Why but the HDTV tuner if you are not ready for it yet? Keep the money in your pocket.
If the question is; will my HDTV received my analog cable signals? the answer is most likely yes.
I am thinking about getting an HDTV tuner before I get an HD compatible tv or tv/monitor. I would like to know will the tuner convert my analog signal or do I need to have digital cable to see my HD channels. A second part to this question is, will I get better reception on my Akai analog tv channels if I hold off on the new LCD tv or tv/monitor at this time. I am thinking of getting the Samsung HDTV Teresstrial Tuner model:SIRT451. I have Comast Cable standard package. Thanks G.W.A
