ConverterBox is a highly versatile product in a tiny package. At just 1 high and 5 wide, youll hardly know its there. Use ConverterBox to receive live TV on older analog TVs, turn a computer monitor into a TV, or add a simple channel guide and basic recording capability to any TV, whether analog or digital, through RCA or HDMI connection. *Enabling basic recording capability requires a USB drive (Flash or Solid State), minimum 16GB and maximum 128GB. IMPORTANT: The USB drive must be a new, first-time use device in order to be properly formatted for use with ConverterBox. After testing a number of Solid State storage devices, we concluded the "Sandisk Extreme 500 series; Model# SDSSDEXT-120G" consistently provided the best results.

ConverterBox is a versatile, low-cost TV box that fills many needs for today's TV household. For the consumer with older analog TV's, ConverterBox will allow them to receive and display digital signals from a TV antenna on their analog TV set. For the consumer with digital TV's, ConverterBox will allow them to add a simple channel guide and basic pause, rewind and record capabilities for a TV antenna.

ConverterBox will also allow users to turn a computer monitor into a TV set. The internal ATSC tuner will receive and deliver live over-the-air TV programming to devices that do not contain a TV tuner.

Ultra low power consumption caps off the performance of this very small and unobtrusive product.

converterbox April 13, 2018
Reviewer: Joseph Hall from Portland OR  
works well when I run I thru my receiver.  When I ran it directly to my tv with hdmi  it overscanned badly especially with 480 channels so cropped images. Disappointed no 5.1 audio and doesn't seem to have sap capabilities

Converter Box Review April 9, 2018
Reviewer: Dax B from Salt Lake City, Utah  
I have tried many converter boxes over the years and this one definitely is the best I've tried.

With the guide button on the lighted remote, it makes it easy to see whats on TV in the dark

With the recording capability, you can't watch one channel  and record on another. It only records one show at a time. Still AWESOME and inexpensive for a converter box with DVR functionality in my opinion.

If you want more DVR capabilities go for the Stream+.

Does what ChannelMaster promises.... March 19, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Warren, MI  
Simplistic in design and function... this single channel viewer/recorder works as advertised on an HDTV or PC monitor.  The plug in 128gig USB drives are an economical way to record and save programs for later viewing.  Just select the program you want to record from the guide, set it, and forget it... These can also be moved easily between several TVs in your house as needed, -- and the price is right too!
