Dtv Ready Only Means That It Has A Cable Outlet On The Back They Are Gonna Need The Digital Box If They Wanna Continue Getting Antenna Stations.

Set top box


Hello,
If you are using only an antenna (digital tv) with no other company involved (cable dish, etc) you do not need any additional boxes to get the digital signal as the tv has a DTV input. All you need is connect the antenna, switch the tv to that input number, then use the remote to go into the settings area, change the antenna type to digital, then run a scan to find all available digital signals in your area. You should be all ok now!
Good Luck!

I have no cable how do i program this tv set?


I assume you also have no satelite dish. You are probably on an antenna (or rabbit ears). If you don't already have one, you need a DTV Digital to Analog converter box. I am assuming you want to snag broadcast signals from the air, like in the good old days before the massive digital conversion of most broadcast stations. Might be hard to find one in retail stores, but start with WalMart or Best Buy, and if that fails you might check eBay (I think it is too late to get the government rebate which absorbed almost the entire cost of the box, but you might check around on Google searching on 'DTV Digital Analog Rebate'). The DTV converter will change the digital signal now being broadcast on most stations to an analog signal that your antenna connection will recognize. Without a signal, you can't program the channels because the tuner has nothing to latch onto. After getting a signal you just follow instructions for your TV to search for channels -- if you don't have instructions you might have to play around with the menus on-screen until you find what you need, but essentially it will be obvious when you see it ... the on-screen instruction will say something like select or program channels, and may let you choose manally or search automatically (choose automatically after hooking in the DTV converter to find all channels). Hope I understood your problem, your description is a bit vague.

Have a vizio lcd tv . can not get any channels today with the switch over to digital. i use an antenna


Your TV probably does not have a digital tuner connected to the DTV/ANT input. Mine didn't. I had to connect the digital antenna to a digital converter box THEN go to the DTV/ANT input. Only then would it activate the DTV menu and allow me to scan for channels. If your TV worked fine with Cable TV connected to the input, it was because your signal was coming from the digital tuner in your DVR, or your cable provider was sending you an unscrambled digital signal (not likely).
I used a digital converter box I had purchased with the government $40 coupon back in 2009 but the resolution is only 480 and looks like a Monet or Renoir. Now I am shopping for a high quality tuner.

After the DTV switch, should I be placing the cable cord into the dtv output to receive all the DTV channels? Protron PLTV 3250 is the set I have and it doesn't seem to get the DTV channels like my other...


Your question is confusing. If you have cable, you don't need a DTV converter box.

If your cable company has switched to digital cable, they will provide you a box, and the cable should go from the wall into the box, then into your TV.

If you don't have cable but instead rely on an antenna, then the wire will go from the antenna into the DTV box, then from the DTV box into the back of the TV. If you're using a regular coaxial cable to go from the DTV box into the television, the TV should be set to channel 3. If you're using the red-yellow-white RCA wires between the DTV box and the television, the TV must be tuned to "Aux," "Line In," "Input Select," or whatever it's labeled on your particular set.

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

I have a Trutech PVS31170S1W LCD Tv,do i need a converter box?


Your tv is DTV ready, it has both an ATSC and NTSC tumer. You can recieve analog and digital OTA (over the air) signals.
You will need to connect an antenna and set the tuning band to AIR not CABLE..
I have provided a link with more information on DTV and Antenna's.

Dynex TV Model DX-LCD32-09 Does Not Pick Up DTV Signals


Make sure you buy an antenna from walmart or something. once that hooks up to the tv you should be able to receive some. otherwise the tv itself doesnt have a built in antenna. I bought one from walmart for 30.00 and i get about 8 dtv channels. there are cheaper ones.
