Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm in the process of doing the same thing and there is something important to note with digital converter boxes.From what I could find, your Digital Stream converter box will NOT simply convert the signal and pass it through. It does not pass the signal through like a VCR. This is very important because, that means you can't hook your DVR up to the converter box and simply expect your DVR to tune the channels. You would have to tune...
Before I attempted this repair, I called a local mirror and glass shop. They recommended using RTV Silicone. It can be purchased at an auto supply store. It is typically used to bond parts in engines and can withstand very high heat. I bought the tube below for approx $5.00 It is an EXCELLENT substance to work with.

However, I've tried to install Media Portal on one of my own machines, but I could never get it to tune channels or get any signal. Maybe it's because it...
