One year into OTA. With channelmaster September 5, 2017
Reviewer: Gary from Fort Frances  
Works about 80% of the time. Software hasn't been updated since I got it. Tv scans more channels than the channelmaster does. This is not a defect however. We do not watch a bunch of tv so not a big deal. Overall about what I expected.

Great start to cutting the cord. November 11, 2016
Reviewer: Isaac from Kansas City, Missouri  
This package had everything we needed to START cutting the cord; especially since my wife insisted we must have DVR.  It was easy to install and we were watching and DVR'ing network TV in 30 minutes.  We upgraded a few things the first week we used it:  the flatenna worked, but didn't quite have the advertised range. We upgraded to an amplified indoor antenna from Wal-Mart almost immediately to get channels from a tower about 20 miles away.  We had to get an external hard drive for the DVR  (This model only has about 1.5 hours worth of memory).  The integration with Sling TV still needs a little improvement, but it works and the whole system is on schedule to pay for itself in less than 4 months.  I would recommend this to a friend.

Channel Master DVR October 27, 2016
Reviewer: Jeff Tipke from Upstate New York  
Thank you so much for all the thought you have put into making the Channel Master DVR. 5 Minutes to set up, another 5 minutes to scan for TV and internet channels and you are done. I live 40 miles from Albany with mountains in the way and I receive 20 local TV channels with an antenna attached to my old Dish TV pipe and wire . The FREE TV guide looks and operates just like the cable version, we are recording a series of shows 14 days out.  My wife was not thrilled  about cutting the cable but let me go ahead and try, we are both, never going back to paying for TV ever again. Can I give a 6 star rating ? Thanks again.

Love the DVR+ September 29, 2016
Reviewer: Pat from Paducah, KY  
I am very happy with the DVR+. It was very easy to set up.  It scanned and found all the channels when attached to my antenna. Very easy to record one show or a series. Program listing is awesome and free. If anyone wants to cut the cord and still record - this is the answer.

Channel Master DVR+ July 25, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from St. Louis  
The Channel Master DVR+ performs as advertised. I live 20 miles away from most of the TV towers and I'm able to pick up all of the local TV stations with the antenna that was included in the "starter package". I have the DVR wired for the internet and it works great. The package included a usb Wi-Fi adapter if you are not able to connect with an Ethernet cable. Prior to having Channel Master, I was paying around $80 a month for cable just so I could watch baseball and AMC. Plus there was the hassle of every year of having to haggle over getting a good rate. With Channel Master and $20 a month subscription to SlingTV, I can watch local baseball and shows on AMC. The set up was easy and the remote is familiar and easy to use. I have not used the recorder much, I have an external HD connected to the DVR, but it seems to function like the the recorder on the cable DVR. One thing to keep in mind is that you can not record streaming content from SlingTV, only antenna TV content.
