                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.

                Remote is incredibly unhandy and poor firmware/ menu design. I should have known when I bought it from Radio Shack!!!!

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

                  After using a RCA converter for a few months and still having problems getting steady reception of a few channels I really wanted, I decided to "freshen up" a few things. I replaced a couple of cables, added another antenna and for kicks, decided to try this Digital Stream converter. Whether or not it improves reception, I can't say since other changes were made. What I do like is the firmware vs what was available on the RCA unit. The menus are pretty easy to maneuver through. There are multple ways to check signal strength. It can be done without having to stop watching a show, fire up the menu and drill down to the meter. Not only can you view the title and possibly a description of the show presently being viewed, you can see a schedule of shows coming up. It's pretty simple to set favorites. It's easy to de-select channels that you don't want to flip through when "channel-surfing." We're getting multiple PBS stations and some others. I can pick the ones with the weaker signal and take them out of the list without being stuck with everything auto-scan finds. As for how long this thing will last, we'll see. One reviewer complained about getting only five years usage. Consider yourself lucky to get five years out of a 500.00 laptop. If this unit fails in short order, I will naturally be disgruntled. If not, I have no complaints.

                      This thing worked ok when connected to my attic antenna but then one day just stopped. Its been maybe 5 yrs since I bought it. why dont things last as long as they used too? I would swear it has a self impolsion divice inside so evryone has to buy a new one every 5 yrs.
