Yes; your set was built only with an NTSC tuner that will be obsolete in the near future. I have surveyed as well as possible and procured Zinwell ZAT-970 converters for our back-up sets.  (The new pretty ones will break fairly soon according to what I find here - keep your old set dry if you buy a new flat panel - you'll need it again.) 

If you have no manual for your set, you can download one here:

SOURCE: Don't understand about digital and analog

Hi, The TV has an analog tuner only and so is not DTV ready. You will require a seperate set top box to receive digital programs with it. If you have brought the set recently it should have had an appropriate warning label on it. If not ,you may have some come back with the store which sold it.(depends on the country where purchased)

Is this TV digital ready


According to http://www.dtv.gov/consumercorner.html#faq9

How can I be sure that I am buying a digital TV (DTV)?
By law, beginning March 1, 2007, all television reception devices (including TVs, VCRs, DVRs, etc.) imported into the U.S. or shipped in interstate commerce must contain a digital tuner. Retailers may continue to sell analog-only devices from existing inventory, but must prominently display on or near the analog-only device a Consumer Alert label with this advisory:

What is the difference between “Integrated” DTVs and DTV or HDTV “Monitors”?
An Integrated DTV set is a television with a built-in digital tuner (also referred to as “a DTV”). A digital tuner is also sometimes called a DTV decoder or DTV receiver. If you have an Integrated DTV, you will not need any additional equipment, with the exception of a broadcast antenna (either a rooftop antenna or “rabbit ears” connected to the set), to receive over-the-air digital broadcast programming. Integrated DTVs can also receive and display analog broadcast programming, so you can continue watching analog broadcasts.
In contrast, a DTV Monitor is not capable of receiving digital broadcast programming without additional equipment; it is simply a display device without the processing capability for DTV reception. A digital or HD set-top box must be connected between the antenna and the monitor to receive and display over-the-air digital or HD programming.
If you have a digital or HD “Monitor” and would like to purchase a digital or HD set-top box to view over-the-air programming, confirm with your retailer that the set-top box is compatible with your Monitor.

Cannot get DTV Converter Box to work on my Durabrand DWT 1905 19"


The converter must have an "analog pass-through" feature to view existing stations until the changeover. Not all of the 'approved' boxes had the feature and you didn't include the model number so we could check for you.
If you were dependent on an outdoor antenna, you will still need it for the (any) converter box.

I don't understand digital and analog


The DTV1907 is digital, but it must be programmed. If you need help with this call the customer service number on the set.

Durabrand tv, model BH2404D. Would like to know if digital ready


All information I found indicated that this is an NTSC receiver and will require a converter box to receive the coming digital broadcast signals. If you have cable or satellite, the drop-dead date is later and up to the provider.

Are you wondering if this Durabrand TV is going to be ok in 2009 when Television goes all Digital?

This will not affect cable TV users only people trying to recieve TV over the AIR UHF/VHF will be digital signals now and will require a special tuner to recieve them.

Most durabrands have Analog/Digital tuners but they are analog TV's.
