Re: owner manual

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

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 do you get the tv to search for digital channels

I need more info! How old is the television? when you say "standard" do you mean standard definition? CRT or "tube" model?
Older model TVs with the NTSC tuner will NOT pick up the digital over the air signal, you need a TV with ATSC/QAM tuner built in, or a set top box.

    Digital tuner or not?

    Yes in July I do not recall the date you will need the digital tuner for this TV, A rule of thumb look at the manufacture date on the back of the set if its earlier then 2007 you need a digital converter. There are two types of digital QAM signals one is called TRUE QAM and the other is STANDARD QAM the old standard was foe things like DVD's and the like and not OTA "over the air" I hope thisdoes help but you do got a good TV there but if you buy a converter you be gald you did!!!

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

    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...

    Is my Toshiba TV digital or analog?

    if there is a label on the tv stating any of these words “Integrated Digital Tuner,” “Digital Tuner Built-In,” “Digital Receiver,” or “Digital Tuner,” “DTV,” “ATSC,” or “HDTV” then yes
    if they say “Digital Monitor” or “HDTV Monitor,” or as “Digital Ready” or “HDTV Ready" then no

    Ready for nat'l digital transition?

    If it is an older model (i couldn't find anything on it either), it most likely does NOT have a QAM tuner. Be aware that only the "un-encrypted" cable channels will be free otherwise you will have to buy or rent the digital box from the company to get the rest of the regular digital channels. The un-encrypted channels are like 71.2, 83.7 so you should know if you are getting those or not.
