You haven't specifed nothing about the model number of your TV here. Anyway, check its user manual and go to the specifications given; normally can be seen at the last page; and check whether it has digital tuner fitted with or not. If there is diginal tuner fitted inside, there is no need for an external converter. If not, need an external converter. OK.
Hi, John. No your tv is an older standard definition tv with an NTSC tuner..that was the old type tuner for analog stations. You will need to get an ATSC digital tuner in order to tune in digital broadcasts.
Luckily, you don't have to spend hundreds to get one. WalMart and several other stores carry inexpensive digital tuner converters that are in the $30-$40 range.
I hope this helps you out on getting stations picked up, as without the converter, your tv would only be good for hooking up a dvd player to it, or for video games.
If your TV is the model listed in the heading, there's nothing in the TV that would give you that message either. So it must be coming from your cable converter. If it was supplied by Comcast they will have to do something about it whether they know that message or not. If it's a digital tuner you purchased on your own, check the manual or try the manufacturer's website for information. But that message can't be coming from the TV.
Possible cause of the problrm is bad/poor solder on the grounds for the tuner circuit shield an the bottom (solder side) of the circuit board. Grounds need a wire jumper from point to point. This was a common problem for those sets and ocassionally it would take out the eeprom chip with it. (Various other problems were shrinking picture/fuzzy picture and intermitt. power)
