This 20 inch pole for mounting an outdoor TV antenna is very well made. It was easy to install and came with all the hardware needed for attaching it to my roof. I recommend that item.

DISH Mobile ViP®211k HD Pay-As-You-Go Receiver

Took this on our recent RV trip. Cinch to set up with auto locking onto satellites. Many RV parks have limited or no cable. With the external HD, it works wonderfully as a DVR! Love the pause and rewind features so you can pause it for a while then...

Tvonics DTR-HD500

There's no shortage of little black boxes on the market these days, Freeview+ HD PVRs included. Kudos to TVonics then for being bold with the HD500. But has it gone far enough with its features?

Humax HDR-7500T

The HDR-7500T is a decent dual-channel PVR with in-built DLNA and at least a smattering of apps that could grow into a larger library over time — but we can only review what's placed in front of us, not what could be. There's no shortage of competing...

Echostar HDS-600RS

When Slingbox first launched, placeshifting, as it quickly became known, was a technology to watch out for. Everyone got excited about the idea of using the internet to stream video from their home recorder.

Tvonics DTR-Z500

How do you stand out in the crowded Freeview HD PVR market? Excluding media streaming and DLNA networking is hardly in keeping with the Freeview zeitgeist, but the DTR-Z500HD boasts a couple of handy features that look compelling. One is a built-in...

To be honest, I pride myself on being quite thorough and meticulous when it comes to purchasing anything. I wish I done my homework a bit more on this but that was my fault and no recording or pausing etc. Wish I done some more research and paid extra...

DIRECTV CCK-W Wireless DECA Cinema Connection Kit (CCK-W)

If you want to connect your DirecTV receiver to the internet via wifi, this does the trick. It was quite easy to install and it is compact enough to be hidden behind the cabinet. Mine is actually attached to the back of the cabinet out of sight but...

I have had the Technomate TM5402 for two months now and the build quality is better than the Skybox F5S but that is it's only saving grace. At 2 to 3 times the price I expected the EPG and Internet settings to be better and they are not. For instance...

was easy to install, and started receiving TV channels in about 15 minutes, once the software updates were installed. make sure you don't lose the software disc, because you will need it to install future updates.
