Summary: The best converter box I\ve tried.
I live in the worst spot for tv reception. I\m behind a hill with trees. The other converter boxes I\ve tried are the Zenith DTT900 and the Insigna ns-dxa1. Both had picture cut out when the wind picked up and reception varied with the weather changes.The Channel Master cm 7000 not only gets more channels it also keeps a picture during windy days. I got a Antennas Direct Clearstreem 4 antenna,Winegard preamp,RG11 coax and the Channel Master cm 7000. I get all the Portland OR. channels but one, and that\s because the Antennas Direct Clearstreem 4 can only pick up uhf and the very highest vhf channels. With a good vhf antenna I\m sure I can get all channels. The biggest improvement I had was when I hooked up the Channel Master converter box.

Summary: The Best
Weve been using the Channel Master CM-7000 for about 10 months and couldnt be happier. We live about 65 miles from Chicago, 85 miles from Champaign, and about 80 miles from South Bend. We get stations from all of these towns and more. Counting sub-stations we have scanned in 95 channels. Some of the weaker distant stations we can view only at night but we still have almost as many channels to choose from as we did using satellite (I dont count infomercial only channels). It also has a great picture and superb sound. Well worth the little extra $$.


ChannelMaster CM7000 Review #2
Rating: 1 (very poor) Nickname: fred Date: 2011-11-17
Summary: unreliable and zero customer support
I have two of these and neither powers on anymore. They were great for two years but now are just junk. Neither had been used a lot. I opened the top and checked the power supply voltages, which was right on. Others have reported the same problem. Customer service is nil. Recommendation: Stay away from Channel Master. I have had mixed feelings about this unit, as digital to analog converters generally have only RF output. Having S-video and composite video makes much more sense, since the idea of digital TV is to have better picture quality. The units even appear to be pretty well made. There just seems to be a design flaw and Channel Master just ignores their customers.

Summary: best I know of
I've had this model for three months now and its better then any other tuner I have. It picks up more stations and has the features I would hope for: signal strength meter, add channel scan for new antenna position and the show guide are the ones I use the most. Well worth the $30 I spent for it and if I buy another will be the one I get.

Summary: Only one that works where I live.
This is the ideal converter box for areas with signal problems.I live 20 miles from the towers in an area with lots of tall trees.I am using a 2 bay UHF antenna indoors.The picture using S-video is superb,far superior to other ones I tried.Save yourself a lot of headaches by spending a few extra $$ for this quality product.I tried several converters from different manufactures but the CM-7000 was the only one that locked on all the channels without the picture cutting in and out.The remote is very sturdy and well made and it uses Pioneer brand coding for easy programing to universal remotes.
