Default Re: TV Converter Box Coupon Program

I bought a DTX9900 from Radio Shack and a Magnavox TB100MW9 from Walmart. The only thing I didn't like about the Digitalstream unit is that it doesn't have the analog pass through so you can watch the analog broadcasts right now while they are still using them since not all stations around here are broadcasting in digital yet. I don't have them hooked up yet anyway, I'll wait till February to do that.

When all else fails...Ham Radio!

I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'

The area I live in doesn't have clear access to the local stations in Southern California. I can access two Spanish channels at best.

Looks like I'm stuck with Time Warner Cable.

Stop the genocide now.

The digital signal is loads better then the old analog, and I feel the HD stuff is much better quality than what I get with Direct TV.
