If you're asking just for the purposes of the new Digital era that is coming, then YES, you will need a converter box. If the TV is hooked up to cable, then you can do without the box. If you go to RCA.com they have a section on their site that let's you put your model number in to see if it will be ready for the new digital that is coming. Hope this helps!

Is jvc av-32d503 digital ready or do I need to buy a converter box for use with an outside antenna system


Looks like you'll need a converter.

Here's some background info:


Analog TVs were made up until 2007.

Digital tuners for over the air signals are called "ATSC tuners".

To tell if your TV has one:

-If the TV was sold as a "HDTV" or "DTV", it's supposed to have an ATSC tuner built in to it. "HD ready TVs" do not have a digital tuner.

-Check the specs in the owners manual or google the make & model of the TV to see if it has an ATSC tuner.

-If your TV's menu has an option for scaning for digital channels, then it has an ATSC tuner. If it dosen't have a way to scan for digital channels, then it doesn't have a digial tuner.

Most DTVs also have a digital QAM tuner that is used in some (but not all) cable systems.

I have a Jensen TV, Model Number TS2050J. I need to know if it has a QAM tuner built in.


Hi.
No, your tv is an older model sdtv with an analog only NTSC tuner.

Newer model have an ATSC/Qam digital tuner, but not your model.

This means that if you want to watch tv, you'll have to get a converter box. It will have the ATSC/QAM tuner i it, and it converts the signal into lower definition NTSC, and then sends it to the tv through either coax cable, or rca cables.
Once in a great while you might even find one that has s-video output, but those usually are expensive.

I hope this helps you out.

Do you need a converter box with model CLC502 TV


I am not familiar with this TV but if you look in the manula and it does not say it has a digital ATSC tuner, then you need a converter box. If the TV is more than about 3 or 4 years old it is unlikely it will have an ATSC tuner.

Is the rca true flat tv able to be used by putting up an antena -or will we need a convertor box ? currently we have direct tv and are thinking about canceling it and use an antena.


This model does not have a built in HD tuner (ATSC Tuner). You would need an HD antenna (that is a more recent antenna that receives UHF) and an HD converter box to get the newly broadcast HD signals.

I am not using cable or dish...what type of antenna should i use to get the most out of the digital conversion...and is the built in converter adequate or do i need converter box?


The specs for this TV shows it has ASTC and NTSC so you do not need a converter box.
Almost all the Digital channels are broadcasted in the UHF band.
When you scan in the channels the VHF numbers will still show but the actually signal will be in the UHF band.

Converter box question


This set has the ATSC tuner required for the new over-air standard. No converter is needed.

Digital hook up


No, you will need an ATSC tuner box that will receive digital signals from the antenna and convert them to channel 3 or 4, and put the video and audio out on RCA plugs - yellow, red, and white.

Sanyo DS31590 and converter box


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

Digital signal conversion


If you have cable TV, satellite TV, or FIOS, the coupon eligible converter boxes aren't needed and aren't useful with those services.
They gov't coupon converter boxes are only good for reception with a regular TV antenna or rabbit ears.

According to the specs on epinions.com, no, this TV does not have a digital tuner. So, if you use a rooftop TV antenna (not satellite dish) or an indoor TV antenna, you WILL need an ATSC to NTSC converter box. You need not wait until next year, however, as most U.S. TV stations are also broadcasting digital (ATSC) now.
