Philco TB100HH9 Digital TV Converter Box Reviews

Product Rating: 4.0

This box has been found to be one of the best ones on the government certified list. Reports on it have been very positive and its analog pass-through feature (not found on a lot of boxes) is a huge plus. In order to get maximum performance with this and all other converter boxes you will need to get a digital antenna. Not having a digital antenna is no different that back in the analog days when not having an analog antenna caused major reception issues. 

This is one of the few converter boxes from the transition days that is still available from several retailers. Again, it's not the absolute best one out there, but you could do a lot worse.

Product Details: It has been reported to provider users with a fairly high end picture quality that is a slight step below the top converter boxes on the market. It is still an very significantly upgrade from analog TV and is rate in the "2nd tier" as far as converter box picture qualities go. The sound quality of it is a major upgrade from analog TV. The only sound issue with this converter box was that the RF volume comes out a lot lower than the L/R stereo outputs. It sells for around $60 at the few online retailers that have it in stock. In today's market this is actually a great price, especially considering its quality.

Features: It comes with an excellent program guide that provides information on the show title, total run time, and a short description. It also shows a short snippet of what is upcoming on each channel. One great thing about this one is that it was one of the first ones to come with analog pass-through. Analog pass-through allows you to keep getting the few channels that are not yet required to make the digital switch while also enjoy the benefits of digital tv for all of thee other channels. Finally, it also comes with the ability to auto scan for channels or manually set each, one at a time.Overall this box is rated as one of the better one on the market. Sure its sound and picture quality aren't the best but this is countered by the fact that it comes with analog pass-through.
