do you mean [FORTY-nine] 49.95?
That's what Wal-Mart is selling Magnavox
converters for,and with sales tax,it adds up to $13.
If a DTV converter sold for $10,I wouldn't bother with coupons.
the Echostar converter was -supposed- to sell for only $40(essentially
free),but hadn't been available when I got my coupons and not for the next
90 days of validity.
I'm curious about something. On three different TVs with digital
tuners, a 2002 model with a set top box, a 2008 model with built in OTA
digital tuner, and my mother's portable with a digital converter, it
seems like the digital signal does a VERY poor job of penetrating
walls. The only thing that I've tried so far that worked worth a crap
is an outdoor rooftop antennae and even that was affected if the wind
blew the leaves on the tall trees between the antennae and the
transmitter towers downtown. Are others having similar experiences?
I think that's true with the ABC station here. Also, they seem to be
planning to go back to the original channel (analog on 7, digital on
10) later. Maybe they're now using a low power transmitter for digital
and will switch to the full power one (currently being used for
Why would sub channel availability have anything to do with
Many if not most of the current ATSC transmissions are at considerably
lower power than the stations main NTSC transmission and will switch to
full power when the NTSC transmitter is shutdown. Some of these ATSC
transmissions are operating at a few kW now and will be in the MW range
after the cutover. Somewhere on the FCC site there is a database listing
the pre and post cutover power levels. Sub channels have nothing to do
