I am sure that some people did know what you were meaning but others don't understand anything about this conversion.

Analog PassThru will not be any good after February 17, 2009 for people who will no longer have any analog "full power" television stations, including most of the major network affiliates and large independent stations, will convert to digital-only
However, Analog PassThru will be needed by those people who have will have both digital and analog
(most Class A, Low Power TV, and TV Translator stations will not convert to digital next February)
Analog PassThru will also be needed by remote areas with no digital
next February as some of these most Class A, Low Power TV, and TV Translator stations will convert to digital later in two to three years if not longer.
Yes, I know this is a much longer reply and still some people will not know what type of television stations serve them and if they need it or not.
The bottom line is if you don't need it a Digital Only will loose less signal than one with PassThru and that is why most of the original CECB's didn't have it.
It wasn't until these Class A, Low Power TV, and TV Translator stations raised their concerns about the need for PassThu because 80% of stations fit into this category.
