being able to switch display formats without delving into menus would be
nice;some stations broadcast 16:9,some 4:3,some change depending on
program.Having a button for that on the remote would be handy.
My Magnavox 100TBMW9 doesn't have it.

I just came back from Walmart. They had the converters on sale for
$29.99. If we wait long enough, they should be free. :-) Hell, with
any luck, we may get money back knowing how the government wants to
take care of those who can't take care of themselves.
Seems I got screwed again by the government and business for trying to
do what is right in a timely manner.

These are going to be like the "UHF converters" they sold in the 50s.
They will quickly become obsolete as the market catches up to the
technology and they will be 50 cents in garage sales. I bet that may
actually come sooner since a lot of people with cable or satellite
bought 2 simply because they were virtually "free" with the coupon.
I have cable but I got one since our cable is out during and after the
most minimal tropical storm. It seems to work fine with a little UHF

They were Magnavox. I asked the cashier about them, but she didn't'
know what happens when you use a coupon. She said you probably won't
get any money back, but since it really isn't a "sale", you won't have
to pay any sales tax. She said she has yet to sell any at that price,
so she wasn't sure. They have tons of them on the shelf.
I bought 2 many months ago. I need one mainly for my RV since I can't
run a cable 500 miles. :-)
get dish satellite tv, you can take a receiver with you.
wierdly I tried buying a converter at sears, the sales clerk refused
my purchase, claiming they couldnt accept my visa card for the
balance. had to ber cash or check
this after buying a different model at best buy and paying with the
