    That was pretty funny. I might start watching YouTube conspiracy videos as a hobby. On the other hand...why encourage these people?

    I love DTV.... I have very basic cable 30 channels, i hooked up my Converter box and wham I have 150 stations including sci fi, vh1 blah blah blah holy cow i think though it is special thru the cable company but still makes my $12 cable bill all seem worth it. lol
    so with this said i would not care if the dtv box were spying on me all they would see is a very happy person.

    On November 5th, 2008 I reply on this thread: Get Your New Digital Converter Box about what I think about those Digital Converter Boxes...

    But after seeing the response on that thread, all I can say now is that everything else must be a hoax too, and I mean everything, everything related to what we can't see...

    If after just 62 years we still have to believe that the - UFO Roswell Incident was just a weather balloon issue, then... We have nothing to worry about... Right?

    Btw, if we're not allowed to believe or imagine of "what if" in the recent "Digital Converter Boxes" conspiracy issues, or the 62 years old "UFO Roswell Incident" conspiracy issues, how come are we supposed to believe or imagine about the other "Over Two thousand Years Old" conspiracy issues?

    2012?

    Just FYI HardwareGeek!

    In electronics, any microphone can be used as an speaker, and any speaker, can be used as a microphone...

    The two main differences between a microphone and an speaker are just the size of the gadget and the quality of the audio input/output...
