Hello there jimmysac77,

I've spent some time trying to find some information on your television, but am hitting a brick wall. I can only assume from this that your television is an older model, as a general rule of thumb if your television was purchase before 1998 it should have an analog only tuner.

If this is the case a digital converter box may be needed, if you get your TV signal from cable television or a satellite services they will automatically convert the signal for you so a box would not be required.

If you have more questions on the digital conversion BestBuy.com has links and FAQ's on the subject at:

How can i tell if my advent tv manufactured in 2003 model #q2035a is hdtv ready or if i need to purchase a digital converter box?


The first question to ask is how do you get your tv signal. If you have either cable, or satellite TV then you don't need a converter box, as those companies do the conversion for you.

If you have an antenna, you will need a converter box if yout TV is an older model which is analog and not digital. If your tv is a 2003, it is analog.

Hi! Simple question; answer hard to find. Does a Sylvania 6520FDF (20" color TV/DVD, purchased new in late 2006 or early 2007) need a digital converter box? Thanks for any assistance. Bruce


BRUCETYRE::
unless the information that comes with the tv says it is digital ready, NO!! and you will need a converter box.The reason is that for almost two years before the conversion, the /tv people knew what was going to happen and they were getting rid of the 'old' stock.The TV must say it is digital ready.
p.s. I looked it up for you...SORRY!!
"" The manufacturer has informed us that this model has been discontinued. However, it might still be available for sale.""
p.s.s. Now I know for sure that it is not digital ready...get the converter box.

Model ctgv2727


Broksonic CTGV 2727 is an analog tv, so you'll need the converter if you use an antenna. If you're a cable tv subscriber, the cable provider will do the conversion on their end and you won't need the converter in that case.

Whats wrong with my color conversion?


You have convergence IC's that have to be replaced. There are 2 of them I suggest U replace both as in about 3 months the other will have to be replaced and you will be facing a double service call and labour bill if both are replaced at the same time U will to only pay once.
