As long as you have a ATSC tuner in the set you can use rabbit ears or an outside antenna like years ago. Look up your model number with Bing or Google and find a site that displays all the technical specs and look for equipped with ATSC tuner for Air signal.

If you don't have that tuner then you will have to have a cable hd box with component outputs, they take care of that.

How to hook up vcr when using a cable box


That will depend upon what you want to do. If you plan to record to the VCR from the cable box, then the cable box will need to directly connect to the VCR, then the output of the VCR is connected to the TV. Unfortunately, most VCRs are analog, not digital, so you will lose HD capability (if you have it) trying to connect this way. You also cannot record one show while watching something else (you will need to be tuned to the channel you are recording). If you want to simply use the VCR to view recorded tapes, then connect the cable box to the TV as per the cable company recommendations, and then make a second connection for the VCR. Of course, your TV will need appropriate and available jacks on the rear to do this. It is difficult to give specifics without knowing the models of the cable box, VCR, and TV.

Our cable company has upgraded to digital channels. This tv has the right equipment in it and should find the digital channels but doesn't. When I first did a digital channel search it grouped channels...


the cable company switched to digital just like everyone else, but that should not effect your viewing, they convert the channels back to basic cable so you can see the without having to do anything. If you want to watch "over the air" digital tv you need an outside antenna and television that can recieve digital signals, or put a digital convertor box on your set, but none of this makes any sense if you have cable because you are already getting the same channels over the cable.

My tv is attached to a cable inpt but no cable box i am able to watch all cable channels by switching tv chanels,is the inpt digital or analog


The signal you are viewing is an analog signal.

The cable companies take the signals for your basic channels and resend them through the cable as analog so the customers that still plug the cable direct to their TV can still get some programming without the added costs of digital cable boxes on every TV.

This option will be slowly phased out over time but for now it is available.

Do i need a digital box-i have your 27 '' analog/digital tvmy cable co is 'pushing digital box (Shaw) thanks loads


Sounds like my cable company. I told the service guy off. I told him how the cable company is a big rip off

With that said some what you do or will need a box later. to use pay-prview or to watch HBO Showtime or a movie channel you pay for and cable channels you need a digital box.

Do you need a digial box with what you wrote you all ready has a D/A tuner bulit in your TV. Ask your do I get all the channels I watch without a Digi box if you answered Y than No you don't need a box if you see ads for a new channel you want than yes you will need a box. Call your cable comp. and ask for a channel line up. to see what channels you can get with and without a box.

Sorry to write so much but thats the only way I can answer you. I'm in the same boat I called the cable company and they told me I still needed a box I watch movies on the weekends. Well any way I Hope I Help you a LOADS.

How can i watch cable tv.


I assume you are not trying to steal service, that you just want to use your cable signal on a TV without using a cable box. The NTSC (analog) and clear QAM (digital) signals will work on many recent TVs. Encrypted signal require a box from your cable company. BTW, the cable company are not allowed to encrypt local channels but will certainly do it for all premium channels and may do it for all digital channels except the locals. This assumes you bought a TV with QAM.

Digital converter box


A digital converter box will only allow an analog TV to to operate in analog when using a stick antenna... If you have cable or sat Tv then you won't need the converter because those companies already do the conversion for you.
If you have a HD Tv than by all means it will get HD without a converter using a stick antenna and several stations are available or will be available on cable and sat with extra fees...
Hope this helps!

TV CABEL SETUP


Not legally no...

I used to install cable for the cable company and no, each region has there own converter box, and cables hq needs to know about the code on the back of the box in order for it to work.

Digital cable only works when the cable company activates your converter box, so you have to pay for it one way or another.
