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 numbers vary depending on how many channels are broadcast in your area. It has been my experience that this unit will not work in areas with more than 128 broadcast channels.

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.

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.

Input is standard VHF/UHF antenna cable with pass thru for older tv sets that only have an antenna input. It also has RCA outputs for sets that can accommodate those. This unit has no composite, nor digital coax capabilities.

Question

Can you also use your TV's functions, when using this converter remote?

I like to utilize the sleep timer on my TV, however, I am needing to purchase a Digital converter box, and I noticed the remote on this does not have that sleep timer function. So, can I use my TV remote for the sleep timer function, even though, I use the converter box remote to receive the digital channels?
