Question about Hitachi 57G500 57" TV
I have a Hitachi 57G500A model television, and it's my understanding that this TV has a digital tuner; therefore, no converter box is necessary when stations go all digital. Is this correct?
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.
Over air reception = need converter
Cable or satelite = no converter
