LCD TV Advice Needed.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello,

My father is looking to by a new LCD TV and needs some advice. He's concerned that the TV won't be compatible with the coaxial cable because he's still using basic cable and hasn't upgraded to digital cable.

I really don't know much about TV's so I can't give him much advice. Should he be concerned? And if so, is there any way he can work around it?

Thanks for your time.

I believe as long as the tv has a QAM tuner, you will get limited local channels without subscribing to digital cable.

Every television out there will have the coax in. It's the ones labeled as monitors that usually don't have any tuners built into them. Your father should be fine with any tv labeled with the tuners. Everything is digital now so there's no worry for that, whether he's using an antenna or subscribing to something.
