Digital converterboxes will down-convert all signals to 480p at best.  No converter box should be used with the satellite signal only antennas.

Is this tv hd ready?


Yes, it should be HD ready. There should be a small label on the front of the TV if so (provided it has not been removed). You will need a HD cable box, convertor or HD satellite box (Direct TV or Dish Network) to view HD broadcasts (even from free over-the-air HD broadcasts if you live within range of a local broadcasting station). I had the same, or very similar TV but upgraded to flat screen plasma set.

You do need a separate HD Receiver, HD Satellite, and or HD Cable Box to receive HD. It only has a Standard NTSC Tuner built in.
I hope this helps,

Is my Hitachi 61uwx10b ultravision hd ready digital tv ready when they switch over to digital vrodacasting or will i need a converter box,


This TV will need a converter box. It was made in the days before the digital tuner was required on big TV sets.

Just remember the converter is only needed if you get off-the-air reception with an antenna for local channels. If you have cable or satellite and get your local channels that way, you don't have to do anything. The change to digital will not affect you.

If you are now using rabbit ears or an old worn-out outside antenna, you might think about upgrading your antenna when you get a converter box. Signal strength is very important with the new digital broadcasting. Too weak a signal means no picture at all or one that freezes up or turns blocky. The antenna that worked for analog may not be adequate for digital.

Digital Channels??


Direct from the Hitachi website - "Integrated HDTV Tuners: Hitachi's new top-of-the-line XWX series features built-in ATSC terrestrial and cable HDTV tuners to provide integrated high resolution, high-definition signal decoding." You will need a seperate HDTV tuner if you do not have cable or satellite and want to watch off-air High Definition channels.

PROBLEM WITH GETTING LOCAL hd CHANNELS


You need to have a set top box.

By law, as of March 1, 2007, almost all televisions should include a built-in tuner (called HDTV, digital, or ATSC tuners) that can receive high-definition programs over the air by simply connecting an antenna. Your HDTV doesn't have such a tuner, you'll need to connect an external tuner (or cable or satellite box) to watch high-definition programming. External over-the-air HDTV tuners currently cost at least $150.

Satellite input


Most tv setups require that you change the input source to gain the ability to watch the proper peripheral e.g. if satellite is connected on video one and the dvd is connected to the tv on another input such as video 2.

If the satellite runs into the dvd unit and from there the dvd is connected to tv you may have to power off or on the dvd player to resolve conflict.

Another problem may be the resolution setting if your tv is Hi Def. Set the tv and receiver to the resolution e.g. 1080i.

You can also changed the way the satellite is connected to the tv possibly if you have other inputs.

Check the channel also, if the unit is connected with coax it would more than likely need to be on ch 3 or 4 if you are at the satellite receiver box location. If you are at a stand alone tv off of a dual tuner you may need to search the channels for the right source both air(analog) and cable(digital).
Hope this helps you out. If I can be of more assistance let me know.

DTV


The TV you have was made prior to the DTV standard, so it will not have that capability built in.

However there are two easy fixes.

1) If you have cable such as Comcast, they will automatically start providing the Digital signal conversion inside the cable box for you so you will be fine. I believe the satellite providers will also be offering this feature.
2) If you watch TV from an antenna, then you can purchase a set-top converter for like $40 and request a coupon from the government that covers most if not all of that cost. You will want to check on the coupon first, because I believe you need that when you purchase the converter.

Either way, you should be able to watch DTV just fine without buying a new TV or other similar big expense.

How to see local channels in HD with a traditional antenna?


If your set does not have an ATSC tuner, for HD, then you need to be using a suitably equipped STB.

Your satellite STB - box - should take in OTA channels and display them as part of its normal operation, tho. It takes in the antenna signal from your roof antenna and displays the HD version of your OTA channels, if it is an HD STB, along with the HD channels it gets from the satellite overhead.
