Converter Boxes Keep Breaking

Everytime we get a converter box it last till the warranty ends then it doesn’t work.

We are on our 3rd box and its getting old already. We have a dtv pal which always turns it’s self off all the time and now we have a huge black screen covering the whole tv so we can’t see anything.

Have your converter boxes been installed in an enclosure? They do tend to run hot, and need a lot of room to breath. MrPogi even put extra cooling holes in his to keep it cool. Also, most converter boxes have a energy saver mode that turns the box off after a set period of time. The saver mode can be shut off in the menus. And CptlA may be correct about the closed captions.
