Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

Put up a digital HD antenna outside on a 20 " ft pole. Used it on an older TV with the assistance of a SDTV Digital to Analog converter box. Recieved upwards of 30 channels very clear. Decided to hook the same antenna minus the converter box assuming this 2 year old HD LCD Flat Screen is Digital ready and have no need to convert anything to analog.

Hello
\015\012Although your Samsung has HDTV comailant tuner inside, it must get sufficiant signas strength to memorize all the HDTV channels. Normally HDTV signals are weak compare to analogue transnsmission signals, and contain more details. As transmission details increased, bandwidth also increses with it, which inversly down the signal strength that falls on the antenna. That is why everyone uses the converter box, which will get one or two step upward the signal. Moreover, large screen TV circuits are so designed to receive strong signals, especially to HDTV signals.
\015\012The internal tuner has a large bandwidth, but small amplifying power. It is same to all the HDTVs irrespecitve of which company produces it. Never bother about the price of the converter; give importance to its perfomance only. OK.

My Durabrand dwt1304 was hooked up to cable. I now have relocated the TV into my workshop and am attempting to hook it up to a digital converter and an antenna. Turning the TV on, I am getting a "Helpful Hints" message on the screen that asks if I have performed an "AUTO PRESET CH". I found this on the remote's menu and ran it, after which the screen gets the message, "NO TV SIGNALS". At that point, I can get the TV to do nothing else. Trying to run through setup with the digital converter

I own a Westinghouse LTV-32W1 and I am trying to hook Comcast basic cable up to it through the coaxial input. But, the only coaxial input is labeled ANTENNA.. I had the TV scan channels from cable AND antenna and it only found one channel. Analog at that. But, it doesn't do anything. How do I run basic cable to this TV? I thought, because it was HD-ready that I wouldn't need a box. :/
