ANALOG PASS-THROUGH FEATURE
Federal law requires that all “full-power” television stations must end analog
broadcasts after February 17, 2009, but this does not include “low-power” TV
stations (such as “low-power” or “community” stations of very restricted range
(LPTV), “Class A” stations, and “translator” or “booster” stations).
These stations may continue to broadcast in analog after the February 17,
2009, digital conversion deadline for full-power television stations.
This converter box has a feature called “Analog Pass-Through,” which
allows your analog TV to continue to tune the analog low-power stations.
Simply put, to receive analog stations, turn off the box; the analog signal will
"pass-through" the box to be tuned in the TV. To enjoy the digital stations,
tune them through the converter box as explained in this operating guide.
NOTE: Online resources with low-power TV information include:
www.dtvtransition.org/lowpower, https://www.dtv2009.gov/lowpower/, and
www.dtv.gov. For a map and list of low-power stations by state, please visit
www.ntia.doc.gov/dtvcoupon/LPTVmap.html

FCC DIGITAL TV TRANSITION NOTICE
16
This device contains a digital television tuner so it can receive free,
over-the-air DTV broadcasts. After February 17, 2009, a television receiver
with only an analog broadcast tuner will require a converter box to receive
full-power over-the-air broadcasts with an antenna because of the Nation’s
transition to digital broadcasting. Analog-only TVs should continue to work as
before to receive analog low-power, Class A or translator television stations
and with cable and satellite TV services, gaming consoles, VCRs,
DVD players and similar products. Information about the DTV transition is
available at www.DTV.gov or from this manufacturer at 1-877-993-6484.
For information about the government’s digital-to-analog converter box coupon
program, contact www.dtv2009.gov or call 1-888-DTV-2009.
