    No I do not have cable or satelite. How about the Sony TV Model: KV27FS120 Trinitron. Does it have a "digital tuner" already built in?

    Thank you in advance.

Your set does not have the correct tuner in it. However, the broadcast change only effects those that use an external antenna for reception. If you are using cable, satelite or any other service for TV, you do not need the converter.

    The digital tuners referred to in that case are for digital cable signals and are not the over-air signals. With either set you will need the converter.

I HAVE A 2004 RCA MODEL 24V511T. dO i NEED A DIGITAL TUNER IN ORDER TO FOR IT TO WORK AFTER FEBRUARY 17?


Model has one NTSC RF and two NTSC composite inputs. It's compatible with analog Over The Air and non-scrambled analog cable broadcasts. After the US analog cutoff (currently scheduled for June 12) it WILL require a digital to analog converter to receive ATSC digital TV transmisions.

I have a sony trinitron wega tv model number KV-32FS120 and I was wondering if it is digital ready or do I need to get a converter box


This television receiver has only an analog broadcast tuner and will require a converter box after February 17, 2009, to receive over-the-air broadcasts with an antenna because of the U.S.'s transition to digital broadcasting. Analog-only TVs should continue to work as before with cable and satellite TV services, gaming consoles, VCRs, DVD players, and similar products.

Will the JVC TV model AV-27820 mfg 1997 become obsolete i n February?


It will still work fine if you have cable or satellite. If you are using an antenna to receive broadcast signal you will need to get a digital converter box from an electronics store like Best Buy. You can get discount coupons from the federal government good for 40 dollars towards the converter. Google "Digital Covnverter Coupon Program" and it should give you a link to the site to apply for up to 2 coupons.

HD tv changes


The changes that you mention will only effect you if you use either rabbit ears or a rooftop antenna. The over-air broadcast signals are being changed from analog to digital. If you have cable or satelite service, there will be no change.

Digital


From what I see under amazon.com, it does not have a digital tuner.

But the February 2009 turn off is a deadline for over the air only.
When cable companies turn off their analog signals is a different matter. Some may soon, some may wait until 2012.

The gov't coupon program is only good for converters that handle the over the air digital ATSC signals, not cable's unencrypted digital QAM signals.
