I got my HDTV converter the other day! Now I can watch TV in 2009 and later even when cable goes out or we are camping.
I got a the $40 coupon in the mail that I signed up for here https://dtv2009.gov/ so it only cost me about $10.00.
I hooked the box up and it works. The picture was pretty pixelated. Worse than what I see through Cox Cable. But it'll work.
