Digital TV For Your Car

September 18, 2013

While sitting still, this digital t.v. tuner, for your Farenheit Car Stereo, will work just as good as your digital tuner/antenna, in your house. Im on the east coast, and it gets a fair amount of channels, even telemundo. I would say it gets at least 20 channels, I neglect to count. I would recommend this product to anyone who catch themselves sitting in the car waiting on other people more than usual. At times, I do wish it worked while I am driving. The picture messes up while driving, so does the sound. There is another DTV tuner for your Farenheit Radio, it begins with an "M"; i believe its the MUH/MHU not sure, but it supposedly works while driving. I would never tell one to watch T.V. while driving, but its ok to be able to listen to T.V. while driving. :D Works well while sitting, save your money and get the better one, the MUH/MHU tuner. I will get the better tuner later.

Great for the money!

November 18, 2012

Worked great while I had it. Only works at extremely low speed/stopped or parked. I received about 20 channels and used it to watch the local news every morning. I would still be using it today except my video head unit was stolen.

Good Product - Vehicle Needs to Be Stationary

April 9, 2012

The tuner picks up stations well with the included antenna. I had hoped it could keep signal a little better with the vehicle moving, but at more than a couple miles an hour, I had no luck. It seems almost all products in this category are the same. It is a nice item though for when you are not moving.

Digital ATSC TV Tuner for your in-car receiver

January 12, 2012

Wiring hookups are short so you must find a suitable location very close to your receiver, inside or just under the dash. The included unpowered long antenna can be routed under the carpet and seats to the rear window, but be careful mounting the dual suctions cups near any defroster wires. The included remote makes it easy to tune and scan, and works with a dash mounted infrared eye. Sadly, our USA ATSC digital TV signals are not designed for moving vehicles, so reception is spotty while on the move and works much better when parked. I added this unit to work with my existing DVD NTSC TV in-dash receiver, and used the included Aux-In AV wires to connect to this unit.
