Unless you are using an external antenna, it makes no difference. If you have cable, satellite service or FIOS, you are not efected. Only sets that depend on the over-air transmissions will be effected.

    I was able to locate further info on the set and it is NOT digital ready. A converter box will be required.

It is digital (HD), I don't need converter?


If your set is labeled as "HD ready" then it will accept HD signals from, for example, an external HD tuner or other source. The set can be HD Ready, as is my Samsung TV, but my set has only the older NTSC type tuner. I therefore use a digital stream HD tuner which works great to receive over the air signals. Also digital does not mean a set is HD. There are sets that are standard definition digital sets that can receive digital signals, but do not produce HD. If you are using cable, in most cases, you can continue receiving your cable as usual.

Is the sony trinitron 23 inch tv hd ready


You will need a model number before anyone can even do any research.
In general, there were never many CRT (picture tube) TVs made with the required ATSC tuner and if your set is 5+ years old, it isn't compatible with digital reception.

Is this TV digital ready


According to http://www.dtv.gov/consumercorner.html#faq9

How can I be sure that I am buying a digital TV (DTV)?
By law, beginning March 1, 2007, all television reception devices (including TVs, VCRs, DVRs, etc.) imported into the U.S. or shipped in interstate commerce must contain a digital tuner. Retailers may continue to sell analog-only devices from existing inventory, but must prominently display on or near the analog-only device a Consumer Alert label with this advisory:

What is the difference between “Integrated” DTVs and DTV or HDTV “Monitors”?
An Integrated DTV set is a television with a built-in digital tuner (also referred to as “a DTV”). A digital tuner is also sometimes called a DTV decoder or DTV receiver. If you have an Integrated DTV, you will not need any additional equipment, with the exception of a broadcast antenna (either a rooftop antenna or “rabbit ears” connected to the set), to receive over-the-air digital broadcast programming. Integrated DTVs can also receive and display analog broadcast programming, so you can continue watching analog broadcasts.
In contrast, a DTV Monitor is not capable of receiving digital broadcast programming without additional equipment; it is simply a display device without the processing capability for DTV reception. A digital or HD set-top box must be connected between the antenna and the monitor to receive and display over-the-air digital or HD programming.
If you have a digital or HD “Monitor” and would like to purchase a digital or HD set-top box to view over-the-air programming, confirm with your retailer that the set-top box is compatible with your Monitor.

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.

IS MY TV DIGITAL READY


Its tuner is NTSC, which will not tune in digital stations. I didn't see a DTV tuner mentioned anywhere on the specs, so don't think it will work. I myself have one and will soon purchase a converter box with the $40 rebate from the government.

Ready for nat'l digital transition?


If it is an older model (i couldn't find anything on it either), it most likely does NOT have a QAM tuner. Be aware that only the "un-encrypted" cable channels will be free otherwise you will have to buy or rent the digital box from the company to get the rest of the regular digital channels. The un-encrypted channels are like 71.2, 83.7 so you should know if you are getting those or not.

Usually on the back of the set there will be a hookup for digital tuner. To get the converter box before Feb 2009 go to http://www.dtv2009.gov

Making Trinitron HD-compatible


Every one seems to have a problem understanding what real will happen in Feb 2009 First if you already watch TV from a cable provider you WILL NOT have a problem, Now if you have a set that picks up a signal over the air (rabbit ears or antenna) then you will be affected and will need a converter. Check www.dtvtransition.org for more details. And Finlay if you watch from a satalight receiver you will be fine
