Pros worked okay while it worked
Cons worked okay while it worked
Summary remote quit after 2 years and to replace it costs 35.00 which is half of what the system cost.
Pros Volume for variety of TV makes controlled by the RCA remote - better than a design limiting the audio line output from the converter to the TV. The RCA volume control also preserves the TV's rate of vol. increase/decrease. Ch. buttons on box a plus.
Cons My DTA8ooB1 manufactured July 2009 dropped EPG features. The "info" remote button displays program title but the EPG dropped "what's on now" "what's on next."
"Do Not Buy! Junk!"on by bthancock
Pros Can find none.
Cons I have had three of these fail. At first it seems like the antenna , but then you realize it is the converter box.
Summary I am going shopping.
Pros It was easy to program, and I liked that I could place it either vertically or horizontally.
Cons The remote did not have a "back" button for reverting for the previous channel. But my biggest complaint is that it quit after 3-1/2 months!
Summary I only ordered one coupon toward a digital converter. So, to have my converter quit after just a few months was more than a little frustrating. I had made the mistake of purchasing it at Wal-Mart, and when I called about replacing it, I was told they no longer carried any converters and that I would have to contact the manufacturer. So, there was a $40 coupon down the drain. I will be returning this converter to RCA with a note informing them that I will no longer purchase anything made by them. I had purchased an MP3 player by RCA which died after not even six months. I am very disappointed with this company. I have purchased a DigitalStream converter and am hoping it will be better.
"Not impressed!"on by Hulkster72
Pros It does receive a few channels
Cons Remote doesn't work unless pointed directly at the unit and not sitting on a table/sofa. When scanning channels, often freezes on multiple channels without response for 5-10 seconds. Lost half my channels when official transition occured.
Summary Not impressed!
