Question about TruTech PVS31170S1W 17 in. LCD Television

2 Answers

Is my TV digital ready?

I have a trutech 17 '' PVS31170S1, manufactured in Oct. 2007. I have it hooked to a roof-top antanea. When the local station did a test, my screen went blank. The salesman at Target said it was digital ready.

    That letter from the FCC to Target was interesting. I'm sure Target will give me a free converter box, even though I don't have my receipt any more for the TV. I may have to threaten to write to the FCC, who will threaten to fine Target $11,000. It will only cost them $10 (with my coupon) to give me the box. I think they will do it. Otherwise, I like the TV.

The Trutech PVS31170S1 has a digital tuner in it. I just did a channel scan using the rabbit ear antenna and it works fine.

I just checked in to this for you. I found a website about this exact television. Here is the link :

http://www.fcc.gov/eb/FieldNotices/2003/DOC-274084A1.html

It says that Target did not put up the appropriate notification on these TVs about them being only analog. You will need a converter box for this TV.

Indoor antenna problem with Magnavox LCD TV Model 15MF605T/17


I have found most of these indoor antennae to be ineffective and a waste of money, however, I do not know anything about this particular antennae. I to have a Dish DTVpal, which I love! It's ugly and probably won't fit in your kitchen, but the best solution is to make your own "bow-tie" antennae, mount it indoors or on the roof and run a cable to the kitchen. Directions can be found on You-Tube. I live in SE Idaho (Pocatello) and can get 13 channels, most without having to adjust the antennae.

Trutech 17 LCD TV/VCR Tuner


If the TV was purchased as recently as 2007, then chances are decent that it DOES have the ATSC (digital) tuner. HOWEVER, I cannot confirm this for you on my end with the amount of information supplied. (Remember to include as much information as possible when inquiring, such as model numbers!)

HOWEVER...

If your set was sold as a "monitor", or an "HDTV READY" or "High Definition READY" set then indeed it will NOT have an ATSC tuner. If it was sold as an "HDTV" or "DTV", then it SHOULD have a digital tuner. This is based on my experience as lead TV tech at a local repair shop.

Take a look in the menus, and see what channels appear when you attempt to scan for them (assuming you are using an over-the-air antenna). Almost everywhere in the US now stations are already transmitting concurrently in digital and analog, and if you can receive the digital channels, you have a digital tuner! You can sometimes tell by the aspect ratio (widescreen, particularly on new programming, during primetime; be aware that smaller screen sizes usually are not widescreen). You can also tell if any of the channels received use a decimal or hyphen such as "channel 6.1 or 6-2" If you see this type of naming convention, you most certainly DO have a digital tuner.

Otherwise, you might consider how much you paid for the set- If it only cost you $150 brand new, or was on clearance, you probably do NOT have a digital television. Expect to pay well in excess of this amount for a digital TV. Hope this helps!! please comment with any additional ??'s and I will respond further as necessary until we know for sure what you have going on. Thanks for asking!
