6 year old tv probably not digital ready. The converter box will work if tv is on channel 3 and you use a UHF antenna. Most converter box connections have 75 ohm connectors, your tv may have the round connector to accept the input signal. If you have screw on terminals on the tv you will have to go to Home Depot or Lowes and get a matching transformer to go between the tv and the converter box. UHF antenna can be made out of a coat hanger. Just make a circle clean the paint off ends and attach. Or just buy a digital booster antenna at WalMart.
if there is a label on the tv stating any of these words “Integrated Digital Tuner,” “Digital Tuner Built-In,” “Digital Receiver,” or “Digital Tuner,” “DTV,” “ATSC,” or “HDTV” then yes if they say “Digital Monitor” or “HDTV Monitor,” or as “Digital Ready” or “HDTV Ready" then no
I could not find a "RCA model #27F350T", but there is a RCA model 27F530T, and according to the users manual for that TV, it is not Digital ready. You will need a converter box if you wish to continue receiving antenna based broadcasts. Your users manual can be found at the following link. http://tv.rca.com/RCATV/Assets/pdfs/27F530T_1620181B_IB_e-04.pdf
If the TV was manufactured in 1993, it is NOT ready for the digital switch. If you have cable or satellite, you don't need to do anything because the cable or satellite box will do the swith for you. If you are using an outside antenna (rabbit ears) you will need to get a converter box. Hope this answers your question
