Digital to Analog Converter... suggestions

We have the WEGA Sony LCD television in our AS. The TV is analog (can't get any reception plus looked it up on Sony website to verify it is analog only). It works fine so I'd rather not replace it. Any recommendations for a converter box location and recommended product? Thanks for any help.

We've got a converter for the TV in the camping cabin. It was just the basic model from WallyWorld, and it works well. It is also quite small, so you might be able to hide it in a small corner.

(We no longer have it in the cabin, though. Some slob swiped the remote for the TV, and, not noticing, I unplugged both TV and converter. Now I can turn on the TV manually, but can't turn the RV to the required channel 3 without the remote!)

Took mine out and replaced with a 26" Vizio from Costco for $230. Figured that the convertors were $30 and wanted to add HDMI inputs for Apple TV. Plus widescreen format. The new Vizio is thinner and lighter and 1080P.

If you do replace then you'll never get the power adapter out from behind the wall. Had to cut the cable and leave it back there.

Just buy one of those generic remotes for the Sony. They work fine.
