    Default DTV converter boxes

    About 4 years ago I purchased a pair of Zenith digital to analog converter boxes, because I had only analog TV sets then and used a pair of the $40 coupons from the government to buy them new, the $16 purchase price each was worth it then. I was packing the boxes up to take to Goodwill today along with my only remaining analog TV set, and thought I would check Ebay to see if the boxes were worth anything. Much to my surprise there are a lot of them for sale there. Is there any other use for these converter boxes aside from the intended purpose?

    I didn't plan to do much of anything today, but by noon I was almost half done.

    Monitor stand. Too light for a doorstop.

    I got 6 of them. One got watered like a plant. Two are in use. Three are still in boxes.

    I gave mine to our local Hospice Thrift Shop along with the analog TV. They both had very few hours of use since they'd been in our RV, and I made a note about that and attached it to them.

    I don't know of any other uses for them.

    If you need another one I'd suggest getting it shipped to you. When I went to get a new one I came home with a new digital TV instead.
