Will the digital TV signal cause damage to an analog TV that does not have a digital converter box?
5 people found this useful
It is not possible to convert an analog television to a digital television. However, by using a digital set top receiver, it is possible to receive digital signals and deliver… them as an analog signal to an analog television. Digital receivers are not expensive, starting at around $25 in US and Â£20 in the UK. They will allow all terrestrial channels to be received in the same way that a digital television will. Cable and satellite receivers can also receive digital signals and will provide an analog output that can be used with older televisions. With these options, there is no need to replace analog televisions right away. Remember that analog only televisions will not be HD so don't expect a sudden increase in picture quality when the digital receivers are used.

A digital converter box for a Symphonic TV can be found at mostlocal electronic stores. Cable companies also provide digitalconverter boxes for subscribers.
How do you convert your cable company's digital signal to analog so you can watch it on your tv without paying for a second set top box?
\nIt's not so much in the conversion of the signal to analog, but rather, the frequency ranges the cable company may use to send the signals down the cable. In other words, w…ill a standard digital converter box that's out on the market today, have the ability to cover the cable company's sent signal? You may get some of it converted, but I doubt you'd be able to cover all of the available frequencies.
You're probably not going to be able to do much about it. Analog is analog and digital is digital. If the TV has only an analog tuner built into it, it's not going to be able …to make the transition, unless of course, you can get some type of tuner adapter for it. But that kind of defeats the purpose of having a hand held TV. You can convert it with a converter box.
Yes if it has a NTSC Analog tuner and No a ATSC Digital Tuner will not receive NTSC Analog and vice versa.
I think so...my digital cable box was REALLY warm to the touch. When I turned my TV on it played a few minutes then went out. We have had digital cable for about 5 years and n…o problem...but then the box never was hot either. I think something went wrong in the box and fried my TV. Can't prove it...but my TV was fine until the box heated up....then it didn't work anymore.
No. You only need a converter box for analog TV and only if you receive your TV "over the air" with an antenna. If you have cable or satellite TV, you don't need a converter.
If all TV signals are now digital Insight communications is converting that signal to analog so that people can use old televisions how can they then charge to convert it back to digital service?
The system was analog when it was built and that's how it got to your house. They to had to buy and install new HD equipment to get the HD signal to your house. Their extra co…st ends up being your extra cost.
Yes, but only with a digital tv set-top converter box.
There are two answers to the question - Digital or analog. Here is the reason why: Digital signal are very robust signals as long as they do not fall below a certain strength… and quality. As long as the signal is above that threshold, a receiver should be able to interpret the data correctly. That means a full quality image even though the signal may only just be above the strength and quality threshold. Analog signals need a higher signal strength and quality to achieve full quality images at the receiver. As the signal strength and quality reduce, more noise and other distortion can be detected in the image. Despite this, a signal strength and quality far lower than an equivalent digital signal will still be received. The image may be degraded to the point where noise is intrusive, but the content can still be seen. Broadcasters take into account the differing requirements of digital television and will make efforts to ensure that the signals received are of sufficient quality to provide reliable programs. It is perhaps worth pointing out that signal strength and signal quality are two separate measurements. Quality is just as important as strength so signal strength alone will not guarantee good reception in all cases.
Most all boxes are compatible with all tv sets. The converter box will have multiple outputs to connect to the input of the tv set. If the set has the red, blue and green conn…ectors, look for a converter box that has the same outputs. This type of connection will render the best picture.
How do you convert the analog signal from your rfoutput on your sky box to be received on your digital only tv?
Almost all modern televisions still support analog RF signals. The input selection will usually be marked as "ATV" or "Analog Television". Alternatives are to use the analog …video output form the Sky receiver. Again, almost all televisions have a number of analog video inputs. If the television only has HDMI inputs, then the final option is to use an analog to HDMI converter. They are available from video and television specialists and will deliver an HDMI signal to the television,
In the US and Europe they are almost all digital.
Most big electronics stores (such as Dixons, Comet, Currys etc)sell digi-boxes. You can even buy them on -line from Amazon oreBay.
