Question about Zenith C34W23 34" TV

Open Question

C34w23 cannot pick up DTV

I can only pick up analog stations and cannot pick up the digital broadcasts off my cable system using the Zenith c34w23 HDTV. Using the same connection I can pick up analog, digital broadcasts and ABC, NBC & CBS in HDTV with my Samsung HDTV. Both are supposed to have built in ATSC tuners but on the Samsung will pick up the digital side. Why would one be able to pick it up and not the other, unless the tuner is actually bad.

In your on screen menu have you gone to set up? Here you would select cable and not off air and then do an automatich channelprogramming. I hope this helps.

What specific model of JVC multi-system TV do you have? What is the signal source?

The majority of the JVC multi-system TVs that I've researched only have analog tuners (NTSC, PAL). The AV-29LX is an example of the older JVC TVs. Since most over-the-air signals are digital, you will need a digital-to-analog OTA signal converter to watch any signal from an aerial TV. If you have a cable system that has upgraded to digital cable, you will need a cable box.

Converter boxes are harder to find but there are a few remaining. Here's one for the US: http://www.amazon.com/Magnavox-DTV-Digital-Analog-Converter/dp/B0013ZKZGU .

I wish that I had better news for you.

(A few low-power stations still broadcast in the analog format. However, you have to be really close to the station or have an outdoor antenna to have a chance at receiving the signal.)

Tv tuner will ot detect digital signal in windows media center, vista

All US TV signals are now digital, but most TV tuners are like our old TVs - analog. Are you sure your tuner is a DTV tuner? If not, you will need to replace it or get a DTV converter. A DTV converter will not let your computer pick the channel and time though.

But one footnote. Broadcast digital TV is often not the same a cable digital TV. If you get a cable digital signal it is encrypted to the actual serial number of the receiving box. No broadcast DTV converter can do this. This is how the cable company now controls the number of receivers and one has to pay for EVERY set.

Dtv and more channels

The original date for digital conversion for television broadcasts was February 17, 2009. The date has been extended to June 12, 2009 by Congress, at which time all analog television broadcasting will be discontinued. Some stations, due to technical reasons, have already made the transition, while others continue to broadcast an analog signal. This may attribute to your only receiving 4 stations via your "rabbit ear" antenna.

You can check the website of your favorite stations to see when they will make the transition to digital broadcasting. Also, households are eligible for up to two coupons for $40 each toward the purchase of certain converter boxes. You can check out the details at https://www.dtv2009.gov/ for more information regarding the coupons.

Picking up tv station

Yes, lock out the frequency, or wait until digital broadcast comes int effect. DTV will be effective in 2009 where all television broadcasts must be done by cable or satellite. This means no antenna broadcasts.

Philips CCB130AT02 TV/VCR combo

Is this an Analog TV? Does it have a picture tube and not an LCD or plasma screen? Most likely this is a Analog TV.

If it is an Analog TV (and I would bet that it is), then no, it does not have a digital (QAM) tuner to pick up DTV broadcasts. The fact that it has a VCR also indicates that its an Analog TV.

If you are picking up your TV signals from an outside antenna and not cable, then yes, you will need a converter box to convert the new digital signals to Analog so that you can continue to use your TV set.

If you are using cable to receive your channels, the cable company already provides the conversion for you and your TV will continue to work as before.

The government is giving out coupons to help consumers defray the costs of purchaing a converter box. The following sites are good places to obtain more information.
