If you give your general area perhaps other posters will respond with local shopping tips.
I have two Zenith DTT901 and one DTT900 purchased at Circuit City and Bi-Mart stores in Portland Oregon. Some Radio Shack and Standard TV & Appliance have or had the Zenith. (Some Radio Shacks may have the Digital Stream.) A local Magnolia Audio Video store reports having the Zenith in stock. Some local Circuit City and Radio Shack stores will special order the DTT901 and redeem your coupons now for delivery a few days later. Inquire at the Customer Service counter.
If you don't see a converter box on display, ask for it!
Some Best Buy customers report that they couldn't find the Insignia or Apex, had to ask for them, and only then did a salesman go to retrieve stock from the back room. It's the same way at my neighborhood Fred Meyer store where one lone Philco (a toy-like plastic box) was observed sitting under a HD TV. The actual stock is kept in the back room. A local KMart had a fake mock-up of their Funai-made box (Magnavox, I think) for display purposes but one had to ask for the actual product. The local WalMarts have had the Magnavox and/or RCA.
If local stores have no stock try the online and phone sellers. No need to run from here to there to find converter boxes. Other threads relate good and bad customer experiences with these sellers. Choose your product and then choose your seller.
