Connect antenna to tv... thats all you need for a new tv... the box for a old tv...
Yes it will work on a non hdmi tv. In fact I am using it on an old television in another bedroom in my house.
Yes I just installed it on an analog tv. It works great. I did however upgrade to a larger tv antenna to pick up a couple more channels. The antenna that is supplied works ok if you're near the broadcasting city. I'm about 30 miles away so I went with a larger amplified antenna and get crystal clear picture. Also the DVR function is a nice feature.
It definitely should work; my tv is form the eighties!
Well we are finally able to get the channels from the box we have, my husband purchased this Mediasonic HW- 150 PVR to help us be able to do that. I really don't know much about them except we have an antina but out would not pick up the channels, & he said we needed this. Well it works great and has helped greatly.
It works with my LG Smart TV.
Yes it will play back saved recordings on the TV.
No it will work with any TV. I have been using it with our High Definition TV and it has an awesome HD picture.
Yes. The TV only allows you to see what the Mediasonic PVR is doing. In fact, if you have a modern TV, you can watch one channel on the TV while recording on the PVR.
I have tested this converter box and works as expected. It was able to catch multiple free channels same as connecting antenna. Also I connected the antenna in input to this box and output (AV) cable to the television just for the sake of test. To my surprise the picture of channels were still clear and crisp. So I trust this device for local channels and will cable subscription for local channels.
I have not used it with a Samsung Smart TV. I use it for an android box connected to LG Smart TV and it works great.
yes, and i must say the picture is beautiful!! You need to supply your own USB drive.
…reading other reviews indicated that it comes with default for cable not over the air so needed to reset that and then it worked fine - recording seems pretty straightforward -i used a previously purchased firelite accessory hard drive in my case the tuner picked up most stations but there were two that tv picked up from antenna and box did not pick up well so I purchased a splitter for coaxial antenna cable so I can hook it to tv antenna input and leelbox antenna input - this solved the problem no complaints for 29$ - i quit cable tv - spent less than 100$ for antenna , firestick and this recorder and saving over 100$ per month even with adding hulu and disney +( lots of grandkids )
I like it a lot just wish I knew how to navigate using it like I see everyone on the YouTube videos do. It works flawless with time I will be a pro using it. I can say it is better using this keyboard instead of the remote on a lot of things when using the leelbox.
Bring up the program guide. Scroll down to the future program you want and hit o.k. the event add screen appears. Check it out good and then at the bottom change mode from view to record with right volume. Hit o.k. and exit out of all menus. Turn box off then.
If I'm not mistaken, yes. It will work at ten feet eventhough if u want it for a box on ur tv, u won't have to worry about 10 feet.
Nice little TV box, I was amazed by the quality of the HD channels and the amount of channels it lets you view. You can record TV channels and save them on a USB drive to watch them later, which is very convenient for me since I'm busy during the day.…
We have a Vizio HDTV without a tuner. This small digital converter box did the trick. We had a little difficulty getting the HDMI cable securely into the box, but once the HDTV antennae (sold separately) is attached to the box, we got many HD quality channels without having to pay for cable. Well worth the money and effort.
I got nothing on the tv running my cable service through the digital converter box. Hope that helps you.
IT WILL WORK WITH ME TV HOWEVER FOR SOME REASON I FROM TIME TO TIME HAVE TO UNPLUG THE UNIT AND THEN REPUG IT IN. IT SEEMS TO FREEZE UP OR LOSE SOUND UNTIL I DO THIS
This device is just fine I have connected with the hdmi jack to my Samsung TV and the reason I bought it is because I really want to record my favorite program to watch them again , when I connected and started to search the live channels I got suprised because it didn’t take long vs my TV search.…
Dear buyer Thanks for your question. Yes, you can hook it up with coaxial connector on back of TV box.
These gadgets are great! I got it to skip commercials and, it does that well. It also allows me to record programs when I'm sleeping and watch what I want, when I want, (like a TIVO). The quality good, the remote quality is good. Some USB devices aren't recognized, like my USB ATA harddisk but, a 64GB SD card works fine.…
Connect it to a Slingbox500.(If you can get one)... then using your WiFi and another tv with either a firestick, chromecast, Apple TV, you are in business
If your TV has an antenna lead and video component leads, you should be able to plug in your converter box and go. It comes with those cables. Even better picture quality if your TV has an HDTV lead.
…Also, I live in what is called a fringe area about 65 miles from the TV stations. I use a roof mounted antenna and this pulls in the stations as well or better than our previous TV.... Overall, I would say this unit is very well built and does the job of bringing in distant TV station in HD very well. I would recommend it for anyone who requires a tuner for a big-screen TV.…
It works as a digital tuner if your TV doesn't have one. The antenna in it isn't very strong I had to buy an additional small outdoor antenna but now pickup over 60 channels with the combo.
It works just like any other converter box I've used in the past. It saves scanned channels unless the signal becomes weak for individual channels. Channel 3 is used for analog out. the remote is used to change channels in addition can mute sound and control volume. Your TV remote turns your TV on and selects input source.
The product works very well including the recording function. i bought a different tv converter box,from amazon a few months back,it was total garbage! This one works very well,as title of the review states,i was so pleased i just bought another for an older console tv,that still plays beautifully. The picture quality is excellent,and all tv and even some radio come in very well!…
Hello friend, Thanks for your interest. This converter box is for receiving the Over-The-Air signal but not a replacement of cable box and it needs to connect to External Antenna to receive signal. Hope this answer can help you. Eva

…Honestly, I don’t watch tv that much anymore since i have a baby to take care of, paying the monthly payment for time warner cable was such a waste of my money. I love how digital converter box is one time payment so i get to watch so many different channels without paying for the cable tv.…Also, i can record different channel while im watching tv so i can watch it later whenever i want to!…
Yes you can.read cable box install book
This will become your channel selector/tuner for your TV it will also adjust your volume. If you are looking for it to just covert the digital signal and you use your TV's remote it will not do that, at least it did not on my Samsung TV.
