If it is a flat screen then yes. If it's a older style CRT then you would need to hook it up to a digital converter box. So either way yes it will work.

SOURCE: Digital

If you have Direct TV you will not need a converter box. However that does not mean that Direct TV will provide all of the digital channels that are available in your area. If you want to receive all of the digital channels you may need to purchase a converter box and switch between Direct TV's box and the converter box.

For example, in many cities stations may have 3 or 4 digital channels running but Direct TV is only offering the main channel. In order to watch the alternate channels you would need to unplug the Direct TV box from your TV and plug in a digital converter box.

If you sign up for the $40 coupon currently offered by the Federal government, you can get a converter box for next to nothing. Prices of the basic converter boxes range from about $40 to $90.

SOURCE: trouble receiving local channels on TV using new Magnavox converter box

Your digital converter box probably does not have an analog pass through that allows the old analog channels to go through to the tv's analog tuner.

SOURCE: Is my Toshiba TV digital or analog?

if there is a label on the tv stating any of these words “Integrated Digital Tuner,” “Digital Tuner Built-In,” “Digital Receiver,” or “Digital Tuner,” “DTV,” “ATSC,” or “HDTV” then yes
if they say “Digital Monitor” or “HDTV Monitor,” or as “Digital Ready” or “HDTV Ready" then no

Set up installing antenna, tried Ant A & Ant B no receptiom what do I do?


The first question you have to answer is whether your TV is capable of receiving digital broadcasts. TV stations no longer broadcast the "old analog" signals, but now transmit only in digital format. If your TV is not capable of receiving digital broadcasts, you will need to buy a special box which allows you to receive digital broadcasts. Then you would hook it up in the order: antenna -> digital box -> TV.

If your TV is capable of receiving digital broadcasts, I've found that it is very important that your antenna have a pretty much unobstructed view of the direction from which the signal is coming. For instance, if your local signals are broadcast from the southerly direction, you should try to mount your antenna to a window which is facing south.

One last point before I forget, you must make sure that you select the proper input on your tv. For instance, I have cable, and a dvd player hooked up to my tv. Before I use the dvd, I have to go into the TV menu and select my dvd. When I want to return back to cable, I have to go back into the TV menu and select the cable input.

TV reception breaking up pretty bad because of rainy weather here in Brooklyn New York I live in an apartment and I'm using a Winegard amplified antenna does anyone have any suggestions what improving...


Television signals are at such high frequencoies they will be reflected form buildings and other objects, and attentuated by moisture in the air and through the leqaves of trees, etc. In large cities yourt TV singals can arrive from different paths Digital TV signals bounce as di the old "analog TV" signals but the technology allows the receiver to ignor singals that are out of phase so the picture is "clean" despite multipleversions of the signal arriving at the antenna at slightly different times. That said, if the signal is weak, there is little you can do other than experimanet with positioning the receivng antenna. Typically, building walls attentuate televisoin signals so locating the receving antenna close to a window often provides for stronger signal reception.

Amplified antennas cannot amplify what is not there. Moisture in the form of fog, rain and snow will attenuate television signals and if thre signals are marginal in good weather, they may be virtually not-existent in wet weather. Digital TV signals are threshold dependent. When they are toow eak, you won't see anything. Back in the old analog TV days, you could see a "snowy picture" but digital TV doesn't allow for that. The signal is either strong enough to be viewed or it is not.

You have few real options if you do not subscribe to cable or a satellite tv provider. Amplified antennas can help but if you need them you live in a marginal TV reception area to begin with and more prone to the vagaries of weather and the seasons.

INSTALLED THE DRIVERS ON A NEW PC RUNNING 64 BIT WIN 7 WITH THE NEW DISK FROM HP. ALL WENT WELL PRINTER WORKS WELL EXCEPT THAT WHEN AFRIEND TRIED TO FAX IN COLOR IT WOULD NOT RECEIVE IN COLOR AS IT SHOULD....


Just to give you a simple advice since that right now all of the people are trying to use ALL-IN-ONE and if I'am not mistaken the service that you are using for the fax is also all-in-one, (Internet, TV and phone and this signal is what you call "DIGITAL") but just to tell you what, all of the fax machines are designed to connect with a "Analog" signal (which the fax is directly connected to a wall jack) so some of you guys are using a FILTER to convert the signal from digital to analog
So the theory is "It may or It may not work!" Yes at the first time theirs a possibility that you got it working, but sooner or later it will not work.
But you can try this steps to make it work.
  • Press the wrench/setup button.
  • Go to tools menu, then press ok.
  • Look for advance fax setup, then press ok.
  • Look for ECM/Error Correction Mode.
  • If it is turned off, turn it on.. then if it is turned on, turn it off.

Good Luck :)

Can i buy a scanner today to pickup cellular phones frequencies? Dee


No. Monitoring cellular phone conversations is against federal laws, and no manufacturer offers scanners with that capability to the public. Even older, pre-ban scanners that would seem capable of cellular reception are analog only, and therefore not capable of receiving today's digital signals.

How do I record a tv program with a Sharp A400 VCR? Videos will play on the tv, but I was not able to get it to record. Thanks.


Your VCR is no longer capable of recording "off air" tv signals. All tv stations are now broadcasting in digital format, your VCR is analog only. You can however get a digital converter box that will receive "off air" digital signals and convert them for recording on your VCR. CLICKING HERE will give you all the information you need to hook up the converter box... Good Luck!

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.

Digital tuner


I don't have this unit, but guessing from it's description on Amazon.com, I'd figure that it is analog-only. So you would need a converter.

Here's the thing: all U.S. broadcasters are transmitting the new DTV signals NOW - in addition to the old analog signals. If a TV has a digital tuner, you should be able to use it now to see those DTV signals. Check your setup menu for options like ATSC.
One hint, the new signals use channel designations like 7.1 or 7-1 or 7-1HD. And some stations will have virtual channels, i.e., 7.1, 7.2, 7.3. If you can't get your TV to scan channels and show the numbers in that fashion, it isn't using a digital tuner.
