Hi duce1500,

Unfortunately, the 36A50 is not HDTV-ready. That means you will need a converter box. Here is a link to the model's specs, which includes this information:

http://www.amazon.com/Toshiba-36A50-36-TV/dp/tech-data/B00004YMBV/ref=de_a_smtd

I should mention, however, that if it's connected to cable (or certain satellite services), you won't need a converter to watch the TV - you'll receive the digital signal (although you won't have the 1080-pixel HD resolution - the 36A50 only has 850 lines of resolution).

I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Is this tv set up for the digital switch in Feb.


If the TV was manufactured in 1993, it is NOT ready for the digital switch. If you have cable or satellite, you don't need to do anything because the cable or satellite box will do the swith for you. If you are using an outside antenna (rabbit ears) you will need to get a converter box. Hope this answers your question

DIGITAL READY?


Usually most newer high end sets are digital ready, after looking in the manual I could not find any mention of it being digital ready therefore I would have to say no and you will need a converter box, you can still get $40 off on up to converter boxs through the Govt. here is a link for that. You have to request your coupons by Dec 31st. I requested them and got them in a matter of weeks.

Hope this helps

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.
