Holiday Family Bonding with Universal Box

When the whole family is involved in fun activities, you’ll have more opportunities to experience special moments. “Family glue” are those moments that connect your family and build deep, healthy relationships. Spending time together as a family takes planning, but it’s a good investment.

But spending quality time with your loved ones doesn’t have to take on so much time and effort. Sometimes, it’s as simple as gathering in the living room, with a special digital box, that gives more shows, more songs, more laughter, and more memories to share!

Universal Box Mega Multimedia Player is a 6-in-1 digital set top box. It is a first of its kind in the Philippines that functions as a DTV, Bluetooth speaker, Karaoke, FM Radio, PVR, and multimedia player.

U-Box is not that bulky nor heavy with its size of (LxWxH) 25.5 x 12 x 14.5 cm. and weight of only 1.21kg. Available in black, mahogany and ash brown colors, the first thing noticeable in U-Box is its old-school build of wood that covers the entire box. The front is occupied with volume knob and speakers that take up the left side, giving it a vintage feel. Top right part has a USB port for karaoke and media files as well as an LED tuner for radio and playback. Lastly, you will see the karaoke port complete with mic volume and echo or reverb for effects.

At the backside, you will find the antenna for the radio and the power switch below directly above the coaxial port for the digital TV antenna. The U-Box also includes an HDMI port, RCA, left and right audio port for extension and the DC in port for power.

Setting up is as simple as plugging in the power cable, screwing in the coaxial cable, and the video and audio out of choice. Some aspects of the function of the Universal box rely on the remote control included. The manual (written in Tagalog) will easily help you in figuring out the buttons for choosing which feature you wish to cue up.

The 6 features of the U-Box Perfect for Family Bonding:

Digital TV Programming. Catch your family favorite show or scan for free TV channels available in your area. With the right signal strength and connected to HDMI port, the U-Box receives and delivers clear HD pictures. Just pick the great TV shows and you are all good for perfect any day family bonding.

Personal Video Recorder (PVR). It is equipped with a PVR function that allows you to record (via USB) and playback your family favorite shows. Even when you’re not around, you can set the channel and the time when the PVR should start recording, and watch it later together with the entire family. It needs to be set-up with a hard disk drive so the digital box will have somewhere to save to.

Real time FM radio. With scanning in tow, the radio works much like any other radio available. Now you can listen altogether to your well-loved radio jock, or even call the radio station and request to play your family favorite dance songs.

USB multimedia player. Plug-in your USB flash drive to play videos and movies.  Alternate between “parents pick” and “kids pick” to choose your film. Set the mood with theme decorations, pop some corn, get cozy and let movie magic take you away. Perfect for family weekend bonding!

Karaoke function. The two-way karaoke function lets you enjoy your karaoke via USB flash drive or mobile Bluetooth. Karaoke is an amazing way to bring your family together to do something creative, meaningful, and fun. Just make sure all members get an equal chance to solo, sing duets and to participate in group sing alongs.

Bluetooth audio player.  This speaker feature is as simple as playing audio files straight from your smart devices via Bluetooth. No need to dock your device to select, play or control the volume. Through this function, you will enjoy introducing your kids to the “oldies” that you grew up with, or learn modern songs from your kids’ personal audio playlists. What a wonderful way to create some lasting memories for your family!
