Question about Televison & Video
I have the Trutech PLV31199S1 and I was trying to get it connected now that we've switched over to digital but none of the rabbit ears I have work. I get a frozen, glitchy picture and not much or no audio. I wanted to make sure that this model does have a Digital Tuner, I'm assuming it does since I am getting some picture and when I look on the menu it says DTV Signal is bad, but I wanted to make sure. And I was wondering if anyone had any possible solutions.

Is this an Analog TV? Does it have a picture tube and not an LCD or plasma screen? Most likely this is a Analog TV.
If it is an Analog TV (and I would bet that it is), then no, it does not have a digital (QAM) tuner to pick up DTV broadcasts. The fact that it has a VCR also indicates that its an Analog TV.
If you are picking up your TV signals from an outside antenna and not cable, then yes, you will need a converter box to convert the new digital signals to Analog so that you can continue to use your TV set.
If you are using cable to receive your channels, the cable company already provides the conversion for you and your TV will continue to work as before.
The government is giving out coupons to help consumers defray the costs of purchaing a converter box. The following sites are good places to obtain more information.

It does have a tuner built into it.
It is not a hd or digital tuner.

I don't have this unit, but guessing from it's description on Amazon.com, I'd figure that it is analog-only. So you would need a converter.
Here's the thing: all U.S. broadcasters are transmitting the new DTV signals NOW - in addition to the old analog signals. If a TV has a digital tuner, you should be able to use it now to see those DTV signals. Check your setup menu for options like ATSC.
One hint, the new signals use channel designations like 7.1 or 7-1 or 7-1HD. And some stations will have virtual channels, i.e., 7.1, 7.2, 7.3. If you can't get your TV to scan channels and show the numbers in that fashion, it isn't using a digital tuner.
