Product Reviews

  • "Adjusting 30-2890 on install." by ncrelich on 3/16/2014
    Overall: 5 out of 5

    Got this unit for an older Runco TV and also to allow connection to a stereo amplifier. After having the TV respond with a 1080 reading on the screen polling the HDMI button on the remote, the TV was still without a picture. Then one needs to adjust the Clock Button on the remote to adjust the height-width ratio to match the TV. For this unit, that button labeling is confusing.

    Had an unusual situation where we needed to simultaneously feed component video to an older projector for local TV broadcasts, and composite video to a small monitor in the rack. This tuner does both flawlessly. And if my customer ever upgrades to HDMI, we're still set. The picture quality is perfect.

    Sensitivity is great, picks up all expected channels very well. The on screen display and channel guide are OK, certainly good enough, but not as nice as you'd see on a new TV or cable box.

    I did take away a star because of the LED display on the front of the tuner. Rather than show a channel number, it shows a memory location. A bit inconvenient in my case, but I would imaging normally not a big dea.

    All in all, I really like this and would highly recommend.

  • "Terrible composite video out." by PLongenecker on 1/24/2014
    Overall: 1 out of 5

    Video out is horrible. Choma burst is centered in the sync pulse driving most monitors crazy. Needs an expensive frame synch to correct. I bought 6 for off-air monitoring, all have the same problem. Maybe rf out ch3/4 works, but not why I wanted them.

  • "Great Item" by harinkj on 1/23/2014
    Overall: 5 out of 5

    This Tuner works great. A couple of tips:

    1. If the digital monitor being used has a problem with a steady setup menu, just also run the mode with coax to a television tuned to Channel 3 which was steady. Then try the different resolutions with the HDMI cable also connected to the digital monitor. With my monitor the initial resolution of 1080i caused the image to roll. When I changed to 1080p, it worked perfectly on the HDMI monitor.

    2. After scanning for the stations, several with the same virtual channel were skipped when using the channel up or down button. I went back into the menu and used the manual search setup on the channel by going to the RF channel and then the channel with the duplicate virtual number was not skipped.

    3. My HDMI monitor does not have speakers so I just ran the audio cables to a stereo. Result is super video and audio.

    This box is great I was amazed to have HDTV for such a small cost as I had a digital monitor available.
