Tivax STB-T12 Digital TV Converter Box Reviews

Product Rating: 4.5
As of 2014 this is one of only a few converter boxes that is still available for purchase. The majority of boxes are out of stock and if there ever was one that you'd want to still be able to purchase it's this one. This baby is loaded with a bunch of great features and does its job extremely well.

Product Details: The new Tivax STB-T12 is almost exactly like the old Tivax STB-T8. It comes with the same great picture quality that people have come to expect from Tivax boxes. It also comes with excellent sound quality that provides users with a great viewing experience. Beyond this it can be reasonably assumed that it will stand the test of time just like the previous two converter box versions that are still being reported to be running great for the majority of consumers.

The only major difference between this and older versions is the added S video output that many people have been asking for. Before this box came about the Channel Master CM-7000 was the only converter we were aware of that had the S video output feature.

It has been shown to be very reliable over the long haul as we have seen very few complaints about it breaking or refusing to run properly. It is available exclusively online and currently sells for $60-$80 depending on where you purchase it from. We highly recommend this converter box just like we did with all of the other Tivax converter boxes. Without any more government coupons this will cost you a decent amount of money but if free over-the-air TV is what you want then you can't go wrong here. Take a look at the complete list of features below in order to make sure it has everything you are looking for.
Update April 2014

"This box works great, got one at a thrift store for $10. I like the controls on the box, not like my old magnavox were I had to use only the remote. I also love the fact that I can reprogram for new channels with add on function and not have to do a full reprogram and lose channels and have to start over like my magnavox. The magnavox is an early model and did not have analog pass through. I should have bought tivax the first time around. The on screen program menu is not the greatest but I bought the converter to watch tv, not to read tv."

  1. I have tried one side-by-side with an (old) Sylvania box and a cheap innomedia converter, and the TIVAX had bar far the worst reception using exactly the same antenna and connections.
