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

My tv is a Sanyo DS31590, want to know if it has a built in QAM tuner for digital signal or do I need a digital adapter?


Unfortunately now days you will need a digital adaptor or a cable box. If you connect your cable feed directly to your tv, depending on your location you might pick up a select few analog channels still. To get full digital programming you will need the adaptor.

Sanyo ds31590 picture's very dark and red


sounds to me that your picture tube needs rejuvenated.
You will need to get it done by a tech.
mechanical doesn't mean a thing when it comes to electronics.
Mechanics when working on electronics, end up costing more damage when you end up taking it to a tech.
