you will find there everything what you must and should know and much more technical info;
reading that will avoid posting well known long time ago relevant info and allow you avoid mistake and posting some guesses.

And BTW, pitching sales of a competitor's device is not nice - there are dedicated thread, so if you want to show alternative solution, posting URL to that thread would be recognized as good manner
First, many, many thanks to P Smith and many others for lots of help in keeping my CM7000PAL "working" for the past 8 years. You can't beat the price, but you get (less than) what you pay for. This years DST ordeal, along with a lower price on a "competitors device" is putting my PAL behind me. I will now be hanging out over at the TiVo Roamio OTA DVR thread. I hope my good manners pleases P Smith

Thanks again guys, it was "fun" while it lasted.

BTW, I will have a PAL for sale as soon as I complete the change over. All original, opened once for cleaning (it didn't need it).

Wow! Eight years is a pretty good run for just about any consumer electronic device - and it's still working! (Including the bugs, unfortunately.) But wait - that puts you back to 2008. I didn't think CM picked up the "Pal" line that early - thought it was still a DTVPal back then.

Personally, I've mostly moved to CM's new DVR+, but my wife still uses her Pal.
