    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 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.

    • Yes and for the better. I don't think it can pickup any signal without one. I always get 0dB when I disconnct my antenna. A great feature they added is the audio and visual antenna gain set up screen. It allows you to hear the signal rise and fall while you adjust the antenna if you can't see the TV. If you can see the screen you will see a dB gain percentage and a sliding bar (like a volume bar). I had tried using an Indoor 8" diameter indoor loop wire attached to a twin lead Balun (matching converter) that slips onto the 75ohm threaded connector. It only picked up 12dB gain in my ground floor. When I added my old outdoor arial antenna with a twin wire (300 ohm) to the same Balun screw terminals as the loop wire, I got 27 dB. With the 12dB I got 4 only channels compared to 27dB with the outdoor antenna. Now I get 25 channels and about half of them are crystal clear at night. There are some channels that never come in. I live right between two major broadcasting locations- 30 miles from both NYC and Philly in Central NJ. I was looking into buying a signal booster or Pre-Amp to get these weak channels when I read this question. There is another nice feature in the station list where you can switch to bypass the bad channels by "skipping" them with the remote. This allows you to skip over them when you're surfing. You can relist them if you want to surf them again without having to run another search for available channels. Another good feature in scan for channels, it lets you scan for additional channels to add on to the already saved channel list. If you scan without it, the original list is wiped off. One more Hint: use the number buttons to select from the list when they show numbers next to features. It's faster than scrolling.

    • Yes, the antenna will be hooked up with the converter box.

    • You will need to use an antenna with the converter to make the converter work.
