Your tv is a digital tv, so you do NOT need a converter box. The tv has a built in digital tuner. But if you have any other older tv's then what you need is a converter box to convert analog signals to digital. I know there is one in Best Buy (not sure if there is one in your location) but they have one called access digital tv converter. They are about $50 (CAN). You would still need your antenna or however you get your analog signals. The antenna needs to be plugged into your converter box and then the box would need to be connected to your tv.
This TV is analog, meaning there are no "straight digital" inputs, and the tuner itself is NTSC (analog), and not ATSC (digital). You will need a digital converter box to receive over-the-air (broadcast) digital television stations. This does NOT, however, preclude you from purchasing Digital Cable or Digital Satellite, and using the analog output on their converter boxes. The television will display high-definition images from those boxes and other sources.
I have the owner's manual in .pdf (adobe acrobat) format. Leave me your email address and I'll send it to you.
Good news, your TV has both Digital and analog tuners.
You will only need an antenna to recieve digital OTA (over the air) signals.
I have provided a link for information on antenna types and the channels you will be able to recieve.
Thank you for the oppurtunity to help and please rate this solution as a FixYa.
Hi, This tv has an NSTC tuner which is analog. If you subscribe to cable or satellite it will work just fine without you having to do anything for the upcoming change. However if you are using your own outside antenna or rabbit ears you will need a converter. Hope this helps.
To answer your direct question, yes it has a digital tuner. To answer your real question, NO it WILL NOT receive the new ATSC (digital) broadcast stations. The tuner itself is a digital one but works only for analog signals. The changeover in February will change the broadcast signals to a new digital format that will require a converter for your set to continue to function. Please note that the converter is only required if you receive your signal from rabbit ears or a rooftop antenna. If connected to cable or satelite, no change will be seen and no converter is needed.
Over air reception = need converter
Cable or satelite = no converter
most new tv's are digital capable...
but here is the trick the convertor box are only for those who don't have cable or satellite service if you use only an antenna to get channels then yes you will need a converter box for each tv that uses only the antenna to get channels if you have satellite or cable service then they don't need a converter box even if they have basic cable they won't need the box there channels are already digital converting now there are a few events that was in anlog but there are being converted as best as possible but you may notice the difference in the pictures betwwen analog (usaully old time movies or show even commercials) Digital (most everything now that are new stuff are digital and even in hd now)...
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.
