I believe if you call Magnavox and they can send you an owners manual, just be sure you specify owners manual and not service manual. and go to contact us

Ematic AT102 How do you program it to receive the cable channels when no cable box is needed?

Unfortunately, the Ematic AT102 does not have a tuner for cable television. It only has a ATSC (digital over-the-air) tuner. You need to connect it to an TV antenna and then search for channels. Depending on where you live, you may need an external antenna to get sufficient signal strength to receive local channels. See for signal strength information in your area.

Older cable signals are NTSC (same as analog over-the-air). Newer digital cable is QAM. (Some channels are broadcast as clear QAM which don't need a cable box with some tuners/TVs.)

To record your cable, you will need a different type of DVR/set-top box. An old VCR or DVD recorder with an NTSC tuner would work to record analog cable. There are a few ATSC converter boxes that also support clear QAM. This is one of the models: .

I wish that I had better news for you. Other options are available for NTSC, ATSC or QAM tuners. Please add a comment with more information about your cable service if you'd like extra information on these options.

Does my Emerson LCD TV/DVD combination model LD195EM8 7 have a internal QAM tuner?

The Emerson LD195EM8 7 does not have a QAM tuner. It just has the ATSC (digital OTA) and NTSC (analog OTA and cable) tuners. Emerson TVs are manufactured by Funai. You can find most of their manuals here: . Enter your model number without the 7 to find the download link; the direct link is hidden in the Java script. Sears Parts Direct also has the manual. The direct link to the LD195EM8 manual is .

I wish that I had better news for you. I hope this helps.

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.

I have a Jensen TV, Model Number TS2050J. I need to know if it has a QAM tuner built in.

No, your tv is an older model sdtv with an analog only NTSC tuner.

Newer model have an ATSC/Qam digital tuner, but not your model.

This means that if you want to watch tv, you'll have to get a converter box. It will have the ATSC/QAM tuner i it, and it converts the signal into lower definition NTSC, and then sends it to the tv through either coax cable, or rca cables.
Once in a great while you might even find one that has s-video output, but those usually are expensive.

I hope this helps you out.

    How to install a converter box on the tv

    First Converter boxes are a poor economic investment.
    Second you have an HDTV. It does not need a Converter box.
    Just connect an amplified antenna.


    Built-in ATSC QAM Tuners - QAM and ATSC tuners included to enable the set to receive Digital cable-in-the-clear signals, as well as digital terrestrial broadcasts. HDTV reception is possible by adding an Optional HDTV antenna

    Polaroid Model TLX01911C


    This set is listed as having the ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee) tuner. This tuner provides reception of digital over-the-air (antenna/rabbit ears) signals and would therefore not need a converter box fir that use.

    If you are trying to receive un-encrypted digital signals from cable, the ATSC tuner does no good. The set would then require a QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) tuner. I am not sure if this set has a QAM tuner or not. Even if it did not, your cable provider must provide a way for you to receive their signal and should make their converter box available to you.

    Hope this helps explain things a little,

    Tv Tuners

    Hey jp62388,

    According to information provided by the manufacturer, this model TV should have a built-in NTSC/ATSC and QAM tuner. These should allow you to receive locally broadcast digital TV signals without the use of a set-top box or digital converter box.

    If you're concerned about your TV's specifications, the most important thing you'll need to look for is a built-in or integrated ATSC tuner. NTSC is the old analog standard that is to be phased out in early 2009, while ATSC is the new digital standard that is to be used within the United States and Canada as NTSC’s replacement.

    Should you have any other questions or concerns, I'd strongly suggest checking out the FAQ section of the federal government’s official DTV transition website:

    Hope this helps you out.

    Go Ahead. Use Us.
