GPX TL909B 9-Inch Portable LCD TV

Technical Details
Digital & Analog Tuner
Cable Signal Receive Function
Built-In Speakers
Ac/Dc Power With Built-In Rechargeable Battery

Product Description
Gpx Tl909B 9" Portable Lcd Television gives you the ability to enjoy your favorite television programs anywhere, any time--in your home or away. Watch the morning news without having to get out of bed, or while sun bathing in the back yard. Does someone else have dibs on the TV room? Pull out your digtal TV, and you've got your own TV room. This handy little portable TV has a LCD screen that switches between a 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratio.

It has a built-in ATSC/NTSC tuner with detachable antenna enabling you to receive crisp reception of your favorite channels - even after the digital-to-analog switch in June 2009. Watch with others using the built-in twin speaker system, or plug your headphones into the included jack to enjoy your favorite programs without disturbing those around you. Note: Reception of over the air signal depends on your location. Lack of reception does not indicate a defective product, but merely a weak transmission signal. Try moving the unit to another location, or connecting to cable, satellite, external or an indoor antenna


What are the best GPX, LCD televisions?
Also...

From one of the reviews that OP linked to:

Out of the box the unit searched for over the air broadcasts and put them in memory. Both SD and 1080i reception is available and works well from the antenna.

It also says analog/HD tuners in the specs on that same link. So it apparently does have both tuners.

Here's a link to one of them GPX TL909B 9" Compact Television TL909 B&H Photo Video
That item (No longer available), is a portable TV which will pick up local "over the air" TV signals. You can also input baseband audio and video signals, such as from camcorders... They are popular with videographers.

Can someone tell me what kind of channels you would get with something like this?
If you want to know how many channels it may pickup, just connect an antenna to your home HDTV. Set your TV to Antenna input and place the antenna near a window.

As to the device itself, the internal antenna is fine when using it outdoors. But when its used indoors it can't hold the over the air signal and freezes/pixelats often. For indoor use you'd need to use an external antenna. I have the Coby which I use when we have power outtages.
