Re: [wpshooter] running digital converter box on digital TV

The FCC has issued the following mandates for devices entering the US:

By July 1, 2005 all televisions with screen sizes over 36 inches (91 cm) must include a built-in ATSC DTV tuner
By March 1, 2006 all televisions with screen sizes over 25 inches (64 cm) must include a built-in ATSC DTV tuner
By March 1, 2007 all televisions regardless of screen size, and all interface devices that include a tuner (VCR, DVD player/recorder, DVR) must include a built-in ATSC DTV tuner.

Page 51 of User Manual says: Television System NTSC standard.

Digital to Analog converter boxes output S-I-G-N-A-L to the television via the following:
RF antenna connector (TV MUST be set to a particular channel)
Composite RCA jacks (TV MUST be set to Input that corresponds to set of jacks you're connected to)
Component RCA jacks (TV MUST be set to Input that corresponds to set of jacks you're connected to)
HDMI jack (TV MUST be set to Input that corresponds to HDMI jack you're connected to).

It should NOT damage TV.
I don't see any Factory default procedure in User Manual (I did NOT see if any accessible via service area).


So my instinct says that you have a set that has ONLY a NTSC tuner. (NO ATSC tuning capability)
P.S. - or DTV converter box brand/model.
