Hi, This tv has an NSTC tuner which is analog. If you subscribe to cable or satellite it will work just fine without you having to do anything for the upcoming change. However if you are using your own outside antenna or rabbit ears you will need a converter. Hope this helps.

We were given the TB110MW9 Digital TV DTV Converter Box for Analog TV but with no remote . we do have other remotes we've kept from our last box that also died.would we be able to use this re


I thought that model number looked familiar. The answer is a qualified yes. If you have a Magnavox or a Philips remote it should work. If you have a universal remote try to search for a code that will control the box.

I have no cable how do i program this tv set?


I assume you also have no satelite dish. You are probably on an antenna (or rabbit ears). If you don't already have one, you need a DTV Digital to Analog converter box. I am assuming you want to snag broadcast signals from the air, like in the good old days before the massive digital conversion of most broadcast stations. Might be hard to find one in retail stores, but start with WalMart or Best Buy, and if that fails you might check eBay (I think it is too late to get the government rebate which absorbed almost the entire cost of the box, but you might check around on Google searching on 'DTV Digital Analog Rebate'). The DTV converter will change the digital signal now being broadcast on most stations to an analog signal that your antenna connection will recognize. Without a signal, you can't program the channels because the tuner has nothing to latch onto. After getting a signal you just follow instructions for your TV to search for channels -- if you don't have instructions you might have to play around with the menus on-screen until you find what you need, but essentially it will be obvious when you see it ... the on-screen instruction will say something like select or program channels, and may let you choose manally or search automatically (choose automatically after hooking in the DTV converter to find all channels). Hope I understood your problem, your description is a bit vague.

How do I connect my Sansui 6010B VCR with an analog TV and a DTV tuner?


two ways of connecting VCR with Analog TV with DTV tuner.
DTV tuner (RF) output to VCR (RF) input,VCR (RF) output to analog TV (RF) input.
turn DTV tuner on (VCR should have a TV\VCR switch that makes signal coming from tuner BYPASS VHS right into TV) note:: change channel FROM tuner.You should be able to record by placing a blank tape and pressing RECORD.
2ND. DTV tuner, VCR, should have a RCA in\out connections...Audio & video.You need a RF\RCA bypass switch. It has a INput with RCA connections to a RF signal out that goes to the RF Input of analog TV

Magnavox 27mdtr20 17


The Magnavox 27mdtr20/17 is a standard def. television produced in 2003 by the Philips-Magnavox Corporation. This particular model was conceptualized long before DTV was an option, and much further before Digital Television Broadcasts were considered a viable option for our current current communications problems.

You will need a DTV box IF:
A) You use an antenna (roof top or otherwise) to watch television

You will not need a DTV converter box IF:
A) You subscribe to cable services, either analog or digital
B) You subscribe to satalite services

For more information on the reasons behind the DTV transition, as well as getting valuable cupons from the federal government to help subsidize the cost of a DTV box, please visit this site:

Is it DVT ready?


You have an analog TV. If you are asking for the purpose of getting a DTV converter box, you only need it if you use antenna for signal. If you have cable or Satillite there is not need for the coverter box.

Philips CCB130AT02 TV/VCR combo


Is this an Analog TV? Does it have a picture tube and not an LCD or plasma screen? Most likely this is a Analog TV.

If it is an Analog TV (and I would bet that it is), then no, it does not have a digital (QAM) tuner to pick up DTV broadcasts. The fact that it has a VCR also indicates that its an Analog TV.

If you are picking up your TV signals from an outside antenna and not cable, then yes, you will need a converter box to convert the new digital signals to Analog so that you can continue to use your TV set.

If you are using cable to receive your channels, the cable company already provides the conversion for you and your TV will continue to work as before.

The government is giving out coupons to help consumers defray the costs of purchaing a converter box. The following sites are good places to obtain more information.
