Do you know if the Visione VISLCD2408 TV has a BUILT-IN DIGITAL TV TUNER or does it only have a ANOLOG TV TUNER ?


If you can tune digital channels directly, e.g., 10.1, 29.2, the tuner is built in.

Is the Magnavox TFT LCD 17 MF200v/17 have a digital or analog tuner?


I believe it has an analog tuner (NTSC) only. The original remote is pictured here: http://www.replacementremotes.com/philips/buy-313923807911-remote-control.html . The TV is listed as having been available in 2004 from Amazon.com. The manufacturer didn't have to include a digital tuner until 2005 for 36"+ models. For a 17" TV, they didn't have to have a tuner until 2007.

I hope this helps.

Just got digital service, can't tune the stations


Check and make sure that your TV has compatibility tuner [analogue / Digital] provided inside. If not, you have to buy a digital to analogue converter to receive digital transmission. Refer the device user manual for details. If f the tuner is digital/analogue compatible; and you can't receive digital channels, it is faulty. The tuner have to be replaced. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

I can't operate my Philips Magnavox 42MF521D/37 Television


Philips has the FAQs and manuals for the 42MF52D/37 here: http://www.m4c.magnavox.com/cgi-bin/cpindex.pl?ctn=42MF521D/37&mid=Link_FAQs&scy=US&slg=AEN . The direct link to the User's guide is http://download.m4c.magnavox.com/files/4/42mf521d_37/42mf521d_37_dfu_aen.pdf . You will need Adobe Reader of a similar program to read the manual.

Is there a specific problem you are having with your set? (OTA or cable setup or another issue) Please add a comment if you would like additional support. Note: digital OTA signals are subject to a "cliff effect" if your tuner doesn't get enough data from the antenna. This will be determined by the tuner, the antenna location (indoor, outdoor, elevation), distance from the transmitter, and any splitters or other wiring problems. I've seen failed amplified splitters turn into filters that block the incoming signal from reaching the TV.

No problem, I just want to know if this tv has a digital tuner? It says it has a "digital comb filter". Is that the same thing?


A digital comb filter is not a tuner. It helps improve the appearance of digital content by splitting the luminance (brightness) and chrominance (color) of a digital video signal (DVD, or other set-top box). This filter is only needed when digital content is going to the TV over RF (coax) or composite (analog) inputs. http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/tv-buying-guide18.htm has some details on the filter,

Please provide the model number of the TV for additional information about the tuner. Normally the tuners will be listed as NTSC (analog), ATSC (digital), Clear QAM (unencrypted digital cable) in the US. In other countries you have PAL (analog) or DVB-T (standard definition digital terrestrial) or DVB-C (standard definition digital cable) signals.

I hope this helps.

Built in tuner not working since digital transition


I do not know if you will get this message but if you do. Here goes. The protron PLTV3250 does indeed have a digital tuner that can be used with an over the air antenna. You need to push "source" on the remote until DTV is selected. With this selected and your coaxial cable from your antenna hooked up to the digital connector (not analog) on the back of this tv you can then press Menu and you will see a totally different looking menu that you are probably not used to seeing and then from there you can do an auto scan for the digital channels and it works great. I have rabbit ears hooked up to this Protron PLTV3250 and this has a beautiful picture. Far better than the picture I get from just the standard digital Directv receiver. You do not need a seperate digital tuner box to use with this TV. It does indeed have an ATSC digital tuner and it works great. You probably are selecting Source "TV" in the menu and that is not what you select for this TV to use the Digital Tuner. You need to select DTV from the source menu. Good luck and please let me know if you already knew this or if this helped you. Thanks, Tom

How do I tell if my tv is analog


Hi Dru,
Good news, your 42 inch Phillips has a built in digital tuner, all you need is an antenna.
Please post the model of your other Tv and I will check on the tuner type.
I have provided a link to a site that has good info on antenna types and the channels you will be able to recieve.
