Re: Is it DVT ready?
You have an analog TV. If you are asking for the purpose of getting a DTV converter box, you only need it if you use antenna for signal. If you have cable or Satillite there is not need for the coverter box.

The iLo IWT3206 TV provides two built-in -- or integrated -- TV tuners: a National Television System Committee (NTSC) tuner and an Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) tuner. While the NTSC tuner allows iLo IWT3206-viewers to receive analog, free-to-air TV broadcasts, the ATSC tuner allows viewers to receive digital TV broadcasts via a cable or satellite provider. The benefit of having an integrated ATSC tuner is that it negates the need for a separate cable box or satellite receiver, which can take up space.
I need more info! How old is the television? when you say "standard" do you mean standard definition? CRT or "tube" model? Older model TVs with the NTSC tuner will NOT pick up the digital over the air signal, you need a TV with ATSC/QAM tuner built in, or a set top box.
if there is a label on the tv stating any of these words “Integrated Digital Tuner,” “Digital Tuner Built-In,” “Digital Receiver,” or “Digital Tuner,” “DTV,” “ATSC,” or “HDTV” then yes if they say “Digital Monitor” or “HDTV Monitor,” or as “Digital Ready” or “HDTV Ready" then no
if your tuner is already dead replace it.because the original tuner of your TV is very expensive. the solution of your TV is converting tuner, you buy a kit name AUDIO TV CONVERTER . simply conection and and not very expensive. just plug the unit to ac line and connect the cable line to rf of your Television and its OK. im just trying to suggest my solution to you JRANDY phillipines tech
your tv is not digital, but fear not the Dish network reciever is already digital. the satbox is digital and converts to your TV.
if you are worried about the conversion to digital this applies to off air broadcast (the stuff you get from an antenna in your local area). if you want to know if you can get HD on your set, well your out of luck there because that is a whole differant digiotal world.
to explain this better we have to understand the old broadcast world before we get into the digital world.
NTSC or National Television Systems Committee has been the standard that we have watched TV since the creation of TV (one size fits all). it is an anolog format that is plaged with problems in the broadcast world, snowy pictures due to poor reception, visible scan lines, and a whole host of other problems. so the US has adpopted a new broadcast standard ATSC or Advanced Television Systems Committee, formed in 1993 this committee came up with 18 formats to which a broadcaster may choose from to broadcast the message. of the 18 only 6 are HD or High Definition. this does not mean that your local broadcast has to provide HD but they must be digital in their broadcast (SD or HD). the advantage of going to digital is that you will never see a snowy picture ever again, you have the picture or you don't. also the broadcaster has now can broadcast multiple programs on their one carrier (frequency). so if you want HD you must have a set that can display this format and have the equipment to produce this to your set. the dish box you have may not be able to produce this signal to your NEW HD setso that may be needing to be upgraded.
