Digital Stream DTX9900 DTV Converter

Digital Stream DTX9900

The Digital Stream DTX9900 digital-to-analog converter box from Digital Stream has been optimized to help you make the transition from analog to digital broadcasting in 2009. This converter box simply hooks up to your analog TV so you will be able to receive over-the-air digital broadcasts. This new broadcasting will allow you to view more programming with the “sub-channels” available from many digital TV stations. The new broadcasting techniques allow you to say goodbye to fuzzy analog channels. This government mandated transition is happening on February 17, 2009, so be ready!

    I have had a Digital Stream DTX9900 since January 2008. It works very well for me, even in rural Montana, recieving signals from over fifty miles away. The antenna has to be good, but the converter handles relatively weak signals very well. No problems found yet.

    Following the owners manual, I failed to be able to program the remote control. On section 05, I was unable to bring up the Setup Wizard on step 4. The directions are simple to follow. If this DTV Tuner box is O.K. I can see some problems that will pop up come February.

    I have two units. The remote control feels sturdy and has beefy buttons. The composite output is cristal clear. However, its my experience that the RF output can cause a herringbone pattern when either channel settings are used (3 or 4). A very good unit if you stick to using the RCA outputs.

    I purchased one of the Digital Stream converter boxes a few weeks ago,my TV now has a black rectangle that takes up about one third of the screen on three different channels.

    Unfortunately, here in Bozeman, Montana where I should be able to receive signals, I can only receive CBS and the CW. I’ve completely lost PBS, NBC, ABC, and FOX… whoopie… I suppose I need to buy yet another device (new Roof Antenna - even though my old roof antenna works just fine with Analog) on top of the Digital converter box in order to continue watching TV. Perhaps it is simply time to haul our TVs to the Good Will instead. Digital TV - ha ha ha…
    No - I, for one, am not impressed with a Government-mandated requirement that results in such a decrease in service…

    I bought this tuner back when I got my 40 dollar card from the government. It works fairly well as far as picture and sound quality are concerned, but I’m having problems with a black rectangle taking up a third of the screen. It just started doing this, so I’m not sure if the device is degrading or what. Worrisome. One other poster here had the same problem, and there’s no way to fix it that I’ve been able to find, so you should maybe think twice before buying this prodcut.

    The black rectangle can be eliminated my using the zoom button. Try setting the the picture size on your tv as well.
