"Magnavox TB100MW9 doesn't work and Funai support stinks"0.5 starson by ses1978
Pros: Ease of use. That's all.
Cons: One minute it gets all the channels I can possibly get w/my indoor rabbit ears VHF/UHF antenna & the next, it drops 1, 2 or all my channels.
Summary: I first tried hooking this devil thing up in December and it got maybe like three channels. Funai tells me wait until after the conversion date and do a rescan. The conversion date gets bumped, but meanwhile I periodically try again. So come June, I tried again and got a few more. June 11, I picked up a few more. June 12, a few more, but not the major ones. FCC suggested making sure there was a window nearby since digital is more sensitive than analog. Check. We move the box and the antenna to the north side of the house next to a window. Hook it up, get all the channels, but the next minute, we lose two channels without doing anything. Yesterday, I turn it on and everything's in black and white and the sound is static. I rehook it and again lose everything, rehook and everything's back. Today, I turn it on and I've lost my channels again. FCC, my local broadcaster's association, the local television station and my family all concur that the box is the problem though but Funai is not taking responsibility. Unfortunately, neither is Wal-mart since it's the first generation box they sold and thus more than 90 days have passed since it was purchased, but you know what, we have the right not to be stuck with this lemon and to have access to information. What if a tornado comes blowing toward my house and I die because I don't know about it all because of some faulty converter box?
