Is there a radio to receive DTV audio?

Posting for a friend:

"I own a Sony ICF-C113V bedside clock-radio that receives television signals from the soon to be obsolete VHF channels (2-13). Does anyone know if there is a clock-radio solution on the market yet that receives the audio portion of the DTV television signals in a clock-radio footprint? I have an iHome which I use as my primary clock-radio for alarms and music (iPod), but would still like the option to listen to television periodically."

Is it broken?

Does the DTV box need to be returned? We've got the DTV converter box. We've got channels that have switched and channels that have not. So the DTV box gets turned on and off. Here's the thing, when switching on it is taking 4 or 5 times of off/on sequences before it finally goes.

Standalone or vendor lock-in?

What's the deal with DVRs in America in 2009? Can I buy one off the shelf and take it home and hook it to the cable and use it successfully like a digital VCR or am I "supposed" to get one from my cable provider and get billed a monthly fee for some program-guide service I do not want?

Can I get a coupon for a digital tv converter box?

I applied for 2 of the digital converter box coupons the US government was handing out. I never received them. They have my info and know that I applied for the max and can't apply for more. I would like to have a coupon to subsidize a converter purchase. Am I out of luck?
