Review 21 for Ematic AT103B Digital Converter Box with LED Display and Recording Capabilities

Nice features, lousy quality control.

The good news is that this box has a lot of good features. It has an excellent guide, it can play mp3s and many video formats from the usb port, and it can record video to a USB drive.
The bad news is doing these things is awkward, due to poor software and bad remote design. The remote has 41 buttons crammed into a few square inches, making it very difficult to use. Both the manual and the on screen display have errors. There are no quality options for recording, which means that recording video from the higher resolution stations takes up a lot of space. If you plan on recording video, you'll need a very large USB drive.
The unit I got went bad a few hours after I received it. It started rebooting itself after being plugged in for a hour or so. It would not restart until it had been unplugged for a while, so I assume it was overheating.

The converter box is easy to set up. You will find the buttons on the remote require you to push a little harder but it works just fine. A real plus is that the box shows a 7 day menu of what is on for each channel.

FINE AS CONVERTER DISAPPOINTING AS RECORDER

Good as a converter even with confusing display on the front. The promised seven day guide is dependent on the info put out by the broadcasting stations and only shows for the station you are on, not as a grid showing several channels at a time. The recording is disappointing in that segments are dropped frequently, when I record Jeopardy parts of a question or an answer are dropped every couple of minutes. I used a good quality flash drive (PNY) so I don't think that is the problem. The microprocessor is slow but you get used to it. An incredible number of features for the price but it is awkward to use and I have done TV repair for 40 years so I am pretty tech savvy. Don't get one for your Grandma she won't have a chance. If you like technical challenges you will love it.

Impressive! Easy to set up. I really like this product. Channels on box show up different but input from remote is the same. And you can record programs. Awesomeness. The clarity of the actual tv improved 100%. It's a keeper.

Tips:
1. Change TV input source. If you use HDMI cable. "Change from TV to HDMI 1 or 2"
2. After TV box power up. It will Auto search Channels, and give you nothing. Just Exit, go back to
Main Menu. Change TV box input source from "Air" to "Cable".
3. Do Auto search and Enjoy.

This Ematic Digital Box replaces my original Magnavox box I bought (from Walmart) when the government mandated digital tv services. The Magnavox lasted almost 5 years, I hope the Ematic does also. So far so good.

Manual was very hard to understand
Even thoug specs say VHF and UHF when hooked to cable it would not find any of the local channels and out of 230 channels found only 2 of them where not scrambled.
All in all for me this was a waste of my money

If you are looking for an alternative to cable TV a converter box is still a great option.
Most channels are easy to access.

Have an antenna ? This device will tune stations for you. But it will also functionn like a Cable Box recorder for the over the air statione, but without any monthly fees, if you plug in a USB Memory stick or Hardrive.
Schedule recordings or even playback many types of computer format videos recorded on your camera or downloaded from web sites.
It can connect to an old style Tv, or to the HDMI input of a flat screen. Good reception (depends on your location and antenna) and a sharp picture. Maybe better reception than the tuner in your Digital TV.
Not perfect, but considering the price it's a great value for the money.

I really wished this product functioned properly especially for the price. The DTV tuning works but box reboots sporadically. The recording option doesn't work due to freezing up / rebooting and box gets hot.

Just hooked her up to an old TV in my bedroom with a cheap antenna and am able to get around 20 channels, more than enough for me. Haven't used the "recording capability" aspect and probably won't. Have used converter boxes for a few years now in different areas of the house, and they've all held up pretty well. Hate Time Warner but need them for internet. Anyway, this unit was a cinch to hook up and was a decent price. Hope it holds up. So far, so good. Anyway, I paid $5 for the TV at a garage sale, so all around, I figure my "entertainment" is bought and paid for in no time.
