Winegard RCDT09A review: Winegard RCDT09A


Earlier in the spring we published a blog entry titled, " Don't buy a portable TV this year " highlighting the fact that the vast majority of portable TVs use analog tuners that won't pull in TV signals after the analog-to-digital TV transition...

First battery-powered coupon-eligible DTV converter box; good reception and video quality; compact design; analog pass-through.

Limited EPG; remote buttons are small; composite AV cable not included.

The Winegard RCDT09A is the first DTV converter box that can be powered by batteries, and it's a great choice for those who want to use their analog portable TVs after the DTV transition.
