Digital Transition is Around the Corner!

The countdown is on before television makes the digital switch.  If you’re using rabbit ears to catch your favorite programming you won’t be able to see it unless you have a digital converter box.  Without your digital converter box all you will see is “snow” after February 17th 2009. So it’s very important that you grab a digital converter box.

Once your tv converter box is turned on it will give you a setup mode or menu.  The first thing you’ll notice is the inital setup screen.  Keep in mind, each converter box setup is different.  It may ask you to continue the set up, and ask you which language preferences you like.  It may ask you to select a time zone, and how you would like to view your picture.

At some point in your setup wizard, the autoscan will scan all of the available channels. You want to make sure you get to this point. This is the only way your digital converter box will be able to find all the channels you need. 

Once your autoscan is complete, you will have a clear digital picture that you will be able to see on your regular television using your regular antenna that you’ve been using all along.

It’s a very simple and easy process to setup. All you have to do is follow the directions in the box. If you would like more information on these digital converter boxes visit the following link.

    For Turn to 2 staff….
    I recently started preparation for the digital transition of Feb 2009. I have my converter box and recently purchased a small LCD/Digital TV for my kitchen. Well what we have not been told is that even with a digital ready TV or by using a converter box, you still have to purchase a DTV set of rabbit ears for you TV if you do not intend to connect them to cable or satellit. I hope others investigate this expenditure in time because you may think something is wrong with the converter box. This was my experience. I am not sure it applies to all TV but it did for me.
