4.0 out of 5 stars Sylvania SDVD7047 7-Inch Portable TV with DVD Player
This is an excellent item with lots of great features. The DVD portion works really nice, and the DTV does as well, jsut as long as you have a decent antenna connected to it. The factory-shipped antenna is really useless and receives 0 channels, but using an external Philips DTV antenna we were able to receive 5 channels with great clarity once we adjusted the antenna...

2.0 out of 5 stars Defect ruins this product
Cheap DTV works pretty well. The low resolution display makes things look a bit pixelated but the one defect makes this product useless....

The video adjustments only work in TV mode... while watching a DVD you cannot adjust the screen (brightness, contrast ect...) and the default brightness is set so low that you cannot watch DVD's because the screen is too...

Cheap DTV works pretty well. The low resolution display makes things look a bit pixelated but the one defect makes this product useless....

The video adjustments only work in TV mode... while watching a DVD you cannot adjust the screen (brightness, contrast ect...) and the default brightness is set so low that you cannot watch DVD's because the screen is too dark. Since changes to the setting ONLY affect viewing in TV mode, you are stuck with a device that does not allow the viewing of DVD's.

This, and the fact that the LCD display is of such a low resolution means that this device is really only good for a portable music player as the ability to use SD's abd USB's loaded with MP3's make this a really sweet music player. So back this one goes which is too bad. I could live with the low res screen but not without the ability to watch DVD's.

This is an excellent item with lots of great features. The DVD portion works really nice, and the DTV does as well, jsut as long as you have a decent antenna connected to it. The factory-shipped antenna is really useless and receives 0 channels, but using an external Philips DTV antenna we were able to receive 5 channels with great clarity once we adjusted the antenna position. Although it can be a pain to carry an antenna around, we'd only use the antenna if we take the unit with us camping or for a long road trip. Beware we still haven't gotten the device to pickup any television broadcasts using a direct cable connection in any format. In auto, HRC, IRC, or STD it just can;t decode more than 3 signals from a non-scrambled cable signal that normally shows about 70 channels. This would be an issue if we were using it for that purpose, but we aren't, so it's not a big deal. Now if the battery just lasted a few hours longer, then this would really be an even nicer unit.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a true ATSC tuner, July 26, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sylvania SDVD7047 7-Inch Portable TV with DVD Player (Electronics)
Not a true ATSC tuner. It is a digital monitor with a PAL/NTSC tuner. I purchased this for use in the US, but it doesn't receive any channels digitally. I tried the antenna that came with it and two other antennas of my own. Regular rabbit ears and a newer hdtv digital antenna I am currently using with a converter box on a small kitchen TV that receives all available channels.

In the general setup options on the player and in the user manual (page 20) it asks you to choose which TV setup you have, PAL (which is used in Europe) and NTSC (which is the old analog standard in the USA). The only mention of ATSC is the start up screen saver.

The DVD player works great and the controls are easy to use.

I returned this unit the next day due to the non ATSC tuner issues. It was purchased mainly for TV usage as a replacement for a different TV/DVD player that broke after heavy usage.

this portable tv/dvd player is great. I've been using mostly the TV component. I haven't had a problem with it yet. Though I've only use it in the city. I haven't traveled with it.

3.0 out of 5 stars After Some Effort, It Gets The Job Done, May 8, 2014

This review is from: Sylvania SDVD7047 7-Inch Portable TV with DVD Player (Electronics)
The item arrived with a remote that does not work. It appears the battery is dead. That made going through the setup much more difficult. After considerable effort, I was able to get the setup going and picked up signals from local stations. A higher quality antenna will be a big help in getting strong enough signals to do the job. The video quality of local channels is pretty good. However, the audio is very low. I have hooked up external speakers.

I also played a DVD on the device. Again, without a working remote control that was a bit of a chore. However, the DVD played well and the video looked fine.

-----

On May 19, 2014, I received an e-mail from the vendor inquiring about the remote control issues. I noted that a new battery (just over $6 at Radio Shack) was obtained. Now the remote works. The vendor offered me a refund of $10 for the cost of the battery and my time in correcting the problem. The rebate was processed in less than 24 hours through Amazon.

This review is from: Sylvania SDVD7047 7-Inch Portable TV with DVD Player (Electronics)
it was awful, no sound. missing parts and the way it was made was very trashy. The worse part was sent back because it did not work and they had the nerve to charge me restocking fee of 16.00 will never buy anything eletronic from amazon or it affiliates. Do not have that kind a money for a rip of restocking fee... on item that does not work and had missing parts.. total bull.... so much for my Christmas list from there.
