The HiRez7 also works with most cable hook ups, and its built-in stereo speakers offer great sound.

With the HiRez7, you can stay mobile for up to 120 minutes using the included Li-Ion rechargeable batteries. If you're on a road trip, you can conserve your TV's batteries by using the 12-volt car power adapter; if you're spending a day around the house, you can use the home power adapter and save battery power. A screen saver option also helps you extend battery life.

Another option is the Tivax HiRez7-DS Docking Station (sold separately), which gives you added mobility and extended playtime. The docking station accepts either 8 AA or 2 Li-Ion batteries and recharges the TV's batteries. Even when there's no power outlet nearby, you can connect your TV to the docking station for up to 150 minutes of extra playtime. The docking station also features speakers for enhanced audio.

There's a built-in SD/MS/MMC card reader for even more entertainment options, and you can also use the TV as a large photo viewer to share your digital pictures with friends and family.

Just received my Tivax RiRex7 7 Inch Digital TV from Amazon yesterday, and I am delighted with this purchase!
I was looking for just the right portable digital TV to have on hand during our hurricane season in Florida.
This was the only portable TV that I found that in addition to the rechargable Li-on batteries, also uses regular alkaline batteries. When the electricity goes out, having an alternative to rechargable batteries is a must! With the supplied antenna, and using battery power, I was able to pick up 17 digital channels! The color and picture quality are better than I anticipated. For the many features that this Tivax portable TV offers, it is a great value for the money, and well worth waiting for. The only thing missing is the "docking station" that houses the alternative alkaline batteries. Hopefully, Amazon will be offering this soon!

PROS: 1) One more, low-tier, portable TV on the market that one can chose from. 2) Setup allows for image Rotation. This means that the TV can be viewed (I tried it) even if it is turned up-side-down but I am not sure as to when this functionality can be used! 3) The color system includes PAL (analog reception in Europe), helpful to take along if you travel to that continent.

CONS: This product was rushed to market. 1) It has two buttons: Setup (Bright, Contrast, Color, Rotation, Color System, Aspect) and Menu (Auto Search, CH Setup, CC Setup, EAS, Parental Control, System Setup, Program List, EPG, Audio and Mute) that should have been combined into a SINGLE Navigation button. As it is now, the hardware, firmware and programming are confusing. The CH+, CH-, VOL+ and VOL- buttons besides changing channels and sound volume, are also used for navigation in submenus of the Setup and Menu buttons. They are also noisy, hard to push and must be press 3-4 times in order to advance to the next menu or function. They are ergonomically in the wrong places that logically make no sense.

2) Because of the bad navigation design and low quality components, the unit has a dedicated "Exit" button to get out of the submenus so that the buttons CH+, CH-, VOL+ and VOL- can be used for channel selection and volume change otherwise they will not function. As a result, some users have problems with the operation and have express their frustration, see other reviews, saying that the owner's manual is worthless. The design of this product is poor and should not have been rushed to market.

3) This TV includes two batteries of different sizes and both are required in order to operate when not connected to AC (house) or DC (car) current.

OK, so, the majority of the bad reviews on here - you can pretty much ignore them. Many are simply shouting their ignorance loudly.

Added features of USB host & SD card slots - VERY nice features.
Docking station is required for AA battery use - I have one, it works great!
Set requires two battery packs - they are different sizes and only fit in one way.
Docking station can recharge a second set of the battery packs in addition to housing the AA batteries - how cool is that?

This is an ATSC TV. It picks up digital broadcasts - most of which are in the UHF frequencies. Many stations still use their old VHF channel number as part of their logo, but are now actually broadcasting in UHF frequencies. This TV (and others like it) will show those stations on the channel (frequency) that they are actually broadcasting on. Example, my local ABC affiliate is Channel 7. Their ATSC broadcast is on channel 20. This TV finds their broadcast on channel 20.

A few words about NTSC vs ATSC reception...
On old NTSC portable TVs if you sort-of received part of a signal, with some sound, you were able to watch TV.
On new ATSC portable TVs you must have a moderate to GOOD signal in order to receive -anything-.

So, a 6" antenna isn't likely to cut it for many stations -unless- you're smarter than the antenna.
The antenna that these units ship with is a magnetic mount whip - the basic idea is that you put it on the roof of a car. The metal roof then acts as a ground plain - and helps the signal. That said, you're not going to get much luck trying to drive and receive an ATSC signal - for that explanation you'll have to do more research than this.

To outsmart the antenna there are 3 options.

This purchase was a total waste of good money. As one reviewer noted, it has the worst instruction manual I have ever seen. It does not even mention the operation of, or how to insert the re-chargable batteries. They don't tell you when you buy it that you can't use regular alkaline batteries unless you have the docking station. The docking station doesn't even go on sale until November. I too live in Florida, and was counting on this TV to use with regular batteries when the power goes out. So much for this hurricane season. I also had to place it in about 5 different spots before it picked up any channels. I was extremely disappointed with this TV and would not recomend it.
