Our take on the Accele DTV200 Digital Dual TV Tuner

by Buck Pomerantz

Accele's Dual Digital TV Tuner lets you and your family enjoy over-the-air TV while traveling. This digital tuner and antenna system gets your favorite shows via standard digital TV broadcast signals when you're camping or tailgating, or from select TV stations using ATSC-MH mobile signals when you're on the go.

The compact tuner installs under a seat or in an out-of-the-way place, while you control it with the wireless remote. The tuner also features a USB input, so you can watch other video devices through your system. The antenna comes with a strong magnetic base for secure attachment to your vehicle, and Accele includes all the power and audio/video cables you need for installation.

Dual Digital TV Tuner: The AcceleVision DTV-200 is equipped with both an ATSC and ATSC-M/H tuner. The mobile ATSC-M/H digital TV tuner allows you to tune in mobile digital TV stations inside your vehicle, around select cities broadcasting mobile DTV (Mobile DTV Station Guide) while on the go. The built-in ATSC tuner provides standard over-the-air digital TV stations, that you are familiar with in your home, inside your vehicle when your vehicle is parked.

Hide-Away Digital Tuner Module: The dual digital TV tuner module is designed to be hidden away inside your vehicle. It connects to your vehicle's in-dash, overhead, or headrest monitor via composite video and stereo RCA (A/V cable included).

Magnetic Antenna: The AcceleVision Dual Digital TV Tuner includes an external pole antenna with a magnetic base. The antenna is designed to be mounted on the roof or trunk of your vehicle.

Power/Ground Harness: The AcceleVision Dual Digital TV Tuner includes a 10' power/ground harness which needs to be connected to your vehicle's electrical system.

Controls

Remote Control: The AcceleVision Dual Digital TV Tuner comes supplied with an IR wireless remote control and external IR receiver. The IR receiver plugs into the hide-away tuner's Remote (3.5mm) input and allows you to wirelessly operate the hide-away digital TV tuner with the included IR remote. The remote has an operating range of 10' at a 25° angle. The remote operates off of a single CR2025 3V lithium battery (included).

Multilingual Menu: You can select between English or Spanish text for the tuner's on-screen menu.

Signal Meter: The tuner's Signal Meter lets you view the antenna signal strength.

Channel Scan: When you use the DTV-200 dual digital TV tuner for the first time, you will need to "Scan" for available stations in your area. When you have finished the channel scan, the channel data will be stored in the receiver. When you move to another area outside of the original "channel-scan" range, you will need to re-scan the tuner module for stations in your current area.

DTV200/Accele-DTV200-Digital-Dual-TV-Tuner

Written By owl, alabama on Wednesday, January 11, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Tuner was delivered today. Wired power harness to a cigarette lighter plug. Plugged rca cables to tuner and 9" lcd display. Ran auto scan found 6 dtv channels. I was watching the off air tv in less than 30 minutes. Reception was good. Picture and sound was solid. Scanned for MH channels but none in my area. This product performs as advertised. ATSC channels works great while parked. I will check out the ATSC-MH function on my next trip where ATSC-MH channels are available. Appears to be a solid product at a fair price.
Pros:
easy setup good reception fair price
Cons:
none so far
