I live in the SF Bay Area, around 20 miles south of SF, and analog TV reception is tough here, due to all the hills. I've heard that HDTV reception is much better. I'd love buy an HDTV TV and just skip analog entirely, but I've found that I can't live without my ShowStopper (I'm guessing I'm not the only one). A seemingly appealing alternative would be to buy an HDTV set-top box (e.g., RCA DTC-100, Toshiba DST3000, etc.), and have it down-convert the digital channels to NTSC, thus producing a much better picture that I could still record on my SS. I'm worried I'd lose all the SS conveniences, though. Does anyone know if there is a way to get a SS to control an HDTV receiver, so it will choose the right HD channel when I ask it to record a program from the channel guide?
