Sylvania SDVD7047 7-Inch Portable TV with DVD Player
on August 19, 2012
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.
