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

if the TV is a newer digital model, installing a regular antenna should give you local stations to watch.

Can I get l get local channels if my cable is off.


If your TV has a digital tuner built in then yes. If it's an older TV then you'll need an external digital tuner box and an outside antenna.

Have had digital installed and cannot get tv to work through digital. Any advice?


Hello
Thei Orion model Tv is not equipped with a digital tuner inside. There is only an analogue tuner fitted and only analogue channels can be received by this set. To get digital channels, you have to buy one settop box, which can convert digital signals to analogue signals. In short, a Digital to Analogue Converter should be bought, if you want to get digital channels. OK.

Line floats from bottom of screen to top. Is it the direct cable hook up that causes that to happen.


Hello bbarnell821,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

Your issue is from the tuner within the TV. The new cable standard is Digital, and your TV has an Analog tuner. Visit your local Best Buy or the link I have provided below, to purchase a converter that will convert the digital backwards to analog for your TV Set.

Cannot get tuner to work - dvd works fine


Analog TV broadcasting is done now. Unless your TV has a digital tuner already built in, you'll need a converter box to get any channels now. The DVD player part will still work, as you've already discovered. If your TV does have a digital tuner, try going through the setup and scan for channels.

Ant/cable hole on back of set looks broken


You are going have to soldered a new coax connector into the tuner, which is not an easy thing to do. It would be a lot easier just to replace the tuner. Check with Andrews Electronics, and get someone knowlegeable in electronics to help you with the soldering.

The key is that you are on Directv. So the answer is no. You can't even use the converter boxes with Directv. They are only for watching programs using regular TV antennas.

FYI, based on the online manual, this model TV does NOT have an ATSC tuner built in, even though it has digital audio out. It's only NTSC.
