Is this an Analog TV? Does it have a picture tube and not an LCD or plasma screen? Most likely this is a Analog TV.

If it is an Analog TV (and I would bet that it is), then no, it does not have a digital (QAM) tuner to pick up DTV broadcasts. The fact that it has a VCR also indicates that its an Analog TV.

If you are picking up your TV signals from an outside antenna and not cable, then yes, you will need a converter box to convert the new digital signals to Analog so that you can continue to use your TV set.

If you are using cable to receive your channels, the cable company already provides the conversion for you and your TV will continue to work as before.

The government is giving out coupons to help consumers defray the costs of purchaing a converter box. The following sites are good places to obtain more information.

How do I hook up a digital to analog converter box to my 13" phillips TV/VCR COMBO. It does not have an antenna on TV


There should be a cable connector on the back of the TV.

If there are two VHF screws instead you will need to buy a unit from Radio Shack called a 300 ohm to 75 ohm transformer.

I have a Sylvanis VCR/DVDcombo and a Standard TV.


The converter box receives hte digital signals and converts them into either channel 3 or 4, or into direct video (red,white,yel). The output of the converter box must go into the VCR input for recording to work. Before the conversion, the tuner of hte VCR would receive the RF signal the same as the TV. The tuner inside the VCR is an analog tuner not digital, so it needs the conversion too. Most converters will provide both the A/V signal (R/Wh/Y) and RF (coax connector).

Hope this helps,
Dan

Digital converter


If you recieve your signal on this TV over the Air (Rabbit Ears) then Yes you will need a digital Converter for this TV. If you are hooked up to Cable or a Satalite Dish, your TV will continue to work without the converter box.

Magnavox 27mdtr20 17


The Magnavox 27mdtr20/17 is a standard def. television produced in 2003 by the Philips-Magnavox Corporation. This particular model was conceptualized long before DTV was an option, and much further before Digital Television Broadcasts were considered a viable option for our current current communications problems.

You will need a DTV box IF:
A) You use an antenna (roof top or otherwise) to watch television

You will not need a DTV converter box IF:
A) You subscribe to cable services, either analog or digital
B) You subscribe to satalite services

For more information on the reasons behind the DTV transition, as well as getting valuable cupons from the federal government to help subsidize the cost of a DTV box, please visit this site:

I hope this helped,

Do I need a dtv digital converter box for my Symphonic SC313D 13 inch tv?


Pretty much a hoax on those diverter boxes. People ran out and bought them thinking that won't have reception. I have many years in maintenance and several years in nursing homes with different tv's in every room. Not once have I needed a box to pick up channels with or without cable. I myself get 16 channels with rabbit ears and thats enough for me. And I do own a combo as well and it has simple antenna and does me just fine. Depending on your location, the old tv antennas we use to put on our houses...they work amazing! Might be able to snag one on a freecycle or craigslist site. Good luck! :)

Dtv for 2009


The key is that you are on Directv. So the answer is no. You can't even use the converter boxes with Directv. They are only for watching programs using regular TV antennas.

FYI, based on the online manual, this model TV does NOT have an ATSC tuner built in, even though it has digital audio out. It's only NTSC.
