If the set is an LCD, yes, it is "Digital" but that only refers to the display. To receive digital off-the-air broadcasts, the set must have a digital or ATSC tuner, otherwise the set has a standard tuner that will no longer work. If the set is "digital ready" a digital satellite/cable/off-the-air converter box must be used, and fed to the set's video input(s).

Did you get fooled? Hard one to answer. It more than likely was the result of the sales person's lack of technical knowledge. "Digital" and "Digital Ready" designations have confused just about everyone since "digital" was first introduced to television.

Hope this clarifies some of the mystery, rhais.

Why will my new tv not pick up any channels when using the auto channel search


It depends on if you have cable or are using an antenna. If you have cable, make sure you have the cable that runs in between them hooked up to the correct spots. If you're using an antenna, you might need to get a TV converter box. A couple of years ago, they stopped making regular TV channels and switched to only digital channels. Most older TVs don't work with digital channels, so you need a box that will convert the picture. You can get one at any place that sells TVs (walmart, amazon, etc)

DOES THIS TV NEED A CONVERTER BOX?


If you scan your channels you will find out if it is digital. Say for instance you get channels 2-1, 16-3, 12-2, 12-3, then your TV is digital. Now if all your channels have no dashes and your channels come up 2, 12, 9, 16, and so on then you have an analog TV. Since this is a walmart brand there is not any online support that I can see. If you bought this a few years ago then again your tv is more than likely analog.

Is the tv that I have bought about 6 years ago ready for DTV?


6 year old tv probably not digital ready. The converter box will work if tv is on channel 3 and you use a UHF antenna. Most converter box connections have 75 ohm connectors, your tv may have the round connector to accept the input signal. If you have screw on terminals on the tv you will have to go to Home Depot or Lowes and get a matching transformer to go between the tv and the converter box. UHF antenna can be made out of a coat hanger. Just make a circle clean the paint off ends and attach. Or just buy a digital booster antenna at WalMart.

Require a TV converter box?


that doesn't have to do with digital signal, just quality, if your tv shows the channels as 4.1 or 4-1 : example... then it IS digital!
