I was in WalMart on Sunday and notice they have stacks and stacks of

Radio Shack has one brand I've not heard of. Has anyone tested one of
these things out yet?



It must be this one, priced at $49.87:

There are reviews on their site. They also sell this Thomson brand
STB, also priced at $49.87, but it includes a remote:

They only sell them in stores, no doubt to take advantage of the
government $40 coupon program.


the Magnavox converter TB100MW9 also includes a remote.
the key layout is kinda funky.

I just bought one yesterday.
