Question about Emerson EWL20D6 Television

Digital tv not picking up digital signal??

Purchased 19" Emerson HDTV that was supposed to be digital tv ready, but when our tv station did the DTV test, the television failed. We had it hooked up to an outside antennae. Does this mean we will
have to use a converter box with the digital tuner on this tv???
If so, I am really disappointed to pay extra for a digital tv and it not work. Thanks

    We can pick up only two channels with our convertor box and we have an antenna that is probably thirty years old and works fine with the analog system. We also have a brand new set that is dtv ready. It's a 2008 model. Does this mean we won't be able to pick up the signal with a new set either? What can we do?



    We live in the Clintonville, Wisconsin area. It is 40 miles straight west of Green Bay, Wisconsin and about 40 miles north of Appleton, Wisconsin.

    We are also 3 hours north of Milwaukee. We are basically located in Northeastern Wisconsin.

According to the manufacturer, the EWL20D6 Television is not digital ready. If that is the case then you will have to use a converter box in order to receive the digital channels.

Dose my tv (Hisense TL3000) is hd-tv ready


Not all units were fitted with the DTV tuner before the switch over occurred. you set should have an insignia that sates that it is DTV ready. if this insignia is not on the box or actual set, you will need a converter box to receive this DTV signal.

New TV doesn't register being HD ready during test TV stations do


Try going into the setup menu and make sure it is set to antenna then do a channel program. You don't need to wait for a test there are plenty of channels already there. Both digital and analog channels are still available so you will still a message that you are not receiving digital if you are putting it on an analog channel. The channel number has to have a dot(.) in it like 8.1, 24.1 If there is no dot you are on an analog channel

DTV Box


Dtv Ready Only Means That It Has A Cable Outlet On The Back They Are Gonna Need The Digital Box If They Wanna Continue Getting Antenna Stations.

IS MY TV DIGITAL READY


Its tuner is NTSC, which will not tune in digital stations. I didn't see a DTV tuner mentioned anywhere on the specs, so don't think it will work. I myself have one and will soon purchase a converter box with the $40 rebate from the government.
