Has anyone already done the research on the converter boxes for TVs (to convert from digital to analog for my elderly TV) and care to tell me which one I should get? Consumer Reports did a review of the first three that were available, but now there are a bunch more out. Or there are supposed to be soon. Argh. Confused. I may end up getting a new TV - my current one likes to show color blotches over the picture - but I'd like to at least try the free converter thing.
An annoying fact I have learned: When a digital signal gets weak, the picture doesn't go fuzzy, it disappears entirely. Which means every time a train goes by, my TV is going to drop out. I may end up having to get cable. Ugh. Or resorting to Netflix and friends' houses for my visual entertainment needs.
