High Definition TV (HDTV) Fundamentals


Almost all television’s manufactured since 2007 has a built-in digital tuner, or more accurately an ATSC tuner, for receiving over-the-air TV. Some digital televisions do not use a low noise receiver (common in analog TV’s), and may not get some weaker signals. One reason not to use a low noise receiver is to cut cost, another is satellite and cable TV does not (usually) require a low noise receiver.
