    Just a followup on this problem. My wife has this TV and uses it when we go on trips. Any reasonable ideas on how to keep using the TV after Feb. 2009 would be appreciated.

The old Watchmans are analog. If plugged into a digital cable/dish system it will scan in UHF and find the working channel than can be conrolled by your digital remote control. As far as taking it out on its own and working off the external antenna...those days will be over. Sony will have to manufacture digital Watchmans.

PICTURE WILL NOT APPEAR ON SCREEN


First, I would check to see if the AC adaptor is working. If you are on batteries instead, look for corrosion on the battery housing-usually on the springs

Any of the digital to analog converters should work. Connect the converter RF OUT to a COAX cable, connect the wire in the center of the COAX cable to the Sony antenna with an alligator clip type patch cord. Tune the sony to the proper channel (3 or 4). Voila!

The Sony KV-32S120 has an analog tuner. If you use it with an antenna, you'll need a digital converter box. If you're a cable tv subscriber, the cable company will do the conversion and you won't need anything. Here's what Sony says about it...

The only people effected by the changeover are those that use external antennas for TV reception. I am assuming that you use cable or satelite correct?

Digital reception


Check the menu screen to see if you have an option to program digital channels . If not the answer is no . If you are on cable or satelite then you need not worry as the only people who will be affected by the digital change over will be if your on outdoor antenna or rabbitt ears only with your tv. Your cable and satelite providers will not change you over on feb 19th 2009 . Everythung will be the same . Good luck
