Picture Quality: Picture quality for the Access HD DTA1080D digital TV converter box is solid, approaching that of a DVD player. 

 

Audio Quality: We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – pretty much any digital TV converter box is going to have good sound (rivaling that of a DVD player).  And the Access HD DTA digital TV converter box delivers what you’d expect in this area.

 

Product Features: The Access HD DTA1080D digital TV converter box has a pretty solid feature set, including analog pass-through, electronic program guide, on-box buttons (in case you lose your remote), adjustable closed captioning, composite video, RCA audio, and RF (coaxial) inputs, V-chip, sleep timer, a remote control, coaxial cable, and even 2 AAA batteries!

 

Unfortunately, the Access HD DTA1080D digital TV converter box doesn’t have a smart antenna port or a universal remote control.  This lack stops us from rating the Access as highly as we’d wished.

 

Recommendation: With its workmanlike picture and sound and fairly robust feature set, this is a decent box.  And at $43.99 before your FCC digital converter box coupon, it’s a great value.  If you’re holding out for the best picture or the most bells and whistles, we recommend the Channel Master CM-7000 and the Dish Network DTV Pal.

 

Overall Rating: 7/10
