I hope this soultion is helpful.

How can I be sure that I am buying a digital TV (DTV)?
By law, beginning March 1, 2007, all television reception devices (including TVs, VCRs, DVRs, etc.) imported into the U.S. or shipped in interstate commerce must contain a digital tuner. Retailers may continue to sell analog-only devices from existing inventory, but must prominently display on or near the analog-only device a Consumer Alert label with this advisory:

What is the difference between “Integrated” DTVs and DTV or HDTV “Monitors”?
An Integrated DTV set is a television with a built-in digital tuner (also referred to as “a DTV”). A digital tuner is also sometimes called a DTV decoder or DTV receiver. If you have an Integrated DTV, you will not need any additional equipment, with the exception of a broadcast antenna (either a rooftop antenna or “rabbit ears” connected to the set), to receive over-the-air digital broadcast programming. Integrated DTVs can also receive and display analog broadcast programming, so you can continue watching analog broadcasts.
In contrast, a DTV Monitor is not capable of receiving digital broadcast programming without additional equipment; it is simply a display device without the processing capability for DTV reception. A digital or HD set-top box must be connected between the antenna and the monitor to receive and display over-the-air digital or HD programming.
If you have a digital or HD “Monitor” and would like to purchase a digital or HD set-top box to view over-the-air programming, confirm with your retailer that the set-top box is compatible with your Monitor.

Do my panasonic hdtv 1080i need a converter box in order to work?


None of the newer style TV's need a converter box because all the tv channel tuners use a digital signal. The tv signal in the air is now digital when using a tv antenna.

I have a Panasonic pvq-M2508 (made in 1998)I have a Magnabox Digital converter box. The Panasonic has an antenna. I cannot get the box to recognize any stations. I go through the wizard setup and...


Can you list exactly how the converter, antenna and TV are connected? The converter should be connected directly to the antenna and the output of the converter to the TV. The TV should be set to either channel 3 or 4 if you are using the 'F' connector on the back of the set.or line if you are using the RCA connectors on the front.

Verify the connections to be as above and update this if you still have a problem. The set should be compatible with the converter. I have one here in the shop that works fine.

Hi, when in June there will be thr passage to digital I'll can countinue to use this tv or I need a converter? Thanks Maria


According to Panasonic this set is not capable of receiving digital signals, therefore will require a converter box.

You can get a coupon from the government for $40.00 towards the purchase of this box at the following address.
https://www.dtv2009.gov/

You will need an antenna that is capable of receiving UHF signals. Not rabbit ears, but the loop type of antenna that sometimes comes with rabbit ears.

I always encourage everyone to get the coupons from the government, because they are free and you can request two per household. (That’s $80.00)

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Digital Converter Box


Hi William

You TV is able to receive Free to air Terrestrial Analog broadcasts by just connecting the antenna. However if you wish to receive Digital Terrestrial broadcasts (DVB), you need to obtain a digital receiver for Terrestrial Digital Broadcasts. It can be easily connected to your TV.

Can't tell if we need converter box for a Panasonic TV CT 27SC14J


this tv does not have a digital tuner. so, if you used an antenna to get off air channels, you would need a converter box. however, if you have cable or a satellite dish you will not need anything.
