k, well i bought an HDTV with a built in tuner, also samsung , http://product.samsung.com/cgi-bin/nabc/product/b2c_product_detail.jsp?eUser=&pr od_id=TXP2670WHX%2fXAA Do i still need an HD antenna to get the over the air signals or just when i flip onto ABC with CSI it will then become HD ? because of the internal OAM and ATSC tuners
Good boy. I see that you posted on 2 different threads here. Yes, you would need an HD antenna (basically, a UHF antenna with a fancier name). Depends on you location, you may want to try out different ones at different locations (remember the old good days before cable TV?). Your TV should do an autosearch for HD signals. If it doesn't, try put in the channel # and add "-1". For example, your regular local CBS is channel 4, you may have to put in "4 - 1" to get to the HD frequency. Read the manual. Or you may want to investigate into the possibility mentioned by fx in the other thread about clear carry of local network HD.
Im getting Digital cable (not HD) installed in about 5 days... i will then have a Digital Cable "BOX" will that be sufficent instead of buying an Antenna? ive been reading you can use that as the antenna but plz let me know if thats wrong... otherwise ima get the antenna soon
DC, where you live and which is your cable co. have a lot to do with you getting to watch the network HD. Do yourself a favor and talk to your cable co. to find out if you can get the "basic" HD service to add on to you digital cable service without any or too much extra charges. If it is too much according to your budget, then go the antenna route. Try this link: http://www.antennasdirect.com/hdtv_antenna_selector.html
Networks broadcast their HD signal at a different frequency from their SD channels. However, they remap the HD channel # back to the analog channel # but add the "-". For some TV, if you want to go to HD channel equivalent of channel 4, you'd punch "4-1" in your remote. Refer to you TV owner's manual.
No where in my manual does it say anything about the 4.1 or.. "4-1" can somone explain how i go about this because i want to watch a HD show tomorrow and wanna make sure i get it rite, il be buying my HD ANTENNA tomorrow to get it all set up... if i just run a scan thru the HD Antenna will it automaticall just pick up the "HD" channel the (4-1, 4.1) version?
Patience grashopper, buy your equipment first, ask questions later.
And if you buy Samsung, say yes to the extended warranty. You will probably need it.
"his advice has "proven" to be questionable in the past,present and future."
Now Joe is a fuking psychic and can predict the future, go figure! I gave sound advice for this poster to quit triple posting the same questions over and over and over in 3 seperate threads until he actually buys something. Joe stay away from where you have no clue.
"stay away from where you have no clue"??? what does that mean?? Peas, I am truly sorry you have to resort to unsavory language to get your point across, but I do feel that you comments are useless and deserve checks and balances so that you don't teach more people to be as balmy as you are.
dC you are not at fault here. You just have to understand there are some foolish, lonely people on this forum that need attention but try to get it by being derisive toward folks such as yourself.
