RCA DTA800B1 review: RCA DTA800B1

 

RCA DTA800B1

Solid video quality and reception; excellent remote, especially for those with poor eyesight; easy-to-use basic electronic program guide; works with Smart Antennas, analog pass-through.

Composite video cable not included; doesn't work well with wide-screen TVs.

Good reception, respectable video quality, and a basic EPG make the RCA DTA800 an excellent DTV converter box, and its included remote is the best we've seen.

RCA DTA800B1

 

The DTA800B1 is fine at converting digital signals for use with old analog TVs, but don't expect anything so luxurious as included cables.

Easy to set up. Simple remote works well. Good-looking user interface. Smart antenna input.

Doesn't come with cables for analog audio and composite video out. Guide shows only one program ahead.

RCA Digital TV Converter didn't work with my TV

 

Maybe this converter is OK for someone else, but it didn't work out for me. It wouldn't bring in Phila., PA's local ch. 3. The sleep timer is 4 hours, my last converter gave me a minimum choice of 1 hour. 4 hours is much too long. These were the main...

RCA Digital TV Converter

 

The RCA Digital Converter provides a good picture and sound. I like the antenna tune feature and the ability to position the box vertically. Box can also operate with a RCA Universal remote control.

A great alternative to buying an expensive HDTV set

 

Not everyone wants to replace their old analogue TV sets, especially if they're still in perfect working order. In addition, the bad economy means that people are looking for ways to save money, including discontinuing their cable or satellite TV...
