I received the box from a friend because she could not get any channels when using it. I can get four channels; three are PBS stations and one is an audio channel. It is not able to even pick up are local channels for CBS, NBC, or ABC. I hoped to use it in my bedroom, but my three public TV channels go off the air before I head to my bedroom. This thing is not anywhere worth the frustration it causes.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
