Question about Audiovox JE2043 20 in. EDTV-Ready LCD Television
You'll need one of the new converter boxes and possibly a new antenna. The US Gov't has been issuing $40 coupons toward the purchase of basic converter boxes, and some places have set prices so that you basically get them free. You can get up to 2 coupons from www.dtv2009.gov.
Once you have the converter box, you leave your TV on channel 3 (or 4, depending on how you set it) and do your channel changing with the box.
With the new digital broadcasts, signal strength is more important than with analog. You might need to upgrade your antenna if all you have is a small pair of rabbit-ears. The only way to know for sure is to see what channels the box finds with your current antenna. There are a bunch of different indoor antennas to choose from if you need one, and outside antennas as well if you really need the pull.
The downside to all this is that you may wind up with fewer channels to watch, depending on your area. If you were able to get a fuzzy but watchable picture on analog, the station may not be strong enough for digital. You don't know 'til you try it. The picture quality of the DTV signal is much better, though.
Hope this is helpful...please feel free to rate my answer as you see fit.
