The only thing you can evaluate with this box is reception issues. Judging visual quality of DTV with an NTSC box is a fool's exercise, not unlike talking about how the advent of color affected black and white televisions.

That may be true with RF outputy. But judging visual quality of DTV with a box
using S-video or even baseband NTSC is not silly. Baseband NTSC can be
enormously better than broadcast NTSC, because the bandwidth, both luma and
color, can be much larger than broadcast. It can and should look as good
as the very very best ordinary (not HD) DVDs. And, at least
here where I live, it sometimes does.
