Ok, I have been searching the forums for quite a while,and can't find this answered..... any help is appreciated as I am a total newbie regarding dvr without the satellite company anyway, I bought the magnavox 533, have it attached to a good antenna, and I have some shows recorded on it, so far it works as I read it would. However I am finding it complicated to find the shows I;m interested in recording,then setting the times,etc. It is not very user friendly,and am I correct in that it has no program guide at all,so it's all manual?
I'm thinking that a Tivo series 3 is a better fit for us (?) Since from what I'm reading, it has the program guide to record from?
Since a used Tivo is similar in price to the Magnavox, I'm not too techie, and just looking for ease of use with our OTA shows.
Thanks for any advice,or if I'm wrong, please tell me!
