    Basically worthless because it can't take a cablecard.

    It's a $40 DVR. You're not going to find one cheaper than that. It's works fine for over-the-air...which many people have since cable is so outrageously priced despite nothing on it.

    I ordered one and it'll be here tomorrow. Will be interesting to see how well it does (or doesn't) work. For $40 I'm not out much if it's a turd. Really just for the on-screen channel guide it might be worth the $40.

    It is a TV Converter box for OTA signals. It is not intended to be used with service from your cable company. This device is for cord-cutters who want a DVR for the OTA channels. It has the added feature of being able to play media files from USB hard drives.

    It is far from worthless.
