    They are REALLY conning everyone with this crap, and they conned us out of millions in taxes as well (wonder who got all that ...). My 1998 TV can even read the digital signal just fine. LOL

    We can also send text message's with our minds, so why not digital tv signals too?


    Again, another $$$$ saving tip!

    I'll believe telepathy being practical (much less possible) when I see it ... well ... you know.

    One thing, if we were to work on anything dealing with the mind we will have to ditch this dead-end digital crap totally, since the brain uses analog anyway. Life is analog, not digital, for a reason: two state logic cannot handle the complexities of reality.

    Do you also have comcast or direct tv? Because if so that is why you have a signal! It only really affects people who use rabbit ears!
    By the way I think they have given out something like 40 or more million coupons and only 18 million have used them so far so they have stopped giving out the coupons for right now but you can get on a waiting list!

    Rabbit ears ... broadcast only. I won't pay for TV anymore than we were already forced to (where do you think the money for those coupons came from). It's a con job someone conned the government into getting involved to steal tax money from us. I have an old TV that I keep together with electrical tape, it has a built in VHS (oh yeah, memories) player.

    Also, a lot of the coupons given out expired and they won't re-issue them (so the company that makes the boxes got the money without free and clear from out taxes).

    Bottom line: Most people will not have to get the stupid signal boosters (that's what they really are oddly) because even TV's as old as 1998 will likely have the digital chips in them already. They conned our government, the people who manufacture the chips, and are getting away with it. This is the WORST time to be wasting money on cons, they are stealing money from all of us as tax payers and for something that isn't even needed.

    I'm glad Obama at least wants to delay the change. My TV is from 1986 and I can't get a coupon. I'm on the lookout for a newer tv before I buy any equipment. It's good to know your '98 set has the chip. Maybe I'll be lucky enough not to have to buy anything.
