    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.
