Is this a HD ready tv if not what would help?


Based on the specs for the TV, the DS31520 is not an HD-ready display. It is at best an SD display with an NTSC (analog tuner). (Picture resolution: 330 lines, video input 660 lines) OTA ATSC signals are 480i (SD), 720p or 1080i (HD) where those are the number of horizontal lines of pixels. The manual is available here: http://www.sanyotv.com/DS31520%20%28ESF%29%203178--.pdf .

This is a fine TV for analog cable or OTA TV with a standard digital to analog converter box (which only give SD output). The TV has composite video and S-video inputs (again limited to SD).

For HD, you will need a new TV screen that can display more rows of data.

I wish that I had better news for you.

How does my mother hook up the antenna and get her TV to work (no cable)


First, you'll want to make sure that her antenna has a coaxial cable (one of the thick round ones) coming from the antenna. Some older ones have a flat piece of plastic with two wires sticking out. These are less efficient, but if you have one, use a balun (a vhf-uhf matching transformer) to change to coax. You can google "balun" if you don't know what one looks like. Next, you'll need a digital converter box (if you don't have one already). Connect one end of the coax cable to the antenna (or balun) and the other to the jack on the converter box labeled "ant. in." Finally, using another coax cable, connect one end to the jack on the converter box labeled "to tv" and the other end to the jack on the TV labeled "ant. in." Finally, depending on your converter box, you will probably need to "scan " for tv channels. Follow the setup instructions with the converter box to do this. If you don't have the instructions, try googling the converter box company and model number to find the users manual. I hope this helps, and good luck! Sincerely, Der Strom

Are my Orion tv's purchased in 2002 digital ready


Your TV does not have a digital tuner. You'll need a converter box for digital broadcast reception. Remember that if you're on a cable system or using a satellite receiver, your TV doesn't need to have digital tuning. It's only if you want to watch off-the-air broadcasts that you'll need the converter.

Orion and TV Converter box


Most converter boxes will hook up to your tv if it has an antenna jack. I'm guessing the list you were looking at was a list of converter boxes that could be purchased with the governments coupons, not a list of tv's. I hope this is helpful to you. Make sure the converter box you buy has coaxial out to tv jack(it will look like the ant in jack).

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...

Sanyo tv model DS31520..is it an HD tv?


You can view the specifications here:
Sanyo DS31520
I found no mention of the needed ATSC digital tuner so you need to acquire a converter box to receive broadcast signals after the changeover. Cable and satellite reception are not affected.
I reviewed the available converters and chose the Zinwell ZAT-970.

Digital converter box hook up


Can you describe how the DVD and VCR were connected prior to the converter box when they were working? I need to know that in order to guide you properly.

Thanks,

Digital capable


You will only need the converter box if you use an antenna. If you have a cable tv service, they will do the conversion on their end.

Digitial TV Converter


The antenna connects to the ant jack on the digital converter box. The cable you are describing goes from the tv jack on the box to the ant jack on the tv. If this does not work we will need more info. Hope this helps.
