    I have an LG 26LC2D LCD TV....according to the adds when we bought it, it has the "ATSC/NTSC/QAM Clear Tuners" but I can figure out how to get the signal. The Menu option to check the signal is greyed out and I can't select it. The only thing I can find in the owners manual is "Digital Signals: Only when the input signal is DTV or CADTV , this function is available." I'm not really electronics savy so I'm not sure what that means? Anybody help???

From the side of the carton in which it came:
CONSUMER ALERT: This television receiver has only an analog broadcast tuner and will require a converter box after February 17, 2009 to receive over-the-air broadcasts with an antenna because of the U.S.'s transition to digital broadcasting. Analog-only TVs should continue to work as before with cable and satellite TV services, gaming consoles, VCRs, DVD players, and similar products. For more information, call the Federal Communications Commission at 1-888-225-5322 (TTY: 1-888-835-5322), or visit the commission’s digital-television Web site at: www.dtv.gov.
The only other thing I could add to this, is that the Post Office in 2009 will get the task of handing out $40.00 coupons to to anyone wishing to purchase a converter.

I have a sylvania 20'' edtv no tuner or picture from cable


Does the set have any audio/video jacks on the back? Have you tried hooking to those?

If the tuner is bad cable can be hooked via a box or even using a old vcr to the rear jacks===switching to that input and bypass the tv tuner.

It will also tell you if problem is with the tuner.

Let me know if you have questions.

Hi malumbender,
Your tv dosn't have a digital tuner, in order to recieve OTA (over the air) digital signals you will need a Digital Converter Box.
Here is a link to a government website for coupons for the box. The coupons are for $40 off the purchase price of the box. There is a waiting list but they will come available as other coupons expire.
https://www.dtv2009.gov/

here is another site for antenna and channel line up.

I hope this helps and please rate this solution, please keep in mind that a "Thanks For Trying" rating is negative.

Digital TV??


Your set does not have the correct tuner in it. However, the broadcast change only effects those that use an external antenna for reception. If you are using cable, satelite or any other service for TV, you do not need the converter.

SYLVANIA 6620LG TV - DTV??


The ;quick answer is YES, you will need a converter box to receive digital broadcasts. This set has only an analog tuner built-in. That is why it is HDTV "ready" (ready for you to add a tuner).

As for HDTV vs EDTV it is a matter of resolution. Your set is capable of EDTV resolution, which is better than SDTV (standard definition TV) but not quite as good as HDTV. With a digital tuner you will be able to view all digital programming, even HD, and it will look excellent, though not quite as sharp as a set with higher definition.
