Sadly, no. While this TV is HiDef ready via the color stream inputs, the tuners are old-style NTSC. Shouldn't pose a problem if you're using cable or satellite.

I want to say it does but if it doesn't, just do what I do, My VCR sends the signal to the TV via input 1. Let the VCR change your channels and alas you can record without fancy wiring.

In short; yes.
The only shortfall I saw was its inability to handle 1080 resolution directly but can display 1080 signals in a mode known as 'interlacing' which is done at half the available vertical scan rate and is written as 1080i.

SOURCE: does this tv have a digital tuner?

Sorry to say, your HDTV-Ready - Requires separate receiver to view HDTV signals. SDTV (Standard Definition) - has built-in digital receivers/decoders and do not require the purchase of any separate components in order to display digital signals. It provides lower image quality than EDTV or HDTV, but higher image quality than analog TV. SDTV is displayed using an aspect ratio of 4:3. I hope this helps and good luck.

How do ihook up a digital antenna to my tv


Dominic, you do not state whether you want large outdoor antenna or simple indoor.
If you bought your HDTV anytime during the past 8 years or so, it should have a built-in tuner for receiving digital over-the-air broadcasts. If you have an older "HDTV-ready" TV that only receives analog signals, you'll need to connect it to a separate HDTV tuner.
link below tells how to install outdoor digital TV antenna.

I would like to know if the Hitachi 51UWX20B television can be connected to the internet.


Your Hitachi 51UWX20B is an HDTV-Ready TV. No Digital Tuner. HDTV-Ready means that your TV set is capable of displaying analog and high-definition digital pictures, but without a digital tuner, it cannot receive the digital signal. An HDTV-Ready requires an external high-definition TV receiver (digital tuner) in order to receive HDTV signals. These external receivers can be called an HDTV Tuner, set-top-box, decoder or DTV Converter Box . So you will be required to purchase a converter box to receive over the air programming from an external antenna.

We have a phillips model #32PFL5332D/37 it has a flat screen. Is it digital or analog


Yes this TV should tune to both Digital & Analogue reception. See below I have copied an extract from the Philips technical site which gives you verification that this has digital capability. Hop this is of help to you. Next to analog NTSC broadcast reception, your TV has an integrated High
Definition TV tuner which receives, decodes and displays terrestrial ATSC and
unscrambled cable (QAM) signals.
HDTV quality is only reproduced when a broadcaster or cable provider broadcasts
HDTV signals.

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.

Are 2 tuners needed for HDTV


No, You need 2 tuners for PIP (Picture-in-picture). Perhaps the confusion is that some HD TV's do not include tuners at all. This is fine if you are going to be getting a cable or satellite box for satellite or digital TV. But it's best to cover your bases and make sure the TV has a built-in tuner. 2 tuners are not needed and not all that common.
