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.

I have an older model hitachi tv and im trying to set up an antenna but im not picking up any pictures. Thanks for your help.


How old is it? Is it an analog set?. There are no more analog broadcasts. You need a digital to analog converter box to watch the digital broadcasts. Ask your neighbors how they receive broadcasts.
Of course it is possible there are no broadcasts in your area. I live in the mountains of New York and we require satellite or cable to watch anything.

You are seeing the difference between Digital signals and analog signals.
Get one of the new Digital boxes, everything should be as clear as the other sources.
This is one of the benifits of the digital conversion that is going on,

Digital to analog converter box to tv/vcr combo


You will need a splitter and an rf modulator to do timed recording of programs. The instructions are on the dtv answers website, option # 2, record and watch a different channel. The recording is for the analog stations 1-24. You cannot record the higher stations. The items I purchased were a 3 way splitter $7 at local hardware store, an rf modulator $25 at Radio Shack. The other option was to get a cable box for the tv and record off of that at $6.95 a month or a DVR for $8.99 per month, all from comcast. The price that I paid for the items I needed would be repaid in 3 months if I were to go the comcast route. The conversion is nothing more than a money making scheme for them.
