Generally recording machines fitted with an analogue tuner can only continue to be used to record digital tv by using a digital set-top box.
It would not be practical or economic to remove the internal analogue tuner and replace it with a digital tuner unless the person is a highly skilled and experienced repairer.

Digital set-top boxes are available from all sorts of outlets at all sorts of prices. Many surplus boxes can be found at boot sales, garage or yard sales or charity shops at very low prices.

Most boxes have the minimum of connections and often offer only a scart output but some of the older, more expensive and usually better quality boxes also contained a UHF tuner in a similar way to the old vhs recorders so even older tv sets could be used with digital even though no scart input was fitted.

    Thank you Vernon. I'm a retired Electronics Tech. and I would like to give it a try if I can find a replacement tuner New or used.

    Over here, in that case, I would begin at Farnell or RS components. Farnell is the bee's knees when it comes to providing boffins with electronic components and modules and ideas. I have a feeling they have an American parent but regardless of that you could do worse than starting there. They also provide a sort of updated radio club with a forum.
    Personally, I am still mourning for the passing of thermionic valves...

Is the Magnavox TFT LCD 17 MF200v/17 have a digital or analog tuner?


I believe it has an analog tuner (NTSC) only. The original remote is pictured here: http://www.replacementremotes.com/philips/buy-313923807911-remote-control.html . The TV is listed as having been available in 2004 from Amazon.com. The manufacturer didn't have to include a digital tuner until 2005 for 36"+ models. For a 17" TV, they didn't have to have a tuner until 2007.

I hope this helps.

How to switch from analog to digital


The LED LCD TV's came out in 2009. It already has a built in digital HD tuner.

Allen wants to know how to switch the TV between the built in analog tuner and built in digital tuner.

Switching between the two tuners is done by means of the "TV mode" switch on the remote control.

You will NOT be able to select analog channels if have NOT done analog tunning.

If you need to do a retuning then hit the "menu" button select "setup" then "plug and play" enter the default pin number 0000. When you are selecting the channel source to memorize make sure you select "digital and analog". This will then cause the TV to tune and memorize both the analog and digital channels.

For details refer to page 8 of the user manual.

No problem, I just want to know if this tv has a digital tuner? It says it has a "digital comb filter". Is that the same thing?


A digital comb filter is not a tuner. It helps improve the appearance of digital content by splitting the luminance (brightness) and chrominance (color) of a digital video signal (DVD, or other set-top box). This filter is only needed when digital content is going to the TV over RF (coax) or composite (analog) inputs. http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/tv-buying-guide18.htm has some details on the filter,

Please provide the model number of the TV for additional information about the tuner. Normally the tuners will be listed as NTSC (analog), ATSC (digital), Clear QAM (unencrypted digital cable) in the US. In other countries you have PAL (analog) or DVB-T (standard definition digital terrestrial) or DVB-C (standard definition digital cable) signals.

I hope this helps.

Will this tv need a digital converter box if we remove cable?


If you are refering to signal you receceive on an antenna, then yes. It's actually called a Digital Tuner. The standard analog tuners that are in most older TV's will work for the Analog signals that you will probibally still be receiving, the Digital signals will not be available to you. This will depend on if stations in your area are at transmitting in Digital or analog or both. These boxes are the devices the government was either giving away, or making availalbe for a low cost to those whom need it via cupons. This has ended, but you can check this gov site out that talks in detail about it. You can buy the Digital Tuner boxes for pretty cheap from what I havce seen, but you will probibally need an antenna also.

Digital Transition


It's analog.  You need to purchase a digital receiver.  I personally have a USB external digital tuner running in Media Center 2005.  Search Ebay for "ATSC usb".  There's a lot of different options and most of them are pretty inexpensive.  To use a digital tuner in Media Center 2005, you have to leave the analog tuner / tuners in also.  You should still be able to use your current remote control with the new digital tuner.

Does my tv have a digital tuner (RCA Model E13320, 2/2001)?


The digital tuner has nothing to do with the new signal you will be receiving in February of next year. The new video signal is a digital signal. The old video signal is analog. Your television receives the analog signal and converts it to what you see on television. You need a converter box to convert the new digital signal back to an analog signal your television can convert.
