Is the tuner built-in ATSC, or NTSC?


Your tv tuner is set to function on both NTSC and ATSC. See below for the reference

NTSC (National Television System Committee) is the analog television broadcasting standard used widely in North America. It is referred to as a 525-line standard, but actually displays only 480 lines. NTSC is to be replaced with new DTV (Digital TV) standards in the coming years.


ATSC (Advanced Television Standards Committee) creates the technical standards for the US digital television system (DTV). These standards are expected to be used in most new televisions, as the US television system shifts from analog to digital.

Hi! just need to know if my tv is ready for digital tv i have the sony kp-57ws520. i've hooked up my antenna and i still dont get a picture thanks for any info.


Your Sony KP-57WS520 television has an analog tuner, so you may need a digital tuner or a converter box to continue to receive over-the-air programming.
If you subscribe to a cable or satellite service, your television viewing should not be affected by the June 12, 2009, cut-off date for full-power analog broadcasting. Please contact your service provider for complete information.

Is my akai projection tv digital ready or do i need to purchase a converter box.


depends if you have a cable service. Cable companies will still broadcast in analog because they are a closed system same with sat. only other way to tell if you have a digital tuner is by one a cable/satalite card or when doing the tv programing it asks digital?

Dtv ready?


Going to the following link will help you to find out if your television is DTV ready or not:

http://www.dtvtransition.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=51&Itemid=94

Using their online tool, select the Brand (Akai) and the Model from the list. If you cannot find your model in the list (which I was not able to for your television), they are saying that you most likely do not have a digital tuner.

All is not lost, however. As stated on the aforementioned site, you can consider one of the following options:

  • Purchase a digital-to-analog converter box that plugs into an existing television. The boxes, which are expected to cost between $40 - 70 will be available for purchase in 2008. Beginning in February 2008, U.S. households can request up to two coupons valued at $40 each. Each coupon can go toward the purchase of a single set-top converter box that will allow you to continue watching FREE "over-the-air" television on an analog set.
  • Subscribe to a cable, satellite or telecommunications service provider if all desired local broadcast stations are carried by that service.
  • Purchase a new television set with a built in digital tuner.

    Listed on the page is further information that may help you to determine the status of your TV:

  • Consult your owner's manual. If that's not possible, you may be able to look up information about your TV set on the manufacturer's website. Or, you can take an up-close look at your TV set. You are trying to find out if your set has an input connection labeled "digital input" or "ATSC" (for Advanced Television Systems Committee, which is developing the DTV format).
  • If you bought your TV set before 1998, it probably doesn't have a digital tuner at all. Almost every TV set made before 1998 was a traditional "analog" set that can't display digital TV signals without either a special converter or a cable TV connection. If you bought a big-screen, projection TV between 1998 and 2004, it's possible there's a built-in digital tuner inside. But chances aren't great. Only a limited percentage of projection TV sets (and generally only those 42 inches in diameter or larger) included digital tuners before 2004.
  • If you've purchased a new TV set since 2004, your chances of having a built-in digital tuner improve dramatically. Starting in 2004, many of the TV sets sold at popular electronics stores have featured digital tuners that will let you receive the new digital over-the-air broadcasts starting in February 2009. But be wary: It's not a sure thing. Even some of the newer TV sets are purely display monitors that lack the internal circuitry needed to pick up digital broadcasts. Usually these sets have been advertised as "HD-ready" or "HDTV monitor" sets. That means they can display digital and high-definition signals, but they need help getting those signals in the first place. You'll still need a special converter or a cable TV connection.

    I have 50" PF9966 flat TV , not sure if is HD ready ? 2006 model how do i find out , nothing showing in guide


    There are a few things to consider here. First, if you are using cable or satelite, the changeover has no effect on you anyway. If you are using an antenna, the changeover to a digital broadcast signal has already been in place for a while. The set should be able to auto-detect these signals. I believe that most of the models from 2005 on had digital signal tuners available. This is not the same as a "digital" tuner. A digital tuner only means that the stations are tuned digitally but are still analog signals. The changeover will be to change the analog signals to digital ones that require a smaller frequesny band for broadcast thus opening up more space for additional channels.

    Hope this helps,
    Dan

    I have a Sanyo CLT2054 TV. Does have a digital tuner so I can receive digital signals from a DVR and Digital broadcasts? Neill Parkin


    Salutations nrparkin,

    I hate to say there maybe some misunderstanding of the features of your television. After reading your owners manual it shows that you should only be able to pick up standard NTSC analog boradcasts not the ATSC digital broadcast standard.

    Your television is a EDTV which means its an Enhanced Definition Television allowing a display of 480P. You may still need a digital converter to pick up the current and future digital broadcasts over the air.

    Hope this helps.

    Digital or not digital


    this tv has no digital tuner built in to it. In order to recieve a digital broadcast the tuner must be atsc compliant. The best solution is to get a converter box to decode digital to analog signal.
