No it doesn't. You must use a set top box.

Have you gone into the setup and completed the "auto-program" ?

Also check to see if there is anything different in this cable line, anything that could be making the cable's signal too low.

Things like excessive length, inferior connectors, too many splitters, and more will cause the cable signal to be low.

If the TV was purchased as recently as 2007, then chances are decent that it DOES have the ATSC (digital) tuner. HOWEVER, I cannot confirm this for you on my end with the amount of information supplied. (Remember to include as much information as possible when inquiring, such as model numbers!)

HOWEVER...

If your set was sold as a "monitor", or an "HDTV READY" or "High Definition READY" set then indeed it will NOT have an ATSC tuner. If it was sold as an "HDTV" or "DTV", then it SHOULD have a digital tuner. This is based on my experience as lead TV tech at a local repair shop.

Take a look in the menus, and see what channels appear when you attempt to scan for them (assuming you are using an over-the-air antenna). Almost everywhere in the US now stations are already transmitting concurrently in digital and analog, and if you can receive the digital channels, you have a digital tuner! You can sometimes tell by the aspect ratio (widescreen, particularly on new programming, during primetime; be aware that smaller screen sizes usually are not widescreen). You can also tell if any of the channels received use a decimal or hyphen such as "channel 6.1 or 6-2" If you see this type of naming convention, you most certainly DO have a digital tuner.

Otherwise, you might consider how much you paid for the set- If it only cost you $150 brand new, or was on clearance, you probably do NOT have a digital television. Expect to pay well in excess of this amount for a digital TV. Hope this helps!! please comment with any additional ??'s and I will respond further as necessary until we know for sure what you have going on. Thanks for asking!

Hi, Please don't shoot the messenger, you asked but unfortunately the answer is yes. Your tv has an NTSC tuner which is an analog tuner, Sorry. But this should answer your question.

Can I pull menu up on Trutech T2000FT without the remote?


Hello
If there isn't a button marked 'Menu' at the front panel of your TV, you can;t pull out Menu option without its remote control. No TV, which haven't Menu Button on its front panel, can't be controlled for all of its functions without its remote control OK.

I have a wf24t5 that i want to connect to a dish sat hd. how and what do i need to do to connect?


After confirming by viewing the operation manual for this unit, this TV is only capable of inputting a baseband video and standard audio. Unless the Satellite Receiver you have has those type of output jacks then this TV will not be able to reproduce picture or sound from the Receiver. It may be possible to connect through the antenna connection but again the Satellite would need a connector that would output on Channel 3 or 4. Most recent satellite receivers do not offer these ouputs. You indicate that the Receiver you have is High Def. The TV you have is not high def and would drastically down grade the quality of your picture and audio being delivered by the satellite receiver

I have a TV sharp CATV bought in Belgium but installed in France where I cannot find the different channels. Can you send me the directions for use. Thank you.


Hello
The TV you have bought from Belgium, Sharp 25R-S100_ model can only recive NTSC [National Telivision System Commitee], signals only. It is not a multisystem compactable one. In France, the telivision boradcasts are in SECAM system I thinks and knows. [It is known as Sequrntial Colour and Memory]. The TV you have bought will work in US and other countries like that, where there transmission sytem is NTSC. I don,t know whether in France there is TV stations transmitting on NTSC system. If have, your TV will receive that transmissions. It is a system compactibility problem.
If the matter is so, nothing can be done to receive programmes transmitting in SECAM system. If a system convertable device is available in France, that is SECAM to NTSC system converter, you can connect it according to the instruction manual come along with that device.
Your TV is capable of receiving 181 channels and have PLL[ Phase Locked Loop] channel locking system, but have only capable of receiving NTSC RF signals. Ok

I can't program my tv to regular antenna channels


You can program to regular (analog) antenna channels. To do so you must use the original remote which has a TV/DTV switch in the top right corner of the remote. Choose the appropriate mode for the type of channel you want to see or scan for. Here is a link to the owners manual and a picture of the remote swithc. The info on the signal switching is on pg.13.

OTA stands for "over the air"and for a std TV it is searching for VHF/UHF signals as beamed from satellite. If the antennae is properly mounted and connection don't have any sulpher deposits, then the tuner has to be replaced. As far as the antennae, the basiscs are:
Based on this information, you need an antenna that receives high vhf and uhf. KVIE (ch 9, PBS) and KXTV (ch 10, ABC) are high vhf and not receivable with the CM 4220. I would recommend the Winegard 7694 or HBU-22 antennas. The Winegard has higher gain and is a 5 inches shorter than the HBU-22. Shorter boom length and higher gain will come in handy with an attic install. However, 7694 is more expensive ($60 vs ~$40).........................................sodeep

I am not using cable or dish...what type of antenna should i use to get the most out of the digital conversion...and is the built in converter adequate or do i need converter box?


The specs for this TV shows it has ASTC and NTSC so you do not need a converter box.
Almost all the Digital channels are broadcasted in the UHF band.
When you scan in the channels the VHF numbers will still show but the actually signal will be in the UHF band.
