    I wanted add on channel capabilty that the new Tivax 12 doesn't have. It works well and seems to pick up more channels (30) than the old Tivax 9 I had. Use with a new flat antenna, which also works better than rabbit ears. I don't like that only two programs appear in the guide. The Tivax allows you to view hours ahead. This one is less costly than Tivax and I am completely satisfied with it. Just hope it doesn't break as quickly as the Tivax 9 did (Two lasted only 3 years.) Remote writing is tiny. Have to wear glasses and turn on all the lights to read button functions.

    I gave it 1 star because it looks good, but is not useful at all yet. I cannot make anything work with the sound. I get a few stations but no sound other than static and diagonal dot pattern. I wish it would work as it is supposed to do.

      Comments about Zinwell ZAT-970A ATSC Digital to Analog Converter:

      It took me a while to see signal on tv. but eventually it did work, although my RCA antenna can only receive ABC, Fox and Channel 11 signals. I can't see CBS or NBC. it's a pain. Besides, sometimes the screen just jumps and misses full picture. i have to adjust the antenna.

        Comments about Zinwell ZAT-970A ATSC Digital to Analog Converter:

        We bought our first ZAT-970A when TV stations switched to digital. We tried recording on DVD's but they were unreliable. So, we bought the Zinwell to convert the signal from digital to analog. We record on tapes which last a long time and are reliable. Does a great job and we are pleased with it. The first Zinwell started losing time so we thought it might be going bad and replaced it.

          Great product!
          Physicaly is in a metal enclousure which it seems a little flimsy and weak, but I'm not going to throw it around, it will be seated in a single place.

          Software is very user friendly menus with plenty of information so the user can play around.

          Picture is great with great performance. It brings old TVs back to life the right way.

          Connectivity is ok. I personally wish it included an HDMI option which it could be very helpful for monitors. In my opinion for the price and the era they should have it regardless.

          Price for the quality of product and instructions is high, but it compensates with performance.

          For not having and HDMI and low end enclosure I deduct 1 star. Over all, I'm extremely happy with this product.

                          The best thing about this converter is that it has a timer to allow recording of different channels at different time slots on your vcr. If you are not paying for cable, satellite, or a dvr this may be your best option to time shift shows.

                              I live at the edge of the reception area. I have a cable system in my house with many analog TVs. I have made a "headend" with multiple HDTV converter boxes. They run 24/7. This Zinwell receives the signals much better than the Digital Stream, Zenith, RCA etc.

                                  This was so much easier than I had anticipated. All I had to do was connect everything and the converter took it from there, scanning and storing channels. It even came with instruction inside the box on how to hook up the converter if you have a VCR or DVD recorder. A huge relief for someone who is moderately technologically challenged.

                                    We've used this for 2 weeks and this seems to be a good unit. Easy setup but if you're signal is weak to begin with this won't increase it. It did however get us more channels. These units are getting hard to find, this is the best offer.

                                        I wanted add on channel capabilty that the new Tivax 12 doesn't have. It works well and seems to pick up more channels (30) than the old Tivax 9 I had. Use with a new flat antenna, which also works better than rabbit ears. I don't like that only two programs appear in the guide. The Tivax allows you to view hours ahead. This one is less costly than Tivax and I am completely satisfied with it. Just hope it doesn't break as quickly as the Tivax 9 did (Two lasted only 3 years.) Remote writing is tiny. Have to wear glasses and turn on all the lights to read button functions.

                                                    These units work great. Easy to set up and work as advertised. Arrived on time as expected. Quit the cable company and now all OTA. Plenty of channels here in our metro area. Works great.

                                                        I ordered a new antenae, it grabbed a few more local channels than I had had before, but when I hooked it to the new converter I got everything! The combination was GREAT results.

                                                        The setup on the converter is easy to use. I like the display menus that step you through everything....very user friendly.
