Does your tv box work? The one that you had to buy from the government? Well, mine does not. I have not been able to watch tv at all since the BIG SWitch. Big deal, maybe it is to them. I live in the country, with very few stations at all, and i can't pick up any signal, at all.

All 3 of mine work. Have you tried using a different antenna? Getting a good antenna may just be what you need. Even though we've upgraded to digital doesn't mean that we should get rid of our "rabbit ears". I'm out in the country as well and get a number of stations in. Some are stations that I couldn't get in before the big switch, such as NBC and PBS. They are nice in clear now, most of the time. Though there are still times when it may skip or lose the signal. Happy mylotting!

Thanks. I will sure get some of the rabbit ears, and see if it works on my t.v. also.

I have satellite service from Dish network so i do not need the digital box. However, my mother lives nearby and only had analog tv. She bought the converter box, did all of the set up procedures, and she got a whopping two channels for her time. Seems like more of a waste of time to me. Anybody else feel that way about the digital conversion?

I got one of the digital converter boxes also. To date, i have "no" channels, what so ever. Zip, none. I cannot even pick up a signal in my area. No chance of watching anything with that.
