The quest for a DTV converter

Watchability Now - And
Unwatchability After the Switchover (No television obtainable.)
The trouble is, that many analog channels which are acceptably watchable now, snowfall and all sorts of,
will show "no sign" after the switch to electronic, although you have a brand-new digital converter box.
I currently can view about 4 of these analog channels (7, 9, 20, 46 - san francisco bay area Bay Area).
We expect, that following the electronic switchover, I will see absolutely nothing on any channel.
To complicate matters more, television channels is going to be dropping their particular production capacity to 85per cent of just what it had been
utilizing an analog signal, since the brand-new digital signal is "higher high quality", and also the greater power is "not needed".

"The difficulty with DTV is that it does not break down gracefully, the way NTSC (analog) television does: when NTSC signals tend to be marginal, you get snowfall in the photo, although audio does not cut fully out until the (FM) sign is just too weak for complete quieting. With DTV, the audio cuts away as soon as the image does, and there's no "adequate" center floor: it's both good or really gone." . . . from W1AC on

My Option - #12
Considering that the authorities, I moved ahead, and bought at a high price Item #12 above, the Zenith DTT901, even though it lacks an S-Video output. I've constantly liked Zenith TVs, well-known for quality and reliability. There is A LOT of good comments about this device from genuine radio-head kind gurus (Radio Amateurs) - you never BS these guys. When swapped into position, it really is reported for indicators that some others never! It appears to have the best "front end" - the ability to capture weak signals (which implies high gain, low noise figure first amp, and a high Signal/Noise Ratio, manufactured by LG Electronics). Note that Consumer Reports will not give it a high rating, for reasons uknown. I believe they are wrong.
FOLLOWUP - After buying the Zenith DTT901, I today get ZERO CHANNELS. The box onscreen sign energy meter (great function) shows an electronic digital signal on 16 stations, but NO CHANNEL is good enough to create a photo or sound.
