So far, so good November 11, 2016
Reviewer: Grandmom from King George, VA  
Bought this to replace CM7000 which died after years of dependable use. Tried to buy 2nd CM7000 for a 2nd TV a few years ago. It had been replaced by the CM7400. Awful experience. The unit kept failing and overheating despite ample ventilation. Got it replaced under warranty. Same song, second verse. By then, the warranty had expired and we got tired of going through all of the hoops to have it replaced/serviced. So, we gave up and bought a TiVo. When the CM7000 finally failed, we needed a DVR for the 2nd TV.  Living out in the country with unreliable and metered wifi, another TiVo was not an option. Skeptical about giving this latest DVR a chance after the CM7400 fiasco, but read good reviews. Thrilled so far! It is hooked up to a 2 TB drive, and seems to be working perfectly. Easy setup. No heat problems. I am cautiously optimistic and delighted with no monthly fees.  Only time will tell if this unit gives us the many years of reliable service that we enjoyed from the CM7000.

7500 Model November 11, 2016
Reviewer: Ross from Penfield NY  
I had the model 7000 and it failed after 5 years, so I am a little nervous with the new model.  So far it is working great and there is no alternative so I hope this one will last longer.

DVR+16GB November 11, 2016
Reviewer: pc from Michigan  
The two tuners give you a lot of options to watch and record. The one issue I have though is that the External Hard Drive does not shut down or go to stand by status when the DVR is turned to standby and is on 24/7.  If you have the DVR set up to record programs, the DVR does not shut down completely and will go to standby mode.  I contacted both Chanel Master and Seagate and neither one had a solution to this.  Seagate does have a shut down or standby mode, but when the DVR reformates the EHD, it wipes out the EHD standby mode feature.  Apparently the only way to have the EHD go to standby mode is if the DVR's software is programmed to do so.  When I discussed this with Channel Master, they advised that they would submit this issue to their engineering department to consider a fix.  I have to give high marks to both Seagate and Channel Master for their tech support! I would have given a 5 star if it was not for this issue.

Really Good but... November 11, 2016
Reviewer: Brett G from Michigan  
Unit works well but software still in need of polish... Software has already updated since I bought the unit so I'm expecting great things.  Netflix or Amazon Prime integration would be a nice touch.

From a Cable Cutter November 11, 2016
Reviewer: SteveH from Mesa, AZ  
I'm impressed. This tiny package provides as much performance as the clunky DVR cable boxes.  
If I could ask for improvements I would suggest a more sophisticated recording section. Deleting a watched program takes several clicks, as do the other routines. And, unless I've missed something, there is no way to search for programs other than scrolling page by page. Might learn more after I've had it for a while.
