Re: Digital Television

Check the back of the tv if there are at least two coaxial inputs on the back. They are the type of inputs for a standard cable that screws into the back of the tv and would look like they have threads on them. If your tv only has one coaxial input it probably is not DTV ready. Alternativley, use a search engine site (google, ask, yahoo etc.) type in the make and model number of the tv. Some websites go into detail as to how many inputs a tv has as well as what resolutions they support, dtv compatible, hd compatible etc.

Is this TV digital ready?

No, this TV does not appear to be digital ready.  There is no mention of digital capability in a review in eBay reviews.  You will need a DTV converter or cable box to view digital TV on the this set.

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.

Is the tv that I have bought about 6 years ago ready for DTV?

6 year old tv probably not digital ready. The converter box will work if tv is on channel 3 and you use a UHF antenna. Most converter box connections have 75 ohm connectors, your tv may have the round connector to accept the input signal. If you have screw on terminals on the tv you will have to go to Home Depot or Lowes and get a matching transformer to go between the tv and the converter box. UHF antenna can be made out of a coat hanger. Just make a circle clean the paint off ends and attach. Or just buy a digital booster antenna at WalMart.

Don't understand about digital and analog

Hi, The TV has an analog tuner only and so is not DTV ready. You will require a seperate set top box to receive digital programs with it. If you have brought the set recently it should have had an appropriate warning label on it. If not ,you may have some come back with the store which sold it.(depends on the country where purchased)

Digital ready?

That model is not DTV capable, however if you switch to Direct TV or Dish Network, then the receiver takes care of the conversion for you. Else, you will need the converter box.

Is it DVT ready?

You have an analog TV. If you are asking for the purpose of getting a DTV converter box, you only need it if you use antenna for signal. If you have cable or Satillite there is not need for the coverter box.
