Customer Reviews

Same as an RCA unit you can get at Wallmart except for poorly designed internal power supply.

I’ve gone through two of these in the last 6 months, both for the same reason. This product is basically the same as a small RCA “Digital TV Converter + Recorder” that they sell at Walmart, with two big differences:

Excellent low cost Tuner and DVR recorder

The tuner works great with an antenna, with clear reception on high def channels. The digital recorder, which the manufacturer refers to as “PVR”, is what really is satisfying. You can pull up upcoming shows by channel, select the show you want to record, and specify f you want to record it once, daily or weekly — it is that easy. If you want to see what you recorded, you can display the PVR list. I have had the box running for days, and it is only slightly warm to the touch. I’m recording onto USB 2 flash memory, which works well with high def. A one hour high def show can take 4 GBs, where 1 hour at low def takes approximately 1 GB. Another nice feature is that I can download my recordings to my computer (MAC) and review, rename or review each there, then copy these back out to flash card fir viewing on the Viewtv box. This is an excellent functioning and low cost ATSC Tuner, DVR and full function remote; how do they do it for only $39.99? I was so impressed with this unit that I purchased a second one.

Viewtv AT-163 worth the price if you update the firmware

This converter box is yet one more in a line of boxes put on the market by several other makers (iView, ematic, homeworx being some of the others) that makes it possible to tune HDTV and make recordings of live TV. All of these different boxes are made in China, they all seem to run the same basic firmware and all offer the same functions. The differences between them is in the case design, the number and type of output connectors on the back and the size of the remote control. Some of the boxes only have composite and HDMI outputs, others have composite, component, HDMI and digital optical outputs. Most of the boxes come with very small remote controls, which means very small control buttons also. For me, small is bad. The small size of the remote along with the small buttons makes using the remote a major pain in the BLEEP. It’s very easy to hit the wrong button, and in a dimly lit room, to see the button you want to hit. So, therefore, in my opinion you should choose one of the boxes that comes with a full size remote.

Great price

This doesn’t work all the time. It’s buggy & intermittent. Sometimes the menu system works, sometimes it doesn’t. I’ve recorded several TV shows, haven’t gotten 1 to play all the way thru before it freezes, then nothing works, not even the power off button- have to unplug the unit and try again.
