"PHD-VRX" (you gotta add an external drive to get the DVR functionality) .
I am saving the pennies for a lifetime-TiVo Roamio and 2TB HDD. $800.00.
There's a lot of info on this question over here:
I tried the Magnavox DVD recorder that was mentioned, and I ended up returning it 2 days later to Walmart. Maybe I got the wrong one, but it couldn't record HD which was a deal breaker.
In the end, we just decided to get the TiVo Roamio with the monthly fee. I love it. No hassle. 4 tuners. HD, with channel guide. I never found a good fee-free solution that did everything I wanted. Maybe someday Google or someone else will make a box I can buy off the shelf that does basic HD DVR without a monthly fee... Until then, TiVo is great.
The DVR+ is an excellent DVR and I highly recommend it.
+1 for HomeWorx HW-150PVR.
Thank you Charlie. So awesome. I'm in the Toronto, Ontario area and saw this post and immediately went out to BestBuy and price matched with NCIX to get this for $42 CAD. Tried it for a couple days and works like a charm as an OTA PVR. And as a bonus, it even picks up an extra channel (CHCH) that my TV's built-in digital tuner doesn't get.
I like that you use your own flash drive so you can watch what you record on other devices too. Mine is version 14 so no firmware update was needed and everything works great. Thanks again! :)
Note there's also another similar device on Amazon - the iView 3500STB which I almost got 'cause it's even cheaper and has a QAM Tuner (although some say doesn't work) but it seems the DVR software is buggy and there is no support. So I went with the HomeWorx and couldn't be happier.
