I wasted my STUPID coupons by getting them the very first day that one could -- NO converters worth buying were available at any price until July of this year! Before I got the stupid coupons, there was NO mention that they would expire -- that came out AFTER I'd applied for them! Now I am STILL trying to find converters with a program timer built in.
I have read that TWO models exist, but I have found information on only ONE: the Dish Network's "Echostar"/"DTV -Pal". Sears is supposed to carry it, but they only got one shipment in July and now cannot get it at all. Where can I find a decent DTV converter with a Program Timer built in?
I'm exasperated at how poorly this nearly worthless coupon program has been handled!!!!

You will be viewing analog standard definition TV, the same signal that's come out of your cable as before. Nothing will change for you.
