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.

My device working fine at least from antenna and quality of recording video same as I see on TV screen. My problem is: its not record video stream from cable box, just bypass it to TV. It even doesn't see the cable box when search channels. Maybe this feature not built-in or maybe I cannot find how to do it. BTW, any advise how to do it you can send me directly to ohheoh-at-mail.ru

Here's what it does: Catches free program guide off the air. You may have to exit ane re-enter EPG mode to get info to load. Program info is transmitted sporadically. Not the unit's fault. Records a Beautiful noise-free OTA signal in perfect resolution. Good antenna is recommended, as always. One of those external USB hard drives works best. Solid state drives are too slow; not enough storage space. Remote is adequate, not perfect. I use a Logitech; works great. Records or plays one program at a time - it's not a Tivo. Has lots of back panel signal outputs. If you are not tech savvy or have no patience, pay through the nose for cable instead. Best overall OTA PVR I have found. Fantastic price.

This is a much better quality product than the competitor's. I bought one from other site for a few dollars less and regret everyday. The remote control from the competitor was a piece of junk, it works on and off. This product is worth the money for the same functions.

I recently got rid of cable TV, got a good antenna and now only watch OTA (mostly PBS). I was looking for a way to record in HD and be able to play back the same resolution on my HDTV. This is just what I needed! I already had an external USB drive and I like the choice of what to record on. In playback, the picture and sound seem to be exactly what I would be viewing OTA. I set it up so that the signal is passed through to the TV so I can record one station while watching another from the TV's own turner. I have not tried the time shifting, so I can't comment on that. My only small complaints would be the remote and programming: You have to point it carefully at the unit and some of the buttons are very slow to respond; the buttons on the bottom half are small and look the same with very small print to identify them. Programming is also a little awkward since it uses military time and reverts back to the 1st channel when programming another show. But for the price, you can't beat it!

You can't go wrong with this ATSC PVR for the money. HDMI output at 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, or 1080P whatever you choose. Time shifting (pause live TV), one touch record, or record from EPG menu. Dolby 5.1 sound from either HDMI or digital coax audio out. Record/playback in High def or standard def whatever the TV program is broadcast in. For all of you video buffs here is an ffmpeg analysis of a short HD program recorded with the HW150. ------------------------------- Input #0, mpegts, from 'WCCO-DT-09182013-0837.mts': Duration: 00:05:06.27, start: 39993.365333, bitrate: 15686 kb/s Program 1 Stream #0:0[0x31]: Video: mpeg2video (Main) ([2][0][0][0] / 0x0002), yuv420p, 1920x1080 [SAR 1:1 DAR 16:9], 29.97 fps, 29.97 tbr, 90k tbn, 59.94 tbc Stream #0:1[0x34](eng): Audio: ac3 (AC-3 / 0x332D4341), 48000 Hz, 5.1(side), fltp, 384 kb/s Stream #0:2[0x35](spa): Audio: ac3 (AC-3 / 0x332D4341), 48000 Hz, mono, fltp, 96 kb/s
