Most places listed "1 tuner" in specs. Was finally able to find a site where it listed the type of tuner which confirmed that it was not HD compatible. That was all I needed. Sorry I troubled you with this, I shouldn't even have been on your site with this Q. Thanks for responding. Potter1

Can a toshiba 28z07b be digitally tuned


Hi,
Your TV set has a 181 Channel Tuner and 100 Programme Positions..
Over the air signals (analog and digital) are free but require an special antennas for Digital reception and reception depends on your where you live and other factors.
Additionally Cable and satellite signals require you to connect a cable to your
TV tuner and a subscription and cable box for premium channels including Digital channels..
While all l TV tuners have the ability to receive over the air TV signals,
not all tuners can receive high definition (HD) signals. In North America, all
over-the-air TV is now broadcast in digital quality (ATSC).
ATSC is the over the air HDTV standard for North America and is currently available
in over 200 cities in the United States.

Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know.
Take care and please

Will my TV receive digital signals without an external digital converter?


Hi, John.
No your tv is an older standard definition tv with an NTSC tuner..that was the old type tuner for analog stations.
You will need to get an ATSC digital tuner in order to tune in digital broadcasts.

Luckily, you don't have to spend hundreds to get one.
WalMart and several other stores carry inexpensive digital tuner converters that are in the $30-$40 range.

I hope this helps you out on getting stations picked up, as without the converter, your tv would only be good for hooking up a dvd player to it, or for video games.

Good luck tio you, and have a good day.

What type of antenna do you reccomend cant get the tv to work at all no picture no sound not using cable no antenna tried auto PLEASE ADVISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Lets get started. First the TV you have does not have the new ATSC digital tuner built in. It uses the old NTSC tuner. You might find a few stations, however most major networks have gone Digital because the maximum power for NTSC is limited to 1000 watts. ATSC is the new digital standard for broadcasting both High Definition programs as well as standard definitions programs. So you will need a Digital converter box. They sell them at Radio Shack for around $60. You can get one on ebay for around $25. You will also need and antenna. A good old set of rabbit ears will work fine if you not to far (less than 25 miles) from the transmission towers. If your out in a rural area (greater than 25 miles from the tower) you may want to consider and outdoor antenna. Antennas Direct is a great source for antennas.

You can also get help estimating what kind of antenna you need at this web site:

However you may want to consider buying a new TV which will have a new ATSC tuner built in. You will still need and antenna.
Hope this helps.

Digital tuner or not?


Yes in July I do not recall the date you will need the digital tuner for this TV, A rule of thumb look at the manufacture date on the back of the set if its earlier then 2007 you need a digital converter. There are two types of digital QAM signals one is called TRUE QAM and the other is STANDARD QAM the old standard was foe things like DVD's and the like and not OTA "over the air" I hope thisdoes help but you do got a good TV there but if you buy a converter you be gald you did!!!

Please do not shoot the messanger and rate a good rateing as we do not get PAID to answer these free questions :)

Sony FD Trinitron WEGA TV Model Number KD27FS170 digital tuner problem


I have the same TV and was unable to get the digital channels until today. I think you need to connect your antenna on the back of the TV to the ATSC jack. If you have had it connected to the VHF/UHF jack, it won't detect the digital signals. Once you have the antenna connected to the ATSC jack just Auto Program your TV and you'll find all the digital channels in your area. Good luck!
