I'm curious who is using the new digital tv converter and how you like it? We have cable and its far too expensive. We are thinking about going back to the bunny ear atenna (which we have) and getting the converter box. Would love to hear form those of you who are using it.

  • I love the digital cable! we have many channels and several sub channels. Such as PBS 8.1, PBS KIDS 8.2, PBS KNOWLEDGE 8.3 so (3) PBS channels in all. The rabbit ears are not super great for it though. It will work but you will get a better less choppy signal with a powered antenna. We had to switch to the powered antenna because we were not able to get a couple of channels really at all. The converter box coupon you can get cover all but about $10 at wal-mart.

  • Crapy, we still had to get basic cable to get anything.
