Oh I know the HDTV can convert digital, we got the boxes BEFORE we got this TV. Our 2 other TVs are old. One of them I bought in 1981.

The back of the satellite box does not have an antenna in. DH says to get the satellite signal to the TV in the guest room we need to use NTSC because of the distance. That TV does have component and composite inputs but it's 50 feet away. He thinks there will be too much signal loss.

Unless it's okay to run a composite line 50 feet? It's probably more like 38 but I don't think they make them to odd lengths.

Otherwise we're looking at one of these:

Not the greatest solution but there ya go. We don't want to pay for another satellite box when that TV gets watched so seldom.
