Well, we officially managed to get ahold of a TV converter box. The hardest part of getting it setup was getting the end of the power cord through the teenytiny little hole in the back of our entertainment unit. You see, the DVD player is on a shelf above the TV and we put the Convertor box on top of it. Well, my Father-in-law built it and it's beautiful, don't get me wrong. However, he also forgot that cords need to run through it so it really only has a makeshift hole that we had to make bigger. It kind of turned into a long process. Anyway, it's setup now and we do get a few more channels and when they come in clear, they are great to watch but when they don't, forget it. At least with analog you could watch it a little fuzzy. DTV becomes very pixelated and the sound is the first thing to go. Jury is still out whether this is going to be a vast improvement or just annoying.
