Converter for: Panasonic DVD/VCR SC-HT800V and Olevia Syntax TV LT27HVX


1. I have a Panasonic DVD/VCR Home Theater SC-HT800V and Olevia-Syntax TV LT27HVX series. Do they have a digital tuner? If not, can I buy one converter for both of them?
2. I am using a simple rabbit ears antenna Philips MANT110. Do I need another one?
3. Also we have an older TV Sylvania model SST4191 manufactured in Sept. 2001. Do we need a converter for this one?
4. what type of box can you recommend to service all of them?
Thanks a lot.

1. No, your Syntax Olevia LT27HVX is HD Ready, but still needs a digital tuner. You could get a Coupon Elgible Converter Box or a HD tuner and receive HDTV.

2. The Philips MANT110 should be just fine.

3. You'll need a converter box for that TV too.

4. There is no such thing as a single converter box that works for more than 1 TV. You'll need a converter for each TV.
