I have 4 analogs in addition to my normal set. No analog means that cheapest 6 buck box x 4? That puts the price a lot higher compared to cable for the analog boxes, and extra 24 just for extra boxes.
Is there any alternative such as a broadband whole house converter? I doubt it but thought I would ask. Also since these are cheap little boxes anyway, it seems avoiding rental would be cheaper but I have not heard of that option.
no unfortunatly there is no "whole house" adaptor....at least not yet. I would be supprised if they dont do something like that, especially for businesses (motel/hotel)
I have heard that they are going to put in a system to allow tv's to connect with no boxes what so ever on a LIMITED connection basis (meaning only the local channels 49 and below) but I have not heard a timeline on that.
I have a TV tuner card in my PC. Is there anyway I can get it to work with Fios without using a remote control to change channels?
First it has to have a QAM tuner. If it does you can get the local SD, local digital (HD), music and PEG channels. All other channels are encrypted and require either an STB or a cable card capable device.
