TV came out when I was a kid, back in the 50’s. At least in our house. That was almost 60 years ago. Since then we have had numerous electronic advances. I find it extreemly difficult to comprehend how so many can not understand this conversion and the difference between Digital and Analog. Or can not do a simple thing like disconnect the antenna from the TV, hook it to the converter, then connect the supplied wire from the converter to the TV, set TV on channel 3 or 4 (and leave it), plug the convert power cord into a wall outlet, turn it on and follow the menu. Oh yeah, READ the instructions.(But I guess some can’t read) Some of the converters had problems, I believe because of hurriedly creating and building them, BUT ALL that I have seen have been promptly replaced. I know of one particular instance of 4 times… for the same customer. I do believe that the Goverment gave plenty of notice. (Except for the stupid 90 day rule.) The problem was two fold on others. Populace NOT paying attention and the electronic companies not making enough, fast enough. The card dates were expiring before enough converters were available. But when they tried catch up, the quality suffered. Course now New TV sales have picked up since ALL New TVs must have a Digital Tuner. Which I believe is really what was wanted anyway … helps the economy??
