I sifted through the 3 layers of boxes and found the latest units based on manufacture month and serial number, and they happen to be consecutive serials:

806SHxx100617, 806SHxx100618, 806SHxx100619 (all June 2008)

All units are DTT901 (CUSALZK) 85E02561 models.

For those following such data your models have a 2561 production code. In order to arrive at the actual production sequence one must subtract 100,000 from the serial number. That means that your Zeniths were the 617th, 618th and 619th produced in June, probably on June 1st.

If it's like my subdivision, UHF antennas have started to sprout on houses again as folks have discovered they can get some free HDTV on their fancy new sets that way. Here's hoping that happens in your area, and there is safety in numbers.

I shake my head at those boilerplate HOA rules... ours limits the townhomes (not sure about the single family homes) to 18-inch or smaller satellite dish antennas. Right. Have you seen the size dishes that D* and E* put in these days to handle their constellation of satellites? Sure is more than 18 inches.
Not to mention that some of the townhouses have three or more satellite dishes now. But one OTA antenna is too much of an eyesore.

Sorry to wander off-topic a bit.

FCC says it's OK to erect antennas where necessary:

...although there are a few restrictions allowed, if it goes on a common area like a roof, eg, or for safety reasons.

I like our DTT901.

By my choice, our antennae are in our attic. (Terk TV55 and TerrestrialDigital DB8) They are on a common plastic pipe 'mast'. Three of our DTV stations will revert back to VHF 17Feb2009. I hope our set up works then.

There are many 'dishes' some houses with at least three. I remember at least one home with a fairly low profile TV antenna. There are also a fair number of houses with wireless internet antennae. I have not heard any complaints from our HOA which is probably only about a half dozen years old.

To the ones that have done comparisions, is there agreement that the 901 is less sensistive than the 900 due to the addition of APT?

Can't believe you people swamp towards those HOA's.

300 ohm has hit it right on the money!! I personally cannot detect any noticable difference in sensitivity between the 2 units. It's that close. They are both excellent!! I just purchased a new LG HDTV and it cannot match the performance of either CECB on marginal stations.

not always lack of authority...sometimes, like in my case, its lack of ability. If you cant get up on your roof to install one for whatever reason (multiple story home w/no ladder tall enough, likely weak spots in the roof, etc), and "antenna installers" are few in numbers anymore, you kind of have to go with an internal one or low mounted outdoor one (like the MANT910 or RS version).

At any rate, I'm thinking about going to get a 900 or 901 with my other coupons I have left. I was gonna get a couple of RCA boxes b/c 2 of the TV's I have are RCA, making controlling them with 1 remote a lot simpler...however I've heard complaints about the signal meter/tuner strength. PQ and signal strength trump using only one remote (after all I'm sure they'll make, if they havent already started, a universal remote to control the CECB's along with TV's. It's just a shame the 900/901's dont have S-video. Maybe someone will figure out a way to hack a 901 and add a S-video port.

I can't really tell much difference, either, and the difference favors the 901! When I hooked them up side by side, flipping between vid1 and vid3 to compare, I thought PQ was cleaner on the 901, and the stereo separation was definitely more prominent and didn't have the big sound difference between mono and stereo, or between tv and dvd sound. Lately I've seen some color artifacts on the 901, smearing out high intensity reds. It's on a lower quality station, ION, which has 4 subchannels. I may have them on the 900 and just wasn't as sensitive to them yet. There are a few sound things I don't like about the 901, it seems like it lops off some sound, instantly dampening, it loses its accoustic vibration. There have been a few times when the volume unexplicably goes very soft and then builds back up in volume. It's probably part of the fix, but were it not for the chirp, I miss the fuller, more 'colorful' sound of the 900 now and then. Over the next couple weeks, with the 901 it seemed like I had fewer dropoffs in the late afternoon where one signal is strong but wavers. But a few more weeks later, the wavering is back, so I can't say for sure that the 901 is better with that wavering signal. Except for the initial side by side, it's all subjective, but I do favor the 901, all things considered.

ETA: I hear my sound through 3-5 speakers with a very old Sony pro logic dolby receiver. The main speakers are klipsch. The cecb is not hooked up to the receiver directly.

I returned the RCA DTA800B1 which had a serial number ending in 204A6*** for the same model ending in 216A1***. No improvement in tuner performance. Though my language may have been too harsh on the DTA800B1 in my original comparison.

There were also serial numbers with 205A**** and 212A**** and 215A****.

If that makes sense to anybody.

Im pretty sure those all all station/network related issues, especially ION. My ION station is like that too, and last night I was watching a distant ION channel that also did the same, so its their network. Other stations havent gotten the hang of volume control either, and I dont think the FCC enforces that sound issue like they should.

If you really need S-video out because of the lack of other inputs, Walmart sells a Phillips device that converts one type of input to another. It wont help the quality though, cause garbage in garbage out, heh.

I have also had sound issues since I got this box. I used to never have to change the sound when changing channels on my Panasonic stereo TV, but now I'm constantly adjusting the settings. Even when on the same channel, the sound levels and quality can change depending on the program content. Is this the box or station causing this?

I've noticed it happening when my station switches from the national feed to a local feed. Since it is far more quiet than the national feed, I actually like it. I don't want to hear the commercials!

I ordered 2 901 from watchdigitaltv.com on 7/14. Shipped 7/15 & they are scheduled for UPS delivery 7/18. He had only a few & is now out of them.

Our CC closed 2 years ago & couldn't find elsewhere. Wonder where all those 400-500K units per month are going?

This box is amazing. Picked up yesterday at CC and not much time to experiment. Connected to 12" 1980 Sony bedroom set using RF cable. Paper clip antenna. Picks up same stations as Tivo 3 in family room connected to CM4221 in attic. Very stable. I like it!

The Zeniths are probably being stockpiled in CC warehouses for the big "Switch Over to Digital TV" sale in February 2009 where they will be "specially priced at $89.99 (only $49.99 with government coupon)" and entry level (CRT) TVs (currently priced around $149.99 at BB) will be priced at $189.99 (by CC). This sale may prop up the sagging CC chain and enable them to avoid a "Going Out of Business" sale; thus staving off takeover bids from Montgomery Ward and CompUsa, and allowing CC to merge with Sears/KMart. (Remember, you first heard this here.)

In the dark the Zenith's LED resembles the light appearing behind Gort's visor just before someone or something gets zapped. "Klaatu Barada Nikto!"

CompUSA will live on, thanks to a deal with electronics marketer Systemax. Systemax, which owns popular computer parts reseller (and CompUSA competitor) TigerDirect, announced yesterday that it has entered into an agreement to purchase the CompUSA brand, trademarks, and e-commerce business. It also plans to acquire select assets and retail stores from the company, and says that it expects to close various parts of the deal throughout the first quarter of the year.

I did exchange my 901 for a different 901, due to a minor flaw. For whatever reason, the menu text was messed up on the first one. The center of characters would start out OK, and then change to distorted. Only menu text. CC text was fine. I swapped the boxes anyway. Why live with the funky text?

I have fuzzy distorted text on my 900 April build, Sanyo tuner Zenith.

If I had to choose between the 2, Id probably keep the 901, because of the sound level issues (which I havent confirmed personally) and the distorted menu text(on the 900 that I have). The tuner sensitivity is that close. I like that the Sanyo 900 locked that one station, but I also like that the 901 hesitates on more channels.

I havent compared image or video quality.

Just exchanged my defective audio Insignia NS-DXA1 for a June 2008 Insignia NS-DXA1-APT. Be warned that it seems like only a few stores have the APT in-stock. Anyway if you want to exchange your Apex or NS-DXA1 or you cannot find the Zenith, you might want to check your local Bestbuy.

That's news. The Insignia NS-DXA1-APT must have just been listed on the NTIA CECB list. I didn't notice it until today!
