I don't get it. Here we are less than a year and a half away from
analog turning off and hardly any selection of set top boxes. It
appears the few available are of the older generation tuner chipsets
they suck. What's going on here? It appears there is the demand. I
want to update my TV to HD but I do want digital over the air. Is it
that the manufacturers are hoping people buy a new TV instead?
Tom, who wants a decent set top box for a decent price (<$175.)
All the new dvd recorders with ATSC tuners should have latest
And you can buy one of them for under $175 and get a dvd recorder too.
Here's one for $140 bucks.
And another for $180.
Thanks for the links. I make it a policy of mine to never buy at
Wal-Mart, however, I'll make an exception every now and then. This is
one of those exceptions. I'll buy the upper link you listed, tomorrow.
Wal-Mart is only a 20 miles drive. If it doesn't work like I want, I'll
return it that same day and won't feel bad about returning it since it's
Wal-Mart. :-) If I do decide to keep it, I'll make a contribution to my
favorite charity otherwise I'd feel quilty about buying from Wal-Mart.
Great idea and thanks,.
