    But not for units already manufactured and purchased.

    Also, as electronics advance, it'll be less and less common to find digital converters, as all new TVs will be made with digital tuners built in, and the need to accomodate analog sets will lessen, it finally becoming unnecessary all together. :(

    I now want ice cream.

    If energy consumption is an overriding factor, then folks should replace the televisions, eh?

    Guys I have found a lot of converter box reviews. It seems like a personal blog of some buy that just decided to test a bunch of them.

    DTV Converter Box Reviews

    I'm not sure what the rules are on links but them seem pretty easy so I might post links to each individual review later.

    Funny that no one has posted here that the Tivo software updates and support for the converter boxes is now available. (Or maybe I just missed it?)

    Just found this out today and connected my Apex box to my Tivo 540040. The box to Tivo uses a s-video connection, and the Tivo to television connection is also s-video.

    Picture quality is pretty much fantastic. Way better than I imagined. It's at least as good, and possibly better than Comcast sd digital cable on my Tivo HD.

    I thought they were all good reviews. They are definately selling converter boxes through an affiliate too but they give good ratings for the best ones and there are some bad ratings in there also, its just that I only posted links to some of the top converter boxes that all have good ratings.

    I thought they were pretty fair reviews, maybe not though.

    ok, My apologies. I see now that there are actual reviews there(for some). The first one I clicked on, the ChannelMaster, only led to another link which was to the sales page.

    ChannelMaster was really about the only one I was interested in, as to me, s-video is almost a must.
