Panasonic TV -7 to 10 years old (I do not have the manuel to this t.v.)- 19
I want to upgrade to digital, not sure if this t.v. has a digital tuner or not, can you tell me? Is it worth converting this to digital with a converter box or should I try to upgrade to a newer model? I do not know which way to go, please let me know what your thoughts are. Thanks much, Joyce Bollinger

There is no way to directly change the internal tuner to receive digital/HD signals. I would simply purchase an external tuner unit, but be sure to get one that has at least component signal outputs and is HD. You want to be able view HD & not just digital. One of the small tuner boxes would get digital, but not HD. I personally have a Digital Stream tuner with a set I own and have been very pleased with it. The tuner has many extra features and also has an NTSC output I use for recording with a regular vcr. Shop for an HD tuner unit. You will be impressed by the kind of performance you will get from this set.
Older sets are fitted with analogue tuners which can't handle digital signals. The only way round the problem is if the TV can be used as a monitor via a scart input. The external freesat or digital set top box contain digital tuners which can then display the required digital information on the TV. These external units have scart output sockets at the back, specifically for this purpose. So it's a scart lead from your external digital device to the scart input socket at the back of the TV. The remote control for your external box is then used to select the required programmes
Since you are not using a set top box, you will probably only get channels up into the 70's, if available in your town, as most channels above this are digital, which analog cannot convert. As for the digital tuner, I have the same problen. It will not pick up any digital channels. Because of this, I have had to get a digital box(why in the hell should I have a digital tuner?) to recieve digital channels. I have the same tv you have, except a standard def. If you ever find out why your digital tuner won't work, I'd love to know myself. good luck, hope this helps.
