When you mention units which "are DVI compatible and converters are  
available for computer monitors" are these the digital TV converters?   
-the ones where the govt rebate card works?   All I've found locally  
have coax outputs plus a RCA jack with (presumably) analog TV video.

Also, there are a number of TV receiver/decoder units which plug into  
a USB 2.0 port, but they are pricy (and the rebate is not applicable).

My interest is not only in saving a relatively recent analog TV, but  
also being able to project it with a (non HD) projector which accepts  
DVI inputs.  Even when I purchase a new digital TV, these applications  
will remain.
