Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

3 Answers

QUAM TUNER Does the RCA Model #D52W20B have a QUAM TUNER in it ?? My cable company wants to know because the cable company supplies HD Channels however you can only take advantage of them if you have a QUAM TUNER in your TV. Another words my cable company does not have the box necessary to give to it's customers in order to take advantage of the HD Channels and receive them. It is necessary for the customers TV to have an installed tuner that processes the HDTV channels in order to see them in 1080i on your screen. I hope someone can help me here.

I didn't realize my Sharp Aquos had this capacity. When my cable service had been switched off and came back on, I suddenly had these awesome channels of the same (NBC, CBS, ABC, etc.) which were so sharp and clear. Well recently we had another outtage in the area and the "cool channels" were gone. My cable company found out I had this type of "QAM" thing and scrambled it so I couldn't get it anymore.
Can they do this? If so, what's the purpose of having QAM? if your cable company will seek you out and nailya?

No it does not. The CATV Feed is supposed to be inputted into the ANT input and Autoprogram itself. You are going to have to go to the menu and manually hit Channel Surf or Whatever it is called on your Television. Hope this Helped.
Thanks for using Fixya!

    I slpit my cable internet and ran cable to all of the tvs in my house, I did not subscribe to television service, My older crt teles recieved 10 or 12 channels (on air stuff), My older syle lcd and plasma tvs recieved around 20 or 25 channels, and my wifes tv in our bedroom, lcd, with the quam tuner, recieves around 40 or 50 channels which include all the HD channels in amazing quality....if all my tvs had this quam tuner, I would be recieving incredible quality veiwing as opposed to subscribing to less channels for way more money.

Doubt it. We ran HD through our small CATV system using consumer grade modulators but could only get them on the AIR frequencies, as we had very limited bandwidth as we had to carry 64 analog channels plus digital HITS packages for our Motorola DSxxx series boxes. Try plugging the CATV feed into the ANT input and do an autoprogram, or tell the tv to look on the AIR frequencies when it asks if you have CATV or AIR. Worth a shot though.

How do i watch my tv with a broken remote


You can buy a universal remote and program it to work with your TV. I have always had good luck with RCA universal remotes. You can also program the remote to run your cable/sat box and your DVD/blue ray player. You could also go to the web site of the company that made the TV and order a new remote. This would be more expensive but the remote would run all the funcitions while the universal may not.

How could I connect a Daewoo 42sm TV?, I can't afford cable so I use a converter box(analog to digital w/rabbit antenna)on my other TV and I was given this Daewoo TV and would like to watch it;please


If your converter box only has RF outpit connectors "F" type screw on it looks like this my be more of a monitor then tv.I took a quick look at the manual and didn't see any RF inputs so it appears it doesn't have tuners built in Looks like you'll need a box that has RCA output connectors.or others that will match what the monitor has on it for input types
