My sister-in-law reported that their Sony Bravia TV had lost its digital tuner - that it just stopped working one day and that they really didn't have any live TV capability. They only ever used an antenna for OTA TV as that's all they ever wanted.
Since they were hosting Thanksgiving, I volunteered the use of a set-top converter and brought over an old Magnavox box I'd bought when the things first came out. My brother in-law was quite surprised at how decent the picture was - it wasn't HD, but we were able to keep an eye on the football games and so forth all afternoon.
He had an old converter for a a long-gone tube set, but had lost the remote - AND he was unaware of the red-white-yellow connectors for a Video input.
