Insignia NS-DXA1

 

The FCC has pushed back the DTV transition several times already, but it looks as if it will shut off over-the-air analog TV signals on February 17, 2009. That means owners of analog TV will need to pony up for a DTV converter box if they want to...

Solid video quality and reception; easy-to-use design, especially for digital TV amateurs; decent aspect ratio controls for handling widescreen programs on standard TVs; attractive design; remote can control the TV's power

Program guide is very basic; small remote control buttons aren't ideal for seniors; audio quality is subpar

The Insignia NS-DXA1 DTV converter box has an easy-to-use design and solid video quality, but buyers should be aware of cheaper--and possibly better--alternatives coming in the future.

Consumer review by:

Good while it lasts, one year.

 

If you want to replace it annually, it's a good box. Truly, we liked its features, it just doesn't last.

Liked pretty much all aspects of it

We bought two with coupons and both have died. Each lasted about one year

Completely worthless

 

In order to use this box, you must first navigate the setup. This requires that the ">" button on the remote works. Unfortunately, this remote was made in china and some buttons do not work, including the critical ">" button. Unlike any well...

None as far as I can tell

Does not work

Easy to use and work great, glad I picked this one.

 

I was looking at the CM7000 because of the s video and for some strange reason when I was ready to order it from Amazon it was not available anymore. Best thing that happened to me. Purchased the DTT901, I am very pleased with it. Works great, picture...

universal remote, great reception

None that I found yet

forget about it!

 

I also bought mine in June '08 but did not install until November when digital transmissions finally became available. Before then, I had no way of testing it. Live 2.5 miles from transmitter tower & using rabbit-ear antenna. Get constant drop out or...

Can find NO pros

Constant freeze or drop out of picture & sound

Consumer review by:

One of the top units and works great.

 

I have a 20" analog TV with a good rooftop antenna. This converter quickly found all the local HD channels and the picture was clearly better than with just the antenna, but about the same as with cable. I like the ability to set the aspect ratio for...

Easy setup, good quality, very usable. Nice remote. Pass-thru

Big red "power off" light, lack of programmability. No S-video output. Cables are surprisingly short
