A good little converter box.

I LOVE the 8-event programming feature.

Yes, I have to have another converter box attached to my TV to allow me to watch one program while recording another. But, this is STILL way cheaper than paying 'through the nose' for Cable or DISH.

The one problem I have encountered with this converter box is that the programming settings can (and do) change themselves - seemingly at will. Is this a problem with the box? Or is it caused by the ever-shifting digital TV signals? I don't know. All I do know is that I need to REGULARLY monitor the programming to be sure it is where I had originally set it (and re-set it again). And this can be a pain.

I do miss the days of analogue TV and VCR programming consistency. But such is forced progress.

But, as I do know what the problem is - and what the solution is - I can schedule time to check and re-program a couple of times a week.

And, as long as I remember to do this, this converter box allows me to watch TV as I like to watch it: for FREE and on my schedule.

I say, since we had no choice but to go digital, Yippee!!!
