Zenith has come out with an affordable digital-to-analog TV signal converter box, the DTT900. The box, which makes it debut at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, takes the digital TV signal that broadcasters are required to use come next year and converts them to an analog signal, useable on older TVs. The digital signal that broadcasters will have to use starting February, 2009 are incompatible with older TVs; older TVs will be useless past that date without such a converter box.
This particular model also falls under the government coupon program that reimburses consumers for their purchase of such converter boxes.
Additonally, Zenith has launched a Web site to help educate consumers on just what exactly is involved in the transition from analog to digital TV.
If you own an HDTV, and I assume some of you do, this is completely irrelevant to you. Have a cookie.
