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.

Does this tv have a digital converter box?


It has:
  • 37" HD Integrated LCD TV with NTSC/ATSC/PAL/SECAM Worldwide Tuner.

  • Per Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/SABRE-37-LCD-TV-LCT371BKA/dp/B001DL8OY4

    So you do not need the Digital converter box since it has built-in ATSC for off the air DIGITAL signal.

    Vhf is not picking up signal, no image


    Well since all TV is now broadcast in High Definition that might be why you are no longer able to tune in a station. You will need the converter box.

    So you are telling me I need a digital converter for this TV to g


    Who was not watching the months of public service announcements? You need a Digital-to-Analog (ATSC-to-NTSC) converter box to receive over-the-air (OTA) signals in most parts of the country. You do not need one for most cable and satellite box outputs--they are NTSC or HDMI. Some low-power, typically religious, stations are still analog. Note OTA may be high definition (HD) or standard resolution (SD) but will be digital.
    To get HD on your HD set you must have OTA (HD TV tuner, not converter), cable (QAM TV receiver), satellite (HDMI or 5-wire RCA),or Blu-Ray with HDMI or RCA.

    Sanyo tv model DS31520..is it an HD tv?


    You can view the specifications here:
    Sanyo DS31520
    I found no mention of the needed ATSC digital tuner so you need to acquire a converter box to receive broadcast signals after the changeover. Cable and satellite reception are not affected.
    I reviewed the available converters and chose the Zinwell ZAT-970.

    HDLCD2600 come set for cable. Make sure the tv is set for "tv" or "air" then run the auto channel memory or search feature of the set. If you have the manual it's under "memorizing channels". If your still have problems, call Sansui TV's customer service number 800 289 0980.

    The short answer is no. You will not need a converter box. This set contains the ATSC tuner required for the new over-air signals.

    their are no hd crt monitors that I am aware of, your tv as per the descriptions I find says nothing about an atsc tuner therefor I would say if you do not have cable or satellite receivers you will need a converter box to receive hd signal from your current antenna

    Sanyo DS31590 and converter box


    I just checked the owners manual online. Looks like this model only has an NTSC analog tuner. No ATSC digital tuner built in.

    If you use cable or satellite TV services, the digital converters won't help you. The coupon-eligible ones are strictly for use with a traditional antenna. If this is your situation, ignore the remainder of this message.

    If you use a regular TV antenna with this TV, then, yes, you will need a converter box. FYI, the Insignia model at Best Buy and the Zenith at Circuit City, and elsewhere (radio shack) have gotten good reviews from early purchasers. More converter box models will be available in a few months time.

    If your current reception with your antenna is poor (snowy), you may have problems receiving the new DTV signals. If not, you should be pleasantly surprised with the quality of the DTV signals - and the extra "virtual" channels. Try the converter box using the RCA video and audio inputs, for a slightly better picture than with the coaxial cable inputs.

    Good Luck
