Performance

I previously was using a computer with a PCI card to receive Over The Air HDTV signals. The Humax provides much better reception. With a rooftop antenna I have 90-100% signal strength on every available station. Setup was simple and straight forward. I'm currently using the analog VGA connector to my TV, picture quality is great. I also tried the component video output. I was not able to discern any significant difference on my 720p 50" TV. I was able to program the remote to perform all the necessary functions on my TV (power and changing inputs). Overall, very satisfied with this product. I'm considering purchasing another for my smaller non-HD tv.

-David quote

As I said in the headline, I was a skeptic. Having lived with no cable or satellite TV all these years, and nothin but a crappy rabbit ears antenna, I thought why the hell not give this a shot. I purchased the Humax HD and DTV reciever from buy.com, which by the way has the best price. I purchased it for my Infocus SP5000 HDTV projector and also purchased several antennas, both indoor and outdoor. With my Zenith medium range outdoor, I now recieve all my local channels including some I never recieved before. They all come in perfect, all 22 of them. I'm now interested in Frontline and Nova because they come in HD. Conan, Oprah, Jay Leno, several sporting events, and a ton more programming comes in HD than I ever expected--and if not HD, then still digital. I have to say, the Humax HFA100 changed the way I watch TV. Now the whole family gathers to watch sporting events on the big screen, the 100" -By the way, if anyone can tell me how to wire a coaxial cable into the house without drilling a hole I would appreciate it.-
