Do I need to buy a digital converter box?

I own a Hitachi Projection TV (i think it about a 50" wide screen) model number 51F59A. It says Dolby Digital and HDTV on the front, but I need to know if I will still have to buy a digital tuner to be able to watch after the switch from analog to digital in February. Can anybody tell me and is there a way to test it ahead of time. I do not get cable or satellite and have always just been an occasional watcher who got by with rabbit ears.

Television Stations have been testing their channels so that people can see if they are going to have any problem when they do make the change. These testing times are usually during the local evening news times, 5:00 p.m.& 6:00 p.m. If all you have been using is rabbit ears, that tells me just because it says Digital on the front doesn't mean it will work when the change happens. You will have to get one of the converters that you can get a coupon for most of the cost or subscribe to cable or satellite. Personally I'd go with cable. The cost is not much for basic which is what you've been watching and you would have your TV during high winds and storms, Sorry, I did say personally that is what I would do.
Have a great day and get a coupon, if you want for the converter!!! Let me know what you thought of my idea. I tried to add a little humor about the cable. Ha! Ha! Enjoy the governments new decision on what type of TV we can watch now!

If it says its TV for television then you dont need to, unless youve tried it already and ended with no result. just read the manual

I have owned this model for 4 years now. 2 years ago this same thing happened to me. I think the repair man said the transformer went out and he replaced that. It has happened to me again so I will try and do this myself, and let you know if I succeed. This TV has been terrible, I will never buy hitachi again. If you ever use an hdmi cable the tv does very weird things like changes color or distorts for about 30 secs then goes back to normal. P.O.S.
