Wrong place. We don't sell anything, only try to give advice. The DTA connects an old analog tv to digital cable.

Wizard - fred:

I'm sorry my question was so confusing. I thought the title made it clear that I was looking for information, not to buy something from this website. I've been fighting too many battles with my computer in the last few days and it's made me crazy and stupid.

I just wanted to ask if anybody knew where I could buy a Motorola DTA100 digital adapter. Google had an entry that indicated the question had been asked here several times, but when I looked at this website I couldn't figure out any way to find the questions, let alone the answers. Every search I tried was a dismal failure.

Anyhow, I finally have the answer, found by asking Motorola directly: MOTOROLA DOES NOT SELL THEIR SET-TOP ADAPTERS ON THE RETAIL MARKET. The only adapters you'll be able to find to *buy* will be second-hand ones that somehow were never returned to the cable/dish/whatever company. There is no way to escape renting the stupid machines forever.

Buy a new TV with the proper tuner. Test a HDTV set by scanning for all available channels. The channel numbers may not be the same as published. Depends on the cable company and their decoder box. You will get the non premium channels.

What is needed is a device with a QAM tuner. Search for QAM leads you to Amazon and Cisco RNG 100 and on to Ebay. $10 - 75.

now that sounds promising. I haven't had time today to go looking for a QAM tuner and find out what it means in layman's language but the price (especially the low end of the range) sounds better than $2 a month per adapter forever. (I have a whole lot of TV's...old, small, analog, but dear to my heart nevertheless).

The site is sending me emails demanding that I select a Best Answer. I don't think I should select a best answer until my question is resolved. I went to Amazon looking for a device with QAM and it appears that everything is just a card. I'm not about to take apart any device to replace a card, so I need to delve more deeply into this whole problem. In the meantime, I have other problems I'm working on that are more urgent.

Thanks for your help so far, wizard-fred.
