If you want a DVR to use with Over The Air TV, you can buy this or TiVo. The TiVo costs slightly less, but you sign on for a hefty monthly fee. the end result is significantly more money. This unit is ready to go out of the box, and there is no monthly fee.
Programming is easy, and the unit works flawlessly. If TV Guide OTA is not available in your market, the programming is a little more involved, but not enough to matter.
If you are a total technophobe, buy the TiVo. The monthly fee will give you an idiotproof experience. However, I use OTA to avoid the fees (Which always seem to go up.) so, buying the Channel Master was easy.
No issues. Highly recommended. No regrets.
If you do not have a DVR, or if you divorced cable/dish and have DVR withdrawal, strongly consider this DVR.
