Re: When I press tv the description says I select the...
NTSC is the earlier and soon-to-be extinct US standard, ATSC is the coming one for HD and is digital instead of analog in its signal coding.
Most later sets will determine what is available and switch accordingly.
Many stations are running tests at random now for a few minutes to let you know if your set is HDTV 'ready.'
Check with your local station schedules to see if they are listing times for this test signal.

Unfortunately, the Sharp Aquos LC-37G4U TV is an HDTV-ready monitor. It does not have an ATSC (digital OTA) tuner. The A/V Center box (TU-GA1U-S) that came with the TV has two NTSC tuners. You'll need the over-the-air ATSC to NTSC (analog) converter box or a stand-alone ATSC tuner DVR set-top box to get most OTA channels. There are only low power NTSC tuners that continue to broadcast; you will only receive those stations if you are close to their transmitters.
I'd need the model number to tell if the RCA TV has a digital (ATSC) or analog (NTSC) tuner. The mandate for inclusion of the ATSC tuner depended on the size of the TV and the year of manufacture. Small (<25" diagonal) TVs didn't need to have an ATSC tuner when they were built until 2007. The older TVs could still be sold with a "cable-ready" or similar NTSC only label. (The 32"+ TVs had to have the ATSC tuners in 2005 and the mid-size TVs had to have the digital tuners in 2006.)
For example the 27F530T was manufactured in 2003 and only has a NTSC tuner. However, the 20F424T was manufactured in 2008 and does have an ATSC tuner.

Press the "TV/AV/PC" button to display the choice of input sources, move to the required choice (SCART in your case) using the channel up/down buttons, then press the volume + or - button to selectyour choice.
While a modern PAL TV can display NTSC sources (namely DVD players and PAL VHS players that support pseudo-NTSC), an NTSC TV can not display a PAL source, unless it's an expensive multi-standard TV. Sorry pal, bad choice.

Hey jp62388, According to information provided by the manufacturer, this model TV should have a built-in NTSC/ATSC and QAM tuner. These should allow you to receive locally broadcast digital TV signals without the use of a set-top box or digital converter box. If you're concerned about your TV's specifications, the most important thing you'll need to look for is a built-in or integrated ATSC tuner. NTSC is the old analog standard that is to be phased out in early 2009, while ATSC is the new digital standard that is to be used within the United States and Canada as NTSC’s replacement. Should you have any other questions or concerns, I'd strongly suggest checking out the FAQ section of the federal government’s official DTV transition website: http://www.dtv.gov/index.html Hope this helps you out.
