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.

I have a sharp LC-37G4U and can not get it to load over air channels. this a digital tv but the only way they would load is with a converter. how can I download over the air channels on the tv


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.

Crutchfield has a nice list of the specifications for the TV here: http://www.crutchfield.com/S-4LS7pNsldXK/p_70037G4U/Sharp-LC-37G4U.html . The manual has the full specifications for the TV on page 100. Crutchfield has the manual here: http://pdf.crutchfieldonline.com/ImageBank/v20040615154800/Manuals/700/70032G4U.PDF .

I wish that I had better news for you.

Is the Rca true flat digital


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.

I hope this helps.

Convert ntsc to pal for sony bravia tv


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.

Menu feature on pltv-3750 is not functioning on dtv source.


ATSC is not a cable tuner, it is for antenna only. Qam tuner is for HD cable. If you dont have a QAM tuner you need a cable box.

I don't know if my TV's digital tuner will work when they switch over to digital broadcasting. My TV does have one but during a test it didn't work


The Sharp LC-19SB25U 19 in. HDTV LCD TV has both a NTSC and an ATSC tuner.

The NTSC tuner will stop working in Feb. 2009 but the included ATSC tuner is what you need for after the digital transition.

If this is not the model number or manufacturer of your TV, then please post them.

Tv Tuners


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.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
