Was easy to hook up. The menu is easy to navigate. Scanning for channels is simple and takes a short time. the ZOOM feature will make the picture bigger but may cut off outside parts of it.
It powers itself off for no apparent reason, bad if you set a VCR to tape via it. Can't ADD a channel that may be weak/ not there all the time. Their on screen guide on my 20" TV has small print - hard to read across the room. NO on unit controls.
This was the only one BEST BUY carried at the time. I had a day or 2 to use my $40 off coupon and this was it. It did get OK ratings in the reviews I read up to then so I bought it. I did not hook it up ... Read full review
This was the only one BEST BUY carried at the time. I had a day or 2 to use my $40 off coupon and this was it. It did get OK ratings in the reviews I read up to then so I bought it. I did not hook it up nor scan for channels till June 12th. I do rescan from time to time but there's no real changes. Our channel 7 was there on the 13th but the signal may be too weak to be scanned in and set. There is no way of adding it without doing a complete scan. And this unit does power itself off for some reason. I don't know if one of my other remotes is affecting it or if it's suppose to do that or if there's a defect- I'm still checking. There is a 'sleep' setting. I have it set to max 5 hrs. This is bad if I have a VCR set to record via this box and I go out for more than 5 hrs.It has NO on unit controls- ie power off/on; channel up/down
All in all, OK for the price if you got a coupon. Check it out right away and if it's flakey like mine- take it back before it's too late and get something else.
