Portable OTA Digital Converter Box

I've heard some people mention that they won't be able to watch TV on their smaller 12v type televisions. I found this recent video that tells you how to convert your 120v OTA digital tuner into a 12v portable unit. Interesting.....

You don't even need to do that. Some converter box models use external wall-wart type power supplies, in which case you can directly power them from a 12V supply with an appropriate adapter cord.

That mod may not work on all models with built in power supplies.
It will work only on models whose power supply makes only 12V, which is regulated to the logic power elsewhere. Some models have a PSU which directly make the logic power voltages.
