CM7001 failure March 20, 2017
Reviewer: Jack Delgado from Miami, Florida  
After three years of use, my Channel Master CM7001 failed. It would just show a green light and would not take commands. I ordered its substitute CM7003 immediately because it's very convenient for me to have a tuner connected to my bedroom monitor.

I opened the metal enclosure with the intention of gutting it in order to keeping the box for my solar projects. What a surprise: two of the 16-volt 680 microfarad capacitors in the power supply board were popped! No wonder the new substitute CM7003 has a separate power supply! Anyway, minding the polarity, I soldered wires to the capacitor holes on the board, which was very easy to disassemble, and connected two electrolytics that I had of approximately the same value and higher voltage. Problem solved! It's working already.

When the CM7003 arrives, I'll keep it as a spare since I got it new, shipping included and no tax on e-bay for $34. I hope my experience can help others.

Poor quality April 6, 2015
Reviewer: Ed Jennings from Prairie Village, United States  
CM7001 started "popping" and lost programming just a few months after 90 day warranty expired.  Was able to re-program channels and continue using for several months until the last "pop" produced a dead unit.  Since Channel Master has no repair option, I had an EE examine and remove all capacitors and replace with good quality caps.  Unit is back working again but still randomly resets some features of programming, however no more "popping" noises.  No way to update firmware.
This was the same scenario I had with the older CM7000 units I own.  Once they were "upgraded" with new caps, they work fine.  Because I have to figure in the cost of repair/replacement within a year I will not buy any more Channel Master electronic products.  They are most likely made in China using cheap capacitors.

Input Source for an HD Video Wall March 3, 2015
Reviewer: Johnson Fisher, Director ISO, KSU from Kent, OH United States  
Easy setup, functioned as expected.  Originally had some HDCP issue but it was localized to the matrix switch and not the Channel Master.  Output choices allowed overcoming the issue.  
The channel master has been providing good quality video, reliably for months accepting input from our campus cable/satellite network.  The channel master has good flexibility accepting a variety or broadcast options.
I would increase the rating to 5 stars except for the following:  1  Output is less than HD (I believe we settled in at 480P, still looks good after coming out of the matrix switch at 1080P and 2 the channel switching is rather slow, perhaps a slight bit slower than a satellite receiver.
I would not hesitate to purchase this again given the same project requirements.

Don't wast your Money January 30, 2015
Reviewer: anonymous from Portsmouth, VA  
Got this tuner for analog and clear digital channels coming from CATV feed into building.  Will not tune both at the same time and was stuck with only tuning the Analog only.  Menu is clunky.  used the HDMI out to the TV's and audio kept dropping outstarting with clicks, then nothing.  Shifted to Analog audio out and Composite Video out and it worked ok, but the picture quality was very poor.  DO NOT BUY!
