Does this have a digital tuner?

Does this have a digital tuner built-in, or am I going to need to buy a separate digital tuner when they stop broadcasting analog TV?

Thanks.

    I have a Samsung Plasma 450, bought 2 months ago. With the craze of going on local HD channels, lot of my neighbors bought indoor/outdoor hdtv antennas, and they work great on their TVs. I first bought one indoor and plugged it in ANT in in the back of my TV, it did not work. I then bought an outdoor one, took it to the roof and no a single HD channel pulled in. What is wrong?

Look here, there is a phone were you can call and ask, as you can read, this article says nothing about that feature so I think is not digital ready, is a verry good combo and I never see one in my shop or other shop in my area that means is a good one, if you live in US or in a US posesion as Pueerto Rico the federal gob. will give you a $40 dollar value to buy a digital to analog converter......good luck and rate me

How do ihook up a digital antenna to my tv


Dominic, you do not state whether you want large outdoor antenna or simple indoor.
If you bought your HDTV anytime during the past 8 years or so, it should have a built-in tuner for receiving digital over-the-air broadcasts. If you have an older "HDTV-ready" TV that only receives analog signals, you'll need to connect it to a separate HDTV tuner.
link below tells how to install outdoor digital TV antenna.

How can i tell if my tv is digital


The iLo IWT3206 TV provides two built-in -- or integrated -- TV tuners: a National Television System Committee (NTSC) tuner and an Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) tuner.
While the NTSC tuner allows iLo IWT3206-viewers to receive analog, free-to-air TV broadcasts, the ATSC tuner allows viewers to receive digital TV broadcasts via a cable or satellite provider.
The benefit of having an integrated ATSC tuner is that it negates the need for a separate cable box or satellite receiver, which can take up space.

Now that we are on digital will the SD-37VB dvd vcr recorder work or do I have to alter a setting to make this happen


If the unit has a built in analogue tuner, the unit itself will still operate as normal, but without the built in analogue channels - to record a TV show, you would need to connect an external set top box to it (SD or HD - or both).

In other words, apart from a separate set top box, if required, there should be no need to change any of the unit's settings if it works as is. I do not believe this model has a built-in digital (DVB) tuner.

If ut is not a digital tuner then you will not pick up any stations. Look at your owners manual to see if the tuner is digital. If its not then you will have to buy a digital converter box.

I have an Alba 32880hdf freeview tv. I cannot record freeview programmes to my panasonic NV-FJ 780 vcr which has 2 scart sockets. I have no problem recording the teresteral channels. Can you help pls


Hi Victor,

You can't record the Freeview channels from the TV. It doesn't work that way. The reason you can still record terrestrial channels is because the VCR is still connected to your roof aerial with a co-axial cable and the VCR has its own built-in analogue tuner for recording terrestrial TV programmes.

To record the digital Freeview channels, you will either need to connect a separate Freeview set-top box to the VCR, or buy a VCR which has a built-in digital (DVB-T) tuner.

The VCR does not record programmes from the TV. It needs to be connected directly to the signal source, i.e. your aerial.

If you need any further assistance, please let me know.

Regards,
BElectric

I've an LCD with built in digital tuner, how do i


No the Tuner doesn't have an Output, so one cannot get a signal OUT of the Tuner, UNLESS there is a Tuner Out, A Monitor, OUT. Then you cannot get any signal to feed into the device you wish to record with. The signal MUST go to a TUNER first, then the OUTPUT may be fed to anything else. As said IF the Device with the Tuner HAS a way of outputting Video & Audio, then you can take that signal and record it, otherwise you cannot.

How do i convert my dtv-5801 to the new free digital air waves


My information indicates that the DTV-5801 has a NTSC (analog TV) tuner built in bot not and ATSC (digital tuner). It does have HDTV inputs to which an external tuner can be connected. For Off-Air Digital TV, add an HDTV (ATSC High Definition tunner) and you are set to go. Do not buy the DTV converters, they have down converters built in and only deliver SD to the outputs.

HD ready?


The TV is just HD ready (doesn't have the HD tuner built-in), you need a separate HD tuner connected to your TV.
