    I am very upset, the product is no good.

    Since the transition to digital broadcasting of these set-top boxes, the population has installed more than one hundred, and despite some shortcomings, their main advantage is the image! Since 2022, set-top boxes have begun to freeze en masse, they cannot be repaired, it is difficult to contact the manufacturer! I do not recommend the set-top boxes of this manufacturer, the service life is 1.5-2 years

    • Workmanship, image quality, soft buttons on the remote control, works smartly, price, service
    • A lot of marriage on the remotes - does not work out of the box, also thin plastic - the remote control is easy to break in half, sometimes the sound spontaneously disappears on some channels - auto-tuning helps, the power supply burns, but not often, it can fail in a year, or maybe after five - depends on the voltage

    The product is of poor quality, I do not advise.

    In connection with the above, all the pluses are worth nothing. Unfortunately, this is the third tuner of this company and none of them worked. This time I took a simpler model, the result is the same. Very strange, but I think I'm just unlucky. I took it in a large hypermarket, so I think that there will be no problems with the return.

    The right product for me, the price suited me.

    I took it for the village. It works flawlessly with the old Hitachi TV. The village is 200 km away. from N. Novgorod. Different pros: Inexpensive. Lots of features. Not big. Image quality is good. Operates from indoor antenna. When the satellite does not work, we watch it. Cons below: Of course the remote. Small and flimsy. The rest is tolerable.

    I am delighted, the product is really worthy.

    Despite the shortcomings described, for a thousand, I consider it a good purchase for the top five . For a thousand I got a normal TV set, connected a monitor, speakers, a couple of adapters to the set-top box, HDMI-VGA, Jack 3.5-RCA were required. TV sets are now some kind of broken ones! I have covered myself, a few from relatives, even from acquaintances, they only have time to buy new ones. Whether it's a good old monitor, in which I'm sure for many more years, will plow and plow. In…

    • I took it to use an old VGA monitor as a TV, from an apartment TV cable via DVB-C. Everything works, everything catches, it goes to the Internet, it reads a flash drive. The price is not expensive, prefix och. small, not heated (slightly warm). The menu seems to be convenient, the remote control is also not bad. When you connect the set-top box to the Internet, it itself offers a software ate (and it can be very useful), read the shortcomings. After pressing "OK" a list of channels appears, it is convenient to switch between them using this menu. Shows what kind of transfer and what will be after it and what time. I connected it with an Internet using an old smartphone (as a usb modem), it is also from usb and is recharged at the same time.
    • About 5 channels hung on dvb-c on cable TV, of which IZ. RU, TLC, Spas, etc. I don’t remember. It hung tightly, only turning it off from the outlet helped. After ating the software through a connection to the Internet of the set-top box, the problem was eliminated, there are no more questions, so the drawback essentially disappears. Before the ate, I caught 42 channels, 4 of which were with big noise (squares, pixels), after the ate I caught 38 channels with a good signal, although in theory there should be 50 channels on the TV cable, but it’s possible that on paper it’s always smooth, in fact the antenna may be smaller, not in the know, there is nothing to compare with. Channel switching is slow though, but almost all set-top boxes do this, as far as I know. It does not turn on quickly, maybe 30-40 seconds. I have 2 old WiFi adapters, he simply does not see them, the instructions contain models that are caught.

    As such, there are no disadvantages, it is convenient to use.

    The LUMAX DV-2120 HD receiver was bought to watch TV programs from the Internet via a USB Wi-Fi adapter on a non-smart digital TV. In the set-top box, the Megogo Online Cinema application turned out to be without free-to-air channels, although in the next room Megogo on LG smart TV is received with them. To receive channels after dancing with a tambourine to select a suitable playlist for receiving IPTV, I set up the reception of free-to-air channels. Only one playlist is accepted. The receiver

    • The price of the set-top box + USB Wi-Fi adapter is much lower than the Smart TV set-top box. Although the Smart TV set-top box is much "smarter".
    • "Megogo Online Cinema" was without free-to-air channels

    Revainrating 4 out of 5

    I'm satisfied, it's a good purchase.

    The box is super small. An interesting and useful feature for receiving digital broadcasts. Of course, the built-in applications are just awful - the search does not always work, it is not clear which films are paid on mego go. By the way, in order not to buy a wi-fi adapter, we use the old android as a USB modem. Its pros: Very easy to set up, good quality channels, there is Internet access. Cons: Unfinished built-in applications you tube, mego go, lumax. For some, one USB port will not be…

    Excellent product, the best quality.

    I advise you to buy, no complaints. Especially the remote control - it will be convenient for the elderly, + cinema, YouTube indoors with Wi-Fi. Fixed pointwise from the bottom side with double-sided tape to the surface where it will stand, so as not to accidentally hurt. Built-in Dolby Digital codec for correct sound playback from external media via USB. Responds well to the remote, in a word, an excellent receiver for free digital TV!

    • I perfectly caught two multiplexes on my home antenna, when connected, I caught the channels in automatic mode. The buttons on the remote control are very conveniently located, and the remote control itself is of medium size, even more than average (there are 2 more consoles, bought for parents - there are smaller remotes and the buttons are not so convenient in location). On Wi-Fi, an adapter from another company (was at home) immediately found the network, connected with a password, got access to the cinema and MEGOGO (with free content). I liked it very much!
    • As long as there are no shortcomings

    I met with double standards, when a lot of big words are written on the box and the website, but in reality it is not. In fact, the device turns out to be unusable, the promised multifunctionality does not work, the device is extremely unstable. I do not recommend to purchase. At the same time, the firmware is the latest. Technical support, except by phone on weekdays, is absent

    • 1. Good box with large print 2. Quick setup 3. Multifunctionality 4. Long warranty 5, Good image in full screen
    • 1. Not a single (almost!) video on YouTube works (the owner of this video does not allow it to be played in your country - I get this message all the time when I try to turn on the video), although I tried all the countries from your list, tried different videos. But a friend has this device, it reproduces them. At the same time, the PC and Smartphone reproduce them without problems from all Internet sources without errors in hd. This was very important for me, as it would help a disabled person to watch topical documentaries (at least somehow live without dying of loneliness). 2. In Hong Kong on Rostelecom, cable TV catches a lot of channels, but not all (in dvbc mode). So the Match Country TV channel (included in the basic cable TV package) is not represented. Tried several times in all modes. The channel is very important because it regularly shows sports broadcasts. 3. The Internet is connected via a smartphone via USB, but almost no videos are played, only their names, in services such as Megogo, IPTV, Lumax. Only one movie is included - Officers, and, for example, the Unknown World section of the LUMAX cinema is not played at all (constantly, for long minutes, the circle is spinning and that's it), even the RTRS demo video. 4. The next day, after a long setup of DVB_C cable channels, there was an inscription "no signal" on all previously tuned channels, although the antenna was working. Again, it was not possible to set it up at all, and even after a reboot, the search did not give anything. 5. The previously set time always goes astray at 3:15. Which is confusing. 6. MKV cannot be played on USB media. Although the instructions on the box indicate that it should be played. 7. On DVBT2, on all channels and menu screens, there is a noisy line in the middle of the TV. Displayed only when connected with native tulips. 9. No Dolby Digital sound settings in any of the menus. I tried 2 copies of the same device with current firmware dv2120hd190301903094

    No complaints, I recommend to buy.

    It is strange that the manufacturer's support service could not give me intelligible advice on the problem - I had to wait for an answer here. With its pros. The REMO BAS-5107-5V antenna solved the problem. Taking into account the hassle of replacing the antenna, I lower my rating for the device - but at the moment it suits me. Cons: Not showing any channel. I found, apparently, everything that could be found - not even 20, but 30 channels. But it's worth switching to any - and first it shows…

    This device was received as an exchange to replace a Lumax 3110HD that had died for ten days, which behaved rather strangely from the very beginning - freezing, stopping responding to commands from the remote control and, as a result, kapets. This new one, 2120, of course, is simpler and I had to pay 100 extra, since prices have risen slightly during this time, but for receiving 20 channels from the antenna, it is more than sufficient in terms of functionality. I brought it home, connected it…

    • small size, good packaging, clear instructions
    • not found, details in comments

    Unattractive product, unprofitable purchase.

    - It didn't work initially: it doesn't enter the menu, the characters spontaneously blink on the display, there is only the LUMAX splash screen on the TV screen. I took it back to the store, they gave me a new set, the set-top box works in it, but the remote control does not. Again I went to the store, fortunately, they have not sent the old set yet. One worker was completed from two sets. I checked at home, the set-top box catches cable and terrestrial channels. Let's see how it will work…

    • - small size - catches cable (DVB-C) and terrestrial (DVB-T2) TV - there is a display - AV & HDMI outputs
    • - did not work immediately after the purchase, after the exchange in the store (see comments) the remote control did not work in the second set

    Terrible product, not worth your money absolutely!

    The transition to terrestrial DTV is an obvious lobby for manufacturers of set-top boxes and HDMI cables. By the way, there is no digital cable included in the kit, and the use of digital television without it is pointless. So it turns out that in order to switch to digital, you need to pay at least one and a half thousand for EACH TV. At the same time, out of all the garbage air, a maximum of three channels deserve attention (sports, cartoons for children, a living planet for the whole…

    • failed to identify
    • did not work out of the box. The remote control refused to beep. It was not possible to set up or evaluate.

    Not quite what I wanted, but mostly okay.

    The most common receiver. I took it a year and a half ago based on reviews on the Market for my grandmother. In an ordinary village near the city of Ruza, the MO found 20 channels without problems. Today it won't turn on for no reason. I went to the site, tried to call support, but despite the fact that the site indicates the time interval from 10 to 20 seven days a week - on Saturday at 18-30 no one picked up the phone. On Mon I'll call / go to the SC, we'll see how everything goes.

    • Ease of use. Warranty 2 years.
    • Reliability.

    The quality exceeds all expectations, I recommend to buy.

    I am supplementing on February 26, 2022. An excellent model, once again I am convinced of my choice. Grandmother has been drumming two identical consoles for almost a year. Only pluses! Different pros: Cool thing! Everything set up by itself when you turned it on. I would not have thought from the photo on the net that such a small and neat box. I chose this model, and bought it on 03/22/2022. , Hong Kong. No scorching LEDs, nice green numbers on the display, when turned off, it shows the time.
