Q: Will the government help?
A: Every household is eligible for two $40 coupons for converter boxes. You may request coupons by calling (888) DTV-2009 or visiting www.dtv2009.gov. Money for the coupon program has run out but is likely to get new funding with last week's extension of the switch over.
Q: What about DVDs, video games and other devices?
A: Game consoles, DVD players and VCRs that already work with your analog TV will work with your old TV after the transition.
