This TV set doesn't have a digital tuner and you will need a digital converter box to receive over the air channels.
You still an antenna to receive the signal and then to connect it to your digital converter box. The programming should be easy.
The converter box should come with the user's guide on how to hook it up and program it.
This tv have the capabillity for the Full HD max resolution 1080i or 1080p.The problems u have is not the tv capabilities.The tv incomming broadcasting signals are vary like DTV,SD,480i,720i low end HD.Max HD resolutions are 1080p or 1080i.
No. all flat screens have converter chip built in. If you are having problems getting channels, make sure you go to the settings, and broadcast settings, and make sure it is on AIR for regular tv, or CATV for cable.
Looking at the manual, the specifications indicate that this is an NTSC TV. You would need an ATSC tuner (a digital converter box) to convert the digital signals into the analog ones that this TV can receive. You may also need an antenna designed for DTV signals to get a good reception.
I should mention, however, that if it's connected to cable (or certain satellite services), you won't need a converter to watch the TV - you'll receive the digital signal (although you won't have the 1080-pixel HD resolution - the 36A50 only has 850 lines of resolution).
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance. H2H
Your TV is an "HD-Ready" television. What this means is that your TV is ready to accept HD input from an outside source, but doesn't have the ability to produce the content itself. It is a monitor and does not have a digital tuner. Without a digital tuner (or for cable a QAM tuner) you will not receive OTA broadcast HD.
You need to purchase a High Definition capable set-top converter box. The converter box will have HD component out and may have HDMI out, either will feed your HD Ready TV.
