Re: Digital reception

Check the menu screen to see if you have an option to program digital channels . If not the answer is no . If you are on cable or satelite then you need not worry as the only people who will be affected by the digital change over will be if your on outdoor antenna or rabbitt ears only with your tv. Your cable and satelite providers will not change you over on feb 19th 2009 . Everythung will be the same . Good luck

Is this a HD ready tv if not what would help?

Based on the specs for the TV, the DS31520 is not an HD-ready display. It is at best an SD display with an NTSC (analog tuner). (Picture resolution: 330 lines, video input 660 lines) OTA ATSC signals are 480i (SD), 720p or 1080i (HD) where those are the number of horizontal lines of pixels. The manual is available here: .

This is a fine TV for analog cable or OTA TV with a standard digital to analog converter box (which only give SD output). The TV has composite video and S-video inputs (again limited to SD).

For HD, you will need a new TV screen that can display more rows of data.

I wish that I had better news for you.

Will my TV receive digital signals without an external digital converter?

Hi, John.
No your tv is an older standard definition tv with an NTSC tuner..that was the old type tuner for analog stations.
You will need to get an ATSC digital tuner in order to tune in digital broadcasts.

Luckily, you don't have to spend hundreds to get one.
WalMart and several other stores carry inexpensive digital tuner converters that are in the $30-$40 range.

I hope this helps you out on getting stations picked up, as without the converter, your tv would only be good for hooking up a dvd player to it, or for video games.

Good luck tio you, and have a good day.

Sanyo tv model it an HD tv?

You can view the specifications here:
Sanyo DS31520
I found no mention of the needed ATSC digital tuner so you need to acquire a converter box to receive broadcast signals after the changeover. Cable and satellite reception are not affected.
I reviewed the available converters and chose the Zinwell ZAT-970.

Digital capable

You will only need the converter box if you use an antenna. If you have a cable tv service, they will do the conversion on their end.
