I purchased a Philips 25" TV, model #24PT6341/37 about 18 months ago. I am connected to our local cable service with digital signal. With the new digital signal requirements coming into effect in Feb 09, will I have to purchase a converter box in order to continue viewing programs offered by our local cable provider or will I have to buy a new HDTV? My email is: email@example.com. Thank you.

You need to get a connection from a local cable or wireless service with a set top box to be connected to the input. Please check with your local operator and see if the set top box is needed for the digital feed. Otherwise you might need a dish with the LNB to be used to the TV. Digital tuner means that the tuner is working to scan and memorising the full band width of the channels with digital processing and thus faster and crisp. Check the details of the TV from a forum: http://reviews.cnet.com/direct-view-tvs-crt/philips-32pt9100d-32-crt/1707-6481_7-31473699.html
If you actually have the Zenith model TV (B25A24Z), the trouble is not in your set. This model has only an analog tuner, and what it sounds like you are describing is digital pixellation. This is what happens with a digital-to-analog converter box when it gets a weak signal, with rain fade or heavy snow on a satellite dish antenna, or when a digital cable system has some signal problems. The converter equipment locks the last complete frame (or breaks up into blocks and freezes) and the sound is muted.
You'll need to look for the cause of your trouble in whatever is feeding the TV. If you have a digital converter box for off-the-air broadcasts, make sure you have a good antenna and all the connections are tight. If you have satellite TV service or digital cable service, you might need to contact your service provider for help in troubleshooting and fixing the trouble.
No,all regular tube tvs are analog tv.Must have a converter box hook up to get a free over the air DTV,or must have pay tv services like Cables,Satalite,or Telicoms signals they convert DTV back to analog signal for ur tube tv.
IF I understand you correctly, the VCR, Satellite, etc is connected using an RF modulator/coaxial cable wire going into Antenna in
IF this is true, then you have an AV IN port (red, yellow, white) free on the back. Just connect the red, yellow, white from the out of the DVD - you can use 1 or 2 - just remember which one you used; and connect it to the AV IN on the back of the TV.
THEN press ch down on the TV remote until you get to "AV1" - it is below channel 2; double check DVD player to make DVD is playing and voila!
I don't know the menu system on your model, but you have to check that the tuner is in the proper mode. Also, some of the new TV set models cannot receive a standard analog TV signal from its tuner.
As for the distance from the transmitter sight, this depends mostly on the antenna quality, antenna location, the power output of the transmitter sight, compatiblity of the TV to the received signal, and also the capability of the TV's tuner.
Modern TV sets are really designed to be used with a satellite or cable TV box with their respective service.
Terrestrial TV is dying out, and in a matter of a number of years, it will be gone.
Great question! First think to know is that if you are getting your programing from a cable or satellite provider a digital converter box would not be needed. These services are not being required to change their signals. If you use rabbit ears or an antenna a digital converter maybe required.
Looking at the specifications of your televisions they all appear to have analog tuners which would need digital converters to receive the new digital broadcasts.
Thankfully the FCC does have a program in place to offer coupons to assist in purchasing the new converter boxes.
