"I don't see a down side"5.0 starson by Orgelkraft
Pros: I have been using two of these for about six months and both are rock solid, great picture and the sound is great through my receiver. I don't know what other people are hearing. maybe theirs is defective. It came with the cables needed to set it up.
Cons: I could have been less expensive, but I guess you get what you pay for... It doesn't work with my RCA Universal Remote.. but I guess that's RCA's fault...
Summary: I haven't had a single problem with both of my boxes. I get ALL the channels in my area and a couple from outside my area. The picture on both boxes is outstanding, better than my dish receiver. The sound is VERY good through my home theater sound system... I don't hear any of the problems people have described. I have a 32" Sony TV and DVDs don't look any better on it. I set out to buy a couple of TIVAX STB-T8 boxes based on the Consumers Reports ratings and couldn't find them. If the Tivax box IS better than the Zenith... It must be a very minute difference, I couldn't be happier with the reception, picture quality or sound.. My parents bought one two months ago and their box looks and sounds as good as mine. I would buy them again in a heartbeat.I love the remote! I'm 53 years old and I don't have ANY problems using it. My kids haven't complained either. It controls my TV, and I like the way the up-down buttons work, everything has a very positive feel... The operating range is pretty good too. I guess if you think a big clunky remote is a good thing you won't like it. This one is sleek and works GREAT!
