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

That year of TV will most likely not have a digital tuner. You can still use the TV with a digital converter box as long as you are getting your reception over the air with an antenna.

Trying to convert from cable to antenna...I get no signal and it seemingly goes into sleep mode


Consult your TV's owner manual and enter "set up mode" to switch the RF or Antenna input from: CATV / Cable to: Antenna / Off Air. Then, allow the TV to scan VHF & UHF for signals strong enough to "tune in". You may need to upgrade your antenna in order to collect enough signal to display video properly. Make sure that your TV has a digital tuner (ATSC) as the old analog tuners (NTSC) have no signal to tune since broadcasters were forced to digital transmitters by the FCC years ago.

Use the site linked below to help you select an antenna that will allow you to receive all signals possible at your location - without buying more antenna than you need.

DVD recorder has stopped picking up a signal from the tv.


Double check connections first and try using the factory settings reset, before replacing the card.

Can the tuner be upgraded to get digital signals?


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.

My sony bravia digital channels always drop out of signal. Sometimes a channel has no signal for a couple of weeks. Could that be a fault with the tv?


For tuner problems, especially the digital channels, you should check for a TV firmware update at www.sonystyle.com. I was having some strange loss of digital channels on our 40" Bravia, starting with channels only appearing for a second before the screen produced a 'No Signal' message. After we tried the automatic retuning, then we could not even get the one second signal. None of this appeared on the description of the download. However, we downloaded the patch to our PC, loaded the file (19 MB) onto a small flash drive, which we then used to upgrade the firmware in the TV. All our digital tuner problems disappeared!!

Digital or analog tuner


Your set has a NTSC tuner for the over air broadcasts. You will need a converter box if you wish to use an antenna. If you have cable or satellite, you are fine.

Will i be able to use my old panasonic dvd-rv26 for a tv


From the information I found, it does not have an ATSC tuner that you need to pick up the digital over the air TV signals. You will need one that does, check this page: http://www.ezdigitaltv.com/Digital_Recorders.html

I don't know if my TV's digital tuner will work when they switch over to digital broadcasting. My TV does have one but during a test it didn't work


The Sharp LC-19SB25U 19 in. HDTV LCD TV has both a NTSC and an ATSC tuner.

The NTSC tuner will stop working in Feb. 2009 but the included ATSC tuner is what you need for after the digital transition.

If this is not the model number or manufacturer of your TV, then please post them.

Reception upgrade or what ?


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

TV Tuner


Open your program files on your old HDD, Find your Tv Tuner drivers in there, Now you can either drag them onto your new hard drive or copy them into the Program files on your new Hard drive. Make sure you have them in you new one and then unhook you old HDD and Open TV tuner Files should self install. Or you could also, If you know the name of the tv tuner model and series go to Add New hardware Icon in your control panel. Do it from there when it wants you to install from a specific place choose that option then the name of the device should be there under the network option, find your device and install it from that location I sure Hope that Helps you out
