I have a Channel Master CM-7000 which is the only sensible CECB tuner in my book. While not perfect, it is less flawed than any other model out there - especially if you are after performance.


So I was wondering what to get with my 2nd coupon: Apex? DTVPal? Zenith? Sansonic?


And you know what, they all really suck when it comes to performance and features.


So, what is the cheapest POS I can buy locally? Rite Aid wants $69 for their Memorex which is a joke. (Maybe check other drug stores, eh?)


We need Big Lots to bring something really crappy to the table!

Appears Target has a $49 Venturer which has some really bad reviews like.... it basically doesn't work. (I guess with these CECB boxes, there is no limit to how crappy they can be....)

If you let us know what locality you are in it would be easier for someone in your area to give you advice.


In the Pacific Northwest the Bi-Mart stores, when they have any stock to sell, have the Zenith DTT901 (with analog RF pass through and corrected audio) for $49.99. This is a great product at the best price. There is no sales tax in Oregon.

If you feel that way about all other models, you'll just end up regretting that you bought something else just to save $10 or $20, so get another Channel Master CM-7000.


For my purposes, the Magnavox TB-100MG9 has a poorly designed remote and too many features are buried several levels deep in the menus and you never know whether a sideways move in the menu system should be done with the cursor key or with OK to go right and RETURN to go left; but it's the only model I could buy locally that can send the tuned digital channel out the A/V jacks while passing RF through the RF output at the same time.  It's also the least expensive box I've bought.
