Xenon DTV4900 ISDB-T Digital TV Receiver (Review)


     I recently bought a Digital TV Box and here's my late review of it. There are dozens of TV receivers from Lazada but I chose this one because it has some features that other receivers doesn't. The main feature I liked about xenon is that, you can record a tv show even if your TV is turned off! Of course the tv box should be on AND you should have a storage drive placed on the receivers USD port. I haven't tried it but I've read some comments from lazada that his/her 1TB external hard drive works. You just need to set it up in a specific time where you want it to record. You can even play and pause your TV. It records automatically when you pause it.

     But here's my problem. I wasn't able to research about the list of digital television stations in the Philippines. And I just found out that my place is not supported yet. So, I cannot receive any signals and I wasn't able to use it. Right now, I'll just keep it first and wait for an update. Hopefully soon.

See list of the stations and location here : List of digital television stations in the Philippines.

    1. Hi, sorry I do not know that. I bought this so I can have TV channels but sadly, digital signal is not available on our location. So, I did not bother for it's other functions.

  2. Hi, read your blog and noticed about your issue of not getting channel signals in your location. Where do you live? I do have one and live in Cavite. I did had the same problem like yours but when I had my magnet mounted antenna mounted outside I did got at least Channels 2,7,13,UNTV and others like Beam and all. of coarse scrambled channels too.

    1. Hello,

      Thanks for visiting my blog. I live in Kalibo, Aklan. I made some research and found out that digital signal is still not available here in my location. Only in Iloilo. Have already tried to put the antenna as high as possible and outside my house too. Still no luck. I guess I just have to wait longer.

  3. if you don't mind where did you buy that tv box? I'm trying to search that exact model you reviewed on lazada but only the xenon dtv-950 was on the results. i prefer to use that model you reviewed because it uses 12v-1amp adapter which i can purchase a usb to dc adapter as an alternative.
