A surprising value for the performance but... Tube Audio/Video - Canton, MI - 3/5/2014 A quick initial impression of a surprisingly excellent value/performance product, but a few details first before I begin. My TV is Sony's excellent 34" XBR960 widescreen HD (1080i) tube TV. This TV has one HDMI input so I use an active 3-1 switch box for the IVIEW 3500stb2 converter box along with my three Blu-ray players, one via component video. I bought two of these IVIEW HD converter boxes for recording local over-the-air broadcasts as I don't have and refuse to pay for cable/sat. This converter offers just what I was looking for, a way to record HD ota broadcasts without being too expensive, but I certainly didn't expect this low of a price. I spent a good 6-7 hours yesterday getting familiar with operating the 'box, its fairly simple to operate, but I did run into an issue with the IVIEW which is the reason for my comment/review, basically this is a heads-up for potential buyers out there as there seems to be no useful info as to what USB devices work well with this 'box, and IVIEW USA doesn't offer any suggestions due to liability issues... I purchased a SanDisk Cruzer Glide 32GB USB flash drive as a medium to record on, I simply like the fact that these devices have no moving parts. After set-up I was very interested to see what the quality of the HD recordings would be, surprisingly, it is very close to what I see from the Sonys built-in HD tuner, especially considering how little there is inside the IVIEW and the seriously cheap parts, but remember that even though I am using WireWorlds top/expensive HDMI cables, that I am also going through two one meter long cables and a 3-1 switch box, I know that when I go direct HDMI-to-Sony TV from my Denon BDP 3800 Blu-Ray player that the picture quality is even better, so I would expect the IVIEW HD picture to be equal to the Sony's when run direct to the TV, amazing considering all those cheap parts, hopefully the reliability is good, and I can always replace those parts when the warranty ends... Now to the issue I had between the IVIEW 3500STBII and the SanDisk Cruzer Glide 32GB USB flash drive. When I first plugged the SanDisk into my IVIEW 'box it showed it to be formatted for FAT32, but when I went to record a program in HD, it would stop every 30 seconds or so and pixelate/macroblock for about a second, then it would be fine again until another 30 seconds or so. I checked to make sure my WineGuard HD 7695P antenna mounted on a Channel Master rotor was aligned for best signal, and I also watched the same program through the Sony TV's tuner that I was recording with the IVIEW to make sure that it wasn't the program itself, it wasn't the program/signal. I then remember reading a review on Google about the IVIEW 3500 from a customer who said he had a problem with his HDD not recording for more than 15 miutes at a time, he found that when he went into the IVIEW 3500STBII menu and reformatted his hard disk drive for NTFS file instead of the FAT32 file format, his problems ended, I found that my pixelating/macroblocking was gone as well, and yes I did go back and try FAT 32 again, the problem returned. I don't know what cased this problem and neither does IVIEW, as they called me this morning to answer another question I had about this converter. I've recorded about 3 hours worth of programs with the 'box set for NTFS format and have seen no further problems, and its very easy to reformat, just select between FAT32 and NTFS files in the menu, I will up-date if anything changes, I hope not, so far so good. I will purchase more 'boxes if they prove to be reliable, I hope this helps others out there, but of course due to many unforeseen variables, I nor SolidSignal can make any guaranties that your results will be the same, IVIEW told me that they would check out this issue and make whatever updates needed, again, a great bang-for-the-buck product for so little money, recommended! PS> I will up-date this review should I learn any useful information, and FYI, a 32GB flash drive is good for about 6 hours of HD recording from what I've seen.
