I'm sorry, but it has an analog tuner. So you will need the converter box.

Dtv ready?


Going to the following link will help you to find out if your television is DTV ready or not:

http://www.dtvtransition.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=51&Itemid=94

Using their online tool, select the Brand (Akai) and the Model from the list. If you cannot find your model in the list (which I was not able to for your television), they are saying that you most likely do not have a digital tuner.

All is not lost, however. As stated on the aforementioned site, you can consider one of the following options:

  • Purchase a digital-to-analog converter box that plugs into an existing television. The boxes, which are expected to cost between $40 - 70 will be available for purchase in 2008. Beginning in February 2008, U.S. households can request up to two coupons valued at $40 each. Each coupon can go toward the purchase of a single set-top converter box that will allow you to continue watching FREE "over-the-air" television on an analog set.
  • Subscribe to a cable, satellite or telecommunications service provider if all desired local broadcast stations are carried by that service.
  • Purchase a new television set with a built in digital tuner.

    Listed on the page is further information that may help you to determine the status of your TV:

  • Consult your owner's manual. If that's not possible, you may be able to look up information about your TV set on the manufacturer's website. Or, you can take an up-close look at your TV set. You are trying to find out if your set has an input connection labeled "digital input" or "ATSC" (for Advanced Television Systems Committee, which is developing the DTV format).
  • If you bought your TV set before 1998, it probably doesn't have a digital tuner at all. Almost every TV set made before 1998 was a traditional "analog" set that can't display digital TV signals without either a special converter or a cable TV connection. If you bought a big-screen, projection TV between 1998 and 2004, it's possible there's a built-in digital tuner inside. But chances aren't great. Only a limited percentage of projection TV sets (and generally only those 42 inches in diameter or larger) included digital tuners before 2004.
  • If you've purchased a new TV set since 2004, your chances of having a built-in digital tuner improve dramatically. Starting in 2004, many of the TV sets sold at popular electronics stores have featured digital tuners that will let you receive the new digital over-the-air broadcasts starting in February 2009. But be wary: It's not a sure thing. Even some of the newer TV sets are purely display monitors that lack the internal circuitry needed to pick up digital broadcasts. Usually these sets have been advertised as "HD-ready" or "HDTV monitor" sets. That means they can display digital and high-definition signals, but they need help getting those signals in the first place. You'll still need a special converter or a cable TV connection.

    Does my Sanyo TV Model Number DS31650 need a converter box?


    As long as you have either cable or satellite, you will be OK. The change coming in Feb. is for people who still use an outside antenna( rabbit ears). Please take time to rate this response. Thanks

    Digital Conversion in Feb. 2009


    It looks like you will need a HDTV tuner not a converter box. Here's the link to your manual.

    Conversion box


    this set is a standard 4:3 projection, so yes, to receive digital, you will need a converter.

    Does my plasma need set top box


    The changeover slated for Feb 2009 only effects those people that receive TV signals from antennas. If you currently use cable or satelite, you do not requrie a set top box. Your particular model has an HD tuner so you would be fine in both cases.

    You may have to purchase a new antenna to do that search for one that is specifically for digital reception and good for the distance from station to home. (Range rating)

    Digital or not digital


    this tv has no digital tuner built in to it. In order to recieve a digital broadcast the tuner must be atsc compliant. The best solution is to get a converter box to decode digital to analog signal.
