Does my Insigna Tv Model number NSFTV27, serial number 065260705675 have a built in digital tuner? Also, what kind of antenna should I get for this model?


Hello
Your Insigina TV has no built in digital tuner. It has VHF/UHF/CABLE IN tuner. It is not a digital one. OK.

When I hook up the cable to the RCA truflat tv the screen stays blue. I had it working with a cable box, do you know why it's not working with just the cable?


Your cable system is probably digital, and the tuner in this TV isn't compatible with the system. The cable box output was a regular TV channel 3 or 4 signal the TV could tune in. Without the box, though, your TV's tuner sees nothing. You'll need to stick with the box.

How do i tune in my digital cable on my analog tv?


You'll need a digital cable box for that, I'm afraid. The analog tuner in the set isn't compatible with the digital cable signal. The cable company in my city just dropped their analog service. Now you either need a digital converter box, or a "cable box lite" called a digital transport adapter. For digital off-the-air broadcasting you need a digital tuner and probably an amplified or outdoor antenna. The analog TV is rapidly becoming pretty useless except as a display device as analog channels disappear.

Model has one NTSC RF and two NTSC composite inputs. It's compatible with analog Over The Air and non-scrambled analog cable broadcasts. After the US analog cutoff (currently scheduled for June 12) it WILL require a digital to analog converter to receive ATSC digital TV transmisions.

Digital Conversion for DFTV270A


A VERY short search on Google (first hit when using "DFTV270A digital") shows this:
Amazon.com: SANSUI DFTV270 27" Flat Digital TV with ATSC/QAM Tuner ...The DFTV270 receives digital terrestrial and cable signals without the need for an additional tuner.

People should at least make a minimal effort in looking up answers for themselves. An equivalent questions is asking if a FlexFuel can use E85 gas.

Do I need a conversion box??


Hello there jimmysac77,

I've spent some time trying to find some information on your television, but am hitting a brick wall. I can only assume from this that your television is an older model, as a general rule of thumb if your television was purchase before 1998 it should have an analog only tuner.

If this is the case a digital converter box may be needed, if you get your TV signal from cable television or a satellite services they will automatically convert the signal for you so a box would not be required.

If you have more questions on the digital conversion BestBuy.com has links and FAQ's on the subject at:

Digital signal conversion


If you have cable TV, satellite TV, or FIOS, the coupon eligible converter boxes aren't needed and aren't useful with those services.
They gov't coupon converter boxes are only good for reception with a regular TV antenna or rabbit ears.

According to the specs on epinions.com, no, this TV does not have a digital tuner. So, if you use a rooftop TV antenna (not satellite dish) or an indoor TV antenna, you WILL need an ATSC to NTSC converter box. You need not wait until next year, however, as most U.S. TV stations are also broadcasting digital (ATSC) now.

Will sony KV35s66 accept a digital tuner?


The Sony "S" series is not HD compatible in any way. To see an HD program you would require an HD down-conversion box. This would make the pictures look like regular TV, but may have some distortions because of the 16:9 scan ratio from the HD programs, unless you model series is 16:9 compatible.
