  Looks like the FW referral is breaking it. Search the site for "magnavox hdd dvr and dvd recorder with digital tuner" and you'll see this comes in several sizes of HD. This 500 GB model has the highest percentage discount.

Thanks OP for fixing that, nice deal.

Good deal. Thanks!

Good deal for a low power ATSC HD DVR. But a Core 2 Duo desktop with a $25 GPU upgrade and a SiliconDust CableCARD box can do the same, and supports CableCARD, for about the same price.

If you can find a Core 2 system with good power management (wake from S3) - you can DVR schedule with Windows 8 Pro Pack (Media Center) and do the same for less.

This is a good deal for grandma and grandpa who are still using VHS though... just not my grandma and grandpa.

I meant as an upgrade for people still using VHS to record shows. Yes, they still exist.

Please excuse my ignorance.

I currently have a Verizon HD DVR. If I purchase this, 1: will this replace my current DVR and 2: will I need to simply contact Verizon and get a standard HD box?

asuka I have tried "I will just throw together a computer and use it as a dvr since XP MCE 2005." It is very frustrating to get working and keep working. I find spending the money on a Tivo with lifetime service is a more worthwhile investement - my 2c.

As far as I can see, this will not work for you in that you cannot connect hd sources (hdmi / component) to this dvr and record in hd. You can get only record in sd. If you can receive over-the-air then you can record in hd. As far as I have found, the only way to record via an hd box (non dvr) is to a computer through a Hauppauge pvr device.

Thank you.  Makes perfect sense.  I was under the impression I'd need a Hauppauge PVR device but was hoping to avoid it.

FYI: This has been available at Amazon at the same price for quite some time.

Just a FYI this units tuner is ATSC SD(Standard Definition) it records in SD and can upconvert to 1080p. You will notice that nowhere does it even mention HD(High Definition) in it's specs, it only mentions 1080p upconversion. While this may be a great recording for a lot of people the description from the manufacture is very misleading. I personally believe the majority of non-technical people would believe this to be a HD DVR which it is not.

Also the HDD refers to Hard Disk Drive.

I purchased this DVR about 6 months ago. I took it back quickly. When you record an event, it puts it in storage. When cycling through your taped shows, only 6 can be viewed per "page". It does not group shows together, so if I tape 10 Offices, 10 Survivors, and 30 game shows, I have to cycle through 12 pages of shows (without a descriptor for any, so it's hard to tell what you're about to watch).

This recorder does not record in HD only SD. If your cable company scrambles all its channels, you will need an antenna for it's built in QAM tuner in order to record TV shows. Lotsa info on this device here.. If you want to record in HD you might want to consider much cheaper devices found here.

I bought this dvr with 1 terabyte last month for $20 more. The manufacter date was 2/2011. It is okay. Our area only has one option for cable & the dvr rental is $27 a month so I have 3 of these dvrs in my house. I much prefer the pioneer model. I don't think they make the pioneer model anymore but I would buy a used one over the Magnavox. The Magnavox is slow, hard to navigate between shows and has an annoying remote. It also takes too long to turn on and a long lag between switching from hdd to dvd. It works for us for the kids rooms, fill it up with Disney shows, HUB tv and movies and they are happy.

Homeworks "150" model. Record in HD, playback in HD; full datastream records in mts format with Dolby 5.1. Somewhat quirky box, but that can mostly be overcome. $38 at Newegg. Usually runs around $45. (Add your own USB hard drive, another $60 for 500 Mb.) Absolutely solid ATSC HD picture.

Magnavox used to be called "Maggotbox" by electronic technicians, who felt they were literally designed to break when being disassembled for repairs. These days it's only a brand name and the devices are manufactured/designed by independents... but the sentiment remains since everything is disposable now.

Once you have the mts file, you can drop it to DVD/blue ray via computer, which should satisfy all you "Windows runs my refrigerator" types. You should learn that dedicated HARDWARE is better than software, almost always.
