Which converter box to buy

Our DTV converter box coupons expire on 9/5/2008. There are a metric ton of converter boxes out there. I've already figured that analog pass-through is probably a must, as I doubt our TiVo will understand how to work with a DTV converter box--but aside from that, what are the pros and cons for those of you that have already made the switch to a DTV converter box?

NTIA-Approved & Available

These NTIA-approved CECBs currently are available in retail stores, according to manufacturers and retailers. Consumers should call ahead to retailers to make sure that the boxes are in stock.
