Thank you

The best OTA DVR on the market. So happy you brought a good thing back. The tuner is by far the best I have seen.

Excellent product

Great way to record OTA programs without a subscription service. Love the channel guide as well.

Great Product

I have 2 Channel Master DVR’s, one with external HD 1TB and 1 with it built into the unit for a over a year. Both work perfect, 1 is hard line and 1 connected via Wifi. This product is great, had Directtv for 10 plus years, cut the cable to the dish and save $90 per month. Do I miss directtv, NO. Recordings on my Channel Master and Vudu, NetFlix, Movies Anywhere & Hulu, I have more options than ever!
Cut the cable and buy this setup, 1 time cost and more than worth it investment…..

very happy

have been using it for a few months now and quite happy with its performance. added my own hard drive and using it with the $10 channel master antenna to grab network shows when i'm out. think i will try adding the new smart antenna+ when its available, with hope of wider reception.

Cable Buster

Have been using for 7 months and I cannot say enough great things about it. Had spare 5TB drive that I am using and no problems.
