Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

This converter displays the channels names as you switch channels and also displays the name of the program being televised on your screen. The remote control allows you to control the television's power and volume control as well which eliminates the need to use two separate remote controls. Living 30 miles from Salt Lake City, I ran a scan and the digital converter box picked up 38 channels which included all of the local channels plus many others which were clear as a bell. I also purchased a digital indoor antenna from Walmart for around $35.00 because I was worried that I might not be able to pick up any channels being so far out in the country. This product did not disappoint. With the increasing prices of satellite and cable TV, you can save a lot of money by using this product and eliminating your cable/satellite bill.

I was using a satellite company but was not watching much TV. My contract had expired and I was month to month so I decided to purchase two of these, an antenna, and a booster to see if I should disconnect from the satellite TV. I have older TVs and I have had this system about two years. I am on the fringe of the digital signals in my area and my antenna is in my attic (a higher outdoor pole would be better). The picture is clear on clear days and sometimes the signal fluctuates, I have 40-70% signal. I pick up 13 channels but only 7 are visible and maybe 4 of those are pretty consistent in good picture quality. I could pull more channels in but that would require mounting the antenna on a high pole to overcome my terrain. Sometimes the picture freezes or the sound is lost but that is due to a weak signal and all you have to do is turn it off and on again. The controls are easy to use and the menu is clear and quick to navigate. The remote has a good signal. I would recommend this to someone who doesn't want a contract with a cable satellite carrier and doesn't mind making a onetime investment (mine was $250 for two digital boxes, antenna, and a booster# that will pay them back monthly the fees they used to give the carriers #mine was $63+- month)- I have saved $1,262 and counting. Thanks for reading my review.

My 12 year old has this in his room. It picks up main channels, a lot of cooking channels, Alabama Public Television, ABC, NBC, Fox, two local weather only channels, Christian channels, and has a very clear picture. We use an old 25 inch RCA. With this box. We got the $10 antenna to go with the digital box. Sometimes the signal will be weak but can be improved by keeping the antenna close to a window; it seems to do better anyway. If you want tons of channels, get cable or satellite. But if you are on a budget that doesn't include a cable bill but you want to watch tv sometimes, this is an excellent option for you. Inclimate weather will make our satellite go out while my sons tv is still picking up a signal. However, its not perfect in that sometimes it will have a weak signal for no apparent reason but not very often. It's so easy to hook up too! Plug the wire from the box into the back of your tv, plug in the power cord and turn it on with your tv. Turn your tv to channel 2 or 3 or perhaps your TVs auxiliary channel and you will have a picture instantly. The remote will prompt you to push the correct buttons for adding channels by asking if you want it to scan and set your channels. Then sit back and enjoy. I hope my review was helpful. I have recently purchased the $50 antenna to see if he could get more channels and I was able to get a few more.. like he has two Fox, two NBC, and a child's channel. The reception is better and doesn't lose a signal hardley ever. The quality of viewing television is very dependent on your antenna reception.

This converter is NOT for you if you are in a fringe area where you need a large outdoor antenna system. I am 40 miles from the transmitter and this converter can not maintain a constant signal. Using the SAME ANTENNA with a Radio Shack converter poses no problem. This thing is deaf when it comes to receiving a digital UHF TV signal. It constantly drops the signal and inserts the blue block message telling me to adjust the antenna. This problem is nonexistent using the Radio Shack converter. I have been a licensed amateur radio operator since 1976. I am well versed and have a lot of experience in the requirements to receive UHF signals. If you live beyond what is considered as "line of sight" on http://www.antennaweb.org/ then this converter is NOT for you!
