    Do the T3A operate on 12-volt DC and if so does it come with a 12-volt power cord? I don’t see that among the features.

    Does the Artec T3 A DTV Converter qualify for the DTV $40.00
    coupon offer? If it does which distributor(s) accept the coupon? Do any of the 12 volt DTV Converter Boxes qualify, and if so who? THANKs
