This model tv supports digital signals so you do not need a converter box, just a digital reciever will do

This is a tube television set, so yes, you will need a digital converter if you are using rabbit ears.

Sanyo DS20424 would require converter box after digital change over because this TV has no digital tuner inside.

Hi,

Yes you will need it.A DTV converter box is an easy-to-install electronic device that hooks up to your analog television set and over-the-air antenna. The box converts the digital television signal into an analog format, making it viewable on your analog TV set.

Any TV manufactured before 2002 might need the converter box to get the digital channels.
What is the model number of your TV?

    Check this website for more info about the analog to digital transition.

  • Jaime Hernandez Dec 13, 2008

    If you are receiving OTA channels, you will need to have the converter box but if you have a cable TV converter or satellite receiver then you do not need the converter as the channels will come to the cable or satellite receiver and from there to your TV.

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.

How to install a converter box on the tv


First Converter boxes are a poor economic investment.
Second you have an HDTV. It does not need a Converter box.
Just connect an amplified antenna.

Specs:

Built-in ATSC QAM Tuners - QAM and ATSC tuners included to enable the set to receive Digital cable-in-the-clear signals, as well as digital terrestrial broadcasts. HDTV reception is possible by adding an Optional HDTV antenna

This TV is analog, meaning there are no "straight digital" inputs, and the tuner itself is NTSC (analog), and not ATSC (digital). You will need a digital converter box to receive over-the-air (broadcast) digital television stations. This does NOT, however, preclude you from purchasing Digital Cable or Digital Satellite, and using the analog output on their converter boxes. The television will display high-definition images from those boxes and other sources.

I have the owner's manual in .pdf (adobe acrobat) format. Leave me your email address and I'll send it to you.

Thanks,

Need help locating a box to make my TV receive true HDTV


You Dont need one your set is HD. So when the switch happens you are good to go. The only TVs that are going to need converter boxes is those who do not have HD or only have antenna.

You should be fine. Direct TV advertises that they are already broadcasting in full digital. So your box or DVR will act as that converter.
