I've tried 3 units, the Tivax STB-T9 recommended by Consumer Report, the DTVPAL TR-40CRA, and this Digital Stream recommended by friends.
All 3 boxes converted the digital pictures well. All has the electronic program guide (EPG) but the DTVPAL and Digital Stream were the best.
The Digital Stream would be my top choice if it had a timer for the VCR. It has a very good universal remote(I was able to find the code for my old JC Penny TV), a seperate button for channel signal strength, a built-in transformer and manual On & Up/down channel buttons.
The DTVPal has a timer so you can program it to turn the box on and off for a specific channel to match your VCR timer. The remote is convoluted and non-universal so you can't turn on your TV with this remote. It has an little "brick" transformer, no manual control buttons, a very bright ON LED and a cheap looking plastic box.
The Tivax is built with a metal box instead of plastic and has a built-in transformer but seems to run warmer than the others. Manual On, Up/down channel buttons. Very basic but simple remote. I don't know why Consumer Report gave this unit such a high rating. I bought this unit from Amazon's link Solid Signal which handled the coupons easier than Amazon.
try. What a pleasant surprise. Had to wait awhile on hold but then spoke with a very helpful lady who walked
me through a factory reset. I had limited hopes for this remedy but it worked. My tv is on and sound is fine. I've made myself a note to do this next time it happens. Hate to be a pessimist, but I expect it will. You can also figure out how to
do the reset yourself. Just push 'menu' on the remote - go down 4 to the 'function' screen. Go right to 'Factory Reset' and follow the directions.
She also told me that audio could be tweaked by installing red, yellow, and white audio cables into the back of the box.

Works well & remote is great, just doesn't pick up as many channels as expected. About 20 in my area, but lose signals all the time.Published 11 days ago by Amazon Customer
I recently cut the cord and mounted an antenna on my home. My older model Vizio had an inferior tuner and made it tough for me to dial in to the weaker channels. Read morePublished 1 month ago by L. Meister
