Can Philips TV Model No. 34PW9815/17 accept digital signals?

I read that the AV4 input accepts digital signals.  How do I connect my antenna to this input?

    It answers the problem of whether or not I need a converter box. I'm not sure I understand the comment concerning an "a/v connection expander". Does that mean I can hook the antenna directly to AV4 or does it mean from the converter box?

You will need a converter box to receive digital but if you would like to hook up your antenna to your tv you will need a a/v connection expander kit. Stores like radio shack carry them.

A regular antenna does not carry any digital signal, I think you need a converter box on this TV, then connect the box to any AV input.

AV4 input


To get your over the air signals, you would of course hook up the outside antenna cable to the back of the TV set, as per the owners manual. Then go to channel search in the set up menu as per the owners manual, then do a guide plus set up and follow the directions word for word in the owners manual. It is just way to long to explain here. In case you do not have the owners manual, you can get one from here http://www.p4c.philips.com/na4/3/34pw981599/34pw981599_dfu_aen.pdf Good Luck

How to tune channels on a 14 inch RCA tv?


You need a good set top box, either Hi definition or standard Pal, to make any CRT Television work. These days, non digital TV do work well but they no longer accept analog signals, but when connected to a set top box that receives digital signals, the box converts the digitals signals to analo and sends then to the RCA inputs of your TV and not via an antenna connected to the set top box and the TV.

Dvdr3320v will this model record digital tv programs


This device has 2 composite AV, 1 S-Video, 1 Firewire, 1 RF video inputs. The RF input is a way for it to accept a signal from say a VCR's or Video Game's output on Ch 3 or 4.

Your device also can record via internal tuner.. The tuner can tune VHF:2-13, Cable:1-125 and UHF:14-69. Unfortunately, if you only have a UHF / VHF antenna on your house for TV (do not have cable TV, satellite TV, or the like) you're not going to be able to find anything due to the change from analog TV to digital TV. For this, you would need to purchase a digital TV converter box, and put the output of it into the the DVDR3320V.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply. Thanks.

Idk if my tv is digtal ready it says its hd


The TV will provide an HD picture with a set top box connected to the HD input (AV4 or AV5). It does not have a digital tuner (only a NTSC analog tuner).

The manual is available here: http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/5/51pw9303/51pw9303_dfu_aen.pdf . See appendix B on page 58 for the specifications.

I hope this helps.

Model ds31520. I've had it for years working like this: no antenna, no cable, just DVD (connected to non-S input ports) watching movies. Somehow I hit a button sequence on the remote and now only this: ...


Sorters -

Re-connect to me on the chat and we'll get this sorted. I'm really sorry - I got disconnected and the system would not allow me to reconnect to you. I have some ideas but chat would be easiest. If you don't want to chat, post a message here and I'll message back with some things to try.

BElectric.

N 0 tunneing signal


Most of these TV's are equipped with a on board digital tuner and most people think well heck I'll just hook it up to the cable outlet what the hay. But little do they know there cable company wants you to have there box fer you tuner to work. Make sense?

1. Call the cable company and ask for digital signals to be sent without a box (requires a cable card).

2. If your not using a cable company network and trying a antenna your going to need a Digital antenna's and you also going to need line of sight (no not like sat dishes) I mean pointed at the Broadcast antenna.
if your in a rural area umm your going to need a outside antenna.

I feel what you got here is:

1. ether a OTA over the air antenna and your two far away.
2. or your trying to connect to a cable network that is broadcasting locked digital signals.

Ether the case you must investigate but 9 times out of ten that is what it is.

Or

1. you tuner is bad(not hardly)
2. the connection is bad.

Ether case here you need to investigate, please do rate my solutions and click the accept button for my efforts.

thanks for using fixya.com

WILL THIS TV ACCEPT THE NEW DIGITAL SIGNAL


Hello. All tv's accept the new signal. If you get your signal from satellite or cable, the box will make the signal compatible with your tv. IF you get your signal from an antenna, you may need a converter box, available from places like radio shack and staples.

Is the tv that I have bought about 6 years ago ready for DTV?


6 year old tv probably not digital ready. The converter box will work if tv is on channel 3 and you use a UHF antenna. Most converter box connections have 75 ohm connectors, your tv may have the round connector to accept the input signal. If you have screw on terminals on the tv you will have to go to Home Depot or Lowes and get a matching transformer to go between the tv and the converter box. UHF antenna can be made out of a coat hanger. Just make a circle clean the paint off ends and attach. Or just buy a digital booster antenna at WalMart.

Turn tv on and get no program or weak signal message.


You should be watching tv in no time. Email me and let me know how it went I would like to know if I was able to help. surfpro@yopmail.com

1-You didn't say what model tv you have. Is it a HDTV?
2-Are you using an over the air (roof) or set top antenna connected to the tv?
3-Are you getting the no program or weak signal message on all channels?
4-Have you tried first cycling through the source or input button to make sure you are on TV and not on an input. Sometimes if you are on an input and for example the device connected to that input is off you wil get a no signal until you turn the device first but you probably already know that.
5-When you were in the process of scanning for channels assuming you had an over the air antenna connected did you make sure and select the ota option and not cable? if you have an ota antenna and not cable you need to select ota before scanning for channels.

Now assuming you have an ota antenna and you chose ota before scanning or doing a re scan and after the scan you still get the no program or weak signal message that means there is no signal and you may be using the wrong antenna or try moving the antenna in the direction of the television tower if you know where that is or turn in another direction but unless you are using the wrong antena you should get something.

Assuming you received some channels or even if you did not, try to and add channels by hand. Heres how: first you need to know the RF frequency channel or digital channel its transmitting on you just cant input the number of the display channel you want like on a tube at least not initially but you can after you first input the rf or digital channel number first and saving it on your tv then you can just input the display channel number you are used to. Heres how to manually force the tv to enter a channel without a scan or re scan and possibly loosing other channels with a rescan.

Go here http://www.rabbitears.info/search.php and go to state search choose your state from drop down list and click search now do you see the list of stations? on the left you have the display channel (thats the number you usually entered on a regular tv) and next to that is the digital channel (thats the number you need to enter on an hdtv or dtv initially to force the tv to accept the channel because if you just enter the number your used to initially the tv wont find it) the tv should now automatically redirect you to the channel you are normally used to and any digital equivalent and any sub channels for that channel. Now save it into memory in your tv menu channel list. do this for every channel for your area if you were unable to pick up any stations during a scan.
