To add to what MIKEY-MOORE wrote, OUR government was offering discount ($20 off a $40-$45) coupons on a digital converter box that you can use your original antenna ( I still use my original nineteen and 65 (1965) rabbit ears antenna) to receive the digital signals NOW being transmitted through the air. In order to receive the signals YOU MUST get the converter. GOTO any Radio Shack, Walmart, to acquire the converter box. You will need one for EVERY tv in your house. I have a HDTV (but not digital) and I had to buy 3 boxes.

Well it was all over the news for quite awhile. What you need is a converter box. I dont know if they are still doing it, but the government was offering discount coupons on the boxes. There is no longer an antenna you can use. Period. Hope it helps. Look up DTVtransition.com

Why can't I get reception on my TruTech tv model DW19TT even after plugging in a Phillips digital indoor tv antenna


If the antenna is working and you are not receiving a signal, then you could have a bad tuner, use a tuner from a VCR , connect the ant to the VCR and go from the VCR with Video cables and go to the Video input on the TV and put your TV in Video mode. That will work.

Will not pickup local hd channels


In order to p/u local channels, you need an external antenna.

Just like the kind grandpa had on the top of his house,,,,

The tru-Tech is a low cost / low feature tv and may not have the required circuits to convert antenna broadcast signals to a video / audio signal.

Does my Trutech PLV16190 require a digital converter box?


Hi, Please don't shoot the messenger, you asked but unfortunately the answer is yes. Your tv has an NTSC tuner which is an analog tuner, Sorry. But this should answer your question.

Hi! I posted a few days ago about my elderly neighbors TV being disconnected from Dish and now she gets no signal on all channels. She has a TruTech Model (from back of TV) 008-09-0119. I disconnected the...


What kind of antenna is she using? If she is using an Over The Air antenna that was supplied by Dish it would be best to buy another type of antenna.
Please post back with her antenna type and the zip code you live in so I can help you further.

Yellow?


The official website for this item is http://1800customersupport.com/trutech. Try emailing them, or call them at 1-888-252-6252. Trutech is the store brand for Target stores, so many different companies make their products. This website isn't the official site for ALL Trutech products, just some of them, like this 19" LCD TV/DVD combo.
