Question about JVC AV-27D201 27" TV

1 Answer

DTV Question No problem but need to know if it has a Digital tuner, in advance of the DTV rollout in early 2009. Can't seem to identify that info anywhere. It's my mother's TV so I'm trying to figure out whether or not she needs a converter box, as she gets TV over-the-air via roof antenna. Thanks!

    I guess it doesn't matter anymore, as Verizon ran FiOS to her house in 2008, so now she's good to go for DTV. Thanks for the info!

Based on the features described by JVC and the technical details listed on Amazon.com the answer is no, no digital ATSC tuner, just NTSC analog.

So yes, she'll need a converter box for the ATSC over the air signals.

Tv Tuners


Hey jp62388,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, this model TV should have a built-in NTSC/ATSC and QAM tuner. These should allow you to receive locally broadcast digital TV signals without the use of a set-top box or digital converter box.

If you're concerned about your TV's specifications, the most important thing you'll need to look for is a built-in or integrated ATSC tuner. NTSC is the old analog standard that is to be phased out in early 2009, while ATSC is the new digital standard that is to be used within the United States and Canada as NTSC’s replacement.

Should you have any other questions or concerns, I'd strongly suggest checking out the FAQ section of the federal government’s official DTV transition website:

http://www.dtv.gov/index.html

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

IS MY TV DIGITAL READY


Its tuner is NTSC, which will not tune in digital stations. I didn't see a DTV tuner mentioned anywhere on the specs, so don't think it will work. I myself have one and will soon purchase a converter box with the $40 rebate from the government.

DVD recorder with NTSC tuner


Hey Whormd,

If neither your DVD recorder nor your TV has a digital (ATSC) tuner, they will not be able to directly receive over-the-air broadcasts after the DTV conversion is completed without the assistance of a set-top converter box. Please keep in mind that the official analog broadcasting cut-off date does vary by country. In the U.S. this date is February 17th, 2009, and that Canadian TV stations have until August 31st 2011 to make the transition.

Please also note that you will need one converter box for each device with an analog tuner, in order to watch one program while recording another. One converter box would need to be connected to the DVR, while the second converter box would need to be connected to the TV itself.

For more information, I would strongly suggest checking out the FAQ sections of the official DTV websites established by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Canadian Radio/Television Telecommunications Commission (CRTC):

http://www.dtv.gov/index.html (FCC)
http://www.crtc.gc.ca/ (CRTC)

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Is my tv digital compatible or not


https://www.dtv2009.gov/FAQ.aspx What you need to know is whether your TV set has something called a “digital tuner” already built in. If it does, your TV set will work after February 17, 2009. The best way to determine whether your TV set has a digital tuner built in is to consult your owner’s manual. If that’s not possible, you may be able to look up information about your TV set on the manufacturer’s website. Or, you can take an up-close look at your TV set. In any case, you’re trying to find out if your set has an input connection labeled “digital input” or “ATSC” (for Advanced Television Systems Committee, which is the DTV format).

Here are some general guidelines that may help:

TV set made before 1998 was a traditional “analog” set. If you bought a big-screen, projection TV between 1998 and 2004, it may have a built-in digital tuner inside. But chances aren’t great. Only a limited percentage of projection TV sets (and generally only those 42 inches in diameter or larger) included digital tuners before 2004.

If you purchased a new TV set since 2004, your chances of having a built-in digital tuner improve dramatically. Starting in 2004, many of the TV sets sold at popular electronics stores feature digital tuners that will work after February 17, 2009. But it’s not a sure thing. Even some of the newer TV sets are purely display monitors that lack the internal circuitry needed to pick up digital broadcasts. Usually these sets have been advertised as “HD-ready” or “HDTV monitor” sets. That means they can display digital and high-definition signals, but they need help getting those signals in the first place. You’ll still need a special converter or a cable TV connection. Hope this info above helps. Also, check your manual, and if you don't have it some manufacturers, (Philips does for some models) offer the manual on their websites.

DTV????????????????????????


From the side of the carton in which it came:
CONSUMER ALERT: This television receiver has only an analog broadcast tuner and will require a converter box after February 17, 2009 to receive over-the-air broadcasts with an antenna because of the U.S.'s transition to digital broadcasting. Analog-only TVs should continue to work as before with cable and satellite TV services, gaming consoles, VCRs, DVD players, and similar products. For more information, call the Federal Communications Commission at 1-888-225-5322 (TTY: 1-888-835-5322), or visit the commission’s digital-television Web site at: www.dtv.gov.
The only other thing I could add to this, is that the Post Office in 2009 will get the task of handing out $40.00 coupons to to anyone wishing to purchase a converter.
