But the real question is whether these converter boxes enable an old TV set to produce a digital-
quality picture.  I doubt it.  I'm gathering that all they do is convert the digital signals into an 
analog signal that can be viewed on the old TV set.  That being the case, I can't see why anyone 
would want to buy one of these devices so long as the analog signals remain on the air.
