    Best PVR?

    Hey guys,



    I was wondering whats the best OTA HDTV compatible PVR with an electronic programing guide. DVB and multimedia playback would also be a plus? Does the Pansat 9200 or azbox have an epg for OTA channels?

    DTVPal DVR: HD, dual tuners, 7 day guide & 30 hours of HD space. Great OTA HD PVR receiver!

    Downside: Acts more like a VCR than a current-gen DVR, in that you have to manually program time and channel for each event (you can't just create a timer for any event called "name"). This means that if ABC or Fox or whomever decides to re-slot your favorite TV show, or cancel it, the DTVPal will not correct the timer, and record whatever comes on in the old slot.

    That's easy: TiVo HD. Two onboard ATSC tuners, very good search and timer systems. Downside to it is that you have either a monthly, yearly, or lifetime (of the box, not your account) subscription fee. Something like $13/mo or $130/yr or $400/lifetime (of the box, not your account). The other downside is that it requires access to a phone line or broadband internet. If there's a broadband connection, it also enables Netflix Watch Instantly and Amazon VOD streaming services, with more to come. The TiVo HD also has the excellent Recommendations system, which the DTVPal does not.
