Question about Flat Panel Televisions
I want to buy a Samsung 61" LED DLP Model HL61A750 HDTV and I see on their specs that it says it's not digital cable ready. What does that mean? It doesn't need anything to plug it into the cable and play, right?
"Digital cable ready" TV's have a built-in feature that allows them to receive both standard and high definition signals, typically through the use of CableCARD technology instead of a set-top box.
While this specific Samsung model (HL61A750) is not digital cable ready, it does feature both an ATSC and Clear QAM tuner. This means that it should still be able to receive locally broadcast and unscrambled over-the-air digital signals, but will require a set-top cable box to receive any kind of scrambled digital signal.
Hope this helps you out.
