Is this television have an analog or digital tuner? I tried looking at the manual, and also looking at the Sharp site, and I am not able to determine if this set is ready for the digital transition. Thanks, V. McClellan

Unfortunately, the Sharp Aquos LC-37G4U TV is an HDTV-ready monitor. It does not have an ATSC (digital OTA) tuner. The A/V Center box (TU-GA1U-S) that came with the TV has two NTSC tuners. You'll need the over-the-air ATSC to NTSC (analog) converter box or a stand-alone ATSC tuner DVR set-top box to get most OTA channels. There are only low power NTSC tuners that continue to broadcast; you will only receive those stations if you are close to their transmitters.
Yes you need a digital converter box. Your model has an NTSC Analog Tuner. It doesn't have a Digital Tuner. This is why you need the converter box.
For example, many companies like Comcast or Time Warner or TCI etc used to broadcast Analog Signals through their wires. Now they have broadcasted only Digital Signals. This makes either your TV Obsolete as a Tuner or you have to get a digital converter so your Analog TV can receive the signal.
Depending on your service, it may be worth your while to get a TV with a digital Tuner.
Then again, it also depends on if you are connecting a box receiver to your TV. For example, if you have Directv or Dish, you would then use your standard Video/Audio or Composite Cables to transmit your signal OR your Out to TV Coaxial whichever works for your receiver. Some receivers have already built in converters . You should really consider all the factors to decide and determine it based on the type of service you have or want.
No,all regular tube tvs are analog tv.Must have a converter box hook up to get a free over the air DTV,or must have pay tv services like Cables,Satalite,or Telicoms signals they convert DTV back to analog signal for ur tube tv.
In most cases the vertical output IC and possibly a fusible resistor off of the high voltage transformer are bad. The vertical output IC is located on a heat sink and usually right next to the vertical yoke winding connectors that are green and yellow in most sets.
