Re: Polaroid Model TLX01911C
This set is listed as having the ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee) tuner. This tuner provides reception of digital over-the-air (antenna/rabbit ears) signals and would therefore not need a converter box fir that use.
If you are trying to receive un-encrypted digital signals from cable, the ATSC tuner does no good. The set would then require a QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) tuner. I am not sure if this set has a QAM tuner or not. Even if it did not, your cable provider must provide a way for you to receive their signal and should make their converter box available to you.

with comcast you shouldn't need a converter box- unless it's an older comcast system. call comcast and request a digital ready system box. we have comcast and have had no problems with the digital switch-over. didn't need a converter box. give 'em hell! good luck!
Im thinking no. but there is a way you can be sure. look under your menu settings. if under the input settings you see anything about dtv or hdtv you should be ok. the simplest solution is to do a channel search. if you only come up with whole number channels ie, 3, 12, 16. you will need a converter box. if you get channels such as 3.1 12.1 or so on then you will be ok. if you need a converter box. no worries about the price. the government has cupons avalible to offset the price by nearly 80%. simply go to google or ask and type in converter box cupons. the box its self is a breeze to set up. simply plug it into the wall. plug yout anttena wire into the plug on the converter box marked anttena. then take the cord supplied and plug it into the other male connector and into your tv. turn both on and tune your tv to channel 3 or 4. everything should come up. the remote also has a set of tv controls on it.
If connected to cable or satellite your tv will work after digital conversion occurs. If using an antenna, look up a local TV station to see if they're already broadcasting in digital. Most are. Enter that DIGITAL channel # using your remote. If you get a picture, you don't need a converter box.
