OK, I am not buying this, but I read in a discussion group that if a person hooks up a DTV converter backwards, the result will be an analog signal that is broadcast into the home or to any tv within a small distance from the converter.
First it would take some serious modifications to connect it backwards, then I dont thing these converters are actually transmitters.
But I'll remain open minded until this is proved wrong.
I also heard that a DTV converter can be connected to a computer monitor rather than a tv. This one I'll consider a good possibility, IF they make monitors with a VIDEO input, (as in RCA connector). I have not shopped for a monitor for years, so maybe the new ones do have these connectors. My old CRT monitor only has the standard SVGA input connector that if I recall, has 15 pins.
So, maybe there is some truth to this, although an external sound system will be needed for the audio, which I'm sure any stereo receiver or amp will work.
Anyone know any truth to these things?
