SOURCE: Need help locating a box to make my TV receive true HDTV

You Dont need one your set is HD. So when the switch happens you are good to go. The only TVs that are going to need converter boxes is those who do not have HD or only have antenna.

Your Hitachi 43FDX01B is HD-Ready, which means it has high definition capability, but it needs an HDTV Tuner added to it. DTV converters can only give you Standard Definition resolution. You can browse HDTV Tuners Now for the different types of HDTV Tuner that are available.

This TV will need a converter box. It was made in the days before the digital tuner was required on big TV sets.

Just remember the converter is only needed if you get off-the-air reception with an antenna for local channels. If you have cable or satellite and get your local channels that way, you don't have to do anything. The change to digital will not affect you.

If you are now using rabbit ears or an old worn-out outside antenna, you might think about upgrading your antenna when you get a converter box. Signal strength is very important with the new digital broadcasting. Too weak a signal means no picture at all or one that freezes up or turns blocky. The antenna that worked for analog may not be adequate for digital.

You'll probably get 480p if you use a cable box using the RGB outputs from that and plugging them into your RGB component input on the jack panel . You won't get 720p on that set, but you'll wind up with a clearer picture than regular RF. So, your answer is no, you won't won't get it without a box if your using an air signal.

I would like to know if the Hitachi 51UWX20B television can be connected to the internet.


Your Hitachi 51UWX20B is an HDTV-Ready TV. No Digital Tuner. HDTV-Ready means that your TV set is capable of displaying analog and high-definition digital pictures, but without a digital tuner, it cannot receive the digital signal. An HDTV-Ready requires an external high-definition TV receiver (digital tuner) in order to receive HDTV signals. These external receivers can be called an HDTV Tuner, set-top-box, decoder or DTV Converter Box . So you will be required to purchase a converter box to receive over the air programming from an external antenna.

Sound went out, all I get is white noise that you cannot mute. Happened when I changed from high def to regular channel. Even with everything unhooked still just white noise.


Analog regular channel TV was turned off mid 2009. You need a digital channel convertor box to receive the new digital channels... The analog ones went bye, bye in the USA. Without the box you will just get noise.

Convertor box and Sony Wega with PIP (2 Tuners) and new Digital DVR/VCR


I wonder if the RF interference from the digital tuner. That box will only allow ouput either through the coax or the AV ports. If you do both you will not get a picture.

If you switch them you have to tell the box what your using for output by going through the setup process.

Ilo DVD player/recorder


> jfthr - Tv convertor boxes transfer digital signals into ANALOG. So when it goes to the dvd recorder it IS ANALOG. I have my antenna hooked to my convertor box, the converter hooked up to the ILO (A/V connections) then, the output on the ILO to the input of my analog tv. (Video selection on my tv). It works great to watch tv and/or record. I switch to the "DVD SOURCE" to watch dvds. Maybe you have the conv box hooked to the tv then the outs on the tv to the dvd. That would explain why you can get a picture but not watch dvd? The ILO has to go between the box and the tv in order to watch dvd.

Do I have an analog or digital TV ?


You have an ANALOG set. After 2/17/09, you will need to be connected to cable, satellite or get a convertor box to watch this set.
