Kinda amusing since the DTVPal was so highly anticipated it developed a
cult-like following, but the Zenith was among the first offered. From
what I understand, the Insignia sold at Best Buy is essentially the same
as the Zenith.

No, I'm quite certain that neither of them are available at any Circuit
City within 80 miles. However, the web site for H.H.Gregg claims their
local store has the DTT901 in stock, so I'll check with them.

We have a couple of them and the manuals state that if you want to get a
universal remote, be sure it has codes for LG and Zenith. I'm pretty sure
both the Zenith and Insignia convertors are made by LG.
