Question about Hitachi 51F510 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Although your TV is hd ready, it does not come with a digital tuner built into it.
You will have to add an external tuner box to receive digital broadcast stations.
I don't suggest getting one of the cheap ones, as the only provide an SD signal at 480p, clear compared to old analog tv, which was usually 320, but still a far cry from 1080p.
A good tuner box should only run around 60-70 dollars or so, and the picture quality will amaze you on your 51F510.
The tv has a 1080p engine built into it, so if it receives an input with a 1080 signal, it can display it properly.
Cheaper boxes may only offer 720p as it's highest definition output, so get the better box.
You can find them at all major electronics stores, like Fry's and Best Buy.
Hopefully, you do get a digital box for your set, it would be a shame to not get the most out of what is arguably the best quality rear projection tv that was ever made.
I hope this helps you out.
Feel free to give me a top rating if I helped you out, it helps to keep my status up on Fixya.
Thanks, and have a good day !
