    As long as you are on cable or satellite you should be unaffected. The only people the HD transition is going to effect is people on standard antennas.

I have a RCA D52W20 rear projection HDTV. This TV was purchased in2005. I cancelled my cable and I just hooked up a digital antenna but the TV isn't finding any channels. What do I need to do? I was...


HDTV indicates the number of lines that are shown by the TV. (HD means that at least 720 lines can be displayed in a given picture.) To receive OTA signals, you need an ATSC tuner (digital) of sufficient power (with a clear path to the transmitter) these days. The RCA D52W20 was released in 2002 and only has an NTSC (analog tuner). You will need a digital-to-analog converter to receive OTA TV (unless any low power analog stations remain in your area).

Please note that the basic digital-to-analog converters that were available with the government coupon back in 2009 were SD (480i lines of pixels used) units. HD d-t-a converters exist but are more expensive.

I hope this helps.

(the phrase "digital antenna" is meaningless; check with tvfool.com or antennaweb.org for the direction of local transmitters. TVfool.com will give more information on the type of antenna (indoor, outdoor, amplifier) that you will need to receive channels in your area. Antennaweb assumes an external antenna but is very conservative in the stations that it will indicate that you can receive. Antennas are given a color rating based on how far away the transmitter can be to get a watchable signal. Since digital signals are either enough for the tuner to interpret or you get a "no signal" message, you often need a stronger signal than was needed to receive a watchable analog channel.)

I would like to know if the Hitachi 51UWX20B television can be connected to the internet.


Your Hitachi 51UWX20B is an HDTV-Ready TV. No Digital Tuner. HDTV-Ready means that your TV set is capable of displaying analog and high-definition digital pictures, but without a digital tuner, it cannot receive the digital signal. An HDTV-Ready requires an external high-definition TV receiver (digital tuner) in order to receive HDTV signals. These external receivers can be called an HDTV Tuner, set-top-box, decoder or DTV Converter Box . So you will be required to purchase a converter box to receive over the air programming from an external antenna.

Hi! just need to know if my tv is ready for digital tv i have the sony kp-57ws520. i've hooked up my antenna and i still dont get a picture thanks for any info.


Your Sony KP-57WS520 television has an analog tuner, so you may need a digital tuner or a converter box to continue to receive over-the-air programming.
If you subscribe to a cable or satellite service, your television viewing should not be affected by the June 12, 2009, cut-off date for full-power analog broadcasting. Please contact your service provider for complete information.

Doubt about hitachi model 57f500


It is HDTV ready and supports the  1080i (HDTV) • 720p (HDTV) • 480p (EDTV) • 480i (SDTV) • 540p formats.
You can download the manual from: http://www.devicemanuals.com/downloadguide.php

There should be buttons on the front that allow you to access menus, etc. (They may be behind a door or panel.)

This TV is analog, meaning there are no "straight digital" inputs, and the tuner itself is NTSC (analog), and not ATSC (digital). You will need a digital converter box to receive over-the-air (broadcast) digital television stations. This does NOT, however, preclude you from purchasing Digital Cable or Digital Satellite, and using the analog output on their converter boxes. The television will display high-definition images from those boxes and other sources.

I have the owner's manual in .pdf (adobe acrobat) format. Leave me your email address and I'll send it to you.

Thanks,

JVC Television 56" in Digital Mode


somewhere in the tv's menu there will be something called autotune or channel settings. while in that part of the menu you should find something to change settings. also there are many inputs on the back of big screen tv's, you might try a different input like cable/antenna for instance. it may take a two way splitter to split the signal for both digital cable and analog cable. by next february the analog part of the cable may not work anyway.

It's not a digital hi-def tv, so you either need a cable/sat box..or a converter once hi-def goes in and analog stops.

you do not have a digital tuner if that is what you mean. if you have a cable box you do not need to worry about this stuff but if you want to pick up over the air signals sometime next year you will need some type of hd to sd converter
