Pros Works fine, Installed simply
Cons Per the "support" page linked to from it's LG / Zenith product web page, The DTT901 converter boxes we owners THINK we own don't actually exist! It's absent any and all references to any DTV converter.
Summary Put the documentation in your bank Safety Deposit box because lose it and YOU'RE SCREWED.
Pros Set up ease of use, amount of channels, universal remote, angle of remote, one button aspect ratio
Cons No S video.
Summary I already use the Tivax STB T8 which is one of the higher rated boxes. I thought it was great till I got this one. It brings in 30% more channels, the remote can be used at any angle and when I plugged it in, it found all the channels before I even went through set-up. I am using a 15" TV so this could make a difference in picture quality. Maybe with a bigger screen, it would not be so clear. All I know is that I can see why all the reviews favor this converter box overall. I still like the Tivax but favor this one.
Pros It was a pleasant surprise that the programmable remote can switch on TV as well as converter box. Features on the remote allow you to switch on/off closed captioning, check signal power, goto menu and switch on/off sleep timer. Box is nice lookin'.
Cons Remote seems to have a more difficult time switching on/off the TV than the actual box, I often must hit the TV button several times even though the two are located right next to each other.
Summary I was told I would have to have an antennae to make it work, but I hooked the antennae outlet into a cable TV line that was disconnected at the street level and it worked great as an antennae!
Pros This is an easy converter box to setup. The on screen menu is very easy to navigate and setup. It receives very well.
Cons I have owned this unit for about one year now and when it get's hot the picture starts to jump. A fan is needed to keep it cool. I looked in side the unit and the processor chip gets warm just after a couple of minutes of being on.
Summary A fan in this would help keep the electronics more stable. I would recommend buying something else.
Pros As advertised the box has good reception and works great, at least for about 1 month.
Cons After 1 month, machine code is splattered across my screen. I am unable to turn it off, change channels, etc with either the remote or front panel controls. At least once a month, I have to reset the box by unplugging it from the wall.
Summary As jupiteron stated above, I had my box for about 4 months and was told by LG customer support that part are covered for one year but labor was only for 90 days. They wanted to charge me $35 to repair the unit or replace it with a refurbished model.
Don't waste your money on this unit. The one year warranty is very misleading, and LG will not budge from their policy.
