HD with a converter box?

I have a Sony Trinitron Wega that is HD ready and I have had HD TV service and the picture looked pretty good. Now that I am trying to cut the cord I know I need a digital tuner in order to view OTA HD on this TV, but from what I have read, all the outputs are analog. Am I missing something here? How do I get HD OTA broadcasts to this TV??

My other TV has a tuner so I'm only looking at one TV that needs a tuner.

How do you know your Sony is "HD ready"? Please provide the Model Number of your set and we may be able to find its' specifications.

It appears that it's 1080i Analog, and all you should need is a (good quality) Digital to Analog Converter.

I see that it also has a HDMI input, but I'm not sure if there are any Converters out there with that ?
