Are you still holding on to your old analog TV? It's quite functional and working perfectly fine, so an upgrade isn't called for. Iview offers a practical and economical solution to households that rely on OTA broadcasts. Did you know you can tune in to basic stations for free? No strings attached, and by strings, we mean a set-top box and monthly subscriptions. By getting an iView digital converter box, you won't have to replace your beloved analog TV. You may even get to see the local feeds in glorious HD! The iView Premium is not your ordinary converter box. It's the ultimate entertainment hub! Ease of use, the comfort, and convenience it brings are awesome features that simplify life. Cut out your expensive cable bills and upgrade your converter box to the very affordable iView Premium.
Enjoy the following benefits when you get the high quality iView Premium:
- Automatically converts digital signal to analog
- Can pull in a lot more channels than other converter boxes
- Enables you to record your favorite shows
- Better sound quality and picture clarity
- Multiple outputs for maximum versatility
By default, the device is set to scan for ATSC channels over the air, using a standard antenna. But did you know that our converter boxes are also able to pick up Clear QAM channels as well? This can be done by going into going into the settings of your IView converter box and simply changing a setting. Once you’ve done that, you’ll be ready to watch cable TV in no time!QAM tuners come built in on some TVs in order to receive cable channels, but analog TVs typically don't have them. The iView Premium comes with QAM, or Quadrature Amplitude Modulation, capability, a format that most cable TV companies use to transmit and encode their signals. QAM works similarly with ATSC tuners in that they transmit and encode Over-the-Air signals, but that's where the similarity ends. Local TV stations use only ATSC while cable providers use QAM. The iView Premium is compatible with both ATSC and QAM signals. Getting both means you'll have access to cable channels as well, even those that are in HD, and perhaps a few extra channels.
You can get free high definition channels with the iView Premium unit. You now can choose to view TV content in your preferred format- whether it be 576p, 720p, 1080i or 1080p. Simply connect an HDMI cable from the Premium to your TV and voila! Crystal-clear viewing at its finest. The maximum definition that the iView converter box puts out is 1080p, which should be more than adequate for watching movies and your favorite TV series.
The EPG is a program listing that's similar to paper TV guides. Access this to see a screen list of channels and shows to choose from. Digital TV technology lets local guides transmit their channel and program information for your convenience. You'll need a set-top converter unit or a digital TV to see this feature. Program System Information Protocol, or PSIP, stands as the regular format for stations with a PSIP generator. The data coming from the PSIP is sent to the DTV, or digital TV signal which displays programming and station information, which users can see via the Electronic Programming Guide.With the iView Digital Converter device, you can access the EPG and see the upcoming shows in grid form, just like in cable DVR. You can use this feature to choose which shows to record.
Auto Tuning scans for all available channels and finds available digital broadcasts for one-click programming. You won't have to do extra channel up or channel down presses just to see the next channel.
Once you've done a scan of all the available channels, you can record your favorite channels into the Favorites menu. This way you can jump in-between two great shows without having to go through the shows in the middle. A customized list of channels make for better entertainment.
Access this function to limit what your children can watch with a few button presses. You can disable specific channels or TV stations and set a child-safe programming via a password. With iView, you get the best quality product. The iView Digital Converter Box is an all-in-one device that acquires both ClearQAM signals and OTA signals to give you the best of both worlds. The wide array of channels you can get will be more than any single converter box of a single type. What's more, you can use the iView Premium as a DVR for recording and playing back your favorite shows anytime.
From Analog to Digital
The iView Digital Converter box automatically converts digital signals to work with your analog unit. The tuner box comes in with input holes for both analog and newer-type TVs. The iView Premium has a built-in QAM tuner and supports Over-the-Air (OTA), which allows the user to receive some unencrypted digital cable channels, also known as "in-the-clear" channels. You can finally watch TV without needing additional set-top boxes or a monthly cable subscription. Our box also has passthrough capabilities via firmware to access analog channels in countries and areas where analog signals are still present. Analog channels will still be accessible due to our converter boxes' pass-through capability.
The iView Digital Box works great in OTA. Once plugged in, the Premium gives you a wider range of channels you can view, with noticeably higher picture clarity. Just take the converter out of the box, connect to your antenna line, and you're ready to go.
QAM isn't just for acquiring cable signals. The technology can also be used to record digital content while you're away from the TV. You can play music, movies, and videos in a wide variety of formats using a USB drive connected to your converter box. Choose the preferred show, then hit the Record button and the iView Premium will start recording the show, just like a DVR equipment. You can do a weekly or a monthly recording without any limits or extra fees. Recording works really well here- you won't be able to tell the difference between live and recorded content.
Connect your External HD For DVR recording. Plug your external disk drive in to record movies and shows straight to your device. You can also use the HDD to play content such as movies, music, and videos without any noticeable lag or loss of quality.

My HDD recorder allows me to watch a different show (already recorded in the hard drive) or watch the current one being recorded from the start and to fast forward, skip or rewind the current recording. The Iview does not allow me to do that. Once it starts recording the unit will not allow the user to do much else with it. The ivew however supports external hard drive or USB flash drive recording. So I can remove the hard drive or flash drive and watch the MTS files on my computer. My HDD recorder will only let me download recorded shows on a DVD disc or DVD-RW disc, in DVD movie format, and that takes time, sometimes as long as half an hour for a 2 hour recording.
Also programming with my HDD recorder is more straight forward. With the Iview, it is not as intuitive. For example, the left right arrow is used to change channels but the number keys must be used to input the time setting. I would have preferred allowing the user to use the keypad for both entering channels and entering the time settings. Programming in military time format is also not as easy to do since I have to mentally translate, say, 3 pm by adding 12 to it. However it does eliminate common mistakes such as setting the timer to record at 3 pm instead of 3 am. There is a good reason the military uses the 24 hour time format, so a soldier would not show up at 3pm instead of 3am for an assignment for example. The remove control does seem to be very high quality and seems better built than my HDD recorder remote. I just wish that the user interface is better. After pushing the Sch button, I have to use 1 to add a new program and 2 to edit one, instead of using the up and down arrow keys and the OK button to choose existing programs
Over all this converter box has some features that I wish were present in my HDD recorder but there are some features I would love to see included in this converter box. For this reason I will continue to use both my HDD recorder and this converter/recorder, depending on my needs. I bought this as replacement for my HDD when it stopped working after a power outage. Luckily the HDD recorder came back to life on its own later, after I bought the Iview. Now I have 2 devices that do similar things but neither one can replace the other. Since the Iview is many times cheaper than my HDD recorder, it is a great value.
For whatever reason, the tuner can’t find some of the channels my cable system sends me. And it decides to assign them random channel numbers, not the channel numbers that another type of tuner like a TiVo will assign. The remote control can pull up the tuners menu, but that menu is extremely barbaric. What is the tuner contain the channel, the channel looks great and the sound is good. I think you’ll find that this device can be frustrating to use, I can also be a lifesaver
Buying this TV converter box was the best decision I could make!!!
