Hi, Sorry it does not. It has an NTSC tuner which is analog. It will work after the change if you have cable or satellite. Hope this helps!

I'm sorry, according to Magnavox's website, this tv is not digital. You will need a converter box if you have an antenna.

RCA Guideplus gold gemstar analog or digital


Most of the RCA GuidePlus Gold gemstar TVs worked with analog TV signals (NTSC) only. The Guide+ information was only broadcast in NTSC signals and is no longer being provided. If you can check the date of manufacture of the TV, you can use the size to check if it had an ATSC tuner added if it was made for the US market. 37"+ TVs had to have a digital tuner in second half of 2005. 25" TVs needed to have the ATSC tuner after March, 2006. The next year all TVs had to have a digital tuner.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number of the TV, if you would like me to confirm the tuner information on your set.

(The RCA F31317 TV with Guide+ was manufactured in 2000 and thus only has a NTSC tuner.)

Fujitsu P42xta51: Does my fujitsu have ATSC tuning


Yes, the P42XTA51U has an ATSC (digital OTA) tuner. This is given in the specifications for the Fujitsu 51 Series TVs. That document is available here: http://www.hdtvsolutions.com/Fujitsu-P63XTA51US.htm . The direct link to the specifications sheet is http://www.hdtvsolutions.com/pdf/ht_tuner_brochure.pdf . Fujitsu had to include an ATSC tuner because the TV was manufactured in 2005. U.S. law required TVs over 36" have an ATSC tuner starting in 2005.

If you use the appropriate antenna, you'll be able to watch OTA broadcasts. I recommend checking with TVfool.com for antenna suggestions and the angle between your location and the transmitters. ( antennaweb.org assumes an external antenna but is very conservative in the list of available stations.)

I hope this helps.

Does my television have a digital tuner?


HI. Unfortunately, this model is equipped with a Analog Tv tuner(NTSC - M)

You will need a stand alone digital reception module to receive a proper digital signal with this unit.


In conclusion; Your current unit does not have an on-board digital Tv tuner module.

Mine is a different model number but you can try this. Go to set-up and and channel set-up see if there is a setting called tv/dtv if so you have a tuner and can then scan till you find the stations.

Digital tuner


Salutations AnnLeo,

The easiest way to respond to your questions is with a question of my own. Are you currently able to pick up any digital broadcasting from your local stations now, such as any HD broadcasts?

If your not then you may not have an built in digital tuner, but not to worry. It is true that if you subscribe to cable or satellite services they automatically covert your signal back to analog so the television can receive the programing. Otherwise I would suggest you look in to options for the digital tuner coupons. Information on the coupon program and other basic frequently asked questions can be found at:

Salutation TrudyK,

Great question! First think to know is that if you are getting your programing from a cable or satellite provider a digital converter box would not be needed. These services are not being required to change their signals. If you use rabbit ears or an antenna a digital converter maybe required.

Looking at the specifications of your televisions they all appear to have analog tuners which would need digital converters to receive the new digital broadcasts.

Thankfully the FCC does have a program in place to offer coupons to assist in purchasing the new converter boxes.

For more information on the digital transition and coupon programs BestBuy.com has a FAQS, wuizzes and tutorials available at http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?id=pcmcat120600050013&type=category
