This box works great. If you are a cord cutter and want a "digital vcr" this is perfect. It even has a free program guide for channels. The price is excellent as well. Record broadcast TV or use it as a tuner box for an older TV. Plays pictures and other media from usb too.

This is exactly what I was looking for: something like the good 'ol VCR's we used to have! You record OTA TV shows and watch them later. That's it, no Cable or Dish service to sign up for. It not only has the Tuner, but lets you see the shows coming up for the next week, pretty cool. I plugged in a 32GB flash drive and I get 4+ hours of recording time. Will probably add a portable HD once I use it more. The only cons I have are the placement of some of the key buttons like Play, Pause, Stop. Also, you have to drill down through some older looking screens to get to the playback list. But you get HD quality at a great price. I would recommend also buying an HDMI cord as it only comes with RCA cord. Also order an Antenna so you can record on this while you watch another show on your TV's tuner, instead of using the pass through connection. That's what I did. If you want to Pause & Record OTA TV, this is your device at under $50 bucks!

This is quite an amazing device. Although I had no need for an ATSC converter box, the idea of using it as a DVR appealed to me. Setup was very fast. I put a 16Gb thumb drive in the USB port and it did a wonderful job of recording in HD. Subsequently, I added a 500Gb portable drive and it works wonderfully. This is really a fine product.

Could not get this box to successfully work with a Dish cable that was a break out for a second TV from a DVD receiver. Signal was actually downgraded slightly over just connecting to cable by itself. Box said NO QAM tuner but did not see this in the description(May have been there though). Probably works okay with an antenna in a metropolitan area. I live in a very rural area.

This unit is one of the best I have used for recording off the air broadcast. I use a usb 16gigabyte flash and get about 2 and 1/2 hours of recording. It does record in HD so the files can be rather big. For the money it is a good deal.

This device is worth its weight in gold to anyone who has discovered the broadcast content Internet access device known as Slingbox. With this "DVR", one is able to search, and look up the on-screen remote "bin" file and be able to view the OTA broadcasts in the Los Angeles market on their computer, tablet or smartphone anywhere in the world where one has an Internet connection. Just awesome.

Works fine for watching TV, but have not had much luck with the DVR or time shifting. Errors out a lot or stutters. Tried with a thumbdrive and external HDD. The remote is really sensitive, has to be pointed straight at the unit. Since my TV's built in tuner went bad (Vizio) I use this to get the OTA channels now.

This is an unbelievable value. I'm tired of paying the big cable TV bill and am cutting over to OTA TV. However the loss of DVR functionality and losing the program guide that comes with cable TV was a problem. No more - this sweet unit outputs an HD picture (via HDMI or component) or a regular composite picture if your TV is pre-HD. It's also a DVR - you need to provide your own USB HD, which I did for $75 for a Seagate provide 1TB of storage (obscene overkill, but hey, it was only $75!!). It also pulls the electronic program guide down OTA. Simply select the program you want to record and it does so. Or simply use it to pause the show you're watching. The only downside is that it has one tuner, so you can't watch one show while recording another. A small nit indeed. This box is the best bang-per-buck I've had in a long time and solved all my OTA needs. Thanks Meritline!!

I purchased this unit for the PVR function. With the USB port it makes recording to an external hard drive simple. I plugged in a flash drive just to check out the recording quality and was very impressed with the video I recorded off my outside antennae. A PVR with the hard drive installed in the PVR will cost you a couple hundred dollars. I purchased this for less than $40 and hooked up an external hard drive that I already own and it is a winner combination.

Amazing value! As others have said, the UI and remote aren't the most intuitive, but that's where my complaints end. I was looking for a DVR to record ATSC broadcasts, but didn't want to spend a fortune or deal with a subscription service. I got the HW-150PVR, plugged an old external hard drive I had into the USB, and it does everything I wanted at a great price. The tuner gets better reception than the one in my TV. Using the HDMI output, the picture looks great both live and during playback. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a basic ATSC DVR who has anything above an ipod level of patience/aptitude for electronics.
