      Comments about Digital Stream Digital-to-Analog Converter w/ Pass-through:

      My friend has this unit, and it works well for him. I like all the extra channels he has. It views 50 or more channels,and the menu is nice. I bought one for my dad for Father's Day, but it doesn't work as well for him in Tecumseh, Oklahoma. He can only view 25 channels clear.

        Comments about Digital Stream Digital-to-Analog Converter w/ Pass-through:

        Love the EPG (program guide)---it give DAYS of programming info if the station's stream is sending out that much info.
        Good reception---pulls in about 40 channels for me in a rural area of VA.

        BUT...this is my 4th Digital Stream converter because they ALL fail prematurely due to overheating/capacitor issues.
        For the price, I can't recommend it as it's def. not in it for the long haul (and I'm not over using them---no one unit is in use for more than 4 hrs a day)

        If they reduce their price by HALF or fix the issues that make them fail in under 2 yrs of light - med. use then I'd recommend them at even their current pricepoint.
        (for a converter that has a EPG that is better than all but the Dig. Stream, RECORDS to flash drive or hard drives, AND costs half as much take a look at the iView models)

        Also, be aware that the pricing at Radio Shack online is NOT what the pricing is at their stores ---i.e. the store will not match a sale price online.

                      Between households my family has owned 7 of these units purchased back when the government was offering rebates as part of the analog to digital conversion. They seemed to be a good choice back then when options were limited but over time 4 of the original 7 have failed with a 5th flaky and about to fail. There are now many more offerings on the market that have added features like HDMI connectivity, ability to record to a USB drive, and better programming guides for about half the cost. I would strongly recommend looking at other options due to the failure rate of these units and lack of newer functionality.
