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.

I have a trutech pLV16320 LCD tv, do i need a converter box?


Hello
There is no details or user manuals in NET about your Trutech TV. If you have its owners manual with you now, go to its specification page, and see whether this TV have internal digital tuner or not. It will be speicied there. If there is internal digital tuner, you need not buy an external converter box. In not you have to. OK.

Trutech tv - no sound, but have picture


Check if you would have the same if you use a different signal source. Another DVD Player, a playstation or other AV devices. The source or the TV may not be understanding each other, one may be sending analog signals while TV is only recognizing digital.

I am still trying to scan the air channels, I am hooked up to an antenna and can only get the Spanish channels. How do I get all the digital channels?


Hi Tat2,

First: If you do not have a cable hookup, if you are using an antennae, you should get a converter box.

It handles the scanning, the decoding of sub-channels (I have four OPB channels), signal strength filtering. It's remote, controls both the box and your TV.

It hooks up between your TV and antenna. Set your TV to channel 4, click the on button. The first time menu comes up, scans the channels and lets you know when its done. You'll find channels you never knew existed.

They're easy.

Best regards
Mike

Since the switch to digital transmission, my antenna no longer works with my Trutech 19 inch TV. What kind of antenna do I need to buy in order to get reception?


to add to what MIKEY-MOORE wrote, OUR government was offering discount ($20 off a $40-$45) coupons on a digital converter box that you can use your original antenna ( I still use my original nineteen and 65 (1965) rabbit ears antenna) to receive the digital signals NOW being transmitted through the air. In order to receive the signals YOU MUST get the converter. GOTO any Radio Shack, Walmart, to acquire the converter box. You will need one for EVERY tv in your house. I have a HDTV (but not digital) and I had to buy 3 boxes.

The base on my 19in Trutech broke. Can it be replaced? And if so, how do I order one?


Try this link:

TruTech TV Manual.pdf

It's a PDF manual from the actual TruTech website. TruTech is an exclusive TARGET store brand.

The link above is a manual for the PVS2119 19" LCD TV with DVD Player. You'll need the Adobe Acrobat Reader (it's free on adobe.com).

But this manual even helped me install my TV and I have the
TruTech PVS31170S1W 17".

These 2 TV models are very much the same. I hoped this helped in some way.

Is my TV digital ready?


I just checked in to this for you. I found a website about this exact television. Here is the link :

http://www.fcc.gov/eb/FieldNotices/2003/DOC-274084A1.html

It says that Target did not put up the appropriate notification on these TVs about them being only analog. You will need a converter box for this TV.

PVS31170Si Trutech TV Is this digital?


I have this model. I believe it is digital because the auto channel select finds numerous (a few hundred) cable channels (I have Comcast cable in Houston, TX) at channel 69 and above, e.g., 77-324, etc. I believe that analog tuners won't do this.

Does anyone have a manual for this TV? I'll pay to have a copy made.
