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.

I bought the product and installed it. The installation is easy and I connected a external hard drive. All worked just fine. I try recorded some tv and it worked. But when you are in recorded mode you cannot watch an other channel. I live in south shore of Montreal and I abble to cath FOX (WFFF-DT) with my antenna in my attic.

This box not only allows you to watch your local digital air broadcast signals, you can plug in any USB drive, and PVR anything and everything. I have it set to record all my regular favourites, and all I have to do is watch when I have time. That's it.
Simple plug and play set up, and away you go. You can use either the boxes tuner, or use your TV's tuner, depending how you choose to configure it. The only thing I would change is to have the USB plug on the rear of the box, rather than the front. But, if you think you would be plugging and unplugging regularly, the front USB connector is preferable.

If you want to be able to record digital over-the-air TV and not break the bank, this little box is the perfect solution. The interface is a bit clunky, and you do have to provide your own hard drive, but for what you pay, this is great value. I've been using mine for about a month now, and after the initial learning period of what the box can and can't do, I am quite happy with the purchase. (Note, the remote control that is included is not very good. If you have a programmable remote control, that you can use instead, that would be better.)

Very good product for the cost. Excellent recording quality but be ready to have sufficient storage attached usb stick or quick external hard drive.
read the manual for detailed instruction and adjustments.

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.
