Have any of you had success installing these boxes?  I bought the Zenith box, but my RCA Antenna doesn't fit it.  Any and all suggestions are welcomed.  TIA!

PD Meggy-you'll need the antenna to plug into the converter box to get the signal.   I'll prolly need to buy a new antenna.  For now, I'm still trying to find a converter for my antenna.    Undecided


Make sure you get the $40 coupon.

PD Meggy,  I need the antenna b/c I don't have cable.  If you have cable, you don't need the TV converter box.

I don't watch a lot of tv, so its a decision I made.   Once I convert my antenna, the transition should be smooth.   You rock!

I've been paying the cable company. I need my HBO and all the other random channels you don't get for free.
