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.

Tv tuner will ot detect digital signal in windows media center, vista


All US TV signals are now digital, but most TV tuners are like our old TVs - analog. Are you sure your tuner is a DTV tuner? If not, you will need to replace it or get a DTV converter. A DTV converter will not let your computer pick the channel and time though.

But one footnote. Broadcast digital TV is often not the same a cable digital TV. If you get a cable digital signal it is encrypted to the actual serial number of the receiving box. No broadcast DTV converter can do this. This is how the cable company now controls the number of receivers and one has to pay for EVERY set.

Have digital TV have 3 yr old sony VHS VCR DVD player combo


A DTV converter box will take digital broadcast signals from the antenna and convert them to a format compatible with the VCR. You will be able to record programs received through the DTV box on your VCR if you could record analog over-the-air programs before the digital changeover. You can use either the RF output or the component output from the DTV box to input to the VCR.

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 :)

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.

    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.

    How do i convert my dtv-5801 to the new free digital air waves


    My information indicates that the DTV-5801 has a NTSC (analog TV) tuner built in bot not and ATSC (digital tuner). It does have HDTV inputs to which an external tuner can be connected. For Off-Air Digital TV, add an HDTV (ATSC High Definition tunner) and you are set to go. Do not buy the DTV converters, they have down converters built in and only deliver SD to the outputs.

    Digital tuner


    I don't have this unit, but guessing from it's description on Amazon.com, I'd figure that it is analog-only. So you would need a converter.

    Here's the thing: all U.S. broadcasters are transmitting the new DTV signals NOW - in addition to the old analog signals. If a TV has a digital tuner, you should be able to use it now to see those DTV signals. Check your setup menu for options like ATSC.
    One hint, the new signals use channel designations like 7.1 or 7-1 or 7-1HD. And some stations will have virtual channels, i.e., 7.1, 7.2, 7.3. If you can't get your TV to scan channels and show the numbers in that fashion, it isn't using a digital tuner.
