Phoenix1, Electronic devices need to be approved by the U.S. government before they are "out". I dont think that TR-40/DTVPAL will make the June ship date.
I have figured out what I am going to get that Channel Master CM-7000 for the S-Video and an Echostar/Sling Media TR-40 to use up the other coupon. I dont currently need this hardware but for about $40.00 (includes sh.) for both the purchase is cheap enough for me.
With my coupon expiring in just a few days- I was able to pre-order the
Apex DT250 from GlobalApex DT250 Digital Converter Box
which comes in within a week or two to be shipped.
The specs say it has S video and analog pass thru-- we'll see.
Going to switch with a friend later to get the Echostar for my second unit.
