Hi, I currently have Time Warner Digital Cable and I have the Broksonic TV referenced here.  Will I have to buy a new TV when the transition from analog to digital occurs, or will I be OK since I have digital cable?

Line floats from bottom of screen to top. Is it the direct cable hook up that causes that to happen.

Hello bbarnell821,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

Your issue is from the tuner within the TV. The new cable standard is Digital, and your TV has an Analog tuner. Visit your local Best Buy or the link I have provided below, to purchase a converter that will convert the digital backwards to analog for your TV Set.

Have a great day!

Is this model digital? My cable company tells me they will not transmit to non digital sets without additional box. Do I need this?

This TV is an older model with an NTSC tuner (OTA and CATV (analog). You will need a set top box with the digital cable system.

The law didn't require ATSC tuners in 13" TVs until 2007 and the TV was listed at Amazon in 2002. The law requiring the digital transition didn't pass until 2006.

I wish that I had better news for you.

Wish I knew the answer ... I have the same problem after switching to Dish Network (Satellite). It worked fine with Time Warner Cable. I'm suspecting the signal over Dish is analog (NTSC) which is not supported by this particular TV. I wish I still had the box and receipt!

Magnavox 27mdtr20 17

The Magnavox 27mdtr20/17 is a standard def. television produced in 2003 by the Philips-Magnavox Corporation. This particular model was conceptualized long before DTV was an option, and much further before Digital Television Broadcasts were considered a viable option for our current current communications problems.

You will need a DTV box IF:
A) You use an antenna (roof top or otherwise) to watch television

You will not need a DTV converter box IF:
A) You subscribe to cable services, either analog or digital
B) You subscribe to satalite services

For more information on the reasons behind the DTV transition, as well as getting valuable cupons from the federal government to help subsidize the cost of a DTV box, please visit this site:

I hope this helped,

Is this an Analog TV? Does it have a picture tube and not an LCD or plasma screen? Most likely this is a Analog TV.

If it is an Analog TV (and I would bet that it is), then no, it does not have a digital (QAM) tuner to pick up DTV broadcasts. The fact that it has a VCR also indicates that its an Analog TV.

If you are picking up your TV signals from an outside antenna and not cable, then yes, you will need a converter box to convert the new digital signals to Analog so that you can continue to use your TV set.

If you are using cable to receive your channels, the cable company already provides the conversion for you and your TV will continue to work as before.

The government is giving out coupons to help consumers defray the costs of purchaing a converter box. The following sites are good places to obtain more information.

Good luck!

Digital tuner

I don't have this unit, but guessing from it's description on, I'd figure that it is analog-only. So you would need a converter.

Here's the thing: all U.S. broadcasters are transmitting the new DTV signals NOW - in addition to the old analog signals. If a TV has a digital tuner, you should be able to use it now to see those DTV signals. Check your setup menu for options like ATSC.
One hint, the new signals use channel designations like 7.1 or 7-1 or 7-1HD. And some stations will have virtual channels, i.e., 7.1, 7.2, 7.3. If you can't get your TV to scan channels and show the numbers in that fashion, it isn't using a digital tuner.
