What a novel idea; a battery-powered DTV converter box. I believe this is the first of it’s kind and I’m thankfully Winegard has developed the little bugger. With analog broadcasts going black on February 17, a lot of folks backup TVs are not going to work without a DTV box. The details are still a little grey on the converter itself, but it seems like there is going to be an option $14.99 battery pack that plugs into a standalone unit which is good ‘nough for us. No word on when this guy is gong to be available but we hope soon.
