It sounds like you have an older TV without a digital tuner. You will need to buy a digital tuner box in order to receive digital over the air stations. These are generally affordable, and can be bought in many electronic stores. You may wish to check the "Where to buy OTA" forum for specific information on where to buy.
Your antenna can receive digital signals--but not decode them for your TV. The digital to analogue "converter" does this for you.
Further, you may wish to visit TVFool to get an idea of what channels are available in your area. I invite you to post your TVFool results in the appropriate reception results thread for your region.
Note that digital stations aren't as strong as most of their analog predecessors. Therefore, you may require an antenna with higher gain to capture all of the stations you received on analog.
So basically i keep my antenna, get a converter and see if that works. But the reason i came on this forum was to get a list of great converters, all i did find was a review on antenna,s. That could be interesting if my converter does not work with my rabbit ears Happen to know of a list?
There are many different types of digital ATSC (the standard used for digital over-the-air TV in Canada/US) tuner devices. We don't maintain a list, but we do have many threads discussing each option in detail.
Generally, they're broken down to two types: Non-recording (both HD and non-HD), and recording.
In these threads, you'll find information on recording (PVR/DVR) tuners:
