Really depends on the model. I've got a 2005 26" RCA truflat that has both digital and analog ota tuners--I can pick up off of rabbit ears OTA broadcasts, as well as via coax cable (cox cable) any of the unencrypted clear digital channels (QAM). Just can't handle the encrypted channels. If there are multiple coax inputs, check their labels--if labeled digital, likely that you've got a QAM digital tuner. Also, in the menuing system, channel scan--does it identify signal type as selectable digital/analog?

The surefire, get the model number, goto RCA.com website, download the user manual.

This set was made before it was required to have digital tuning built in. You would need a digital converter box if you want off-the-air reception. (The federal program at www.dtv2009.gov that is giving $40 coupons toward purchasing a converter is out of money right now and is only putting people on a waiting list. It also looks like the changeover to digital is going to be delayed again, so you might not need to worry about it for a while longer.)

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.)

I have an rca G36705 and I just need to know if it has a digital tuner or if o need a converter box to hook an antenna to it?


Its inputs include "Composite" and "S-Video".

Itttkk Its *ANALOG* tuner has channel coverage:
VHF:2-13, UHF:14-69, Cable:1-125, VHF:2-13, UHF:14-69, Cable:1-125

So, you will need a digital tuner.

When I hook up the cable to the RCA truflat tv the screen stays blue. I had it working with a cable box, do you know why it's not working with just the cable?


Your cable system is probably digital, and the tuner in this TV isn't compatible with the system. The cable box output was a regular TV channel 3 or 4 signal the TV could tune in. Without the box, though, your TV's tuner sees nothing. You'll need to stick with the box.

Can't change the channel on RCA TruFlat. It just has a blue screen and says "14-3"


That RCA TV has only an older analog tuner, so if you're still using it for off-the-air reception you'll need to be using it with a digital converter. I'm assuming you are, since you say there's a channel number 14-3 being shown. The only way you'll see such a number is if it's coming from a digital converter, which will be sending the signal to the TV on channel 3 or 4 (on the TV's internal tuner).

There are several possibilities. One is that the converter isn't changing channels when you use its remote control. This is often caused by weak batteries, so try a fresh set. If your model of converter has channel up/down buttons on it (some do, but many require the remote for everything), try changing the channel manually.

If the converter isn't changing channels, you should try rescanning. The channel memory may have gotten cleared or corrupted for some reason. Also be sure the antenna is properly connected. With digital broadcasting, no antenna means no picture, guaranteed.

If everything else seems to be correct and the converter isn't finding any channels, you'll need to replace it. Unless it's still covered by the manufacturer's warranty or you have a replacement plan from the seller, you will need to purchase a new converter. They weren't designed to be serviced.

I have a rca truflat tv but lost the remote. How do I get to the input "channel"?


You can usually purchase an RCA universal remote at a discout mall. Just be sure your new RCA remote has an input button! The older models made in 1993 and 1994 would require you press 00. Not so on the newer ones. Good Luck and thanks for asking!

Digital or analog tuner


Your set has a NTSC tuner for the over air broadcasts. You will need a converter box if you wish to use an antenna. If you have cable or satellite, you are fine.

Does my tv have a digital tuner (RCA Model E13320, 2/2001)?


The digital tuner has nothing to do with the new signal you will be receiving in February of next year. The new video signal is a digital signal. The old video signal is analog. Your television receives the analog signal and converts it to what you see on television. You need a converter box to convert the new digital signal back to an analog signal your television can convert.
