OK, so we’re not missing terribly the cable network channels but we do miss not being able to record shows and watch them later. My preliminary research says there are a couple of devices on the market designed to DVR shows from an antenna. One is the Magnavox MDR513H/F7 which sells for abour $199 on Amazon. But the better choice seems to be the more expensive Channel Master CM7000PAL which is $328!
Why the difference? The Channel master (pictured below) has a built-in FOR FREE channel guide that you can record from by highlighting a program. Magnavox sounds more like the old fashioned VCR setup, pick a day, pick a time, etc. Oh well. Cutting the cord is starting to add up. Still not too bad. In ROI terms about 4 months.
