ATSC Digital to Analog Converter Box
Quick and Easy Setup
The ZAT-970A will have you going digital in minutes. Connect your antenna to the device, connect to your television (via RF or RCA connection), and power everything on. You'll be led through a quick setup for language and time zone, then the ZAT-970A will automatically scan for available channels.
For your convenience, the unit features an on-screen trilingual (English, French and Spanish) menu display, and also allows you to add, skip, or set favorite channels to customize your programming options. For the few remaining low-power analog stations in your area (if any remain at all), an analog pass-through is also provided.
The low-profile ZAT-970A is just 175 x 135 x 33 millimeters, and weighs less than a pound.
Two Connection Options
For televisions with a simple RF antenna input, you'll connect to the television and select either channel three or four on the TV for the ZAT-970A. If your television has RCA audio/video inputs, you're in luck, and can enjoy a better picture and stereo audio connection.
This set-top box is fully ATSC and MPEG-2 Digital compliant, receiving RF channels 2 through 69, and supporting all 18 ATSC broadcast formats, complete with ATSC Dolby AC-3 audio decoding. Translation? You'll be able to enjoy any standard digital broadcast, as standardized by the FCC. Closed captioning and the Emergency Alert System are also both supported.
Selectable Aspect Ratio
Select your picture aspect ratio for either 4:3 or 16:9 TV screens, depending on your set and the current broadcast.
Make sure your children are taking in appropriate programming with Parental Control, with V-Chip technology. A downloadable Rating Region table and lockable channels let you make the call.
Energy Star Compliant
Compliant with Energy Star standards, the ZAT-970A features an energy-efficient design and will shut off when not in use.
The ZAT-970A will be automatically turned off if no remote control button is pressed during the specified time durations.

Top Customer Reviews
With the Zinwell I found that scheduled recurring events (weekly, etc.) get messed up regularly so I have to constantly monitor them. The Zinwell loses the channel on the recurring events and resets the channel to the highest station number. (I believe this is the most commonly-reported major problem with this device.) Periodically it loses the recurring events completely and they need to be reentered. One-time events also get corrupted at times, although not as often.
The DTVPal Plus also loses timer events on occasion. I have found a couple of sequences of timer events that cause it to consistently drop events. I used several VCRs over two decades and never had a device malfunction on its timer events or spontaneously change the selected channel. Not sure why it is so difficult for these digital boxes.
Timer problems with both devices tend to occur when timer events are scheduled several days in advance. Over time the scheduled events get corrupted. If I am just gone for the day and set timers in the morning, both devices are reliable. If I am gone for several days, I set the devices to never turn off, and I arrange the programming so that there are as few channel change events as possible; for example, scheduling most of the CBS shows on one device and most NBC shows on the other device. I finally gave up on recurring events.
The Zinwell has 8 timer events to 5 for the DTVPal Plus. The Zinwell lacks a recurring M-F weekday scheduling option. Both devices make you go through several menus to get to the timer scheduling.Read more ›
Other boxes like the Zenith DTT901 have better reception capability, but lack the ability to operate with DVRs or VCRs.
The Zinwell also has analog passthru for people who will be watching Low Power or "clear air" stations after the February 2009 analog shutdown. If you're like me, and don't have any analog stations post-transition, then this feature has no real relevance.
The Zinwell's guide is rather poor, since it only tells you what program is on now, and what program will be on next hour. The Dish DTVpal has a full=featured guide upto 12 hours into the future, but I don't recommend that device due to poor quality build & software bugs that make it almost unusable.
Overall I'm satisfied with the Zinwell's DVR and VCR capability, although I still use the Zenith as my main box when watching live television.
