Re: DTV????????????????????????

From the side of the carton in which it came:
CONSUMER ALERT: This television receiver has only an analog broadcast tuner and will require a converter box after February 17, 2009 to receive over-the-air broadcasts with an antenna because of the U.S.'s transition to digital broadcasting. Analog-only TVs should continue to work as before with cable and satellite TV services, gaming consoles, VCRs, DVD players, and similar products. For more information, call the Federal Communications Commission at 1-888-225-5322 (TTY: 1-888-835-5322), or visit the commission’s digital-television Web site at:
The only other thing I could add to this, is that the Post Office in 2009 will get the task of handing out $40.00 coupons to to anyone wishing to purchase a converter.

I have a sylvania 20'' edtv no tuner or picture from cable

Does the set have any audio/video jacks on the back? Have you tried hooking to those?

If the tuner is bad cable can be hooked via a box or even using a old vcr to the rear jacks===switching to that input and bypass the tv tuner.

It will also tell you if problem is with the tuner.

Let me know if you have questions.

Is the L20V36 zenith ready for the new tv changes

Having looked at the specs for this TV, it would indicate that to receive digital pictures, you would indeed need an external set-top-box, as the tuner in the TV is a standard NTSC tuner, not a DTV tuner.

Dose my tv (Hisense TL3000) is hd-tv ready

Not all units were fitted with the DTV tuner before the switch over occurred. you set should have an insignia that sates that it is DTV ready. if this insignia is not on the box or actual set, you will need a converter box to receive this DTV signal.

Built in tuner not working since digital transition

I do not know if you will get this message but if you do. Here goes. The protron PLTV3250 does indeed have a digital tuner that can be used with an over the air antenna. You need to push "source" on the remote until DTV is selected. With this selected and your coaxial cable from your antenna hooked up to the digital connector (not analog) on the back of this tv you can then press Menu and you will see a totally different looking menu that you are probably not used to seeing and then from there you can do an auto scan for the digital channels and it works great. I have rabbit ears hooked up to this Protron PLTV3250 and this has a beautiful picture. Far better than the picture I get from just the standard digital Directv receiver. You do not need a seperate digital tuner box to use with this TV. It does indeed have an ATSC digital tuner and it works great. You probably are selecting Source "TV" in the menu and that is not what you select for this TV to use the Digital Tuner. You need to select DTV from the source menu. Good luck and please let me know if you already knew this or if this helped you. Thanks, Tom

Want to Know if my TV is a DTV

it most probably is DTV ready, try googeling some on the subject, but since its a LCD tv from 2006 its most likely to made with a digital tuner. Note : if you have cable or satelite ( dish networks, Direct Tv and so on ) you are allready watching digital TV and do not need a converter box.

Don't know if it's digital transmission ready

If the set was made in the last 2 years it should have the digital tuner.

About Sylvania TV

Hi malumbender,
Your tv dosn't have a digital tuner, in order to recieve OTA (over the air) digital signals you will need a Digital Converter Box.
Here is a link to a government website for coupons for the box. The coupons are for $40 off the purchase price of the box. There is a waiting list but they will come available as other coupons expire.

here is another site for antenna and channel line up.

I hope this helps and please rate this solution, please keep in mind that a "Thanks For Trying" rating is negative.

DTV Converter Box

If there is no digital tuner built into the tv or unless you subscribe to Cable TV or Satellite service you will still need a converter to view tv with rabbit ears (air broadcast).

Good luck!

The ;quick answer is YES, you will need a converter box to receive digital broadcasts. This set has only an analog tuner built-in. That is why it is HDTV "ready" (ready for you to add a tuner).

As for HDTV vs EDTV it is a matter of resolution. Your set is capable of EDTV resolution, which is better than SDTV (standard definition TV) but not quite as good as HDTV. With a digital tuner you will be able to view all digital programming, even HD, and it will look excellent, though not quite as sharp as a set with higher definition.
