The local Shaw's supermarket (Clinton, CT) started selling the Zinwell boxes this week, so I picked one up since it was only $50 (my coupons still haven't come) It only picked up 4 channels, and would only show one channel. At the same time, the Craig box, that I kept set up was showing 4 channels. I'm taking the Zinwell back before they change their minds about letting me return it. I had recommendations that the Zinwell boxes were decent, but for the rural viewer like me, it's about as useful as holding one hand to the back of the TV and the other up in the air. But maybe a note of good news, my local electronics store had reconsidered not selling the boxes at all, and are looking into ordering several models. Hopefuly one of them wll be better than the Craig - a box that does a great job in registering channels, just doesn't do well in actually letting you watch them!!
