Digital TV Converter Boxes - Are any UL tested anymore?

I am in the process of looking for another digital tv converter box for our RV and I am noticing that NOTHING I am finding is UL tested/listed. All the converter boxes (I assume all made in china) make no mention of UL approval.
Thoughts? Thanks!

PS Yes, I need one for my particular situation.....

Lots of today's electronics do not have a UL approval. But they have a global certification.

Could have CSA, CE or NOM. Lots of power supplies have these ratings.

Look for a "CE Mark" designation. That is the more rigorous European version of UL. If you see that it will be suitable for use in the US as well as most of the rest of the known world.
