SYLVANIA 6620LG TV - DTV??

I have a Sylvania 6620LG TV manufactured in June 2006. Do I need a DTV converter? Some websites say it is HDTV-ready, others say EDTV. Which is correct, and what is the difference?

The ;quick answer is YES, you will need a converter box to receive digital broadcasts. This set has only an analog tuner built-in. That is why it is HDTV "ready" (ready for you to add a tuner).

As for HDTV vs EDTV it is a matter of resolution. Your set is capable of EDTV resolution, which is better than SDTV (standard definition TV) but not quite as good as HDTV. With a digital tuner you will be able to view all digital programming, even HD, and it will look excellent, though not quite as sharp as a set with higher definition.

EDTV is a 16:9 capable progressive 480p TV that can display HD programming in the 480p format and always has an ATSC tuner. Standard def tv is 480i or interlaced, it shows 1/2 of the picture and then the other half in 1/30 of a second intervals, EDTV has 2x this rate so it looks more fluid in hi motion scenes. Just short of HD, sort of a HD downconverted picture.

I've got my Dish cable to show on my Sylvania SDTV CR202SL8, now I need to know how to get my Playstation 3 to show on the tv. I don't have the original remote, so I'm using the Dish remote.


your ps3 is probably sat to HDMI or SCART, to change this: turn off your ps3 and hold the powerbutton when your turning it on. this will cause the ps3 to change between HDMI and scart, thats probably why it wont find a source.

I have a sylvania 20'' edtv no tuner or picture from cable


Does the set have any audio/video jacks on the back? Have you tried hooking to those?

If the tuner is bad cable can be hooked via a box or even using a old vcr to the rear jacks===switching to that input and bypass the tv tuner.

It will also tell you if problem is with the tuner.

Let me know if you have questions.

I have a sylvania lcd tv that only stays on 1-2 minutes then it shuts itself off.


Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

Want to Know if my TV is a DTV


it most probably is DTV ready, try googeling some on the subject, but since its a LCD tv from 2006 its most likely to made with a digital tuner. Note : if you have cable or satelite ( dish networks, Direct Tv and so on ) you are allready watching digital TV and do not need a converter box.

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.
