    Thanks but I don't belive that is true. From my understanding if the TV has a digital tuner you don't need the convertor box and can still pick up the signal on rabbit ears. The issue is if the TV has an analog tuner then you need the convertor box. I guess my real question is if anyone knows an online source where I can determine if this particular TV has a digital tuner. I tried searching for the user manual but had no success.

If your grandmother has cable or satelite tv she already has a digital signal however if she justs gets her locals she will need a converter box. the goverment is giving free coupons for this or she can go to walmart and purchase a directv converter box for about $50 she will not have directv but the box will convert her signal.. the tv has nothing to do with the signal. she will not need a new tv.

    Im sorry you feel that the information i gave you was incorrect. However,I have actually been answering that question for over a year now. I have been professionally trained for the digital transition by the company i work for. The information i gave you was correct. Here is a website that can answer the question you had about the set and built in tuner as well as any other questions you may have. and if your grandmother does need the converter box there is a link on the home page for the coupon program to get it free.I hope this was helpful to you. www.dtv.gov/

My tv won't pick up all channels since going digital. says signal is 62 percent. we have an arial extension could this be the problem.


If you live in the United States it is a problem since going digital. Analog signals are not broadcast anymore and your antenna is designed for analog signal, not digital. Now that the DTV Transition is completed, analog TV sets need additional equipment -– a digital-to-analog converter box –- to receive over-the-air television. Analog sets equipped with a converter box will display the digital broadcasts, but not in full digital quality. The box can be purchased almost everywhere. I hope this helps and good luck!

How can i tell if my advent tv manufactured in 2003 model #q2035a is hdtv ready or if i need to purchase a digital converter box?


The first question to ask is how do you get your tv signal. If you have either cable, or satellite TV then you don't need a converter box, as those companies do the conversion for you.

If you have an antenna, you will need a converter box if yout TV is an older model which is analog and not digital. If your tv is a 2003, it is analog.

I have a sony trinitron wega tv model number KV-32FS120 and I was wondering if it is digital ready or do I need to get a converter box


This television receiver has only an analog broadcast tuner and will require a converter box after February 17, 2009, to receive over-the-air broadcasts with an antenna because of the U.S.'s transition to digital broadcasting. Analog-only TVs should continue to work as before with cable and satellite TV services, gaming consoles, VCRs, DVD players, and similar products.

Digital ready?


Sanyo's customer service responded that this TV is not digital. If it's connected to an antenna, you will need to purchase a Digital to Analog converter box.

Tuner


Afraid this set does not have a on-board digital tuner, But do you have this set hooked to cable or a antenna? If you are hooked to cable you will not have a problem, If you only have it hooked to a antenna then you might want to go to www.dtvtransition.org and check out some options for getting a converter box
