Your TV does have a digital tuner in it already. Also a converter box is only needed if you use an Antenna to recieve TV. So if you have Cable or Satillite, you will not need a box at all.

I have the same Hitachi 51G500 TV . and in the process of trying to get over the air TV since BC Canada has put Digital signals over the air ... I thought that all I would need is a digital antenna to supply channels to My 51G500!

Is there Actually another box needed too or can I get this ... " all in one ' somewhere! I'm trying to keep this in the pennies! ... An Indoor Antenna would be good to start.

Also is the Tuner inside My Hitachi 51G500 a digital ' ATSC ' Tuner?
( this is where I'm confused as I thought that that was all I needed and a digital Antenna! )
Let Me know!
Thanks!

How do I get channel with my Dynex televison?


Yes all over the air channels are now digital. Make sure that your TV is on the correct source. You can get a decent converter box at Walmart for around 20 to 50 dollars

Hdtv or converter box


If the TV is already hdtv...no. Try reprogramming tv to find hd stations or if receiving signal from outdoor aerial make sure aerial is digital and facing right direction.

I would like to know if the Hitachi 51UWX20B television can be connected to the internet.


Your Hitachi 51UWX20B is an HDTV-Ready TV. No Digital Tuner. HDTV-Ready means that your TV set is capable of displaying analog and high-definition digital pictures, but without a digital tuner, it cannot receive the digital signal. An HDTV-Ready requires an external high-definition TV receiver (digital tuner) in order to receive HDTV signals. These external receivers can be called an HDTV Tuner, set-top-box, decoder or DTV Converter Box . So you will be required to purchase a converter box to receive over the air programming from an external antenna.

No digital reception with HD ready TV.


Someone did not explain to you what HDTV "Ready" means. It means you do not have a ATSC tuner in it to except over the air digital signal. The only way you will get digital reception is either from a HD Cable box with RGB outputs that plug into your RGB inputs, or being on Satellite connecting the same way. Seven years ago manufacturers never made it easy to understand and Salesmen only made it worse. So in short the term HDTV Ready meant it can, with a BOX.

Does my Insignia come digital cable ready or do I need a convertor box?


Cablevision is forcing people to having to buy Digital Cable Boxes with decoders in them.. On top of what you are already paying you have to pay lets say 2- 6$ per tv for a box per month.  Cablevision is doing this and charging more.  It's really to bad.

Dont have cable. i bought the analog converter, but read i don't


Digital Ready is not the same as having a digital tuner built in. Yours is probably the former and you do need a converter box: http://www.ezdigitaltv.com/HDTV_vs_HDTV-Ready.html

36A50 Digital ready?


Hi duce1500,

Unfortunately, the 36A50 is not HDTV-ready. That means you will need a converter box. Here is a link to the model's specs, which includes this information:

http://www.amazon.com/Toshiba-36A50-36-TV/dp/tech-data/B00004YMBV/ref=de_a_smtd

I should mention, however, that if it's connected to cable (or certain satellite services), you won't need a converter to watch the TV - you'll receive the digital signal (although you won't have the 1080-pixel HD resolution - the 36A50 only has 850 lines of resolution).

I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
