DTVPAL DVR CAN transfer recordings out


Don't believe the reviews that say you can't transfer out recorded shows. Just put a cable between the video and audio outputs of this unit, and the inputs of a VCR or DVD recorder, and you are good to go.

Dual Tuner DVR for OTA


Great product! Similar to satellite DVR service without the subscription fees. After cancelling my satellite service, I've been looking for almost forever before I stumbled upon this execellent dvr. It has dual tuner for OTA, pauses live tv, and built...

Great over-the-air HD DVR


Have been using the DTVPAL DVR to record OTA SD/HD programming in Atlanta for 3 weeks. It works as advertised. Have not seen any the problems reported by others. This unit has firmware F208TALD-N and is plugged into a UPS (battery backup). Watching HD...

Major upgrade from a converter box for "over the air" viewers.


The TV Guide data comes automatically over the air (in major areas), as does the clock setting. The menus are well done, easy to use, and reasonably responsive (much more responsive than the comperable TiVo Series 3 HD). The unit is "time based",...
