Beyond TV and the Digital Transition
Dear Beyond TV User,
We want to remind you that on June 12, 2009 all full-power broadcast television stations in the United States will no longer be broadcasting on analog airwaves and will begin broadcasting only in digital. (More info at www.dtv.gov)
With that said, if you are currently using an analog antenna you have a couple of alternatives to keep your Beyond TV working.
1) Continue using your antenna to record, but you will now be recording over-the-air digital TV. You will need a digital converter box and an USB-Uirt IR Blaster in order to use your existing analog tuner. (Here's a step-by-step article on setting up a digital converter box with Beyond TV.)
2) Switch from using an antenna to something like cable or satellite in Beyond TV. (Additional accessories may be required depending on the service you purchase.)
3) Purchase and install an HD TV tuner card.
If you have any questions please visit our support center.
Please discuss this more in the following thread.
