Small, powerful and simple to set up thanks to the onscreen setup wizard, the Magnavox DTV digital is a great choice for those who are not always at one with technology. The converter box converts digital signals to analog, allowing you to watch TV on any analog TV. This unit supports English, Spanish and French, and is Energy Star compliant. The autoscan automatically detects all available channels, making the Magnavox a cinch to set up.
V-chip parental control allows you to filter out mature content by category (NC-17, R. etc.) and sub-category (violence, foul language, etc.). And if you connect an external hard drive or flash drive, you can perform recording like a DVR.
The Magnavox doesn’t have some of the bells and whistles of the more feature-packed digital to analog converters on the list, but for those looking for a basic converter box that’s easy to use, it could be the best choice. A downside to the Magnavox is that it doesn’t have an HDMI-out, making it a poor choice if you plan to upgrade your TV in the near future. Check Amazon rating »
