If you are on cable or satalight you will be fine. If you are still using an antana you will need to get a converter box to watch tv. You can also go here to get more answers. http://www.dtvanswers.com/

Does this t.v. has a high definition tuner, and if not which high definitiion converter would you reccomend! Thank You


All flat panel TV's are HD. The old style TV's are not HD even with a converter box. The converter box changes a digital signal into a analog signal. Flat panel TV's operate on a digital signal only.

I have a Toshiba older TV that doesn't have HD digital converter box I bought a leaf ultimate antenna do I still need to use the converter box with this new antenna


if the tv does not have a built in hd digital tuner you need a Hd digital converter to analogue converter. What you need to be careful about is the available inputs on the TV if it only has AV in then you need a converter that transmits out RCA video or an analogue tv channel on RF the tv can tune into. Some of the new converters have HDMI out so if TV does not have HDMI input it won't connect. The antenna would go into the converter. Not sure how much signal you need you may need an rf amplifier if the signal is poor in your area.

Hi, I live in a flat in London with a shared rooftop aerial (no idea of spec). I have a Sony KDL-46X2000. The built-in freeview tuner doesn't seem to recieve any HD channels. Is the built-in tuner the...


Make sure you have a good connection from antenna to TV. Check antenna and cable and cable connection to TV. Select DIGITAL button on TV remote when wanting HD channels. Remember HD channels are always digital. Also, any given TV station may not be broadcasting in HD at a given time. They can broadcast in digital but in standard definition sometimes. Your TV has a built-in DVB-T tuner. Try executing a channel scan to pick up all available channels. On-screen menus go to Digital Setup, then Digital Tuning, you can auto-tune or manual tune channels. The TV should take a few min. to scan thru available channels and store the channels its finds. Check with anyone in your area to see if they get HD channels (it is possible to be outside of the range of some TV stations) Your TV is a 2006 model and should still be compatible with local digital TV broadcasts but keep in mind digital signals could change in the near future (DVB-T2) and you may need a tuner/converter box to make the TV compatible.

Do I need a digital converter box to recieve a digital broadcast with a Sharp LC-20SH4U TV?


Yes you need a digital converter box. Your model has an NTSC Analog Tuner. It doesn't have a Digital Tuner. This is why you need the converter box.


For example, many companies like Comcast or Time Warner or TCI etc used to broadcast Analog Signals through their wires. Now they have broadcasted only Digital Signals. This makes either your TV Obsolete as a Tuner or you have to get a digital converter so your Analog TV can receive the signal.

Depending on your service, it may be worth your while to get a TV with a digital Tuner.

Then again, it also depends on if you are connecting a box receiver to your TV. For example, if you have Directv or Dish, you would then use your standard Video/Audio or Composite Cables to transmit your signal OR your Out to TV Coaxial whichever works for your receiver. Some receivers have already built in converters . You should really consider all the factors to decide and determine it based on the type of service you have or want.

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.

Built in tuner not working since digital transition


I do not know if you will get this message but if you do. Here goes. The protron PLTV3250 does indeed have a digital tuner that can be used with an over the air antenna. You need to push "source" on the remote until DTV is selected. With this selected and your coaxial cable from your antenna hooked up to the digital connector (not analog) on the back of this tv you can then press Menu and you will see a totally different looking menu that you are probably not used to seeing and then from there you can do an auto scan for the digital channels and it works great. I have rabbit ears hooked up to this Protron PLTV3250 and this has a beautiful picture. Far better than the picture I get from just the standard digital Directv receiver. You do not need a seperate digital tuner box to use with this TV. It does indeed have an ATSC digital tuner and it works great. You probably are selecting Source "TV" in the menu and that is not what you select for this TV to use the Digital Tuner. You need to select DTV from the source menu. Good luck and please let me know if you already knew this or if this helped you. Thanks, Tom

Digital ready?


Deacon J,
You will need a digital converter box OR high definition tuner for the transition. What's the difference? A converter box will only output a standard definition signal, either on channel 3 or by composite or S video cables. A high definition tuner will allow you to watch the new digital broadcasts in hi-def, assuming they are transmitted in hi definition. The converter boxes are the cheaper option and you can get a coupon from the government for a $40 rebate on the box, but I would opt for the hi-def tuner fo the better picture quality.CNET has a good write up on the transition here:
http://www.cnet.com/1990-7874_1-5108580-3.html
I did some looking and about the cheapest hi-def tuner I could find was $150, which is 3 times what a converter box would cost. I would expect the cost to fall on the tuners over time. Perhaps a converter box may be a good solution until the prices fall, if they do. The problem is that not many companies are making the tuners, as most TV's already have a hi-def tuner built in, so there isn't a big market for the add-on tuners. I hope this answers your questions.

Digital boxes


This model only has an analog tuner, so you will require either a converter box or hi-def tuner after the transition.

Your TV is an "HD-Ready" television. What this means is that your TV is ready to accept HD input from an outside source, but doesn't have the ability to produce the content itself. It is a monitor and does not have a digital tuner. Without a digital tuner (or for cable a QAM tuner) you will not receive OTA broadcast HD.

You need to purchase a High Definition capable set-top converter box. The converter box will have HD component out and may have HDMI out, either will feed your HD Ready TV.
