After replacing my old antenna and I am getting awesome pictures on my OTA antenna, I need a DVR or digital tuner of some kind to be able to record one show OTA while watching another OTA channel.
I can't seem to find anything that doesn't require membership in Direct TV or Dish or TIVO that will allow me to record the channels with extensions. Such as 4.1, 5.2, 5.3, 8.1, 8.2 etc. My current dvd recorder will not pick up the decimals after the channels. It only goes to channel 4, 5, 8 etc.
So what can I do to be able to watch HD on my tv and record on another channel at the same time without having to pay cable fees?
I appreciate your help and support.
Thanks for the suggestion but Holy Cow! They are $399 to $2000. Too rich for my blood.
I'm just a little ol 80 yr old lady on Soc. Sec. My daughter gave me a $100 gift card for mothers day and I was hoping that would take care of most of the cost of a dvr.
There is a unit listed on Amazon that might work but it doesn't say if it will accept the 4.1, 5.2 etc channels. According to the Q & A, it says it records only OTA no cable channels. But somebody answered my question about this and said that it would work. I didn't ask the question very well on Amazon, I also wanted to know if I could watch one show and record another channel at the same time. Not sure this unit will do it or not.
Do you think this would work for my application?
