One of the worst writeups I've ever seen on the digital transition / coupon program. Some wonderful quotes,
DTV conversion program riddled with problems | LoHud.com | The Journal News
The government program to issue $40 coupons to subsidize the purchase of DTV converter boxes has been a near failure.
The box only transmits a few channels of the regular 2 through 13 that were previously received.
The channels that are received at one time are not received at another.
Channels that are received freeze up or become shattered. It was promised the box would allow all channels to be received the same as before the DTV switch.
