Have question on digital tv transformation.

I have one of the little two and a half inch screen tvs .I guess they are junk after Feb too right? Nothing you can get to make them work. Anyone know anything positive about this please let me know. I'd sure appreciate it. Thanks.

Unless it has an external antenna connection you probably won't be able to receive many channels. (Not all channels will shut off their analog transmissions. Some low-power broadcasters and repeaters are exempt.)

Even with an external antenna connection it will be a bit cumbersome to have to lug around an antenna and converter box. Not very portable ...

question on digital tv

I know where your coming from,but it seems like these companies would be abe to come up with a simple version of the same thing as a converter.I'm talking about these companies that made these little tvs. Sure ,they'll make a new tv to get the digital signals. yeah.

Thanks for your reply.

Wait and see !!!

If Casio, or whoever, can make a 3" TV with an analog receiver, I'm sure they can produce one with a built in OTA tuner.
