I didn't realize there were so many FTA HD channels availabe. I no longer feel the need for cable or dish.
Nice product for those of us unable to obtain Cable TV. Works well, nice features and overall qaulity is great. Would buy again from this company.
Simple, ease of use, and powerful.
Easy to use and the reception is great.
I can't give this product a good rating because it became inoperable in less than a month of ownership. The on/off button no longer shuts off the device, and it no longer displays any channels. Its display now consists of a line of lit dashes. It does not accept any input from the remote control device, and other than the on/off switch, there are no other control buttons on the box itself. When it was working, it was a nice converter box. It is small, so it doesn't take up much space. The remote control that comes with it is a universal remote which also gives you TV/DVD/AUX controls. The instruction booklet that comes with the device gives you the codes for various manufacturers. The electronic program guide allows you to see a channel's listing of shows; there is a simple guide and a more detailed one. I found that you had to point the remote directly in front of the device for it to work; it didn't really work well if you were at a right angle to the device. A complaint about converter boxes that I've read is that they run hot, but I didn't find that to be true about the Viore, though the electrical plug was always a bit warm. Initial channel reception was good, and the auto-scan process worked well and quickly. You need an external antenna capable of receiving the digital broadcasts for the device to work properly. I used a Mohu Leaf antenna, and depending on the time of day, I would pull in from 19 to 25 channels in the NY metro area with that antenna; when I tried it with a rabbit-ears antenna, I received much fewer stations. On channels where the signal was strong enough, I'd receive a clear image. On the weaker signal channels, there would be pixelation, which is the annoying thing about digital broadcasts. I think that this is one of those devices that if you get one that works, you're going to be satisfied with your purchase. From what I've since been reading about converter boxes, it doesn't seem as though many of them, no matter what the brand, last for more than a year.
This tiny box not only fixed my reception problems, it als came with a smart universal remote which can adapt to my tv and dvd player.
I've gone through the government-supplied "free" boxes (Apex was just horrendous), then to RCA (kept dropping signal). I have a very good antennae in my attic (Wineguard) with a pre-amp. I found this brand online and thought for this price, okay, why not. Setup was incredibly easy. I am so pleased with the signal transmission with this little unit; I have no pixilation, no dropped signals, no probs! The remote has very nice features, including PIP, and I programmed my TV for use with the remote. I highly recommend this converter box - if you can find it! I got Site-to-Store, and even though they estimated shipment on 10/17, I picked it up today (10/6). Hooray
This little box has some great features with the guide, the previous channel, and pip capabilities. But this box gets really hot. I have stood it up on its side so the bottom of the box can get some air through it to try to cool it down.
I wanted this for a couple of very serviceable (but analog) TVs that I would like to use in odd situations, such as power outages, etc. I found this unit to be easily configurable and it locked in a surprising number of stations with just a set of rabbit ears on a small Sony 13" color TV. As I recall (my memory is fuzzy on this), there were a couple of minor quirks during configuration, but overall, they were insignificant. I'm quite satisfied with this purchase.
It works fine. We haven't really had any problem with it. We get a few less channels but it is from locations in another state. The display (on tv, details of programs) is very small compared to previous converter box. And the remote has buttons in odd places. The display button is on the bottom among a bunch of other buttoms, that we don't use. So I have to look at the remote to find it. Another concern is that the box doesn't have channel buttons only on/off. So if the remote goes bad we won't be able to use the box.
I made the big switch from cable to over the air broadcast TV. I have several TV's with digital tuners built in, but a few older ones that don't so I purchased 2 of these tuners. The build quality on the remote is horrible. The edges are so rough and sharp you feel like you should handle it with gloves on. The worse part though is the quality of the signal. I aligned my antenna and get great reception on my TV's with built-in digital tuners. However at least one main channel (ABC) will not come in on the Viore. The user manual is a mish-mash of poorly translated english sprinkled with typos. I'm taking it back.
When my wife picked this up, the lady at the counter said we'd bring it back, they just don't work. While it's true I had to find and start the channel search function before anything showed up, and had to attach at least a small, passive VHF/UHF antenna we had from the analog TV days before any channels would show up, after that, this little box works fine. It's got all the little features I thought it wouldn't too - onscreen signal strength meter, TV guide for a long ways into the future, etc. Now, it's true the guide is only available on the channel you are currently tuning, but I also got a top-rated box from ebay, which is supposed to have the best guide out there, and it's the same. For the price, and the features, I'd recommend this to anyone. My only concern is whether it will stand the test of time - so many electronics die after a year or two due to poor engineering and/or quality controls on manufacturing. But there aren't many choices for converter boxes these days, and this one is a good value for the money, from my experience so far.
I'm very happy with my purchase of the Viore ATB150V Digital-Analog TV Converter Box. It was easy to set up and easy to use. The low price caught my attention and I read the reviews on Walmart site. I decided to give it a chance. I'm glad I did! It comes with everything you need. The digital TV converter box I had before was a RCA STB7766G1 and it didn't do much of anything (and cost me more money). I haven't had cable for almost a year and the Voire is my second converter box and I'm glad I bought it. It is worth it!
I make videos under the name of Microdac and as such I am always traveling all over the united States in my conversion van. Many times I do work in my van editing my videos and writing my script for the next shoot and I like to have the television in the background as I work. This Viore ATB 150V Digital-Analog Converter box works as advertised. It is excellent. I have used this unit in states from Virginia to Kentucky and I am always pleased at the reception and the clarity of the stations. Thanks to this unit, I can watch the news, Football games, the golf channel and any and all stations that are available. I would absolutely recommend this unit to anyone and everyone who wants to watch the channels available in your area, and, the best of all you may watch FREE TELEVISION analog or digital HD. -microdac-
Easy to install and quick to enjoy the results.
Not only I get HD channels, I now can control what my young kids watch.
This unit gets quite warm (I'm not sure I would quite call it hot, but it gets there) compared to others. It comes with the 3-cord audio/video cable, not a coaxial like most converter boxes do. I found that with the supplied cord, there was a good deal of static in the sound, while it wasn't very noticeable when using my own coax connection. This may not be a universal issue. There is a TV guide programmed in which is definitely better than the one on the RCA box which is the only one that my local Wal-Mart stocks, but it's not super. It will show you the next 3 programs, or 3 hours (not sure which) on your current channel but doesn't give you a view of 5 channels over the next 4 hours or so like another box I have does. There is also a startup delay that I haven't seen in other boxes but I don't feel it's much of an issue. That said, this was the cheapest box I found online and it does the job.
Nice unit but complicated with the remote. Buttons could definitely be bigger along with the text. Has a lot of features and this makes it confusing for my wife to use. I like the features but I do agree with it being complicated on some of the basic ones.
The remote has a volume control that turns down the volume leaving the box , it can also be set up to control your tv like a universal remote . I'm getting 16 different channels with the outdoor antenna ( Channel Master 2016 DIGITAL ADVANTAGE (HDTV / VHF / UHF) Outdoor Antenna ) I mounted in the attic this was a big supprise . I used the on screen signal bar to tune it in for over all good signal .
We got 2 of the other base model boxes from WM (no longer offered) and they were ok but still froze on occasion w decent roof antenna. Got this box for my downstairs area, repositioned roof satellite and no more problems, so unsure if needed to get new box but problem solved. Decent "guide" info option, for some reason "auto" daylight savings time option is showing incorrect time (not compensating for change 1-2 yrs ago in length)-Ill wait 2 weeks and that problem will solve itself. Remote is kind of clunky w odd positioning, at any rate 2 weeks into it does the job for the price. I dont have time to sit all day and watch tv and am trying to give it to the cable monster as much as they gave it to me by dcing all their services one at a time...
