    No I do not have cable or satelite. How about the Sony TV Model: KV27FS120 Trinitron. Does it have a "digital tuner" already built in?

    Thank you in advance.

Your set does not have the correct tuner in it. However, the broadcast change only effects those that use an external antenna for reception. If you are using cable, satelite or any other service for TV, you do not need the converter.

    The digital tuners referred to in that case are for digital cable signals and are not the over-air signals. With either set you will need the converter.

How do I get my Sylvania model 6620LCT to imput mode antenna for clear tv. I don't see the option in the menu


You need a digital to analog converter box to watch TV from any antenna since the switchover to the broadcast of digital only TV signals.

No channels on either VHF or UHF settings


The news is not good, my friend.
The USA switched to digital broadcasts of TV signal around February 2009. Before that, all TV stations were transmitting analog signals. This TV has an analog tuner and is not able to receive digital broadcasts.
Unfortunately, this TV does not have any input jacks for coaxial cable, RCA cords, or even a plug for TV input. So you don't have any simple means to hook up to DVD players or videogames, or (most importantly) a digital-to-analog converter box. Basically, this TV has no value in the USA. If you take it to a country that still broadcasts NTSC analog signals over the air, though, you'll be in good shape. But if I'm on vacation in one of those places, the last thing I'm going to do is spend my time watching a teeny tiny television, you know?

I have a sony trinitron wega tv model number KV-32FS120 and I was wondering if it is digital ready or do I need to get a converter box


This television receiver has only an analog broadcast tuner and will require a converter box after February 17, 2009, to receive over-the-air broadcasts with an antenna because of the U.S.'s transition to digital broadcasting. Analog-only TVs should continue to work as before with cable and satellite TV services, gaming consoles, VCRs, DVD players, and similar products.

Will the JVC TV model AV-27820 mfg 1997 become obsolete i n February?


It will still work fine if you have cable or satellite. If you are using an antenna to receive broadcast signal you will need to get a digital converter box from an electronics store like Best Buy. You can get discount coupons from the federal government good for 40 dollars towards the converter. Google "Digital Covnverter Coupon Program" and it should give you a link to the site to apply for up to 2 coupons.

HD tv changes


The changes that you mention will only effect you if you use either rabbit ears or a rooftop antenna. The over-air broadcast signals are being changed from analog to digital. If you have cable or satelite service, there will be no change.

DTV????????????????????????


From the side of the carton in which it came:
CONSUMER ALERT: This television receiver has only an analog broadcast tuner and will require a converter box after February 17, 2009 to receive over-the-air broadcasts with an antenna because of the U.S.'s transition to digital broadcasting. Analog-only TVs should continue to work as before with cable and satellite TV services, gaming consoles, VCRs, DVD players, and similar products. For more information, call the Federal Communications Commission at 1-888-225-5322 (TTY: 1-888-835-5322), or visit the commission’s digital-television Web site at: www.dtv.gov.
The only other thing I could add to this, is that the Post Office in 2009 will get the task of handing out $40.00 coupons to to anyone wishing to purchase a converter.
