As long as you have satalite or cable TV, you will not need a converter box for digital TV, however, if you use an antenna, you will need a box.

Will this TV work after February '09?


The manual can be found here: http://www.replacementremotes.com/store/downloadpdf.cfm?productid=35830

As for the DTV issue, your television will require the converter box. You can get a coupon to reduce it's cost from the United States Government Webpage and print it off.

Digital TV??


Your set does not have the correct tuner in it. However, the broadcast change only effects those that use an external antenna for reception. If you are using cable, satelite or any other service for TV, you do not need the converter.

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
