought the set shoud be able to answer this question. They should be familiar with the local stations in your area.

If you were to call any of the local TV stations in your area, they may be able to advise you of who in your area is selling these converters if you do not want to go back to where you bought your set.

In the long term, you would be better off with a cable or satellite service for your set.
