This unit was just what I needed for the family room TV. I needed an ATSC tuner with component video output to hook up to my existing components (and OTA cable) as I don't have an antenna feed to my TV over the fireplace. Just make sure you upgrade to the latest firmware, it resolves a bunch of issues.

Yes, the tuner isn't as sensitive as some of my TVs - just make sure you have a good signal and you're fine. I was shocked to see the amount of program data that's in the OTA feed. It's only 8 hours or so (it varies from channel to channel) but this little unit shows the current program (and next) when surfing channels - why can't Rogers do that, or even TV manufacturers incorporate it with their built-in ATSC tuners? You don't get an overview of what's on all channels at once but you do see what's on individual channels for the next 8 hours. Recording to your own harddrive (in unencrypted .mts standard files!) is very intuitive and easy and the quality is outstanding. Did I mention they're unencrypted? :-)

This was the last piece in my experiment to "cut the cord" in our new house in SE Oakville. I get 33 channels - all the major US and Canadian networks & independents, plus a few others in uncompressed 1080i Digital Dolby. Along with my Roku box and Harmony One remote, I now have a very family-friendly (and wife friendly!) setup that makes everyone happy and costs $13 a month - $7.99 for Netflix plus $4.99 for Unblock US Proxy for Netflix - don't even order Netflix in Canada without a U.S. proxy! No more Cogeco, Rogers, Bell, or Shaw bills.

I wish the naming convention of the recorded programs could include the program name (currently it only provides the station name plus date & time) but hopefully that will be resolved in a future firmware upgrade.

I connected a 2TB hard drive to this converter and I can record about 230 hours of local HDTV(10 channels) in Montreal with an antenna. The picture is very good. It has coaxial, A/V and HDMI outputs. It also has a program guide for the entire day which is more accurate than a cable box and a timer. The only drawback is that it takes a few seconds before it starts recording. I am very surprised how good the HW-150PVR is for the price.

The unit worked pretty well as intended, but the HDMI failed after about 4 months. I'm waiting for the V10 update - if things work afterward, I will update this review. As of now, buyer beware.

UPDATE - review changed to 3 stars from two. After downloading and installing the v10 update, the HDMI output sparked up again and the unit works fine. I'm holding to three stars because the OS is still clunky, and there are still issues with the episode guide. Picture and such are good though. It's a nice, cheaper unit.

Regrettably, I ended up returning this potentally incredible product due the fact that it would not get past the inital setup page. The forum for the prouduct run by Mediasonic does say a firmware update is pending, however the most recent ETA was posted weeks ago. I for one am not willing to wait on software that should have worked out of the box. I sincerly hope that this product is improved so I can use it as part of my solution to forever rid myself of cable bills for content that is nowhere near the price of service.

I purchased this to give me a pvr for my over the air recording. i am not on cable and wanted something to record to replace the vcr. With the addition of a portable hard drive this unit is working very well. i had some initial difficulty with results but after a few growing pains it is working well. i have it sync'd with my logitech remote and it works for most functions. The quality of the recording is excellent and comes out in 5.1 surround sound as well. i am very pleased with the unit.

Works well, good quality recordings, sensitive tuner. Not user friendly or intuitive, however. Hard to find recordings, and then they are only labelled by time and channel. To get to full screen, you press the hold button, and there are many other illogical pathways. But for $50, this may be good for many people. I'm keeping it.

recording is nearly perfect, the only drawback to me is it separates a single recording to many files if recording time is long. but it is ok for me to replay by just rename them one by by one, a bit annoying, however nothing lost.
