Chuck, Thanks for leading me towards the right converter box. Who would have thunk there was a 12 volter on the market.

Not to hijack the thread, still about a TV converter box dilemma; I was having a problem getting our wonderful government to authorize a coupon for me.

I have a mailbox at the marina office and was attempting to use that as my ... mailing address! Well, the gov kept denying me a coupon saying it was a business address. I would appeal and (progressively more sarcastic and berating with each submission) would try and explain that it was the marina office where I have and live aboard my boat ...blah blah blah. DENIED! ... ARGGGGGGGGGGGg ... and then an epiphany - I asked the office for the physical address of this marina dock. Used that, along with my slip number as the apartment #, and clicked a little box that said I can't receive mail at my physical address. Punched in the mailing address (the one that was denied previously), and AHHA!!!! Approved! D'oh!
