I purchased 2 of these (digital stream dtx9900)boxes from Radio Shack back in late 2008 when I received my two Gov't coupons($20 each after rebate). The one in our living room gets fairly heavy use, and the other in my room gets moderate use. In early/mid 2009 I purchased two more of these(digital stream dtx9900d - updated firmware fix). These two went into two other rooms, and get regular use.

When I got the first two of these, I had no experience with DTV, and was immediately impressed with the quality(using coax output in all cases). I originally chocked it up to the raw power of DTV, assuming that all DTV boxes were this good(I later found out this was not the cases when I tried both RCA and Magnavox boxes). I got many of my local channels, and went from one good analog channel, to two digital channels (three networks - CBS, ABC, Fox - due to sub-channels). In late 2009, I got a clearance "Radio Shack 15-2187" amplified outdoor antenna (badged antenna craft HDX1000), and increased from about 6 channels (which I had managed to tune in by that point with mixed results), to 12 channels (6 stations + 6 sub-channels - most within 20 miles of me).

Overall the device is a pleasure to use, with very little to complain about. The remote is great, including a zoom button for aspect ratio, and the on-screen interface is simple and straightforward. The EPG displays at least 2 days of data based on what my local stations transmit. The channel scan feature allows you to update rather than rescan so that you don't lose your current channels(helpful for me when I take it other places to use), and the edit section allows you to skip channels you don't want to view.

This converter works great and is easy to use. It was even easy to hook up to my antenna and the menu options are great. I was even able to program it into my universal remote control so I can use one control for both tv and converter box (because I don't like to leave it on if I'm not watching tv)
It shipped fast and I have no complaints. I love it!

I have to give this converter box a glowing report. After trying a Zinwell and a RCA converter box--both of which I sent back to the store (Walmart) and online store (Meritline.com) for being cheaply made and without ANY of the features the Digital Stream converter box has. The Digital Stream box has an episode guide that goes 34 episodes into future programing and describes each show and the cast. The remote is universal and has a channel return button and a favorite channel button. The converter box itself has buttons to turn the box on and off (something my old Magnavox box did not have)! So far this box has been wonderful because of the features it has. I really love it!

I originally purchased two of these units for our analog TVs when the switch to digital originally happened. They are actually easier to use than the tuner on the newest TV with a tuner that is both analog and digital. Definitely is something I would recommend!

Item works well and received timely and in the condition stated. This company was a new addition to Amazon.com. I believe it was their first offering. I think they have gotten off on the right foot and have made themselves someone I would return too. Its the ones that make the mistakes that you remember the most; so far so good for them.

Wow, what a great product. This box does everything you could possibly want and more. The comfort and ease of the remote is beyond compare. It has so many great features that other boxes just don't match up. I regret buying one at best buy for $60.00 (before tax) made by insignia. The only thing good about it is the packaging. It is garbage compared to this unit by Digital Stream. I refuse to buy cable or satellite tv because they won't let me purchase the channels that I want only. They make me buy all the garbage that they want me to have. It's a totally rigged game that I refuse to pay for. This box is such a great alternative. The way to change satellite/cable policies, and prices is to refuse to buy it.

I'm giving it only 4 stars because the quality is not that great but it does what it's supposed to do. I'm using it in the basement an needed this in addition to an antenna. I'm able now to pull 29 channels and I'm happy with my purchase.
