I didn't see a yes or no answer for the problem. That's all I needed and I couldn't find it. How is this helpful? A yes or a no is all that's required.

Setting up tv and keep getting no signal. Do I need a dtv box?


If it's a new TV, no, DTV box not needed.
If it was made prior to 2009, then you may need the box.
If it was made way before 2009, get a box.

Can I receive a digital signal and if so, how?


I'm pretty sure this TV already has an NTSC/ATSC/QAM tuner in there, and should need no converter box whatsover... I say this because I own one...

Question about going digital in Feb 2009


if you have Comcast you should be fine. The only TVs that need converter boxes are the old fashion ones with the bunny ear antennas.

No, unless you are receiving over cable or satellite. You will need a DTV converter box if you are using an antenna to receive Over The Air television signals. The Proscan has an analog only tuner, so the ATSC (digital) signals will not be visible.

Dtv ready?


Usually on the back of the set there will be a hookup for digital tuner. To get the converter box before Feb 2009 go to http://www.dtv2009.gov

Sanyo DS31590 and converter box


I just checked the owners manual online. Looks like this model only has an NTSC analog tuner. No ATSC digital tuner built in.

If you use cable or satellite TV services, the digital converters won't help you. The coupon-eligible ones are strictly for use with a traditional antenna. If this is your situation, ignore the remainder of this message.

If you use a regular TV antenna with this TV, then, yes, you will need a converter box. FYI, the Insignia model at Best Buy and the Zenith at Circuit City, and elsewhere (radio shack) have gotten good reviews from early purchasers. More converter box models will be available in a few months time.

If your current reception with your antenna is poor (snowy), you may have problems receiving the new DTV signals. If not, you should be pleasantly surprised with the quality of the DTV signals - and the extra "virtual" channels. Try the converter box using the RCA video and audio inputs, for a slightly better picture than with the coaxial cable inputs.

Good Luck

DTV Question


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.
