3 out of 5 eggs Excellent -- for the money 01/31/2014

This review is from: iView 3500STBII Multi-Function Digital Converter Box with Recording and Media Playback

Pros:

The unit produces a good picture. Telephone tech support is responsive and USA based. HDMI output and RCA output for audio work together.

Cons:

The menu will show up on top of whatever channel was last selected. This can be annoying but resolved by switching to a blank channel. The daily scheduling option is for all seven days. There is no weekday scheduling option. I found that my unit got confused when trying to schedule successive days when the program went over the date line. (i.e. 2300 to 0100) There is no chase capability. If you want to watch a program that you have recorded, you have to wait until it has finished recording. The documentation is in small print and could be a lot better but that seems to be the norm now-a-days.

Other Thoughts:

I purchased this unit on sale and was amazed at how much bang for the buck that I got. The unit handles the lower channels from my cable service --2,4,5,7,9,11,13 &21 plus sub channels. I'd be thrilled to find a similar unit, hopefully with the cons above worked out, that would handle all of the cable channels. I'm sure that they can do it. Also, oddly enough, a lot of the procedures and info provided make sense only to the technically inclined; Joe TV watcher isn't going to be able to handle this. But then again, this is becoming true for a lot of this stuff.
