Zuus Country is gone from 34-8. Buzzr has taken it's place. I am very happy to have this channel. Unfortunately it is often horribly pixelated due to 11 programs being crammed onto one RF channel.

It looks like all the other brands of cheapie HD dvr's are essentially this same machine under different brand names. Has anybody gotten any of them to work properly with clear QAM?

I got mine today and it is going back. Not worth a d*** for QAM (pun intended)! It won't timer record many channels. It will tune them, and will record them while watching live by pressing record,...

I ordered one from walmart.com two days ago. Twenty bucks for an HD recorder is a fabulous deal, if it works good.

Thanks for pointing that out. It is in clear QAM on Bright House also. I hadn't noticed that Grit is also in clear QAM. Still no World Channel on Bright House.
