Wow, this converter is Great for older analog TV. Live in Las Vegas, can get about 40 channels free, english and spanish, but, you need to buy antenna, not included. Simple indoor antenna should do, bought one at Best Buy for $11.00. Important, Be sure tv is set on AIR not cable. Program called WIZARD helps you connect. Signal comes through antenna to converter to tv, then set the channels with magnovox remote. Read the instructions, otherwise, you'll probably end up returning it.
This product is really great, the picture on the tv is excellent. The stations come in very clear.
impossible to replace the remote from Magnavox !
Price was excellent!!! $32 + free shipping versus $54 at the store for an RCA that I didn't really like and returned. I had some issues with Walmart regarding the shipping but the product was perfect!!!
I'm a techy & decided to lower expenses for a while. Haven't been without cable for over 25 years! Used a friends converter in my new home. Except for missing my beloved USA shows, which I now access online after they air, this converter fits the bill. Unfortunately it does not have a built in guide channel , as my friends does, & the promised RF connections don't seem to be on this unit. Have XP Pro Media Edition on my PC,as well as special graphics card, so I have a built in huge DVR for free. I can also access my NetFlix, Hulu & Blockbuster on my TV. So goodbye overdemanding cable providers. This is a great buy, at a great price!
i read a lot of reviews and people had said that you get what you pay for. this product was only $30 and i didn't have to buy a new antannae. i have no problems getting all the channels this converter is suppose to pick up and it comes in clear.
Finally cut the cable from Comcast because I was able to get this digital converter box and a decent antenna. I will advise any one who wants to cut the cord to get this box or the RCA, I got both and I got the RCA flat antenna for 30.00 its the one that has the amplifier. I got more channels than I expected and they came in really clear. Don't scrimp on the antenna. This box ix good but the RCA box is better, both work so I am happy. Very easy to install and get working.
Great product! Great price!!
Can't complain about the pricing, a very good product compared to the rca one that I also have. I love it!!! Would purchase another one if I needed to.
Wow... We've been on cable since the early 90's and never gave a thought to "over the air" programming in all these years. We're from back in the "2-7-10 and sometimes 4" television days where you had to hold your left leg up, your right arm out and a cone of aluminum foil wrapped around your head and shoulders just to get a fuzzy channel.
Times sure have changed! With cable costs rising over the years, we've been looking for alternatives and realized that 90% of the programming we watch is available on our local channels. We paired this unit with a Mohu Leaf and now that a few weeks have gone by... GOODBYE $200 a month cable bill!!!
In fact, we were so impressed with the sheer number of channels available in our area (and the quality is every bit as good if not better than cable), that we ordered another one of these for our guest bedroom.
We thought our old TV's were obsolete and that we HAD to stay on cable to continue receiving programming. Not with this unit! Our old TV's now have many, many years of useful life in them. Great deal on these units, as well as the antennas, and they will pay for themselves in just a few months! Wow...
If you purchase this product .... be sure to have it hooked up correctly the first time you scan for channels !!i It does not give you a second chance. I called the help line only to be told I need a different antenna. they refused to reset the box even after I explained I had the antenna hooked up incorrectly !!! I returned it to the store and purchased the one they had in stock (RCA)
Hooked it up and in a matter of 5 minutes had my TV up and running !!
Works well, produces good pictures. Comes with remote.
Purchased 2 earlier Magnavox converters (model TB100MW9, looks identical to the TB110MW9). On one the remote never would work, the other the remote died at about 2 years (first the Channel Up button stopped working, then finally the Power button would not work). Without the remotes the box is useless.
Not a good value unless you like replacing the Magnavox converters about every 2 years or less
ordered this product and when I received it there was no remote. After going through the run around of having to call 5 different 800 numbers and them wanting to charge me for a remote was told it don't come with one. would never recommend this product to anyone cause you can't even turn it on without a remote. It is useless and a waste of money if you don't get a remote with it.
This product will access electronic programing and has an alternate channel button. The unit shuts off completly when turned off.
It's nice to use a product that will eliminate a cable bill. This is my second converter box from Magnavox and I am extremely satisfied with these products.
Pros: Clear picture, economical, can get program descriptions and which shows are coming up
Cons: Need remote (included) to operate (there are no power or channel buttons on the box), a bit slow, not as technologically advanced
Tips: Try to use a good antenna with it. I have a zenith converter box (high quality) and used it with a philips antenna (not as high quality). Used the magnavox converter box (not as high quality) with a radio shack antenna (high quality) and it works better.
Would still recommend based on price.
This product really works. Easy to setup. Now I can watch more than 15 channels. I am very pleased with this product.
This converter works as advertised. The price was / is unbeatable.
I've used other boxes but I like this one much better. The tuner seems to be better than others as it tends to receive more channels and have a stronger signal from those channels.
