under cabinet TV's
 
My wife is excited about all the good deals in the paper for kitchen tv's.
You know the one under the cupboard "fold down"
She has always wanted one.
I warned her that these deals are because they will be out dated in 2009.
when HD tv take to the air's.
I really don't know if I'm right ? But to add a small tv and a large coverter above it sounds ridiculous. None of the ads say " HD ready "
Is there someone who can give some advise on this subject?

Thanks Deckhand

You'd need the receiver. It doesn't have a tuner built in. I would suggest a dedicated 15" lcd TV vs a drop down. Drop downs typically have very small screen sizes. The larger screen drop downs are usually very pricey.

HD is not taking over, (although I wish) they are just eliminating any analog signals, which will ONLY effect people that use an over the air antenna... Soooo, if you use CATV, Satellite, etc... you will never know it happened.

Digital is NOT the same as HD.

EDIT, I also agree with Barcardi 151's post as well, if no tuner than some sort of settop box is required... but most can be installed with an RF remote so that would solve your problem...

They are not dated. Just make sure that it contains a ATSC/NTSC/QAM tuner, which most that have been sold since last year should have at least the min. a ATSC/NTSC tuner.
