We dropped our cable and bought this box in the store for our old analog TV. It searches for signals, converts them to digital, and works just as it should. People will run into antenna issues but that is not caused by this converter. We are still searching for proper antenna choice and placement to get all the channels available and will likely just have to put a large one in the attic or on the roof. Regarding the converter shutting down after four hours, that is a feature that can be changed. In the menu under settings is a choice for the shut-off timer. You can choose 4, 8, or 12 hour shut-off to conserve energy or turn the shut-off feature completely off and never be bothered by it again. In fact, the message that pops up on the screen telling you it shut down also tells you to go to settings to change the feature, if desired.

I think this is a good product. I bought 40 boxes for my facility when the transition happened a few years ago. Of the 40, 30 are still running. The other 10 are due to residents carelessness. I like the fact that you can control your tv's power and volume only, reducing the potential for resident tampering with settings. It has big buttons, good for seniors. The menu is easy to follow. The drawback is the price. At $60 and without a $40 coupon, it's bad for seniors. I've also bought 10 AccessHD boxes. These are total garbage. They overheat, then don't work within 6 months. The customer service was nowhere to be found. Avoid AccessHD.

The RCA 800 dtv converter box is no longer in production. Mine stopped working after a couple of years and I went to their customer service website like the instruction manual recommends to look for replacement parts but this item is no longer available. I would be wary of buying a product that is no longer in production, the quality degrades over time being stored in a warehouse and getting old. Don't pay full price.

easy to set up and isnt horrible to look at, does what its advertised to do.....only time will tell if its a good option for a long period of time. I would suggest people get a better cable to go from the converter to the TV....the screw on type provides a better connection and eliminates the loose connection that exists with the push on connector. I find that my picture gets snowy from time to time because the cable isnt on there good enough.

My local Walmart only offers this one type now, so I was forced to buy this one when our Zenith one accidently dropped and broke. Zenith one was great, this RCA one is a piece of junk. Both placed in exact same spot with exact same antenae, this one does not get ABC or CBS like Zenith one did. Even other stations are hard to get in. This one also has a "feature" that if you are watching same channel for 4 hours it pops on a message that says due to inactivity it will now save power and shut off. This thing even cost $12 more! And to add insult to injury, Walmart doesnt even carry the Zenith one online anymore.

I enjoyed this converter box at first, then when it was a thunderstorm with lightening, it would go dead. Then a day or two later it would work fine. This went on for a few months and then it finally died completely. A friend told me that this product MUST be unplugged during any kind of electrical storm. I wasnt always at home to do this. But overall, this box worked well, and lasted me a little over a year.

This is the cheapest converter box that I've ever owned. I ended up having to return it to the store because it broke after just TWO weeks. Yes, you read that correctly. The very first converter box that I owned, back in June of 2009 when the switch to digital happened, lasted two years. Why these things can't last a lifetime I don't know, but I was so frustrated with the whole experience that I finally got cable, which I highly recommend to people who have also experienced difficulty with converter boxes. This one's remote didn't even have a menu option that displayed a schedule of shows or the the time of day. It's a cheap, worthless product that shouldn't be on the market.
