Channel Master CM-7000PAL review: Channel Master CM-7000PAL

 

Channel Master CM-7000PAL

DVR that records, pauses, fast-forwards, and rewinds free over-the-air HDTV programming; no monthly fees; excellent image quality; dual-tuner design means you can record two programs simultaneously from one antenna; 30 hours of HD recording; superb...

Relatively expensive upfront cost; lacks the polish and features of TiVo or other subscription DVRs; more like a VCR in how it records shows; bland, limited user interface; recording capacity not expandable.

For someone who wants to DVR-ify an HD antenna setup without paying monthly fees, the Channel Master CM-7000PAL is the easiest solution available.

Channel Master CM-7000PAL OTA HDTV Receiver with DVR (DISH DTVPal DVR)Review

 

If you're hoping to avoid being nickel and dimed to death by monthly fees, this little dual-tuner HDTV DVR is worth a serious look.

Channel Master's CM-7000Pal DVR makes the argument against pay TV even more compelling. Finally, technology that only cable and satellite subscribers could access in the past, or those willing to pay a monthly TiVo fee is available to the rest of us....
