Question about Panasonic Televison & Video
You will need some sort of digital (ATSC) to analog (NTSC) OTA signal converter (set-top box) with an antenna. The Panasonic TH-37PW5 only has NTSC (in the US) or PAL (UK) tuners. There may be a few low power NTSC stations still broadcasting in the U.S. However, you need to be close to their transmitter to receive the signal. You can use one of the original converter that were available with the government coupon. There are some newer models available. Look at your choices carefully. You will need a converter with RF, composite video or component video output. Any model with only HDMI out will require an additional converter connected between the set-top box and the TV.
The specifications for the TH-37PW5 are available on page 38 of the manual. This is available from Panasonic here: ftp://ftp.panasonic.com/television/om/th-42pw5_en_om.pdf .
I hope this helps.
