Question about Panasonic PT-47WX53 47" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Unable to receive US channels on my HDTV Projection Monitor

I have a tower antennae and recently the US channels switched over to digital transmission and I lost all the US the channels.I still receive Canadian Channels
I would like to to know if I need a DTV converter box to enable the US channels. I was under the impression that my present antennae should work without a converter box since it is an HDTV. I would appreciate some help as to what I must do.

My HDTV Panasonic Projection Monitor model number is PT-47WX53.

Thanks Andy

What antenna works on Toshiba 20VL43U? I purchased Mediasonic Homeworx HW110AN Super Thin Indoor HDTV Antenna - 25 Miles Range.


I recently went through a whole song & dance about HDTV antennas for my RV. I bought two different directional high-gain antennas, only to find that they wouldn't even receive signals at my home! When I'd reorient the antenna and initiate another channel search, I would sometimes get ONE or TWO channels... then I'd lose them when I'd try to reorient the antenna.
What I figured out is that DIRECTIONAL HDTV ANTENNAS ARE, ESSENTIALLY, WORTHLESS. There is really no way of knowing precisely which direction the broadcast towers are and, even if you knew, they will not all usually be clustered in one small area... they may be scattered here & there around your area.
What I eventually did is bought an OMNIDIRECTIONAL HIGH GAIN ANTENNA, which was no more expensive than the DIRECTIONAL antennas I tried. Did a channel search, and got almost all of the channels in my area!
Any omnidirectional HDTV antenna will work with your television, but I'd recommend buying the one with the highest GAIN (expressed in "dB" or "dBi" with the highest number being best). Try to find a POWERED antenna with an internal SIGNAL AMPLIFIER.
Also, if you live far away from broadcast towers as I do, you may wish to consider adding an additional SIGNAL AMPLIFIER as well.

Digital channels antenna


If you have a HD TV then you do not need a converter box, however you will still need an antennae to receive the channels. the antennae can be hooked up directly to you're HD tv.

RCA HD52W59 HDTV Plug in digital antenna into air antenna input then run channel scan =0 channels What should I do next??? Mike


Make sure you are connecting the digital antenna to the digital antenna input on the back of the set, then rescan. Most over the air Tv signals migrated to digital transmission and therefore the analog input is mostly for older analog devices. If you still do not get any channels, then you need to make sure the antenna you are using is rated for reception in your area. You can check for proper antenna size and channels available here,http://www.antennaweb.org/aw/welcome.aspx

Your LCD has a digital tuner and should receive free channels using an indoor antenna but it would receive more channels if you have an outside antenna, depending on where you're.
If you are closer to a transmission tower the indoor antenna should work fine.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

If you're in the US, you will no longer get antenna signals because the US has recently switched to digital. The TV you have does not have a digital tuner and you'll need to purchase a digital converter box that converts a band of analog signal to digital.

Sorry to say, your HDTV-Ready - Requires separate receiver to view HDTV signals. SDTV (Standard Definition) - has built-in digital receivers/decoders and do not require the purchase of any separate components in order to display digital signals. It provides lower image quality than EDTV or HDTV, but higher image quality than analog TV. SDTV is displayed using an aspect ratio of 4:3. I hope this helps and good luck.

Need help locating a box to make my TV receive true HDTV


You Dont need one your set is HD. So when the switch happens you are good to go. The only TVs that are going to need converter boxes is those who do not have HD or only have antenna.

NO HDTV


There are many variables here that could cause the problem. I can receive a few local HD channels ( within about 60 miles ) on my 57H94. I am not aware of any "HD specific" settings- it's all part of the receiving circuits in the TV. The first thing I would look at is to be sure you have a secure antenna connection. Then be sure you have selected the correct antenna input on the TV (there are two). HD channels, as an example will show up as 10-1, 10-2, etc. Most TVs have different sensitivity thresholds, regardless of size. Usually digital signals, including HD, are either there or not. In most cases if a TV picks up a decent analogue signal, a digital set should receive the digital signal, including available HD channels, as well. If you are going to use an antenna, rather than cable or satellite, try to get the best antenna you can afford, that will meet your physical requirements ( indoor / outdoor,etc.). Keep in mind that not all digital TV signal are HD. All of our local stations in this area transmit a digital signal, but true HD broadcasts remain variable. I hope this has helped in some way-Good Luck!

DTV connection


Have you tried http://www.antennaweb.org/aw/Address.aspx? This will show you the location of the HD broadcast towers for your local stations and my recommendation would be to use an outdoor antenna if you can. Picking up the reception is definitely about pointing the antenna in the direction of the towers.
