Is this tv hd ready?


Yes, it should be HD ready. There should be a small label on the front of the TV if so (provided it has not been removed). You will need a HD cable box, convertor or HD satellite box (Direct TV or Dish Network) to view HD broadcasts (even from free over-the-air HD broadcasts if you live within range of a local broadcasting station). I had the same, or very similar TV but upgraded to flat screen plasma set.

If we have an hd-ready television and we have dishnetwork hd does their box make our tv hd? Or do we have to have their magical piece of equipment to make our television hd?or tv is the WS-55315 model.


You need a HD box connected to the DTV input on the back of the set (it is marked 1080) This set has only one HD input for this---HD ready means it will work only with a box (some newer sets have a HD tuner built into them and for basic HD channels do not need a box).

The cable box needs to be set to send different signals when using hd tv and standard tv. Usually a good setting would be 720p in hd and 480p in standard. The tv is working fine it is the cable box sending the signal. If you have another hdmi source such as a dvd player you may hook that up to show the tv is working just fine.

I'm looking a HD cable.


This set may have a DTV cable. You probably have an HDMI cable on your box. You can get a DTV to HDMI adaptor.

Is the rca true flat tv able to be used by putting up an antena -or will we need a convertor box ? currently we have direct tv and are thinking about canceling it and use an antena.


This model does not have a built in HD tuner (ATSC Tuner). You would need an HD antenna (that is a more recent antenna that receives UHF) and an HD converter box to get the newly broadcast HD signals.
