CECB's are currently allmost free thanks to the feds
and are a DTV tuner + the unwanted analog converter
now never have taken one apart I wondered if the two bits
could be separated to get a free DTV tuner and MAYBE even trick HD out of it
as in is it a tuner chip or board feeding a converter chip/board in some of the boxes
or is the whole thing done in one chip/board
and if it is possible rewire or add bits/connectors to get the tuner data out
I LIKE FREE OR CHEAP and thinking outside the box
and donot like the throw money at it idea
my sony tv came from craigs list and the sony a/v 5.1 amp from a dumpster
the speakers, warfdales and A/R's from yard sales and all work fine!!!!
so I have less then the cost of a new samsung tuner in the WHOLE SYSTEM
