I'm just waiting on my coupon so I can get a 12v ATSC/NTSC box to go with my AC/DC analog TV.
If you have a laptop, you may want to consider a usb tuner based on the latest XCV5000 tuner chip. It claims a 5 dB noise figure, and generally out performs my 1991 era Panasonic Gaoo analog TV. My Elgato EyeTV hybrid tunes both NTSC and ATSC over the air, as well as ClearQAM cable channels. I believe Hauppauge has recently released their 950C model USB tuner based on the same chip. You should be able to get one for under $90. A small laptop with a usb tuner makes a handy portable TV. (Previous versions claimed a 6dB NF, which is still pretty good for a consumer tuner.)

no connection with Elgato, Hauppauge, or XCeive.
