I have this. Paid $20 on Amz in March. It’s decent enough as a basic tuner, but the extended features are not well documented. The menu system is not terribly intuitive and the remote control has about a thousand buttons on it, and many of them don’t do what you would expect them to. I have successfully recorded OTA broadcasts and watched them later. I have not been successful in making the timeshift function work, and have not been able to export recordings to a different medium. Maybe because I haven’t fully comprehended the instructions? But it doesn’t seem to work the way I expect it to. Also, no “flashback” function (quick rewind 10 or 20 seconds) which is a bother, requiring manually selecting rewind, stop, play.

TBH, I wish I had spent the extra few bucks for a Silicone Dust product with more features and “smart” integration. But if you’re looking for a simple OTA tuner for a single screen, this is suitable for that.

Really? people are still watching broadcast on their analog TV’s ?!? :smiley:
