FWIW I won a 16.5" LCD screen TV with digital tuner at my last company picnic It is slated for installation in my of these days I did, however check it out hooked up to my 20+ year old rotator home antenna. Great picture and great pickup on the number of stations over the older analog set in the house. Don't need to "upgrade" any antennas unless you are using a coat hanger and tinfoil...then it might be advantageous

Digital Signal

Tha digital signals are being broadcast by most stations, especially in larger cities.
We installed a 20" Vizio HD in our 1965 Caravel a year ago. The only problem is, I should have put in a bigger set. The old antenna, the folding one outside on the left front corner, with the little handle inside to turn it, works just fine. If your antenna has a UHF loop built in, which most all have since the 60s, it will pick up digital broadcast just fine.

As far as a box to convert your old TV to play digital, that's up to you.....But...after seeing HD on a new, flat, bright screen, I don't have an old "tube" TV I want to spend the converter money to watch.
Does the saying "throwing good money after bad" ring a bell?
