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.
Let me know if this helps and please rate this solution. Lone99star

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.
This tv a LCD tv have digital tuner in side,doesn't reguire a DTV converter box.Just have a good strong signal antena.Goto Menu goto setup pick AIR not Cable enter scan will get all the free air DTV broscasting chanels.
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.
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.
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.
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.
