Question about RCA P52939 52" Rear Projection Television
Does the P52939 require any new parts to deal with HD only "over-the- air" signals? Is it analog only now? (Doesn't Analog signal cease in less than a month?)
You will need a digital converter to receive the HD and SD programming. The box will convert the digital reception to analog so you will not be receiving an HD picture, however what you do receive is often sharper than your previous picture. You also should not need a new antenna. Set up your converter box and test with your existing antenna. Depending on you proximity to transmitters you probably won't need to upgrade your antenna.
Be aware that if you purchase a digital box that does not have "RF pass through" you will not be able to receive any analog signals. All high power transmitters must be converted at midnight on FEBRUARY 17 2009 (not 2008). However, low power stations (often small independents with a very small broadcast range) and translators (transmitters in rural area that relay signals from larger stations) are not required to convert to digital on that date. There is, as yet, no set timeframe for the conversion of LPT and translators.
