Will sony KV35s66 accept a digital tuner?

Hello all= I have a sony kv-35s66 that I am happy with but would like to experience OTA HD as a way to ease into the upgrade. I really have no complaints with this TV. My question is, "Is the tv HD ready? Can I attach an HD tuner and get a better picture? If it is possible, I would appreciate any suggestions on which tuner to choose. I'm looking for the best value for the dollars I spend. Thanks

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.

Can not tune tv since change over

The KV-32FS100 only has an analog tuner (NTSC). Unless there is a low-power analog station still broadcasting in your area, you will not be able to watch OTA stations. (I've got one in my area that barely comes in.) If your local cable still sends an analog signal, you won't need a set top box to watch that subscribed service.

Otherwise, you need a set top box to watch TV. A digital to analog converter (the boxes that were available with the government coupon before the switch over) will give you over the air stations. The basic models only provide SD output; there are a few HD models available. Otherwise, you can use a satellite reciever, cable box (for digital cable service), or something like the Boxee or Sling with tuner. (There are a few different models of the Boxee; one added a tuner with a USB dongle. The newest model of the Boxee has the ATSC tuner built in.)

Note: OTA digital signal quality is either a strong enough signal for the tuner or no signal will be present. You need to point the antenna in the correct direction to receive the signal from your local transmitters. The type of antenna and its placement will also change the number of watchable channels. You can use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to get more information. Antennaweb assumes an outdoor antenna but gives a conservative list of stations. If the signal is split to several devices, you may need an amplifier to get a watchable signal. (Sometimes amplifiers fail and you won't receive any stations, so test without the splitter or amplifier by using a direct cable to one TV.)

I hope this helps.

Hello, I have a Sony KV-36XBR450 36" TV, and heard that it was "HD" ready but needed an upgrade. at this point I would like to know it that upgrade is still available and if so does, does...

Hi,

Your KV36XBR450 is HD ready which means that you will need a set top box to receive the HD signal. Comcast will provide this for you naturally at an additional expense. Your other option would be to purchase a set top box and use and OTA (over the air) antenna which will allow you to receive your local broadcasts in HD.

I am sorry, however i have no heard about upgrade for this set. There is nothing available even with Sony.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Can the tuner be upgraded to get digital signals?

There is no way to directly change the internal tuner to receive digital/HD signals. I would simply purchase an external tuner unit, but be sure to get one that has at least component signal outputs and is HD. You want to be able view HD & not just digital. One of the small tuner boxes would get digital, but not HD. I personally have a Digital Stream tuner with a set I own and have been very pleased with it. The tuner has many extra features and also has an NTSC output I use for recording with a regular vcr. Shop for an HD tuner unit. You will be impressed by the kind of performance you will get from this set.

I don't know how a program it, since you change digital.

So far as I know the HLN series does not have an ATSC tuner, thus no over the air (OTA) reception. You can probably still get a $40 coupon for an OTA ATSC to NTSC converter. Note that will NOT get you high definition (HD). With Dish you can get HD receivers that do get OTA ATSC both HD and SD. With Direct, no OTA AFAIK. With cable you would need a QAM tuner, not in your TV AFAIK to get clear channels as required for locals. Otherwise cable needs a Set Top Box for digital and scrambled channels although the standard definition (SD) non-scrambled channels work with your NTSC tuner. Too bad there seem to be no ATSC to 5-cable RCA or HDMI HD converters except Dish. -Ken

Maxent lcd

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.

Sony Trinitron KV35S66

Dear EDKELL,
Before you buy that HD flat panel. Try this; disconnect the cable going in to your cable box and connect it directly to your set's cable RF connector at the back of the TV set, then try changing channels with the TV's remote, you may need to do an Auto Program first. Also make sure you select the correct tuner, that is tuner A, or B.
Hope that does it!

No pic/sound from inputs

Already post other solution about this. On Sony TVs, the common problem is loose connections. Your TV have a ssb ( vertical position) unplug and re solder. Other thing, Tuner will be in loose connection too. Try and I hope this work for you.
