Hi.

If your set only has Analogue tuner you will need either Sky. Virgin, Freesat, or freeview box to be able to watch TV channels.

Is the PT50LC13 a digital TV? I didn't buy a converter box thinking that the TV didn't need one, but over time and unable to see any channel even with one, I wonder if the TV is indeed digital or not. I...


This tv only has an analog tuner (NTSC). That is why it works with cable and dvds. You will need a converter box to view OTA signals. (In addition, digital signals have a firm cut-off of signal strength; if the tuner doesn't get enough signal the channel will not be available.) So check with antennaweb.org or tvfool.com for details on the antenna direction for your area channels. antennaweb is very conservative in the channel listing it provides (even with the assumption of an external antenna). tvfool gives the color specifications of the antenna that should receive a given set of channels in your area.

The converter boxes are still available from select vendors but the government coupons program is not. Here's one that is listed as in stock: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3150939&CAWELAID=198809366 . This is one of the standard definition output boxes. High Definition digital to analog converters also exist but are more expensive.

A cheap alternative may be to use a PC TV tuner (either USB or internal card) attached to the antenna and then output to the TV. This TV has a VGA port. (If you want to use component video in on the TV, you will need to check if your video card will support the non-RGB signal or a converter box for that.)

I wish that I could be of more help.

I would like to know if the Hitachi 51UWX20B television can be connected to the internet.


Your Hitachi 51UWX20B is an HDTV-Ready TV. No Digital Tuner. HDTV-Ready means that your TV set is capable of displaying analog and high-definition digital pictures, but without a digital tuner, it cannot receive the digital signal. An HDTV-Ready requires an external high-definition TV receiver (digital tuner) in order to receive HDTV signals. These external receivers can be called an HDTV Tuner, set-top-box, decoder or DTV Converter Box . So you will be required to purchase a converter box to receive over the air programming from an external antenna.

Model 55311 Can you pick up digital tv without converter box?


I am thinking that you have a Mitsubishi WS-55311. If this is the case, you will need a converter box to receive digital television signals.

I hope that this helps you resolve your issue.

The changeover only effects those that use either rabbit ears or a rooftop antenna. It sounds like you have cable TV which will not change. No converter box should be needed if you have cable or satelite.

HDTV COMPATABLE


the hd sat box is your converter and is compatible to your tv (1080i only). if you are asking about local braodcast (over the air) this set doesn't have an ATSC (digital) tuner so you would need a box for that. but your sat company may be giving you your local broadcast in HD.
so if you are presently using an aeral antenna for your locals yes you will need the box.
if your locals are already being supplied by your sat company no the sat box is your converter.
note: some sat boxes have ATSC tuners built in so your antenna can be used by the sat box as well.
