More and more people are looking for an alternative to writing that big monthly check to their satellite or cable TV provider. It's understandable — why pay for a zillion channels that you never watch? Channel Master's latest solution is the CM-7500TB1 over-the-air DVR. It makes it easy to record your local high-def TV broadcasts without paying for a subscription. Simply connect the CM-7500TB1 to an indoor or outdoor antenna and start recording your favorite network shows in crystal-clear HD — to watch whenever you want.
Over-the-air HD — amazing picture quality, free for the taking
The on-screen guide makes it easy to select and record programs. Over-the-air channels and streamed web content are accessible from one screen.
The CM-7500TB1 is the skinniest DVR we've ever seen, yet it can record up to 160 hours of high-def programs, and provides great DVR conveniences like pause and forward/reverse skip using the remote control. And as we've told people for years, regular over-the-air high-def picture quality is as good or better than cable or satellite HD.
This is a dual-tuner DVR, so you can watch one over-the-air channel while simultaneously recording another, or set it to record shows on two different channels at the same time. Setting up timer recordings is a snap. The free on-screen program guide lets you schedule recordings up to 14 days in advance.
The CM-7500TB1 is surprisingly easy to hook up and set up. First, connect an indoor or outdoor antenna suited to your distance from local station transmitters. Next, make a single-cable HDMI connection to your HDTV, then follow the step-by-step instructions of the on-screen setup wizard.
This DVR works great with virtually any HDMI-equipped TV, and it's a terrific solution for projector-based home theaters, since projectors never include a built-in tuner. Note: This DVR cannot record satellite or cable TV signals.
Stream movies from Vudu, music from Pandora, and everything else from YouTube
Supplementing over-the-air channels with streamed Internet content makes cutting the cord a whole lot more appealing. The CM-7500TB1 makes it easy to access great Internet entertainment — simply connect a network cable to the DVR's Ethernet port. You like movies?
