Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions
What is necessary to make my "HDTV capable" 2 year old set recieve true digital signals? Are the converter boxes available now capable of recieving and transferring the proper signal or are they just as the name implies 'Converters" which change the digital siganl to analog and supply it to the set? At the time of purchase I was assured that this particular unit would function with only the addition of a digital tuner box once the switch was completed. Did I get suckered?
Samsung DynaFlat HD HDTV 1080i
Model ~ TX3271HFX / XAA
I just purchased a Magnovox converter at Wal-Mart with the coupon I ordered from the government program. Our TV is about 2 years old too and not HD. It has worked great. The reception and color is truly the best we've had in years. We live in the country about 50 miles from all the local stations and were told we would need a new antenna, so far the only channel we have problems with is the PBS. Not sure if it is antenna related or their signal strength. We don't have the problem until the sun comes up good. It has been great to get the additional channels that some stations have added. Hope this helps.
