Since I am somewhat challenged in doing some of my own work I made the decision to have my dealer do my digital box install. With my coupons the total bill was only $110.00. For me it was money well spent as everything looks and works perfectly. I was really leary about the bedroom TV since I could see anyway to get to it? They cut a hole big enough to get your hand through on the bottom shelf and ran the connection up through there.

The digital units also have the analog pass through. You do pick up quite a few more channels with the set up.

So - I am a happy camper...

I to have my problems with electronics. I posted here and recieved some great help. The front TV is now working great, still need to do the one in the bedroom. That one does look like it will be harder to get to. Not sure about cutting an access hole, but it would make it easier, plus a vent for more air flow seems good!

I have no problems with electronics, retired electrical engineer, but could you share what brand and model converter was used?

Thanks

I bought the Zenith converter $59.95 plus tax minus the $40.00 coupon. There are other posts talking about the different ones, and their installation.

I've been collecting them since I'm in the TV biz (I think there's 10 on my desk now). My 2 favorites this week are the Digital Stream DTX-9950, and the DTVPal. Both are analog pass-thru and both have pretty good menu structures. They both hear about the same but I like the DTX-9950 menu and remote better
