I live at least 40 miles from any TV station, and have a rooftop antenna with an amplifier that works pretty well with my two analog TVs. I am planning to get at least one digital TV, since I hear its not practical to use a converter box with anything less than a 20 inch set, due to horizontal and vertical letterboxing. I ordered one coupon and have let it expire for the other TV, but now I wonder if its even worth buying a converter for that TV since I am likely to get few or no channels with the converter box. I guess I can get one box and experiment with it, and then talk to my antenna guy about upgrading to a smart antenna, which should be helpful no matter what I do. I get stations from 3 states, including 4 PBS stations, so am not excited about going to basic cable or dish. Your reactions to my plan will be appreciated.
