If you don't use an outdoor antenna then no, you don't need a converter box.

However some channels have to go through a rented digital cable box from your provider for some channels to be recieved.

Digital?


No sorry to dissapoint DS is short for Definition STANDARD ... and is a cheap 20 inch model assigned to category 2 of televisions. To improve its reception you could apply a Digital setop box to it to get all the additional channels seen on a Digital. Probably last longer than most new plasmas and LCD's as this is quite a robust little TV.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Hook up analog vcr to hd tv


You must have a converter box for the tv and for the vcr. Set the vcr to receive chanel 3 and set the converter box to the digital chanel you want to record. Put a splitter on the antenae out and route one to the tv converter box and one to the vcr converter box. GOOD TO GO.

Converter boxs


If you have cable or satelite service, no converter is needed for either one. The only time a converter is required is if you receive the TV signal from an antenna (over-air). The DS19130 WILL require a converter for over-air broadcasts. I think that the DS25530 will as well, but I am not 100% sure. Because of its age, I would suspect that a converter will be required for hte DS25530.

Trouble receiving local channels on TV using new Magnavox converter box


Your digital converter box probably does not have an analog pass through that allows the old analog channels to go through to the tv's analog tuner.

IS MY TV DIGITAL READY


Its tuner is NTSC, which will not tune in digital stations. I didn't see a DTV tuner mentioned anywhere on the specs, so don't think it will work. I myself have one and will soon purchase a converter box with the $40 rebate from the government.

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
