said by IowaCowboy:yes this last round of analog cuts brought the launch of Cisco 170HD DTAs and this is for all of Maine. The Augusta Maine system used the Thompson/Technicolor SD DTA's during the trial for 100% digital but now all DTA launches in 2012-2013 are using the Cisco DTAs that provide HD locals and maybe some expanded basic HD channels such ESPN HD or TNT HD and maybe Fox Business Network HD depends on the system and those three HD channels I mentioned besides the locals are available on the DTA's in Rochester NY.
What I am trying to figure out is if they are giving out the DTA converters yet. I want to install it so I don't have to come up when the time comes. I am without a car right now (needs extensive repairs) so the only way I can go to grandma's house is in those wonderfully expensive rental cars. I am up in Maine right now so I can do it. I don't want to install a full featured STB for the reasons stated in the original post, I just want to install a basic DTA.
