Dear Minister Moore,
Following up regarding my digital to analogue converter box search.
After unsuccessfully scouring electronics stores across the Greater Toronto Area for an in-stock box, I finally found one last month while killing time in Napanee, Ontario. Good show, Napanee! Here’s a link to the unit available at The Source:
I’ve never heard of Zinwell and $89.99 plus HST wasn’t exactly cheap, but I’m glad to finally have one.
Upon returning to my flat in Toronto I excitedly (ya, I know) attached my trusty rabbit ears to the box and TV and set it to scan for digital signals:
CBLT-DT (CBC), CFTO HD (CTV) , CIII- DT (Global), OMNI 2, City HD and OMNI 1 tune well, though I have to move the antennae each time I change the channel. The CKXT-DT (SunTV) signal is weak and barely watchable. WKBW-HD from the United States appears on the channel scan but is not strong enough to display.
An added perk of the converter box is that I now have a remote for my TV. I also have the option of Closed Captioning.
Curious when TVO will be switching to digital.
