Question about Toshiba Televison & Video

Open Question

Can't receive digital channels off air anymore.

Have Toshiba projection tv, Model 56MX195, with built in digital converter. Had been able to get several digital channels off the air BEFORE the big change this month. Now we can only get 2 channels. We have roof top antenna that also supports 2 other tv's. They receive all digital channels. We have rescanned several times, reset, unplugged, you name it. Do we need to get some other converter for it?,

    Hi annettek79, It could be the type of digital encoding the tv station is using ? We has issues with a horse racing channel that had a lower grade of encoding check if it is mpeg -2 or mpeg -4 for the tv station involved. Then check if tv can handle the encoding used . http://www.acma.gov.au/theACMA/engage-bl...

SOURCE: need to know how to go cable free. Have TERK digital antenna

Shouldn't do, just connect the antennas into the Belling-Lee TV antenna socket at rear of set, tune channels. If you antenna won't fit, you may need an "F" connector to "Belling-Lee" converter plug. You will need an "Ordinary" Yagi VHF/UHF antenna installed though. Is that what that digital one is?

Toshiba 32hl67us -- I am attaching an indoor antenna to receive digital local channels, the tv will only search in analog.. Do I need a converter?


You don't need a converter. You would need one if you had an older Analog TV, to enable it to receive Digital over the air channels.
Check the manual to read about the various configuration sub menus. My TV is a Samsung and when I want to scan for channels, I can select AIR, CABLE, or AUTO. After I select AIR it goes on checking the spectrum, looking for DTVair and Air.

I was watching my Toshiba 56mx195 DLP tv and heard a popping noise and the screen went blank but the sound was still on, is it the lamp or something worse?


You are correct in this assumption it is more than likely the lamp that blew after too many hours or getting to hot.

I bought a toshiba 36HF12 36" tv


The TV does need a converter box to receive digital off-the-air broadcasts. It's an HD set, but that doesn't mean digital; no digital tuner was built in. You can find the manual here at Toshiba. Hope this helps, and thanks for using Fixya!

Model 55311 Can you pick up digital tv without converter box?


I am thinking that you have a Mitsubishi WS-55311. If this is the case, you will need a converter box to receive digital television signals.

I hope that this helps you resolve your issue.

Digital Channels??


Direct from the Hitachi website - "Integrated HDTV Tuners: Hitachi's new top-of-the-line XWX series features built-in ATSC terrestrial and cable HDTV tuners to provide integrated high resolution, high-definition signal decoding." You will need a seperate HDTV tuner if you do not have cable or satellite and want to watch off-air High Definition channels.

Toshiba Color TV CF306 - Can it receive digital, with converter


The short answer is yes. The method is to set the TV to receive either channel 3 or 4. The converter will receive the digital broadcasts and "re-broadcast" them on either 3 or 4 analog for the TV to receive.

Let me know if you need anything else.

if they say “Digital Monitor” or “HDTV Monitor,” or as “Digital Ready” or “HDTV Ready" then no
