ANJIE NOTE: get your 2 free converter box coupons (per address) converter box and be ready for the switch
another tip from freelancer, JEFF, "everyone should have 1 converter box" in case of emergency - should cable be "out" to watch upcoming weather reports and news!"
As a person who has to get a converter box to still have TV in February, I would like to share some information that maybe others in my situation are not aware of.
After hooking up the converter box, we found that we could not program the VCR to record a different program than the one we were currently watching. To make a long story short and after doing some checking, we were told the following:
1. If one wants to record a different show than what is being watched, one needs a second converter box for the VCR.
2. Unless one has a converter box for their VCR, they also cannot program it to record a show at say, 10:00 p.m. because one is going to be gone at that time, unless they are physically at home to program in that channel on the converter box.
I hope this makes some sense.
