I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the response given above is not correct. The only time a converter box is required is if the set uses an antenna. Cable and satellite reception remains the same. The conversion required by law in Feb 2009 effects over-air broadcasts only. The aspect ration 4:3 vs 16:9 has nothing to do with digital vs. analog.

    Additional information:



    Check with the local stations as if they are small enough, they are exempt from the requirement for digital broadcasting. You may not need a converter at all.

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

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.

Analog to digital conversion on Aquos?


First of all, the change is actually goping from analog over-air broadcasting to a digital signal. Second, if you have cable or satelite, you don't need anything. The only time a converter is required is if you use rabbit ears or an external antenna. In your case, the TV DOES have a digital tuner so you DO NOT need a converter in either case.

Do I need a conversion box??


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:
