    I have a feeling these stories will be common in the near future:

    Man shoots television after DTV tantrum

    A Missouri man is charged with unlawful use of a firearm, after peppering his TV with bullets.

    Police responded to a home in Joplin Wednesday after reports of shots being fired inside.

    The 70 year old homeowner was angry that he had lost his cable, and was unable to get his new DTV converter to work properly.

    After a brief standoff, the man was taken into custody. His wife told officers the suspect had been drinking.

    (Copywrite 2009 NBC. All rights reserved.)

    Wow, the converter boxes are kind of a pain at first (I'm way out on the edge of the antenna area, outside of the suburbs) but I wouldn't shoot at my TV! It's unlawful!
