The hd sat box is your converter and is compatible to your tv (1080i only). if you are asking about local braodcast (over the air) this set doesn't have an ATSC (digital) tuner so you would need a box for that. but your sat company may be giving you your local broadcast in HD.
so if you are presently using an aeral antenna for your locals yes you will need the box.
if your locals are already being supplied by your sat company no the sat box is your converter.
note: some sat boxes have ATSC tuners built in so your antenna can be used by the sat box as well.

HOW CAN I TELL IF MY TV IS 720 OR 1080 ALSO HOW CAN I TELL THE MEGA HERTZ


Go to the Magnavox site and look up your set, or do a search on the net for the model number.
I found a spec sheet at: http://www.annunci-qui.com/14/posts/16_Annunci_Audio_tv_foto/103_televisori_e_proiettori/461_MAGNAVOX_50ML8105D_50.html
This set will only work up to true 1080i. It will not work in true true 1080p which is the full HD mode. They don't say it clearly in the specs, but its 1080p mode is an up-converted mode. The cable or satellite box has to be able to handle 1080 modes. For normal viewing in HD this set should be visually very good. Only a Blue Ray DVD player and some other types of gadgets are able to put out a 1080p video signal.
Cable and satellite services are normally in 720i, some are in 720p, and a few specialty feeds are in 1080i. Most satellite and cable TV boxes cannot support anything above 720i.
The lamp life is 4000 hours. The lamp is fairly expensive to replace. I would seriously consider to upgrade to an LCD or Plasma display. The new generation of TV sets are far superior to the DLP types. Whatever type you choose, make sure it can work with true 1080p.
Go in to some of the show rooms and compare a projected type TV (if they still have them) to a true flat screen. All the projected type screens can never achieve the sharpness and aspect ratio accuracy of a flat screen set.

So you are telling me I need a digital converter for this TV to g


Who was not watching the months of public service announcements? You need a Digital-to-Analog (ATSC-to-NTSC) converter box to receive over-the-air (OTA) signals in most parts of the country. You do not need one for most cable and satellite box outputs--they are NTSC or HDMI. Some low-power, typically religious, stations are still analog. Note OTA may be high definition (HD) or standard resolution (SD) but will be digital.
To get HD on your HD set you must have OTA (HD TV tuner, not converter), cable (QAM TV receiver), satellite (HDMI or 5-wire RCA),or Blu-Ray with HDMI or RCA.

Is my Hitachi 61uwx10b ultravision hd ready digital tv ready when they switch over to digital vrodacasting or will i need a converter box,


This TV will need a converter box. It was made in the days before the digital tuner was required on big TV sets.

Just remember the converter is only needed if you get off-the-air reception with an antenna for local channels. If you have cable or satellite and get your local channels that way, you don't have to do anything. The change to digital will not affect you.

If you are now using rabbit ears or an old worn-out outside antenna, you might think about upgrading your antenna when you get a converter box. Signal strength is very important with the new digital broadcasting. Too weak a signal means no picture at all or one that freezes up or turns blocky. The antenna that worked for analog may not be adequate for digital.

Will set be campatable after June with the new high def?


Your set is HDTV-ready....

With an HDTV-ready set you’ll need an external digital tuner to watch HDTV programming.

However, if you have high-definition cable or satellite service you can watch those HDTV stations right now on your HDTV-ready set, no extra tuner needed.

which means you will still need a converter box if you use an antenna signal.

DTV


The TV you have was made prior to the DTV standard, so it will not have that capability built in.

However there are two easy fixes.

1) If you have cable such as Comcast, they will automatically start providing the Digital signal conversion inside the cable box for you so you will be fine. I believe the satellite providers will also be offering this feature.
2) If you watch TV from an antenna, then you can purchase a set-top converter for like $40 and request a coupon from the government that covers most if not all of that cost. You will want to check on the coupon first, because I believe you need that when you purchase the converter.

Either way, you should be able to watch DTV just fine without buying a new TV or other similar big expense.

Hd ready?


On any High Def TV, the reciever you need for this set, which does not have a HD receiver in it, is half the equation. Most HD channels have some HD content mixed with SD content on the same channel. SD content on HD signal from cable or satellite tends to be slightly blocky due to the native signal resolution and the resolution of HD (1080i/p or 720i/p).
