Have you got your DTV converter box yet?

The February 17th digital transition is sneaking up quickly. Will the country be ready for this historic event or will the day be be remembered as the day all hell broke loose? If the Wilmington, NC test last week is any indication of what will happen in February, you better get your emergency food and water supplies stocked up.

Below is the most recent list of NTIA approved DTV converter boxes. The digital-to-analog converter boxes are available at Best Buy, Circuit City, Kmart, RadioShack, Sears, Target and Wal-Mart.

    Yes, I actually got my TV converter box about 2 weeks ago. It was the Tivax stb-t8 and it works so good. All of my pictures come in perfectly clear and the sound is also great. And thats all without mentioning that it added 9 channels to my channel lineup.

    took a look through Amazon’s extensive third party suppliers and couldn’t find. A web search for vendors turned up kind of questionable. I know they had production problems so you may want to consider a different brand.

    I bought an Access HD DTA1050D, It didn’t work on any of my televisions. I picked up another, DigitalStream DTX9950, and it worked on all. The return policy on the Access is bad, I wouldn’t suggest it.
