Another hope(post coupons) is that cheaper boxes will finally start having features that were previously banned by coupon rules(Dolby outputs, HD outputs, etc.) but IMO the converter box market is basically dead as it is. I'm guessing they'll slowly die and no company will bother spending any money on developing a box that very few people will be interested in
(AVS'ers aside). Canadian boxes may hold out hope though, if they don't ban certain features people near the boarder may
have a chance of getting a newer designed better featured box, who knows.
Hey thanks Mosquito for your support during the CECB program. Your posts have always been insightful and your lack of self promotion has always been to the highest standards(almost too high since I bet very few people know you even offered the boxes). It seems the only way someone might know you've ran a site that sold CECBs was if someone else brought it up. It's been nice ride, thanks
