Is the Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36FV27 36" TV a digital TV

As of February 2009 we are switching over to digital signals, is this tv capable of receiving a digital signal? or Will I need to purchase a D-to-A converter box? I really do not want to purchase a new tv as we don't purchase cable tv, I use rabbit ears for the local channels and watch a lot of DVD movies.

Thank You.

I have a Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-27FS100 TV

You will need the converter if you are dependent on broadcast reception; in other words, use an antenna with your set. Cable and satellite sources may or may not 'go digital' at some point in time so if you are using one of these, check with your cable or satellite company. 
If you decide to buy one of the pretty, new flat panel sets, buy the converter and DON'T toss your Sony. Store them in a dry place as backups. The flat panel sets are crapping out all over so you might do without TV when it fails.

Digital tuner?

Good question, Mike. I wondered about my fs210 model, too, and I found the answer at a Sony tech-support site.

1. Go to:
2. Enter your TV's model number, which, in this case, is: kv-32fs100 (and then click on Continue).
3. At the resulting page, under "Support by Type" in the left margin, click on "News & Alerts."
4. At the next page, click on: 04/02/2008: Critical: Is my Sony® television ready for the Digital TV (DTV) transition?
5. Your TV and mine are analog, but scroll down the page mentioned in #4, above, to see all of your options.

Consumers can determine whether any Sony TV is digital, just by entering the model number and following the steps listed above. ~ Kind regards, Gilda M. (replied 1/23/09)

Yes, you will need the converter box in order to view the digital channels if you are receiving off the air signals but if you have cable or satellite TV, you might not needed. You can click here to know the specs of your TV, it has an analog tuner and not a digital.

You may want to try disconnecting the power for about 30 seconds and rechecking the TV. Otherwise, it may not be worthwhile repairing.
