I need one more converter box for a guest bedroom. Any ideas on where to buy for cheap? Went to Walmart this weekend and the cheapest one I could find was . That's worth more than the TV I'm connecting it to.
This is a discussion on Where to buy cheap converter box? within the Converter Boxes and ATSC Tuners forums, part of the Over-the-Air (Antenna TV) category.
Just my thoughts on the matter..
eBay worked for me -- got a nice Insignia NS-DXA1 for $29, reduced to $14 because of an error in the listing.
Just did a search and found an "almost new" (probably open box item) APEX DT-502 for $33. According to an old review on this site referring to this model: "The Apex is a fantastic tuner with great features, really a cream of the crop machine."

But you can probably do better, if you're willing to haggle and bid.

Why, you ask? It has the best program guide of any converter box. My TV has no program guide. $38 is a fair price for this box.
