Look at the inputs on the back, if it has composit( sed blue green) input, or an hdmi input, it has a atsc tuner, if it doesnt have those inputs, it is only analouge

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.

Do I need a digital converter box & antenna to get


It really depends upon your TV. If your TV is newer and has an ATSC tuner in it, then no - you'll just need the antenna. However, if your TV is older and doesn't have an ATSC tuner, you'll need an external tuner, what you're calling digital convertor, and an antenna to get the local channels. Use Google or another search engine to find the specifications for your TV to see if it has an ATSC tuner. Or, connect an antenna to your TV, run the channel scan (off-air antenna mode) to see if you get any local channels. If you don't, you'll need the external tuner.

How can i tell if my tv is digital


The iLo IWT3206 TV provides two built-in -- or integrated -- TV tuners: a National Television System Committee (NTSC) tuner and an Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) tuner.
While the NTSC tuner allows iLo IWT3206-viewers to receive analog, free-to-air TV broadcasts, the ATSC tuner allows viewers to receive digital TV broadcasts via a cable or satellite provider.
The benefit of having an integrated ATSC tuner is that it negates the need for a separate cable box or satellite receiver, which can take up space.

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.

Is this model digital? My cable company tells me they will not transmit to non digital sets without additional box. Do I need this?


This TV is an older model with an NTSC tuner (OTA and CATV (analog). You will need a set top box with the digital cable system.

The law didn't require ATSC tuners in 13" TVs until 2007 and the TV was listed at Amazon in 2002. The law requiring the digital transition didn't pass until 2006.

I wish that I had better news for you.

I have a Jensen TV, Model Number TS2050J. I need to know if it has a QAM tuner built in.


Hi.
No, your tv is an older model sdtv with an analog only NTSC tuner.

Newer model have an ATSC/Qam digital tuner, but not your model.

This means that if you want to watch tv, you'll have to get a converter box. It will have the ATSC/QAM tuner i it, and it converts the signal into lower definition NTSC, and then sends it to the tv through either coax cable, or rca cables.
Once in a great while you might even find one that has s-video output, but those usually are expensive.

I hope this helps you out.
