Only if your using rabbit ears or have a outside antenna, if you are on cable your ok. If you do have cable or sattelite you just need to run a new connection to it.

Do I need a tuner or converter box for this type of TV?


Most projection tvs even if they say HD need a converter box. This is because the HD tv part is referring to playing hd video through the component inputs. This input is typically where you would connect a dvd player or blue ray player. Most projection tv's where made before the transfer of analog to digital tv.
Hope this helps

Is the PT50LC13 a digital TV? I didn't buy a converter box thinking that the TV didn't need one, but over time and unable to see any channel even with one, I wonder if the TV is indeed digital or not. I...


This tv only has an analog tuner (NTSC). That is why it works with cable and dvds. You will need a converter box to view OTA signals. (In addition, digital signals have a firm cut-off of signal strength; if the tuner doesn't get enough signal the channel will not be available.) So check with antennaweb.org or tvfool.com for details on the antenna direction for your area channels. antennaweb is very conservative in the channel listing it provides (even with the assumption of an external antenna). tvfool gives the color specifications of the antenna that should receive a given set of channels in your area.

The converter boxes are still available from select vendors but the government coupons program is not. Here's one that is listed as in stock: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3150939&CAWELAID=198809366 . This is one of the standard definition output boxes. High Definition digital to analog converters also exist but are more expensive.

A cheap alternative may be to use a PC TV tuner (either USB or internal card) attached to the antenna and then output to the TV. This TV has a VGA port. (If you want to use component video in on the TV, you will need to check if your video card will support the non-RGB signal or a converter box for that.)

I wish that I could be of more help.

Toshiba 51H84 Television Questions


I'll try to respond to the questions in order;

1) This unit requires a converter. It only has an NTSC tuner not ATSC.
2) The remote will not control the converter as the coverter is too new.


Your best bet for having a songle control for all devices is to purchase a universal remote that will control the converter. I am not aware of one, but must admit that I have not really looked much. To control the number of devices you would like, the control will likely cost in the $10-$15 range.

Keep us posted,

Dan

Can only pick up chanel from 2 thru 13,do i need a box converter all other tv get 98 stations


A converter box will allow you to get all the channels but if you are only getting 2-13 now go into the customer menu and I think you will find the set is in the AIR band and not the CATV band.

With the remote you should be able to move it into the CATV or cable mode and then if needed find and select auto program.

The fact you are only getting 2-13 means it is not in the CATV or cable mode.

DTV Conversion Question


Yes you can connect a DTV converter box in your van.
If the TV is DC powered you will need to buy a DC to AC inverter, like these http://www.dcacpowerinverters.com/12_volt_power_inverters.html because there are currently no dc dtv converters available.
If the tv is ac powered you will only need to connect the converter to the inverter the tv is connected to.
If you need more help or installation instructions let me know.

About a converter box


You will need a converter box for both TVs just to get the HD channels but you might not see the HD resolution on this TVs.
Any TV that was manufactured before 2002 will require the converter box. A few of the high end TVs manufactured after 2002 might not require the converter.
Hope this helps.
