Can I receive a digital signal and if so, how?

I have a NS-27HTV. If I can switch to digital, can I also receive analog signals. I am operating from a roof mount antenna.

I'm pretty sure this TV already has an NTSC/ATSC/QAM tuner in there, and should need no converter box whatsover... I say this because I own one...

What is a converter box for tv


2_21_2013_6_27_22_pm.jpg
A digital television adapter (DTA), or digital-to-analog converter [set-top box], or commonly known as a converter box, it is a television tuner that receives a digital television (DTV) transmission, and converts the digital signal into an analog signal that can be received and displayed on an analog television set. It may refer to over-the-air broadcast television signals received by an television antenna, or to cable TV systems which switched to digital cable. It normally does not refer to satellite TV, which has always required a set-top box either to operate the big satellite dish, or to be the integrated receiver/decoder (IRD) in the case of direct-broadcast satellites (DBS).

In North America, these ATSC tuner boxes convert from ATSC to NTSC, while in most of Europe and other places such as Australia, they convert from Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) to PAL. Because the DTV transition did nothing to reduce the number of broadcast television system standards (and in fact further balkanized it), and due to varying frequency allocations and bandplans, there are many other combinations specific to other countries.

You don't name the model but if there's asettign for audtomatically selecting digital vs analog when both are attached it's losing the digital signal and automatically switching to the analog feed. Find it in the manual. lacking a setting, it prefers digital over analog and will switch to analog on digital signal loss.

Analyze what source(s) are involved and investigate WHY you're losing the bitstream. Optical cables must be run with smooth loose bends so the light strength is not compromised.

Analog is cutting in and out while channel isn't being changed. Also, channels in analog have no sound at all. I tried to switch signal select to auto and the problem continues. what should I try next?


If you're only using analog audio, switch the signal selection to manual or analog.

If the source(s) that do this are primarily digital and they experience any problems the unit will want to dynamically switch to its analog path. If there's no analog path connected from the same device(s) you'll get silence every time it switches to analog. Observe the display when the problem occurs.

HP pc with built-in tv tuner


Have 9, 5 and 13 turned entirely digital as yet, so as to leave you without their signal?

From what you say, the tv tuner in your HP receives analog signals better than or instead of digital signals the stations you can receive may be analog while 9, 5, and 13 may have dispensed with their analog transmitters.

They don't have to until June, since the changeover was delayed from the original February cutoff date by Act of Congress. It is actually easier to receive a digital signal than an equally powered analog equivalent so the fact that your system worked so well with analog signals bodes well for the efficiency of your indoor antenna arrangement, though you may have to replace the possibly analog receiver in your pc with a usb digital thumbdrive like model to continue after the changeover is final.

Here's a tip...if the receiver in your pc resembles a square aluminum tin can, mounted on a PCI card in one of your slots, it is very likely analog and not digital.

Usually these receivers (or actually TUNERS) are heavily sheilded while digital receivers do not require the same amount of sheilding to avoid interference with other components, which is the concept of the big square tin can, that a digital tuner does not require.
