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.

J'ai acheté cet appareil pour 2 raisons :
1 - Faire passer le signal TV numérique en hdmi par mon ampli cinéma maison.
2 - Avoir un un PVR (enregistreur TV HD)

Bref, le 'cable box" (décodeur TV) fonctionne très bien en hdmi dans mon système cinéma maison, mais l'enregistreur vidéo est très décevant. Le mode d'enregistrement s'arrête en plein milieu d'un enregistrement ou fait carrément planter le disque dur. J'ai essayé différents types de supports (disque dur ou clés USB récentes), mais je n'ai rien trouvé de pleinement fonctionnel. Même après avoir communiqué avec le fabricant et avoir reçu et installé un patch, ça fonctionne toujours aussi mal.

De plus, la télécommande incluse est de fabrication plutôt décevante.

The tuner on my Olevia 32" TV stopped working so I purchased this product to continue receiving local FTA HD broadcasts. I set it to a 720p resolution and my current TV programs look better than ever. I currently receive 2.1, 8.1, 10.1, 17.1, 26.1, 32.1 and 42.1. My rooftop antenna is oriented towards Seymour Mountain which is about 10 miles away. I did receive for a brief time broadcasts from Bellingham, WA which is approximately 60 miles away. For the price it is excellent, however there is only one tuner so you cannot watch and record on two different channels simultaneously..

Product works as described. The tuner is not as sensitive as most TVs, but with an outside antenna in my loft and after a -3.5 db splitter, all signals came in at 100%. I am 9 km from the transmitters. Some of the button names are strange; "Hold" will put you in full screen mode, "EPG" marks a file for deletion.

If I had one wish, the file names would be saved as the program name, not the channel and date.

Great price, HDMI output makes for a much clearer picture - PVR functions work great! A great unit for a low price HDMI output and PVR, the pause function makes the sound lag a bit behind for me, but overall I would recommend this product to someone looking for a DTV converter.

If you`ve " cut the cable ", this is a smart buy ! Great interface, super tuner, easy to use, PVR function is flawless. Remember, basically, this is for " over the air " use, really great price.

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.
