Hi, I live in a flat in London with a shared rooftop aerial (no idea of spec). I have a Sony KDL-46X2000. The built-in freeview tuner doesn't seem to recieve any HD channels. Is the built-in tuner the...


Make sure you have a good connection from antenna to TV. Check antenna and cable and cable connection to TV. Select DIGITAL button on TV remote when wanting HD channels. Remember HD channels are always digital. Also, any given TV station may not be broadcasting in HD at a given time. They can broadcast in digital but in standard definition sometimes. Your TV has a built-in DVB-T tuner. Try executing a channel scan to pick up all available channels. On-screen menus go to Digital Setup, then Digital Tuning, you can auto-tune or manual tune channels. The TV should take a few min. to scan thru available channels and store the channels its finds. Check with anyone in your area to see if they get HD channels (it is possible to be outside of the range of some TV stations) Your TV is a 2006 model and should still be compatible with local digital TV broadcasts but keep in mind digital signals could change in the near future (DVB-T2) and you may need a tuner/converter box to make the TV compatible.

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.

I have a Philips TV, model HD2717 C101. All channels do not display--Why? It skips quite a few channels on scan, the only to get them is to actually select the channel individually.


Hi are you running it off of an antenna or cable?
Assuming you have a digital tuner and are selecting the proper type of channel search Ie: cable or air it could be that the tv needs a firmware update to the tuner.

I have experienced similar issues with several TV's I had an Olevia 37" HDTV that required a firmware update to get the tuner to properly decode channels.

I also have seen lots of cases were people have cable hooked up without a cable box and receive "mixed" channels.

I currently have Comcast and have 6 TV's hooked up 3 with cable boxes and 3 directly off the line. According to Comcast I should not be getting anything besides "basic" channels without a box but using the digital tuner in the TV's does pickup most of the channels and even some HD channels that are not there using their boxes.

Interestingly enough none of the TV's tuners decode the channels into the same "channel." As an example HGTV on 1 TV shows up as 84.4 but then 86.1 on the second and something like 84.11 on the third.

My recommendation run the auto program again then go through channel by channel and see if anything needs to be manually entered or deleted. I know this is a pain in the **** and takes about 20 minutes per TV but hopefully that will tell you if your TV tuner is relocating the channels to another channel.

Lastly if your tuner is not digital or if the tuner can't be updated you may have to use a secondary tuner such as one in a VCR to get the channels you desire.

This whole Digital Conversion that we have undergone has brought to light for me at least that our government and corporations don't care about the real world impact on the ordinary person.

Sure they made money on reallocating bandwidth and sure tons of new HDTV's and digital products (including digital cable) have been sold but I haven't come across anyone who feels they have benefited from the conversion forced upon us.

Hope this helps sorry about my rant.

Digital conversion


You are in good shape; the specs state that your model has an ATSC compatible tuner so you can receive either analog or digital.
BTW, if you are receiving via an antenna and have decent UHF reception (chan.s 15-69) you won't have to do anything. If you are on cable or satellite dish, they may charge extra for HD reception and a replacement cable box. Otherwise you'll just continue to have those black bars left and right.

I HAVE A 2004 RCA MODEL 24V511T. dO i NEED A DIGITAL TUNER IN ORDER TO FOR IT TO WORK AFTER FEBRUARY 17?


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.

Is My TV ATSC or NTSC?


Yes, you will need a converter box if you are currently getting TV off-the-air with a rooftop or indoor antenna. This TV does not have a digital tuner. You don't need a box if this set is being used on a cable or satellite system (unless your service provider tells you otherwise).

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.
