5 August 2014
Summary: Not compilable with Direct TV remotes. I even called them to find out what code I should use for my DTV. The guy said that it is proprietary. You MUST use the remote that came with it. All I really cared about programming into my remote was the volume control.
Summary: It has never had the quality of sound my small Panasonic stereo had. Now after a year the quality of sound is so poor I rather listen to things through the TV. The xbox has way better quality. Surround sound is defiantly one of those items that you get what you pay for.
Summary: While still a reasonably good deal, it needed some work. The audio cables to the speakers were mostly stripped - like ripped out of the spring loaded speaker mechanism and I had to re-cut and strip nearly all the wires. It sounds very good now. The volume knob, entirely electronic, skips and doesn't register a few turns - I have resorted to using the wireless remote for essentially all functionality.
Summary: First of alll the USB connection is in the back of the system which makes it very difficult to access. Anyways I got a USB adaptor and it does not work. It still dont work when I put the drive directly into it. The manual says press source and you will see USB on the dispaly and I only see "line". When I press USB nothing happens. I can see that the drive is connected but because the light on the drive flashes.But, no sound.
Summary: Coby home theater DVD system was a good price, arrived soon, and other than the huge yellow sticker on the top of the DVD player that is impossible to get off, it appeared nice. Although 7 months later it stopped working properly. We are unable to watch DVDs for the fact it does not read any and only says "No Disk". It often makes a loud buzz while listening to our Sirius Satellite radio, making us power it off and restarting everything.
Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! I bought this for my husband for our anniversary. He was so excited! we got it all set up and ready to use it! DVD player doesnt work! I looked up the Coby website for troubleshooting issues and found out THIS item is DISCONTINUED because of these issues!! Not only did it not work correctly but we tried a regular DVD and Blueray movie hoping that was the case! It ruiened both brand new DVD's! I am so pissed.
Summary: PURCHASED THIS PRODUCT AND RETURNED IT SOON AS I HEARD THE SOUND QUALITY!!! I HAVE PURCHASED COBY PRODUCTS BEFORE AND THOUGHT SINCE I NEEDED A SOUND QUALITY SYSTEM WHY NOT GIVE THIS ONE A TRY.
