Re the digital TV converter -- you are right, I never signed up for one, but my friend Brian LaGrave stopped by my office earlier this morning on his way to visit a customer and he gave me one unopened in its original box -- I'll report back on ho wit works as soon as I find a moment to try it out (I need to get an antenna first) Also I LOVE the idea of using it on a Telepresense robot

You might want to have some fun with a "flying spot scanner". I thought that they were just the nuts when I was a teen! It's a natural for analog video. Yea, I'm a little off topic, but I'm easily distracted.

I didn't realise that anything-to-VHF converters were still so readily available. I'd probably get more fun out of taking one out of a dead VCR, but then I'm a masochist... :-)
