I have a government program digital adapter, should I ever be obliged to get reception from an antenna. All my TV's are older, and guess what, Roku. THEY'RE GOING TO STAY THAT WAY.
Half the people I know who HAVE Roku's specifically want nothing to do with the fancier aspects of the digital age; none of that Cable TV, none of that AT&T, none of that NOTHING. Give us a 20 year old TV, public TV, and antenna, and a Roku; , and we're all as happy as clams. Want to keep us for customers, KEEP ANALOG OUTPUT!
You must have clean fallen off Planet Earth.
If you are using a Roku then you are using one of those fancy aspects of the digital age. Also, if you ever buy a new TV it will be digital and most probably HD at no lower than 720p resolution.
I really dumped on Roku when it was revealed that the analog output was completely dropped mainly because of the audio but that ship has sailed and Roku will, almost assuredly, not be producing any devices with analog output of any sort in the future.
Also almost no new set top boxes will have any analog outputs in the future. Once the current in production stock is sent to retail and sold then there will be no more analog systems produced.
You can resist the digital transition, I know I did, all you want but that will not stop the progression. To me analog audio sounds better and analog high definition looks more real but the difference is not much and definitely not going to prevent the industry from moving on to 100% digital.
And, actually, not moving toward digital, and HD for that matter, is more indicative of someone that has "clean fallen off Planet Earth" than eliminating analog output could ever be even as much as I would prefer analog audio continues.
