Re: you dont need that junk/garbage converter!
most newer TV and DVR have digital turner build-in! u dont need that junk/garbage! save the environment please!
I have a TV from 2004 that doesn't have the ATSC tuner built in. I tried holding off, but my RCA TV from 1994 quit working after 10 years, and there were still way too little in the way of ATSC tuner TV's in 2004. That was because the TV makers kept holding off on putting them in TV's, even as the original date was creeping up on the makers.
It was either 2005 or 2006 that TV makers were mandated to put ATSC tuners in all new TV's. If TV makers hadn't balked at the idea earlier in the decade, we would have had more TV's with ATSC tuners built-in much sooner. I even have an uncle who has a Samsung LCD TV from 2002, and it doesn't even have an ATSC tuner built in. Instead, it was worded at HD Ready, and not HD built-in.
So for someone like me, I had to get the converter box, as my TV set from 2004 still works, and not willing to get rid of it.
