I'm sorry but the 36FX49B is not digital. If you use an antenna you will need a converter box.

I have a 61" hitachi projection tv model 54379 from sears do i need a converter box and what kind

You will need a standard definition converter box for that set for OTA

Or if you have cable, the box will have the appropriate video and audio outputs for the set.

I have a 57f500 and i am trying to figure out where to get a converter for hdtv and how to set it up. anyone able to help? Thanks!

This model appears to only have a DVI for HD with a connection on the rear for a set top HD box---going to need an adapter go Component out from the box's HD output.

see page nine for connections and the owner manual is free to look or download.

Tv screen jumps, and turns off and on.

The problem you are describing is a vertical deflection problem, may just be bad solder joints around ic, re-solder points or replacement of ic required and caps.

Digital tuner or not?

Yes in July I do not recall the date you will need the digital tuner for this TV, A rule of thumb look at the manufacture date on the back of the set if its earlier then 2007 you need a digital converter. There are two types of digital QAM signals one is called TRUE QAM and the other is STANDARD QAM the old standard was foe things like DVD's and the like and not OTA "over the air" I hope thisdoes help but you do got a good TV there but if you buy a converter you be gald you did!!!

Please do not shoot the messanger and rate a good rateing as we do not get PAID to answer these free questions :)

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

Yes, you will need a converter box if you are currently getting TV off-the-air with a rooftop or indoor antenna. This TV does not have a digital tuner. You don't need a box if this set is being used on a cable or satellite system (unless your service provider tells you otherwise).

Is my tv digital already or do I need a converter?

Your TV does have a digital tuner in it already. Also a converter box is only needed if you use an Antenna to recieve TV. So if you have Cable or Satillite, you will not need a box at all.

Vertical problem

Joel, you may be a knowledgeable do-it-yourselfer, but do you know solid stae Electronics servicing. From the description of your problem, it looks like the Vertcal oscillator / output IC has failed. If you knoe S S Electronics, replace.
