We cut the cord a couple years ago. I haven't looked back, except for one thing. I MISS MY DVR!!

Besides hauling out the old VCR and VHS tapes, is there a product on the market that acts as a DVR for regular old antenna TV? Not really wanting to hook my PC up, etc. Would like a stand along unit.

I've been looking around online and it seems like some products do this, but my brain is back in 1980 and I'm lost.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

P.S. Nothing that hooks up to a phone line (we don't have one, WiFi is A-ok though!) Also, no monthly fees.

Thanks for any help, folks!

(If you need more, bit the mullet and get a TiVo)

Only the first few of those models are actually available.

 

Don't forget about the handful here, too: www.avsforum.com/f/42/hdtv-recorders -

 

especially if the OP wants a DVR that can record and playback in HD.
