Solid Performer Philco TB100HH9 Review

The Philco TB100HH9 is a solid performer and has been around for a long time. This longevity is testament to its quality and feature set.

This box gets great marks for its inexpensive cost - especially if you use your government rebate coupon. This is a good solid box that qualifies as a Coupon Eligible Converter Box (CECB). It's relatively easy to setup, however you must be sure to pay attention to the directions and follow them. The directions will guide you through the steps and show you the little features that make this box shine. A few minutes spent reading will pay off in dividends down the road.

Other features include a signal strength meter. Use this meter to adjust your antenna for maximum performance.

This box also has analog passthru so you can receive those low power public service stations.

About the only downside is the remote control. Its buttons are soft and mushy feeling with little tactile feedback. The remote is necessary for the operation of this unit as there are no buttons on the main box so if you lose the remote, you will be out one converter box. If you have a
universal remote, program it to operate the box and stash the included remote away.

Aside from the remote, this unit performs very well. Its picture quality is great and the signal strength meter make this a good investment.
