Do I need an HDTV converter box

Hi, I just bought an Insignia plasma tv. I currently have Direct TV. I was told by the employee at Best Buy that I also need an HDTV converter box, which Best Buy sells for $100. Did the employee give me the correct info? Is there another way to hook up my TV without having to buy the 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.

Does my curtis mathes tronics tv model CM19011 made in June 2000 have a digital tuner as needed to currently view tv over the airwaves?


No,all CRT tube tvs don't have digital tuner inside.They're analog tvs.Must buy the converter box,and hook it up to get the free DTV airwave signal.Trust me,i help an elderly person hook up this exact this tv model with a converter box.Try buy the RCA model converter box,it matches with this tv model very well.

Purchased an Insignia TV mod. NS-F24TV about a yr ago,


Actually, this TV has an analog and a digital tuner. I just bought one at a yard sale and it picks up all of the digital channels that I got before with my set top box.

Digital converter box hook up


Can you describe how the DVD and VCR were connected prior to the converter box when they were working? I need to know that in order to guide you properly.

Thanks,

Sanyo DS31590 and converter box


I just checked the owners manual online. Looks like this model only has an NTSC analog tuner. No ATSC digital tuner built in.

If you use cable or satellite TV services, the digital converters won't help you. The coupon-eligible ones are strictly for use with a traditional antenna. If this is your situation, ignore the remainder of this message.

If you use a regular TV antenna with this TV, then, yes, you will need a converter box. FYI, the Insignia model at Best Buy and the Zenith at Circuit City, and elsewhere (radio shack) have gotten good reviews from early purchasers. More converter box models will be available in a few months time.

If your current reception with your antenna is poor (snowy), you may have problems receiving the new DTV signals. If not, you should be pleasantly surprised with the quality of the DTV signals - and the extra "virtual" channels. Try the converter box using the RCA video and audio inputs, for a slightly better picture than with the coaxial cable inputs.

Good Luck

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

Nope. Not a digital Television. I'm guessing it's an older one. Most TV's sold nowdays are Digital TV ready.

Insignia IS-TV040919 color problem


The tv has been dropped or banged around, you can try to get a degaussing coil and fix the colors, if you cant pull them back out than it would need a CRT/Picture tube...in other words the tv would not be worth anything.
