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!

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.

IS THIS A DIGITAL TV


The receivers of many older HDTV READY TVs had two receivers one for analogue and one for digital so that they could accommodate the new Digital signals as they were being broad cast by some stations only a few hours a day until the FCC made up it's mind to switch all stations to digital Since there are no more over the air digital signals, then if you can receive over the air stations with out having to run them through a converter, then you have an HDTV. cable companies send out a converted digital signal for it's older tv owners and a HDTV digital signal for it's HDTV owners, of which they charge a slight premium.

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.

Need help locating a box to make my TV receive true HDTV


You Dont need one your set is HD. So when the switch happens you are good to go. The only TVs that are going to need converter boxes is those who do not have HD or only have antenna.
