I know there where some discussions about digital convertors on the "old" forum but when I searched it nothing came up! My "Coupon" is about to expire so I need to get my convertor asap. What am I looking for in a convertor? I remember someone saying something about it should have a "through" connection or something of the sort. Anyinput would be greatly appreciated.

Hey I found this....If you do not purchase a converter box with an analog pass-through feature, you may have to physically disconnect the box every time you change from a digital channel to an analog channel. Here is the link www.ezdigitaltv.com/Analog_Pass-Through.html .

I purchased an RCA Converter box from Wal-Mart. It was priced at $49.99. With the $40 coupon the final cost was a little over $10. I have used it on several occasions and so far it works just fine. Very simple to connect and set up.

I have not been in any areas that have the low power analog stations so I do not know how it will work if I ever get in that situation.

I agree with gball. I also have the $10 WalMart converter and it works fine. No issues.

Thanks for the input. I ran out tonight and picked one up at Wally World. It is a Magnavox and was $10 after the coupon.

I have been in an area where the analog signal is weak. The digital stations were a complete washout.IMHO there are going to be a lot of books read after the change.Edited by: towhead

We have had ours for some time and hooked it up between the Ant and TV. I think it works great in one place we could not get anything without it. I have read that some boxes are better than others. I like it for short stops else it is up with the Dish or cable in the campgrounds.
