"Record 2 and watch 1 already recorded!!!!"5.0 starson by phonegunner
Pros: This is an outstanding device... NO ONGOING FEES! Only the purchase price.
It works very similar to the Dish Network DVRs (which are its ancestors) and their remotes can be used to replace this one if it gets lost (because they always get lost).
Cons: Once in awhile timers might get out of whack and cause it to get stuck in a reboot cycle. Fix it by disconnect the antenna and reboot. Then set back to factory defaults which keeps what is recorded but clears the timers and some settings. No biggie.
Summary: It will work with any antenna, inside or outside. Of course for signal strength it works best with an outdoor antenna (www.antennaweb.org).
After having usedthe Dish 722 DVR for a few years it was simple to move over to this. The colors are different for the menus (most probably a diferentation choice by Channel Master / Dish Network).
HDMI to the Mitsubishi WD65734 with Optical audio to the Sony Surround sound system and the home theater is operable.
The COAX (75 Ohm output with normal channel choices of 3 or 4) can be used to feed other parts of the house and with a Remote Control extender (available elsewhere) control can be had from the other parts of the home. All TV's would see the same video that is either tuned to or being played back.
