It sounds to me as though your old HDTV has a HD tuner built in. Not all HDTVs do and unfortunately your LG does not (I looked it up).

If you want to get free over the air HD you will need to buy a HD digital tuner box and an HD antenna.

Good luck!

No,if this tv is an analog tv mean tv have a big back cover and have a heavy CRT-(tv tube).Must have a good antena like a digital antena or move antena around to left or right to pick up channel 11,might lost some other channels than.This tv now can't pick up digital signal now without the tv converter box if u want to pick up free DTV air broadcasting tv signal,it all broadcasting in DTV free air in all digital now.

Off air with SIR TS160


Hi druggist , I recently bought a Samsung SIR TS 160 unit from the Goodwill for $14.99 (no remote though) and I was very sceptical as to whether it would work but I thought what the hell it's only 15 bucks .Anyway to my surprise it works great and I do not and never have subscribed to Direct TV , I don't even have a satellite dish (am using an indoor antenae) and I get about 19 TV channels 10 of which are HDor DTV .Granted occasionally I have to move the antenae around a bit but not much . I also took my box to my friends house and he has a rooftop/outdoor antenae and there were no problems whatsoever .
I doubt Direct TV can deactivate your box in anyway ,especially for off-air programs.
Good Luck
Ted
ps my TV does not have a HD tuner either.
