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...

How can I switch from digital to analog?


If this is a CRT then you do not have a choice to get digital over analog. It is an analog TV. You can get what is called a scan converter to convert a digital signal to an analog but you will not be viewing a digital signal. To view a true digital signal you need a digital tv that has a resolution of 720P or higher. Most TVS are 1080P standardize which is the most common.

Is it possible to connect headphones to digital audio out connection without hooking up an amplifier?


No, because the digital audio output is digital. Headphones need an analog signal. You'll need to connect the digital output to an amplifier with a suitable digital input, and listen to the headphones through the amp.

Hdmi will not work only use of component cables will.


Hello

The HDMI[1] input on your TV receives digital audio

and uncompressed digital video and audio from an

HDMI device or uncompressed digital video from a

DVI[2] device.

This input is designed to accept HDCP[3] program

material in digital form from EIA/CEA-861/861B-

compliant[4] consumer electronic devices (such as a settop

box or DVD player with HDMI or DVI output).

The HDMI input is designed for best performance

with 1080i high-definition video signals, but will also
accept and display 480i, 480p, and 720p signals.

To connect an HDMI device, you will need:

• one HDMI cable (type A connector)

For proper operation, it is recommended that you use

a short HDMI cable. You should not encounter

difficulty if you use an HDMI cable shorter than 16.4

ft (5m).

HDMI cable transfers both video and audio.

Separate analog audio cables are not required (see

illustration below). Some CDVs (video CDs) may

not output digital audio signals. In that case, you

may hear sound by connecting analog audio cables.

However, if you connect analog audio cables with

this connection, the HDMI terminal on the TV will

not receive the HDMI digital audio signal and you
will hear analog audio only.

To ensure that the HDMI or DVI device is reset

properly, it is recommended that you follow

these procedures:

• When turning on your electronic components,

turn on the TV first, and then the HDMI or

DVI device.

• When turning off your electronic components,

turn off the HDMI or DVI device first, and
then the TV.

To connect a DVI device, you will need:

• one HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable

(HDMI type A connector)

For proper operation, the length of an HDMI-to-

DVI adapter cable should not exceed 9.8 ft (3m).

The recommended length is 6.6 ft (2m).
• one pair of standard analog audio cables
OK

My tv won't pick up all channels since going digital. says signal is 62 percent. we have an arial extension could this be the problem.


If you live in the United States it is a problem since going digital. Analog signals are not broadcast anymore and your antenna is designed for analog signal, not digital. Now that the DTV Transition is completed, analog TV sets need additional equipment -– a digital-to-analog converter box –- to receive over-the-air television. Analog sets equipped with a converter box will display the digital broadcasts, but not in full digital quality. The box can be purchased almost everywhere. I hope this helps and good luck!

Do i have a digital television?


Unless your TV has an internal NTSC/QAM tuner it will require an external digital --> analog converter to receive digital broadcast signals after the analog shutoff date.

If you have Cable TV, most providers will continue to support analog signals on their wire so you will not require a converter box.

We bought a 20" analog/digital tv the analog channels come on fine but we it scans for the digital channels it says no siginal will we be able to watch it when the change takes place even though we can't...


This could be caused by two different issues.
  • Digital signal reception is bad. The digital signal must be locked in, digital signal reception is either on or off (not like analog signal reception where you can receive a low signal and a fuzzy picture). You may need to adjust you antenna direction and height or obstructions around your antenna, reference the web site for your specific location (address) for antenna compass headings. http://www.antennaweb.org/aw/Address.aspx
  • Television is faulty, digital receiver is bad. Your new television has two receivers, an analog receiver and a digital receiver. A simple power surge will knock out your digital receiver. Make sure you have a quality surge suppressor connected to the television power and the antenna is properly grounded. Return the television for a replacement and purchase a quality surge suppressor.
You must add a quality surge suppressor to your digital television! http://ezinearticles.com/?Power-Protection-in-the-Home-Theater---Use-of-Surge-Suppressors-to-Guard-Expensive-Electronic-Gear&id=41318

Good luck.

Message on TV Error cannot access digital services


According to the specs on that model, it does not have a digital tuner capable of receiving ATSC signals. You need a converter to receive the digital signal and convert it to analog so that set can process it. Unless you already have a 'black box' between your signal source and the Orion, you have never received 'digital' signals.

Switching to digital


No. The change only effects people that use rabbit ears or a rooftop antenna. If you receive cable now, no change is necessary. You will not be able to receive the HD channels, but you can't receive thiose now either. An HD set will show you the HD signals that your current Standard Def set can not show. Please note that your current set has a digital tuner but processes analog signals. The "digital" tuner that is requried for rooftop reception is to process digital broadcasts as the analog signals will no longer be broadcast.

I hope this helps,

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.

No, unless you are receiving over cable or satellite. You will need a DTV converter box if you are using an antenna to receive Over The Air television signals. The Proscan has an analog only tuner, so the ATSC (digital) signals will not be visible.
