Unless it specifically states it has an ATSC tuner (not to be confused with an NTSC tuner), or it has a CableCARD slot, it's only has an analog tuner, if it has a tuner at all.

Not a big deal, as long as the TV has some kind of input, you can get a Digital Converter box which will decode the digital TV transmission back to analog and feed it to your TV.

How can I switch from digital to analog?


If this is a CRT then you do not have a choice to get digital over analog. It is an analog TV. You can get what is called a scan converter to convert a digital signal to an analog but you will not be viewing a digital signal. To view a true digital signal you need a digital tv that has a resolution of 720P or higher. Most TVS are 1080P standardize which is the most common.

What would happen if I hooked up a analog to digital tv converter to a scanner


The scanner would not be able to decode the digital TV signal. You would hear "buzzing", which would be an aglomeration of the digital TV signal. It would be competely incoherent.

Hi,can I record digital transmissions on my sony slv-se820g vcr barry


You can record a digital TV signal on a VHS VCR but only in analog format. The digital signal must be input to the VCR by some component which has a yellow composite video output and a white audio output such as a digital cable TV box or satellite receiver. For over-the-air digital TV, either the TV must output analog video or you need a DTV converter box connected to the VCR. Bottom line, the digital signal must be converted to analog for the VCR since VHS VCRs generally are analog recorders.

All ready used box once. Now going back to antenna. Not receiving display or menu on T.V. screen.


All TV over the air is transmitted as a digital signal now. In order to see it on an older TV (read Analog), you must have a signal that you can receive(antenna hook up) and a digital to analog converter box. That box allows you to see your digital signal on older TVs. The signal is sent from the antenna to the box via a RF connection, and decoded to channel 3 or 4 (your choice). for further information see Consumer Report at:

We are in Ghana we need frequency and we update to get more channel


Your flat panel TV is probably factory set to receive ATSC signals (Hi-def DIGITAL TV), whereas
Ghana may not have converted from analog TV (NTSC) yet.

Digital TV's cannot receive analog signals. I'm just guessing about whether or not Ghana supports
Hi-Def broadcasts - you'll have to check with (any) TV channel in Ghana. The Analog-to-digital
conversion is an expensive one at the broadcast end, and may not have happened yet in Ghana.

The US conversion took place by FCC mandate June 12, 2009.
There are available $65 (USD) digital-to-analog converters, but what you may need is an
analog-to-digital converter, which doesn't exist. Your Flat-panel TV amy have to wait until Ghana
begins broadcasting a Hi-Def TV channel.

For a HD antenna, a regular old rabbit ear-type antenna will do.

Do i have a digital television?


Unless your TV has an internal NTSC/QAM tuner it will require an external digital --> analog converter to receive digital broadcast signals after the analog shutoff date.

If you have Cable TV, most providers will continue to support analog signals on their wire so you will not require a converter box.
