What are the ports on back of GE#27GT271

My guess is that is a tube type analog signal
"standard broadcast" television...

20 year old technology (which means you WILL need
an analog to digital CONVERTER Box to get BROADCAST channels...

There is about a 28 page owners manual (below)... makes no references to any port... but an ANTENNA which is configured through the on screen MENU.

Do I need a digital converter box?

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.

Is jvc av-32d503 digital ready or do I need to buy a converter box for use with an outside antenna system

Looks like you'll need a converter.

Here's some background info:

Analog TVs were made up until 2007.

Digital tuners for over the air signals are called "ATSC tuners".

To tell if your TV has one:

-If the TV was sold as a "HDTV" or "DTV", it's supposed to have an ATSC tuner built in to it. "HD ready TVs" do not have a digital tuner.

-Check the specs in the owners manual or google the make & model of the TV to see if it has an ATSC tuner.

-If your TV's menu has an option for scaning for digital channels, then it has an ATSC tuner. If it dosen't have a way to scan for digital channels, then it doesn't have a digial tuner.

Most DTVs also have a digital QAM tuner that is used in some (but not all) cable systems.

Will my TV receive digital signals without an external digital converter?

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.

Good luck tio you, and have a good day.

Digital converter box- error msg

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.

I have a GE TV model: 27GT271 and no sound

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)
