Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV

1 Answer

I purchased my HL-P5663W in 2004. It is HDTV compatible but I wonder if it has a built-in digital tuner so that I can get local signals without subscribing to cable TV.

I would like to know if the Hitachi 51UWX20B television can be connected to the internet.


Your Hitachi 51UWX20B is an HDTV-Ready TV. No Digital Tuner. HDTV-Ready means that your TV set is capable of displaying analog and high-definition digital pictures, but without a digital tuner, it cannot receive the digital signal. An HDTV-Ready requires an external high-definition TV receiver (digital tuner) in order to receive HDTV signals. These external receivers can be called an HDTV Tuner, set-top-box, decoder or DTV Converter Box . So you will be required to purchase a converter box to receive over the air programming from an external antenna.

Attenna hook up


Yes, This set does not have a digital tuner built in. All over the air signals are now digital. This set will work without a converter if hooked up to standard cable,DVD,VCR or Video game console. If you purchase a DVD with a digital tuner built in you can skip the converter box and hook your HDTV antenna directly to it.

Does this tv have a digital tuner? i thought it did because it said hdtv on it when I bought it in 2004. but I just bought a digital antenna and i'm getting nothing but snow after i scan for channels. is...


Sorry to say, your HDTV-Ready - Requires separate receiver to view HDTV signals. SDTV (Standard Definition) - has built-in digital receivers/decoders and do not require the purchase of any separate components in order to display digital signals. It provides lower image quality than EDTV or HDTV, but higher image quality than analog TV. SDTV is displayed using an aspect ratio of 4:3. I hope this helps and good luck.

Is mhy samsung not hdtv?


You must have a digital tuner built in to the tv if you want to scan for Freeview digital channels. If you have digital cable or satellite the decoder box will unscramble the signal and send it to the tv through a scart connection or HDMI cable. Not all tv's have a digital tuner built in but if it is HDTV it can show an increased resolution image if the output from the cable box or dvd player is high definition.

I have a Samsung HL-S6186W 61" DLP HDTV I could get the hd channels over the air with an antenna before but now I can't get any thru cable without going thru my dvd recorder tuner first which degrades the...


Select TV input, Press Menu, Select Channel, in menu Antenna=Cable (for you), (then perhaps, Auto Program with Cable or Air+Cable), tweak Channel List, turn on LNA if needed, shouldn't be.
Somewhere there may be different modulations, some offset the channel a fraction and are important for channels above 13. I'm basing this on my non-cable Samsung HL-T5687.
BTW, I had an HLS until it gave trouble, paid for an upgrade to LED from bulb when I got HLT. Very pleased, until it fails. -Ken

Dtv ready?


Going to the following link will help you to find out if your television is DTV ready or not:

http://www.dtvtransition.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=51&Itemid=94

Using their online tool, select the Brand (Akai) and the Model from the list. If you cannot find your model in the list (which I was not able to for your television), they are saying that you most likely do not have a digital tuner.

All is not lost, however. As stated on the aforementioned site, you can consider one of the following options:

  • Purchase a digital-to-analog converter box that plugs into an existing television. The boxes, which are expected to cost between $40 - 70 will be available for purchase in 2008. Beginning in February 2008, U.S. households can request up to two coupons valued at $40 each. Each coupon can go toward the purchase of a single set-top converter box that will allow you to continue watching FREE "over-the-air" television on an analog set.
  • Subscribe to a cable, satellite or telecommunications service provider if all desired local broadcast stations are carried by that service.
  • Purchase a new television set with a built in digital tuner.

    Listed on the page is further information that may help you to determine the status of your TV:

  • Consult your owner's manual. If that's not possible, you may be able to look up information about your TV set on the manufacturer's website. Or, you can take an up-close look at your TV set. You are trying to find out if your set has an input connection labeled "digital input" or "ATSC" (for Advanced Television Systems Committee, which is developing the DTV format).
  • If you bought your TV set before 1998, it probably doesn't have a digital tuner at all. Almost every TV set made before 1998 was a traditional "analog" set that can't display digital TV signals without either a special converter or a cable TV connection. If you bought a big-screen, projection TV between 1998 and 2004, it's possible there's a built-in digital tuner inside. But chances aren't great. Only a limited percentage of projection TV sets (and generally only those 42 inches in diameter or larger) included digital tuners before 2004.
  • If you've purchased a new TV set since 2004, your chances of having a built-in digital tuner improve dramatically. Starting in 2004, many of the TV sets sold at popular electronics stores have featured digital tuners that will let you receive the new digital over-the-air broadcasts starting in February 2009. But be wary: It's not a sure thing. Even some of the newer TV sets are purely display monitors that lack the internal circuitry needed to pick up digital broadcasts. Usually these sets have been advertised as "HD-ready" or "HDTV monitor" sets. That means they can display digital and high-definition signals, but they need help getting those signals in the first place. You'll still need a special converter or a cable TV connection.

    Is my tv digital compatible or not


    https://www.dtv2009.gov/FAQ.aspx What you need to know is whether your TV set has something called a “digital tuner” already built in. If it does, your TV set will work after February 17, 2009. The best way to determine whether your TV set has a digital tuner built in is to consult your owner’s manual. If that’s not possible, you may be able to look up information about your TV set on the manufacturer’s website. Or, you can take an up-close look at your TV set. In any case, you’re trying to find out if your set has an input connection labeled “digital input” or “ATSC” (for Advanced Television Systems Committee, which is the DTV format).

    Here are some general guidelines that may help:

    TV set made before 1998 was a traditional “analog” set. If you bought a big-screen, projection TV between 1998 and 2004, it may have a built-in digital tuner inside. But chances aren’t great. Only a limited percentage of projection TV sets (and generally only those 42 inches in diameter or larger) included digital tuners before 2004.

    If you purchased a new TV set since 2004, your chances of having a built-in digital tuner improve dramatically. Starting in 2004, many of the TV sets sold at popular electronics stores feature digital tuners that will work after February 17, 2009. But it’s not a sure thing.

Usually these sets have been advertised as “HD-ready” or “HDTV monitor” sets. That means they can display digital and high-definition signals, but they need help getting those signals in the first place. You’ll still need a special converter or a cable TV connection. Hope this info above helps. Also, check your manual, and if you don't have it some manufacturers, (Philips does for some models) offer the manual on their websites.

    HDTV COMPATABLE


    the hd sat box is your converter and is compatible to your tv (1080i only). if you are asking about local braodcast (over the air) this set doesn't have an ATSC (digital) tuner so you would need a box for that. but your sat company may be giving you your local broadcast in HD.
    so if you are presently using an aeral antenna for your locals yes you will need the box.
    if your locals are already being supplied by your sat company no the sat box is your converter.
    note: some sat boxes have ATSC tuners built in so your antenna can be used by the sat box as well.
