Question about Televison & Video
Does this TV have a built in digital tuner or do I need a converter box after the DTV transition? It is not hooked up to cable.
Is this an Analog TV? Does it have a picture tube and not an LCD or plasma screen? Most likely this is a Analog TV.
If it is an Analog TV (and I would bet that it is), then no, it does not have a digital (QAM) tuner to pick up DTV broadcasts. The fact that it has a VCR also indicates that its an Analog TV.
If you are picking up your TV signals from an outside antenna and not cable, then yes, you will need a converter box to convert the new digital signals to Analog so that you can continue to use your TV set.
If you are using cable to receive your channels, the cable company already provides the conversion for you and your TV will continue to work as before.
The government is giving out coupons to help consumers defray the costs of purchaing a converter box. The following sites are good places to obtain more information.
