At the time your set was built, they classified sets as HD installed and HD ready.
HD Ready does not mean that it is HD compatible without the addition of an optional part which your set didn't have as standard.
The title only implies that it can be adapted to HD reception.
If you did not purchase it with the set, check your user guide to see what you need to make it whole.
You may have to seek this add-on on eBay since it is not guaranteed that Samsung will still offer it.



What you are lacking is the ATSC tuner and that can also be obtained in a separate converter box covered by the 'Coupon Program.'


If your model does not have an available tuner from Samsung any more, you can apply for the coupon here:

I bought a toshiba 36HF12 36" tv


The TV does need a converter box to receive digital off-the-air broadcasts. It's an HD set, but that doesn't mean digital; no digital tuner was built in. You can find the manual here at Toshiba. Hope this helps, and thanks for using Fixya!

Do I need an HDTV converter box


If you are picking up only analog channels, you will need a converter box. You can pick a converter box up for $49 or $59 dollars at walmart or target. Best Buy is way overcharging if they are selling them at $100.

About a converter box


You will need a converter box for both TVs just to get the HD channels but you might not see the HD resolution on this TVs.
Any TV that was manufactured before 2002 will require the converter box. A few of the high end TVs manufactured after 2002 might not require the converter.
Hope this helps.

Making Trinitron HD-compatible


Every one seems to have a problem understanding what real will happen in Feb 2009 First if you already watch TV from a cable provider you WILL NOT have a problem, Now if you have a set that picks up a signal over the air (rabbit ears or antenna) then you will be affected and will need a converter. Check www.dtvtransition.org for more details. And Finlay if you watch from a satalight receiver you will be fine
