No it doesn't. You must use a set top box.

Trutech 17 LCD TV/VCR Tuner

If the TV was purchased as recently as 2007, then chances are decent that it DOES have the ATSC (digital) tuner. HOWEVER, I cannot confirm this for you on my end with the amount of information supplied. (Remember to include as much information as possible when inquiring, such as model numbers!)


If your set was sold as a "monitor", or an "HDTV READY" or "High Definition READY" set then indeed it will NOT have an ATSC tuner. If it was sold as an "HDTV" or "DTV", then it SHOULD have a digital tuner. This is based on my experience as lead TV tech at a local repair shop.

Take a look in the menus, and see what channels appear when you attempt to scan for them (assuming you are using an over-the-air antenna). Almost everywhere in the US now stations are already transmitting concurrently in digital and analog, and if you can receive the digital channels, you have a digital tuner! You can sometimes tell by the aspect ratio (widescreen, particularly on new programming, during primetime; be aware that smaller screen sizes usually are not widescreen). You can also tell if any of the channels received use a decimal or hyphen such as "channel 6.1 or 6-2" If you see this type of naming convention, you most certainly DO have a digital tuner.

Otherwise, you might consider how much you paid for the set- If it only cost you $150 brand new, or was on clearance, you probably do NOT have a digital television. Expect to pay well in excess of this amount for a digital TV. Hope this helps!! please comment with any additional ??'s and I will respond further as necessary until we know for sure what you have going on. Thanks for asking!

Coaxial cable hook up

You have to buy a adaptor for coaxial to television antenna hook-up. One side is used to hook up the cable to and the other side is to hook up to you televisions antenna's screw hook-up. These adaptors can be bought in most electronic stores and you should be able to find them on line. Just use google for cable to television adaptors. I hope this helps you with your problem.

Code for use with Directv satellite remote control

Tried various blog comments and came up with one that semi-worked. For the above LCD TV DVD combo (Trutech Model PVS31170551) the code for directv is 10030. It allows you to control the TV portion of the LCD with the Directv remote but it does not control the DVD part of the LCD.
I'm 90% satisfied with the solution, thanks to the bloggers.
