Re: Digital

If you have Direct TV you will not need a converter box. However that does not mean that Direct TV will provide all of the digital channels that are available in your area. If you want to receive all of the digital channels you may need to purchase a converter box and switch between Direct TV's box and the converter box.

For example, in many cities stations may have 3 or 4 digital channels running but Direct TV is only offering the main channel. In order to watch the alternate channels you would need to unplug the Direct TV box from your TV and plug in a digital converter box.

If you sign up for the $40 coupon currently offered by the Federal government, you can get a converter box for next to nothing. Prices of the basic converter boxes range from about $40 to $90.

Re: Digital

Nope. Not a digital Television. I'm guessing it's an older one. Most TV's sold nowdays are Digital TV ready.

Is the tv that I have bought about 6 years ago ready for DTV?

6 year old tv probably not digital ready. The converter box will work if tv is on channel 3 and you use a UHF antenna. Most converter box connections have 75 ohm connectors, your tv may have the round connector to accept the input signal. If you have screw on terminals on the tv you will have to go to Home Depot or Lowes and get a matching transformer to go between the tv and the converter box. UHF antenna can be made out of a coat hanger. Just make a circle clean the paint off ends and attach. Or just buy a digital booster antenna at WalMart.

Does my tv have a digital tuner (RCA Model E13320, 2/2001)?

The digital tuner has nothing to do with the new signal you will be receiving in February of next year. The new video signal is a digital signal. The old video signal is analog. Your television receives the analog signal and converts it to what you see on television. You need a converter box to convert the new digital signal back to an analog signal your television can convert.

Receive one channel with Coverter Box

Make sure those 6 channels are also being broadcast in Digital format also, otherwise your converter box won't have a digital signal to convert for your TV. The switchover date is early next year I believe.

Digital Transition

If this a digital ready TV, you won't need a converter box at all.
If not, the converter box is designed to work with all TV's.

Panasonic TV -7 to 10 years old (I do not have the manuel to this t.v.)- 19

That year of TV will most likely not have a digital tuner. You can still use the TV with a digital converter box as long as you are getting your reception over the air with an antenna.

Salutation TrudyK,

Great question! First think to know is that if you are getting your programing from a cable or satellite provider a digital converter box would not be needed. These services are not being required to change their signals. If you use rabbit ears or an antenna a digital converter maybe required.

Looking at the specifications of your televisions they all appear to have analog tuners which would need digital converters to receive the new digital broadcasts.

Thankfully the FCC does have a program in place to offer coupons to assist in purchasing the new converter boxes.

For more information on the digital transition and coupon programs has a FAQS, wuizzes and tutorials available at

Digital signal conversion

If you have cable TV, satellite TV, or FIOS, the coupon eligible converter boxes aren't needed and aren't useful with those services.
They gov't coupon converter boxes are only good for reception with a regular TV antenna or rabbit ears.

According to the specs on, no, this TV does not have a digital tuner. So, if you use a rooftop TV antenna (not satellite dish) or an indoor TV antenna, you WILL need an ATSC to NTSC converter box. You need not wait until next year, however, as most U.S. TV stations are also broadcasting digital (ATSC) now.
