Their are no hd crt monitors that I am aware of, your tv as per the descriptions I find says nothing about an atsc tuner therefor I would say if you do not have cable or satellite receivers you will need a converter box to receive hd signal from your current antenna

Digital or Analog


This TV has an NTSC (analog) tuner. You'll need a digital to analog converter if you want to receive most OTA channels.

I hope this helps.

I would need your exact model # to get very specific, but in general:
The "External tuner" will need to come from your TV or a cable/sat box, generally. If your TV has a Video OUT or a Monitor OUT (most television don't), you can hook a yellow AV/RCA video cable from the TV to the Magnavox. You will also need to hook a red/white audio cable from the Audio OUT of your TV to the Magnavox.

Your TV probably doesn't have a Video OUT, so you will need to buy a box. A digital cable box for your cable service would be the best investment. Alternatively, if you can find a digital-to-analog converter box (but these are iffy). Once you have one of these box types, you will need to hook a red, white, and yellow AV/RCA cable from the video/audio OUT of the box to an available video/audio in on your television.

Once your connections are correct, the general rule with tuner-less recorders is: If you can see the channel that you want to record on the television screen, then you will be able to record it.

One final note about Feb 17, 2009: Thanks to Congress, the digital transition date was moved to June 12, 2009 - many areas have already switched, but there is at least a chance that you are in an area that hasn't switched yet.

Let me know the exact model # of your television, and I can tell you if it has a video/monitor out - or, let me know what type of box you decide to buy.

Good luck!

Does my tv have a digital tuner (RCA Model E13320, 2/2001)?


The digital tuner has nothing to do with the new signal you will be receiving in February of next year. The new video signal is a digital signal. The old video signal is analog. Your television receives the analog signal and converts it to what you see on television. You need a converter box to convert the new digital signal back to an analog signal your television can convert.

Is this a digital television? will i need a digital box with my television in 2009 ?


The "DTV ANSWERS" website says that any TV made since 2004, has a built-in digital tuner and will not require a digital converter box. If you currently receive your TV signals from your cable, satellite, or phone company, you won't need a converter box, even if you have an older non-digital TV. Only people with TVs made before 2004, will need to purchase a converter box, if they don't use TV signals from cable, satellite, or phone companies.
You might want to visit the RCA website, to see if they have a phone number to call, for any additional questions.
