It would have been very strange for Time Warner Cable to host a forum and demonstrate that the DTV boxes will work well (1/28, FYI/Food, “Converters still may not bring in channels”). Scaring folks into signing up for cable will fatten their purses.
I have been using a converter box for several months now and have been delighted. My analog TVs have clearly picked up only three channels for the 23 years I have lived in Overland Park. Now I receive great reception on 16 channels and expect more when the HD signal becomes universal.
The occasional pixel is a smaller price to pay than a cable bill.
