In our new digital world ... can a Durabrand model DU1901A function without a converter box?


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.

Good luck to you, and have a good day.

Will I need a convertor box for Model TVM1916F


I'm sorry, but the TVM1916F is not digital. You will need a converter box if you have an antenna for your signals.

Durabrand tv, model BH2404D. Would like to know if digital ready


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.

My ge tv digital ready?


Your TV is NOT digital ready. IF you do not have cable or satellite, you will need a converter box. If you do have cable or satellite you have nothing to do or worry about as the cable or satellite box will automatically do the conversion for you. Hope this helps

Salutation TrudyK,

Great question! First think to know is that if you are getting your programing from a cable or satellite provider a digital converter box would not be needed. These services are not being required to change their signals. If you use rabbit ears or an antenna a digital converter maybe required.

Looking at the specifications of your televisions they all appear to have analog tuners which would need digital converters to receive the new digital broadcasts.

Thankfully the FCC does have a program in place to offer coupons to assist in purchasing the new converter boxes.

For more information on the digital transition and coupon programs BestBuy.com has a FAQS, wuizzes and tutorials available at http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?id=pcmcat120600050013&type=category

if it was purchased back in 2003 chances are that it is not digital TV ready and you would need to purchase a converter box.
