Both are analog. The key is the "NTSC" notation. In order to
be a DTV, you need ATSC. These TVs will still work with DTV if
you get a set-top converter box, cable box, or satellite TV
receiver. You will see the digital picture, and see what people
see with HDTV, but the quality level will be a little bit lower.
No need to replace them unless you want the HD level picture
A minor nit John. Digital TV is not HDTV. All HDTV is digital, but
the converse is not true. There is no reason to believe that all
digital broadcasts will be in letterbox format, some may still be in
John, I know you know this but OPs recent posts seem to show that he
is very confused, obstinate or a troll.
Yes, this stuff is all pretty confusing, but I did pick my terms
to mean what I said. That is, with HDTV, you get the 16x9 picture
with 720 or 1080 lines of resolution. If he goes with a converter
box, the will see a picture, but it will be down-converted to
4x3 and 525 lines. That is perfectly fine for 75% of people.
In fact, the analog picture will look very nice since it comes
from a source with no static and no ghosts. But if he wants
to see the extra screen real estate for get the extra picture
depth, then he really does need a new TV. If someone does
broadcast a 4x3 picture, then he will be fine, but still not
see the full depth of quality that might be in the picture.
