Summary: Converter better than top shelf 32 Toshiba Cinema Series TV tuner
Nicely featured digital to analog converter with very sensitive scanner (missed nothing) which can be updated periodically without erasing the previous scan, handy signal strength meter which enables hacking antenna to improve weakest channels signal collection and theres a decent channel guide for the next 12 hours when the station has made it available. The S-Video output easily rivals the quality of the best premium channels (HBO, Cinemax, Showtime and Starz) from Direct TV Satellite. Free HDTV is the BOMB. Sound is way superior to analog or Direct TV. Over 35 channels scanned, its CD quality all the way. I get 17 channels in HD: mostly 1080i and a few in 720P. Half are in 5.1 channel Dolby, not just stereo which is also excellent. The TV just passed its 20th birthday and although I could buy a 50 plasma, it would be wrong to toss out the picture and sound quality on the 32 cathode ray TV now....its the best it has ever been in its 20 years. The Channel Masters picture and sound quality, along with the digital conversion has upgraded this older, fine TV from a 7 to a 9 out of 10. Now I have to wait until the TV fries itself before I justify replacing it! Great converter!

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: 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: Best Picture Quality I've Seen
Pros: This is the best Digital to Analog Converter Box I've seen. I could see why the Leading Consumer Testing Agency rated this the "best picture quality". It is the only one that has a S-Video cable adapter. It has a signal strength meter for every channel. The converter box materialis made of metal (not plastic) and can be stacked underneath lightweight objects as long as you don't cover any air holes it will not overheat. For the energy saving consumers this converter box also has a feature that automatically turns off the box for you for a selected amount of time. The box features also have parental controls and a easy to use channel updater. Cons: The coverter box does not a smart antenna port, and analog pass through. This box has extremely small closed captioning text size but can be replaced by the tv menu's closed captioning menu. The box does not come with A/V cables. Bottom Line: The box is $69.99 and is the only box with a S-Video Cable Port. With the best picture quality rated of 2008.

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.
