Yes. You can use a regular antenna for any flat panel HD TV. You're only limitation the type of antenna and whether or not your flat panel TV has a built in digital tuner. If it does, you'll be able to scan for digital channels without any additional components, including the High Def ones,  though you may not get every channel available with a set of rabbit ears. A roof top antenna will give you a stronger signal and more channels. If your TV does NOT have a built in digital tuner, you'll have to purchase a digital converter box and attach your antenna to it to receive the digital and HD channels. Good luck.

No antenna port for Olevia TV How do I connect outside antenna to Olevia monitor


you will have to use a VCR, DVD player that has a built in tuner, or an HD converter box. The HD converter box will have an antenna connection for the outside antenna. But will also have RCA outputs to connect your TV to the converter

My 3 years old polaroid TV , hasn't hight definition , three months ago, we take off the cable system and connected to a regular antenna , with the cable it gave us a very good sight , but now ...


Hi
High definition [HDMI] is a format used in tranmitting signals with cable connection. Transmissions are of analogue, and so the set will recogonize it and will chanve to it automatically when you connect the extrnal antenna. There is no way to chage an analogue signal to digital within the Tv itsef. It will display the signal as it is. Definition of analoge signals will be very less than [HDMI]. OK.

I temporarily do not have cable. Can I watch basic television with out a digital converter box? I have a 42" LCD HD TV. If so, how do I gain access?


For shure you are suppose to be able to grab some analog signal with standard antenna but you should check in your tv menu option for changing option "cable" for "Antenna" if it available but the force of the signal vary from different location.

I have just bought the Bush combi A322d hd ready lcd 22 inch tv/dvd. I have tried several times to tune it in but it doesn't tune in all the digital program properly that I had before using a standard tv...


Is your antenna "omni" or "uni" directional? "Omni" means you won't have to aim the antenna but "uni" antennas have to be pointed in the direction the nearest tower/s. You'll want to go to AntennaWeb.org and enter your address. This will show you locations and distances of TV towers in your area. My location is over 39 miles from any tower so I get virtually no reception with regular HD antenna. If your more than 20 miles you'll need to get a fairly high gain antenna and have to aim it in the direction of the TV tower.

Do we need to buy an antenna to get this TV ready for Digital TV?


LCD TV refers to the substance that creates the picture quality (it would be either LCD or Plasma or Tube) and HD refers to a crisp clear picture that can be attained. So your TV is an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) TV that is capable of receiving and displaying HD (High Definition) Picture.

What you need to check for is whether the TV has a built-in Tuner. This will either be SD (standard definition) TV Tuner or an HD TV Tuner. The box it came in will tell you or you may still have stickers on your TV.

If it has a built-in SD tuner you will be able to pick up HD channels but in a lower quality. In this case you will only need to plug the TV into a Wall-socket antenna or rabbit-ear antenna.

If it has a built-in HD Tuner you will be able to pick up HD Channels in full HD quaility picture. Simply by plugging the TV into a Wall-socket antenna or rabbit-ear antenna.

If your TV does NOT have a built-in TV-Tuner then this TV is clasified as "HD Ready". Which means that you have to purchase a Set Top Box (STB). you can get either HD or SD set top boxes. In this instance you will plug the cable from the wall socket into the STB then from the STB into the TV using either an HDMI cable (as long as your TV has an HDMI input) or through RCA cables which will be coloured Green, Blue and Red (i think red)

By the Way - best picture quality is from a wall-socket antenna.
HDMI = High Definition Multimedia Interface
STB = Set Top Box
High Definiton RCA cables will also be refered to as YPbPr/YCbCr (depending on equipment)
LCD = Liquid Crystal Display (the method used to make the picture on your TV screen)

If you have anymore questions, ask away.

My new tv only gets some channels and not others


Have you tried an amplified antenna? It's basically a regular antenna but includes an amplifier to help bring in weak stations. An out door antenna may also help. I live about 3 miles from a TV station and can't pick them up due to the insanely old apartment I live in.

Your TV is an "HD-Ready" television. What this means is that your TV is ready to accept HD input from an outside source, but doesn't have the ability to produce the content itself. It is a monitor and does not have a digital tuner. Without a digital tuner (or for cable a QAM tuner) you will not receive OTA broadcast HD.

You need to purchase a High Definition capable set-top converter box. The converter box will have HD component out and may have HDMI out, either will feed your HD Ready TV.
