Yesterday, the CASTi Company in Korea contacted us and sent their
specifications and pictures on the CASTi
CAX–01 Converter Box. They do not have a retailer
or a price for their box yet.

DF2000 were added to the list of NTIA approved
coupon-eligible converter boxes.
Radio Shack is now carrying the Digital
STREAM DTX9900 for $59.99.
There have been so many questions about VCRs
and Converter Boxes; it’s going to be a difficult
transition. It may be tricky to continue using your VCR and
you may want to purchase a digital recorder that will not only be able
to record all of your favorite TV shows, but it will also replace the
need for a converter box. We have a new page that discusses
your options and some of the digital
recorders on the market.
We just received information that the EchoStar
TR-40 will not be available until June or July 2008.
Most frequently asked question: Can I put a converter box between the
antenna and a splitter to feed all the TV sets in my house?
Answer: A digital to analog converter box cannot be connected to
several TVs at the same time using a splitter because all of the TVs
would view the same channel; the one that the converter box is set to.
The converter box can only be tuned to one channel at a time.
Unfortunately, each TV set will need its own converter box.
As we gather information about the converter boxes, where they are sold
and the prices, we will post it on the Converter
Box Retailers page along with all the latest information so
check there often!
