    My family bought a 65" Widescreen Mitsubishi Diamond Series TV Christmas of 2001 (might have been 2000, I will find out.)

    I have read places that it does indeed have a HD tuner built in, and I have read other places that it doesn't.

    If it doesn't, we are going to buy one for my dad on his birthday. Mitsubishi makes one called the HD-1000. Do you guys have any suggestions?

    We are looking to spend around 350$ (even if its on eBay).

    I seriously doubt it has an HDTV tuner built-in. Most TV's advertise "HDTV ready", you'll rarely see one with the tuner in it already.

    i read that as HD meaning Hard Drive, not Hi-Def at first.

    what does it say in the manual??? surely it must say something, whether it be HD-ready or otherwise....

    if you could provide a model number, this would probably be easier to track down.

    I found a owners book, and it has 4 model numbers on the front. Two start with 65 (for 65") so I will type those...
