COBY DTV-102

 

works great for the price

The signal from the remote to the receiver is a little spotty, but manageable.

Works great!

 

This works great with my older plasma tv and the RCA flat antenna. I like the guide and some of the other features. It's small so it is unobtrusive beneath my tv. Set up was a breeze. I would recommend this item.

Works Good and Can Power Off to Save Energy

 

Beats getting ripped off by the over priced bundled packages offered by Comcast.

Picks up all the stations in my area with no problems. Easy to use.

Only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 eggs is you have to be within 8 or 10 feet to use the remote control.

Works Great

 

The box works just great, no problems except every once in a while it will go off for no apparent reason. I have had the box for 3 weeks and it has only done this 3 times.

good product

 

Have had the Coby for about 10 days now.It works much better then the one I had. ...Only thing I done like about it is the remote.They need to eject it and start all over again.

Very easy

 

I got rid of cable because it was getting way too expensive. I was able to get 16 local channels. I hooked it up in about 5 minutes and only added an inexpensive antenna.

NOT TOO BAD

 

The remote does not have a mute or volume control. The menu is hard to read....no way to focus.

Coby Converter Box

 

The box did not work, not sure if it was the area I lived in or what. But it showed nothing at all.

Product Specifications

At midnight on June 12, 2009, all full-power television stations in the United States will stop broadcasting in analog and switch to 100% digital broadcasting. Digital broadcasting provides a clearer picture and more channels. It will also free up airwaves for use by emergency responders, among additional communication features that may develop. Analog television sets receiving free TV using an antenna will not work after June 12, 2009. Television viewers with these sets that are not connected to a pay TV service need to take action now. Most consumers who purchase a converter box today can connect it to their existing television and begin enjoying the benefits of digital television immediately. Broadcasters are transitioning to digital to provide important benefits to consumers. Because digital broadcasting is more efficient, broadcasters require less of the airwaves to provide a better television viewing experience. Once the DTV transition is completed, some television channels will be turned over to fire and police departments for emergency communication and others are being auctioned to companies to provide new wireless services. A TV converter box is a new product that plugs into your analog TV and, along with your antenna, will keep your analog set working after June 12, 2009. A TV converter box is a one-time purchase per applicable TV screen. You will need to take action before June 12, 2009, if you currently watch TV on an analog TV set that is not connected to cable, satellite or other pay TV service. If you own a television with a digital tuner or subscribe to a pay TV service, you will not need a converter box.
