Newbee here who knows nothing about TV. I'm asking a question, I hope that it is within forum rules. If not, I apologize, please delete.
I wonder if it is possible to buy an aftermarket HD box to replace my FIOS non-HD box. I pay for HD service, but the idea of paying an additional $21 per month for the HD set top box for the next 30 years or so to access the HD content for which I am already paying has gotten right up my nose. Some sort of patching between the FIOS box and an aftermarket box?
I also have a PC hooked up to my TV, if some sort of PC card is an option.
I don't want to record, I don't need multiroom service, all I want to do is have access to the content for which I am being charged each month. Needless to say, I was quite surprised by the install guy when he told me that I did not have HD because my set top box was not an HD model and that to get one would cost so much money. If I don't find solution I'll end up dropping FIOS.
Thanks for any help or suggestions.
