Yes these boxes are still available, just a slightly different version than
when they first came out. The only difference that I know of is that they
now pass through the analog signals. Most reports from the other TV Dxers
that I've seen seem to agree that this is one of the best ones out there.
I'm not sure what the exact model number of the Insignia is, but the Zenith
is the DTT901, where the first version was the DTT900.
