Not if you have Cable TV or Satellite TV. The converter is only needed to receive broadcast TV from an antenna. The signal from the Dish box will be fine as that is the tuner.

Is Trutech model KLV3112A digital ready?


The KLV3112A does have an ATSC (digital) TV tuner included. The manual for the KLV3112A is available here: http://www.1800customersupport.com/productdocuments/KLV3112A_TruTech.pdf . The only mention of the ATSC tuner is on page 24 (page 25 of the PDF) under the use of the Display key on the remote.

Depending on your location, you may need an external antenna to view any digital broadcasts. If you use one antenna with several TVs, you may also need an amplifier. (Note: amplifiers do fail and can become filters that block some channels.) To check the recommended antenna for your location, see http://www.tvfool.com ; this site gives more specific information on the antenna needed to receive surrounding station transmitters.

I hope this helps.

Is the Rca true flat digital


I'd need the model number to tell if the RCA TV has a digital (ATSC) or analog (NTSC) tuner. The mandate for inclusion of the ATSC tuner depended on the size of the TV and the year of manufacture. Small (<25" diagonal) TVs didn't need to have an ATSC tuner when they were built until 2007. The older TVs could still be sold with a "cable-ready" or similar NTSC only label. (The 32"+ TVs had to have the ATSC tuners in 2005 and the mid-size TVs had to have the digital tuners in 2006.)

For example the 27F530T was manufactured in 2003 and only has a NTSC tuner. However, the 20F424T was manufactured in 2008 and does have an ATSC tuner.

I hope this helps.

Does a hitachi 42 inch need a converter box to be able to watch regular tv


Which model do you have? The ATSC tuners were required in 42" TVs starting in the middle of 2005. Some Hitachi 42" TVs built before that date have an ATSC tuner but other models do not. The ones that didn't were usually called HD-ready TVs. For those models, you need a set-top box to receive OTA signals (except for some low power stations that continue to broadcast an analog signal).

If you provide your model number, I'll try to confirm the tuner information. If you look at the model information plaque on the back of the TV, you will see some information about when the unit was manufactured. If it was built in 2006 or later, you can be sure that the unit has a digital tuner.

I hope this helps.

Is jvc av-32d503 digital ready or do I need to buy a converter box for use with an outside antenna system


Looks like you'll need a converter.

Here's some background info:


Analog TVs were made up until 2007.

Digital tuners for over the air signals are called "ATSC tuners".

To tell if your TV has one:

-If the TV was sold as a "HDTV" or "DTV", it's supposed to have an ATSC tuner built in to it. "HD ready TVs" do not have a digital tuner.

-Check the specs in the owners manual or google the make & model of the TV to see if it has an ATSC tuner.

-If your TV's menu has an option for scaning for digital channels, then it has an ATSC tuner. If it dosen't have a way to scan for digital channels, then it doesn't have a digial tuner.

Most DTVs also have a digital QAM tuner that is used in some (but not all) cable systems.

How can I have digital tv without using the cable company


As long as you have a ATSC tuner in the set you can use rabbit ears or an outside antenna like years ago. Look up your model number with Bing or Google and find a site that displays all the technical specs and look for equipped with ATSC tuner for Air signal.

If you don't have that tuner then you will have to have a cable hd box with component outputs, they take care of that.

Polaroid Model TLX01911C


Greetings!

This set is listed as having the ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee) tuner. This tuner provides reception of digital over-the-air (antenna/rabbit ears) signals and would therefore not need a converter box fir that use.

If you are trying to receive un-encrypted digital signals from cable, the ATSC tuner does no good. The set would then require a QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) tuner. I am not sure if this set has a QAM tuner or not. Even if it did not, your cable provider must provide a way for you to receive their signal and should make their converter box available to you.

Hope this helps explain things a little,
