No,all CRT tvs(tube tvs) are analog tvs.Tries those Big Box stores like Walmart,Target might still sell those Digital converter box.Not,tries websites like Amazon.com,Ebay.com to buy the Digital converter box to convert digital signal to ur analog tv.
This tv has an analog tuner so you will need a digital-to-analog tuner set-top box (assuming you live in an area where most stations have been converted to digital TV broadcast). Whichever tuner you use, the recommended antenna will depend on where you live and how many tall objects are between you and the transmitters. Go to antennaweb.org or tvfool.com and type in your address. Antennaweb assumes an external antenna but is still very conservative in the channels it will identify as watchable in your area. Tvfool.com lists the channels by direction and the antenna type (by color) you will need to receive them. The color rating is based on how far the stations signal travels to reach your location. An amplifier can help you receive stations that are marginal to your location. (Digital signals are sufficient for the TV to tune them in or you get "no signal" messages.)
I hope this helps.
Cindy Wells (I'm in a rural area with an external antenna with a signal splitter/amplifier. Antennaweb suggests I will only get the stations ~10 miles away. In fact I get the stations from there as well as the ones ~30 miles away.)
Hello, If you are using this combo with cable and the channels just coming through, you will need to replace the tuner(mounts vertically on the main board and it's located directly behind the cable/antenna connector). If you are trying to use this TV with a set of rabbit ears, the free signal channels turnes digital last year and that is why you get nothing. The tuner as an assembly is still available from a couple of sources: Partstore.com and Union Electronics(firstname.lastname@example.org)

This set is listed as having the ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee) tuner. This tuner provides reception of digital over-the-air (antenna/rabbit ears) signals and would therefore not need a converter box fir that use.
If you are trying to receive un-encrypted digital signals from cable, the ATSC tuner does no good. The set would then require a QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) tuner. I am not sure if this set has a QAM tuner or not. Even if it did not, your cable provider must provide a way for you to receive their signal and should make their converter box available to you.
Based on your post/description, it would appear that the TV tuner of the RCA is at fault. Chances are the the VHF Low is not working right but the VHF High is. This is an inshop repair probably requiring component replacement. You may want to confirm by checking your TV's setup in the menu, you should have Cable selected instead of Air or STd and do a Memory + (scan and add channels). If still a no go, then back to the tuner suspect.
The VCR will not display any movie since it normally transmits in Channel 3 (which is VHF Low). If there are no other problem with the VCR then you might still be able to use it by connection it to the A/V inputs of the TV.
If the VCR works in A/V mode, then perhaps you may want to save the repair expense of the RCA TV and use the tuner of the VCR to watch TV and switch channels.
Post back should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Your set should have external video and audio imput jacks besides the tuner imput for antenna,you can use the video and audio outputs from the vcr or DVD and conect them to the video and audio imputs in the tv then you can select a channel below 1 or push the switch that says Video/antenna.
The tv has a set of imputs for audio and video ,there is a posibility your dvd is not working right,you can also try a vcr by using the rca audio and video outputs of the vcr to the rca audio and video imputs of the tv,that will tell you if the dvd is not working ,the tv should have a switch selector for video and antena or have a channel below 1 called aux.
