My mother has a durabrand tv and I am trying to get her ready for a converter box as she is in a rest home in another state from me. So my question is is the Durabrand tv, model # DWT1905 digital ready or an hdtv. I believe it was purchased approx. 3 years ago.

Hi. Unfortunately, your tv is NOT digital ready, so if you want to watch anything, you will need a digital convertre box to get any channels, otherwise it's only good as a screen to hook up dvd's and video games to it. Sorry about that, but this new fangled electronic age we live in has made probably 250,000,000 tv's useless without some sort of converter device.
I hope this helps you out.
If you do go to get a converter box, I would just go with one of the inexpensive ones from Wal-Mart.
Rca and Magnavox have boxes for around 30-40 dollars.
Your Hitachi 51UWX20B is an HDTV-Ready TV. No Digital Tuner. HDTV-Ready means that your TV set is capable of displaying analog and high-definition digital pictures, but without a digital tuner, it cannot receive the digital signal. An HDTV-Ready requires an external high-definition TV receiver (digital tuner) in order to receive HDTV signals. These external receivers can be called an HDTV Tuner, set-top-box, decoder or DTV Converter Box . So you will be required to purchase a converter box to receive over the air programming from an external antenna.
if there is a label on the tv stating any of these words “Integrated Digital Tuner,” “Digital Tuner Built-In,” “Digital Receiver,” or “Digital Tuner,” “DTV,” “ATSC,” or “HDTV” then yes if they say “Digital Monitor” or “HDTV Monitor,” or as “Digital Ready” or “HDTV Ready" then no
All information I found indicated that this is an NTSC receiver and will require a converter box to receive the coming digital broadcast signals.
If you have cable or satellite, the drop-dead date is later and up to the provider.
