Question

We have an analog TV in our guest room. We have Verizon FIOS and a cable hook-up in that room. I don't want to pay an extra $5.00 per mo. for a TV

that is just used occasionally. Will we be able to connect the cable hook-up to this converter box and pick up basic cable stations?

The range depends on your antenna. I have a long range antenna connected to a signal booster and pick up stations 60 miles away.

Your location and terrain and the type of antenna will determine what the digital box can receive. Do a web search for which digital TV antenna do I need. Several sites will guide you through the process.

It will receive all of the channels in your area. Those channels are specific to your location and most of the channels have sub-channels and the reception will depend on your location and the signal strength which requires one of several types of antennas. Do a web search for digital TV antennas, which antenna do I need. Several sites will guide you through the process to determine if you need a rabbit ear type antenna or a larger unit mounted in the attic or on the roof or a pole.

Yes it will. But, if you have more than 128 channels available in your area you would be better off with another manufacturer. I purchased no less than 6 of these units yesterday and returned all of them. Not one of these units would complete the initial channel scan! They all froze at 129 channels.

HDTV is digital. You don't need a converer.

answer 2
Yes it will. But it will be redundant as most HDTVs don't require a digital to analog converter. You should be able to receive digital signals via antenna and your HDTV will do the digital decoding. These converters are for older televisions that do not have digital capabilities.

Yes. I have mine connected to a DVR which is connected to the TV. Set your TV and VHS to channel 3 and choose TV channels with the converter.

There is no composite output on this unit. But it does have RCA output which can easily be fed to your VCR's RCA connections allowing you to record programs. Your VCR would then feed your TV with thru put.

I bought this today 8/17/2013 and got home and tried to plug my cable (Comcast) through this. IT DID NOT WORK! I got the language screen, and I got the start automatic channel scan screen. NO CHANNELS were found. Save your money if you think this will work with cable because it doesn't. I'll be returning it for my money back tomorrow.

I recall doing a search recently about digital US TV and one Canadian commented that he was receiving the channels from the US. I do not remember where he was located. I hope this helps you.
