"Completely broke after less than a day - also broke TV!"0.5 starson by astwerty
Pros: When it worked, we got a good picture and all of the available channels.
Cons: Broke after a very short period of use; Caused analog TV to malfunction after it was removed
Summary: My parents have two Insignia NS-DXA1s that have worked well since last summer, so I decided to try this newer model Insignia converter box. What a mistake! For about 5 minutes, the converter box worked well. We got a good, clear picture and all of the local digital channels. Set up was also quite easy. However, about 5 minutes after we completed set up, the picture completely blanked out and went to snow. I made sure the cable was attached properly and eventually the picture returned. So the box worked for a couple more hours and blanked out again. This time the picture returned on its own after a few minutes.
The next day we go to use the TV again. After a couple of minutes, we have nothing but snow. The converter box's menu won't appear. It's as if nothing is attached to the TV. We played around with it for about an hour, but the picture never returned. So, we removed the box, reattached the antenna, and prepared to watch regular analog TV. However, somehow the box had messed up my TV. Channel 16 was somehow coming in on channel 67. Channel 24 was now somewhere in the 90's. I have no idea how this happened. Perhaps it is just one big coincidence, but I never had a problem with this TV (which I've had for approx. 14 years) until now. I won't buy any more Insignia products - it's just too much of a risk.
