How do we scan/program in local tv channels. We bought an external antenna, but get no picture. Typically, there is a protocol for scanning channels into the set. Model is Sansui TVS2746B, and the set was...


Okay, does this tv have a built in DIGITAL tuner? Most tv's only have an analog tuner. You can tell the difference while you are changing the channels. If the channel indicates 2.1 or 2.2 and so forth, it is on a digital channel mode. If you change the channel and it indicated 2, 3, 4, etc. it is analog. If it has digital capability change the input until you see 2.1, 3.4 etc. If you cycle through all the inputs on the tv like, input 1 (TV) input 2(DVD) input 3(HDMI) and so forth and you never see the digital channel you most likely do not have a digital tuner. You will need to purchase a digital converter which will convert it to analog and you can watch it by placing you tv on analog channel 3 just like the old vcr's. Hope this helps and please don't forget to rate this solution.

How do i tune in my digital cable on my analog tv?


You'll need a digital cable box for that, I'm afraid. The analog tuner in the set isn't compatible with the digital cable signal. The cable company in my city just dropped their analog service. Now you either need a digital converter box, or a "cable box lite" called a digital transport adapter. For digital off-the-air broadcasting you need a digital tuner and probably an amplified or outdoor antenna. The analog TV is rapidly becoming pretty useless except as a display device as analog channels disappear.

Lcd tv digital tuner


Welcome to the world of off-the-air broadcasting!

First, be sure you have the TV set up correctly and that is in fact capable of digital tuning. Just because a set was sold as HDTV doesn't mean it has a digital tuner. Small TV sets weren't required to have digital tuning until shortly before the switch from analog. This set may require a digital adapter. If the set does have digital tuning, be sure you have "air" selected and not "cable" for your tuning mode. Also let the set scan for channels.

With digital broadcasting, signal strength is critical. In the analog days, a weak signal would give you a fuzzy picture, but you could see something; with digital, a weak signal means you see nothing at all. You may live in an area where the signal is too weak without using an amplified indoor antenna or putting one on the roof. Your location, other structures around and weather conditions all affect digital reception as well. Many people were (and still are) upset to find that they just couldn't get any channels at all once digital broadcasts took over.

I hope this has been helpful. Thanks for using Fixya!

Is this TV digital ready


According to http://www.dtv.gov/consumercorner.html#faq9

How can I be sure that I am buying a digital TV (DTV)?
By law, beginning March 1, 2007, all television reception devices (including TVs, VCRs, DVRs, etc.) imported into the U.S. or shipped in interstate commerce must contain a digital tuner. Retailers may continue to sell analog-only devices from existing inventory, but must prominently display on or near the analog-only device a Consumer Alert label with this advisory:

What is the difference between “Integrated” DTVs and DTV or HDTV “Monitors”?
An Integrated DTV set is a television with a built-in digital tuner (also referred to as “a DTV”). A digital tuner is also sometimes called a DTV decoder or DTV receiver. If you have an Integrated DTV, you will not need any additional equipment, with the exception of a broadcast antenna (either a rooftop antenna or “rabbit ears” connected to the set), to receive over-the-air digital broadcast programming. Integrated DTVs can also receive and display analog broadcast programming, so you can continue watching analog broadcasts.
In contrast, a DTV Monitor is not capable of receiving digital broadcast programming without additional equipment; it is simply a display device without the processing capability for DTV reception. A digital or HD set-top box must be connected between the antenna and the monitor to receive and display over-the-air digital or HD programming.
If you have a digital or HD “Monitor” and would like to purchase a digital or HD set-top box to view over-the-air programming, confirm with your retailer that the set-top box is compatible with your Monitor.

Hitachi 57G500A DTV & upcoming analog to digital changeover


To answer your direct question, yes it has a digital tuner. To answer your real question, NO it WILL NOT receive the new ATSC (digital) broadcast stations. The tuner itself is a digital one but works only for analog signals. The changeover in February will change the broadcast signals to a new digital format that will require a converter for your set to continue to function. Please note that the converter is only required if you receive your signal from rabbit ears or a rooftop antenna. If connected to cable or satelite, no change will be seen and no converter is needed.

To simplify:

Over air reception = need converter
Cable or satelite = no converter

Is my Toshiba TV digital or analog?


if there is a label on the tv stating any of these words “Integrated Digital Tuner,” “Digital Tuner Built-In,” “Digital Receiver,” or “Digital Tuner,” “DTV,” “ATSC,” or “HDTV” then yes
if they say “Digital Monitor” or “HDTV Monitor,” or as “Digital Ready” or “HDTV Ready" then no

Digital or not


Sory to say that this set DOES NOT have the digital tuner required for over-air digital broadcasts. IT does have a digital tuner but only for cable and analog over-air stations. You would only be effected by the chagneover if you uise rabbit ears or a rooftop antenna. If you have cable or satelite or any other subscription TV service, you will not be effected.

TV's tuner will not recieve all channels


Since you are not using a set top box, you will probably only get channels up into the 70's, if available in your town, as most channels above this are digital, which analog cannot convert.  As for the digital tuner, I have the same problen.  It will not pick up any digital channels.  Because of this, I have had to get a digital box(why in the hell should I have a digital tuner?) to recieve digital channels.  I have the same tv you have, except a standard def.  If you ever find out why your digital tuner won't work, I'd love to know myself.  good luck, hope this helps.
