Re: Is it digital or analog

You can buy a RF to AV converter at wal-mart or radio shack. Most Standard televisions being sold today are digital TV compatable. But for the older ones Radio Shack does sell converter boxes. I believe Best Buy does as well.

How do i set tv up with regular antenna

You are not stating what type of TV you have. If it is an older CRT or even some older LCD flat screens, it may only have an analog tuner. All TV stations today are broadcasting digital signals and if you do not have a digital tuner in the set, you will need an adapter box to use an antenna with the set. They were widely sold around the time of the analog-to-digital transition, but are harder to find anymore.

I was watching my television and all of a sudden the picture went snowy.

Only the older Analog type televisions get snow from lack of signal. The modern Digital TV gets pixilated. like missing pieces.
And on re-reading the title of your question, it does say CRT...... As in Cathode Ray Tube. (I thought they were all gone now, all around the world) Anyhow.... has your country switched off it's analog tv transmissions. This would give you snow. Because there is no Transmission. Seems unlikely they would stop transmission in the middle of what your watching.
Do you have a Digital Set Top Box feeding the TV? This would pick up Digital TV transmissions and convert them to your old CRT TV Screen. Knowing this should help you diagnose the problem.
Check the antenna input to your digital box and connections from the STB to your TV. They probably use a Yellow video cable and a Red & White (Sound Left & Right). You didn't mention if sound was still there?
Perhaps someone has pressed the remote control and the TV has jumped to one of the Antenna Channel inputs rather than the Video input (Yellow Video input)?
Might be that Simple.....
Good Luck

I have a standerd tv and i want my kids to use it and watch netfliex, how do i connect it

  1. A digital television adapter (DTA), or digital-to-analog converter [set-top box], or commonly known as a converter box, it is a television tuner that receives a digital television (DTV) transmission, and converts the digital signal into an analog signal that can be received and displayed on an analog television set.

Can not tune tv since change over

The KV-32FS100 only has an analog tuner (NTSC). Unless there is a low-power analog station still broadcasting in your area, you will not be able to watch OTA stations. (I've got one in my area that barely comes in.) If your local cable still sends an analog signal, you won't need a set top box to watch that subscribed service.

Otherwise, you need a set top box to watch TV. A digital to analog converter (the boxes that were available with the government coupon before the switch over) will give you over the air stations. The basic models only provide SD output; there are a few HD models available. Otherwise, you can use a satellite reciever, cable box (for digital cable service), or something like the Boxee or Sling with tuner. (There are a few different models of the Boxee; one added a tuner with a USB dongle. The newest model of the Boxee has the ATSC tuner built in.)

Note: OTA digital signal quality is either a strong enough signal for the tuner or no signal will be present. You need to point the antenna in the correct direction to receive the signal from your local transmitters. The type of antenna and its placement will also change the number of watchable channels. You can use or to get more information. Antennaweb assumes an outdoor antenna but gives a conservative list of stations. If the signal is split to several devices, you may need an amplifier to get a watchable signal. (Sometimes amplifiers fail and you won't receive any stations, so test without the splitter or amplifier by using a direct cable to one TV.)

I hope this helps.

This TV only has an analog tuner. You will need a set top box (digital to analog converter) to watch OTA TV.

I have the Phillips Magnavox 20MT133S and my cable TV provider is switching to an all digital format. Will I require the use of their converter box for analog TVs? In otherwords, is this TV a digital TV?

Hello David,

Unfortunately this is not a digital TV, so you will need a digital cable box in order to watch the digital format cable channels on this set.

Hope this helps. If you have any further questions, please let me know.

How do we scan/program in local tv channels. We bought an external antenna, but get no picture. Typically, there is a protocol for scanning channels into the set. Model is Sansui TVS2746B, and the set was...

Okay, does this tv have a built in DIGITAL tuner? Most tv's only have an analog tuner. You can tell the difference while you are changing the channels. If the channel indicates 2.1 or 2.2 and so forth, it is on a digital channel mode. If you change the channel and it indicated 2, 3, 4, etc. it is analog. If it has digital capability change the input until you see 2.1, 3.4 etc. If you cycle through all the inputs on the tv like, input 1 (TV) input 2(DVD) input 3(HDMI) and so forth and you never see the digital channel you most likely do not have a digital tuner. You will need to purchase a digital converter which will convert it to analog and you can watch it by placing you tv on analog channel 3 just like the old vcr's. Hope this helps and please don't forget to rate this solution.

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.

Is this TV digital ready

According to

How can I be sure that I am buying a digital TV (DTV)?
By law, beginning March 1, 2007, all television reception devices (including TVs, VCRs, DVRs, etc.) imported into the U.S. or shipped in interstate commerce must contain a digital tuner. Retailers may continue to sell analog-only devices from existing inventory, but must prominently display on or near the analog-only device a Consumer Alert label with this advisory:

What is the difference between “Integrated” DTVs and DTV or HDTV “Monitors”?
An Integrated DTV set is a television with a built-in digital tuner (also referred to as “a DTV”). A digital tuner is also sometimes called a DTV decoder or DTV receiver. If you have an Integrated DTV, you will not need any additional equipment, with the exception of a broadcast antenna (either a rooftop antenna or “rabbit ears” connected to the set), to receive over-the-air digital broadcast programming. Integrated DTVs can also receive and display analog broadcast programming, so you can continue watching analog broadcasts.
In contrast, a DTV Monitor is not capable of receiving digital broadcast programming without additional equipment; it is simply a display device without the processing capability for DTV reception. A digital or HD set-top box must be connected between the antenna and the monitor to receive and display over-the-air digital or HD programming.
If you have a digital or HD “Monitor” and would like to purchase a digital or HD set-top box to view over-the-air programming, confirm with your retailer that the set-top box is compatible with your Monitor.
