Does Digital TV allow analogue as well?

I am hoping that somebody can provide some advice.

I am looking to buy a new TV and have seen the Bush IDLCD26TV16HD 26in HD Ready Digital LCD TV advertised at AArgos at £299.99 whihc seems to be a good price.

I live in an area where supposedly we can't yet get digital but we have a freeview box that works except that from time to time the signal is flaky. Sometimes we need to revert back to the analogue TV.

My questionnis this: Does anybody know if this TV is purely digital or allows both a digital and anal;ogue signal to be used?

Yes it can also receive analogue TV, I believe.

Most LCD and plasma sets provide both an analogue and digital tuner - it allows you to still watch VCR recordings for instance.

The manual should detail how to find and tune programmes using the analogue tuner.

Cheers guys.

Now I think the technical side is sorted better see if it is pleasing to the eye to the missus!

The inclusion of a UHF tuner in the spec means that it is analogue capable

Matalan has begun selling a range of Bush electronic products including TVs - this model might even be cheaper there if they stock it.
