As a converter box - this works great and pulled in all the digital channels available for me onto my old tv with just a normal, portable rabbit ears antenna. It's great that it has rf out, av out, component out, and (what seems to be unique to this product) HDMI out.
The user interface for this is not the most intuitive but you can get use to it.
I really like the usb/multimedia feature. I was able to easily play .mp4 and .mkv video files off an usb on it. This is very nice if you have a lot of personal or downloaded video files that you want to watch/share with people on your tv (especially older tvs) without having to do extra work like converting and burning the video files to disc.
It's also nice that you can save recordings to usb (or usb-portable HDD) and then reinsert the usb into your computer/laptop to watch your recordings. The recordings are .mts format and easily played via VLC media player for me. Thus, when I want to - I can fully enjoy the true HD of the digital broadcast recording on my 1080p laptop screen (that my old tv is not capable of). Note digital broadcast recordings are fairly large - about 5 gb for a hour long show. So you want a usb or portable HDD with a good amount of storage. Again, since you can easily take out and reinsert your usb or portable HDD - you can always transfer your recordings to your laptop/computer as well for storage. Note, I formatted my usb to NTSF format - because with this format the shows/recordings are save in a single file; with FAT-32 the shows are broken up into a series of files (each a couple minutes long) as I found out.Read more ›
Not only does this converter provide an excellent digital TV signal for your old analog TV, it functions as a digital recorder and player of your favorite TV shows and other media. The USB port and your memory stick allow a convenient way to enjoy your recorded TV programs and play music, movie, and photo data. The converter seems to be more sensitive than my old one giving me an additional station and providing superior image quality. Use the supplied composite video/audio cable for the best image. Set up was pretty intuitive, which is a good thing since the instruction booklet was sub par. Do keep and read the booklet but use the Quick Installation sheet to get going. Then refer to the booklet and play with the Menu items to learn the finer details of using your box. It does not recognize Daylight Savings Time, so tell it you live in Canada and use Atlantic Time if you live in the Eastern US. You will need a fairly large memory stick if you intend to record much TV. It will allow you to record the program you are watching but apparently not another channel at the same time. It does allow recording your selected shows remotely while your TV is off. Do format your stick using the appropriate menu selection. I had problems recording until I did this. Allowing for a few quirks, this is an excellent piece of equipment especially given the price.
I have just purchased another of these units to replace a converter box(different brand)on another TV. With its recording ability and solid performance as a converter, it was a no brainer.Read more ›
I'll detail my experience with it, using an old TV, a rooftop antenna, and especially, its use with special populations (elders, those with cognitive/perceptual disabilities, children, etc).
I formerly had a very early Sabrent USB stick connected to my laptop that finally went kaput, the HW-150 is its replacement. It also enables me to make use of a very nice TV I have that lacks an ATSC tuner.
Set-up was really easy. There's a bit of a curve involved in learning to use it, but it's actually surprisingly intuitive and after two weeks I (and my thumb) have it down pat. What seems initially tricky is that the buttons on the remote have different functions depending on what mode you're in, but since the options are shown on the screen whenever they differ from the buttons' regular functions, it is pretty easy and becomes second nature surprisingly fast. It's evident that considerable thought has gone into which buttons have been programmed for which additional functions.Read more ›
