A VERY short search on Google (first hit when using "DFTV270A digital") shows this:
Amazon.com: SANSUI DFTV270 27" Flat Digital TV with ATSC/QAM Tuner ...The DFTV270 receives digital terrestrial and cable signals without the need for an additional tuner.

People should at least make a minimal effort in looking up answers for themselves. An equivalent questions is asking if a FlexFuel can use E85 gas.

2005 Conversion Van has TV What do I need to do to receive Signal


If the audiovox does not have digital capability you will need a converter. The converter "converts" the digital signal back to the old signal so that your tv will recognize and play it. Thanks for using fixya.

I have a Hitachi 32CX38B, does it have a digital tuner?


To answer your direct question, yes it has a digital tuner. To answer your real question, NO it WILL NOT receive the new ATSC (digital) broadcast stations. The tuner itself is a digital one but works only for analog signals. The changeover in February will change the broadcast signals to a new digital format that will require a converter for your set to continue to function. Please note that the converter is only required if you receive your signal from rabbit ears or a rooftop antenna. If connected to cable or satelite, no change will be seen and no converter is needed.

To simplify:

Over air reception = need converter
Cable or satelite = no converter

Does my tv have a digital tuner (RCA Model E13320, 2/2001)?


The digital tuner has nothing to do with the new signal you will be receiving in February of next year. The new video signal is a digital signal. The old video signal is analog. Your television receives the analog signal and converts it to what you see on television. You need a converter box to convert the new digital signal back to an analog signal your television can convert.

Digital


From what I see under amazon.com, it does not have a digital tuner.

But the February 2009 turn off is a deadline for over the air only.
When cable companies turn off their analog signals is a different matter. Some may soon, some may wait until 2012.

The gov't coupon program is only good for converters that handle the over the air digital ATSC signals, not cable's unencrypted digital QAM signals.
