Does Everything it is Supposed to do January 29, 2015
Reviewer: Eric Griffin from Pasadena, MD United States  
I would give this product 5 stars except it is still lacking apps like Hulu/Netflix.  It would also be nice if the "universal remote" could be programmed to work with audio receivers/DVD players.  With that said, I must say that the Channel Master DVR+ has exceeded all of my expectations in every other way.  This was not my first choice for a DVR option for OTA broadcasts.  After my initial research I chose the "Tablo" as it offered the best options for my large family.  I had that for a week before returning it (I gave it a 2-star review on Amazon).  Anyway, the Channel Master took 5 minutes to set up.  All functions worked perfectly w/out fuss.  I was able to pause, FF, RWD live TV.  Record on demand, schedule recurring episodes etc.  The channel guide is free and accurate.  The hardware is slim and doesn't take up too much space.  There is nothing I can really say negative about my experience using this product.  I would definitely  suggest it to anyone planning to "cut-the-cord".

Love it! January 29, 2015
Reviewer: Jeff Cz from Muskego, WI United States  
Have had ours a week now and it's great. One question tho , purchased a dish 20.1 learning remote and there are no codes listed in the remote manual for the dvr+ . Have gone one by one trying the codes from 500 up to 750 now and nothing yet. If anyone has the actual code or a secret to program this remote to operate the dvr+ , would ge greatly appreciated. Like the idea of a Dish remote since we've been used to Dish remote for 3 years now.   UPDATE: 2 recent reviewers , one wrote that they couldn't skip forward more than 10 seconds , yes you can . Go to menu, dvr ,dvr set up ,then playback set up. choose your option of skip forward 10,30,45 or 60 seconds. 10 seconds is default. have ours set on 30. another reviewer stated guide only goes 1 week forward. not true , it goes 2 weeks forward.

DVR+ January 27, 2015
Reviewer: Mike from Bakersfield, CA United States  
This new model is so much better than the prior models. No overheating issues and you're not limited in the size of hard drive you can use with it. Love ours and have completely cut the cable. Thanks.

Smooth transition from Dish Hopper January 27, 2015
Reviewer: Lynn from Bristol, VA United States  
I have been a Dish customer for 12 years. I decided to cut the cord. I installed an antenna and then ordered the Channel Master DVR+. I get the 4 networks clearly. With the DVR+, I can pause live programs. I can record programs to watch when I choose. It works great. The one negative I see is that the skip forward is only 10 seconds (compared to 45 seconds for the Hopper). I like to use this to skip commercials.

Overall Pleased January 26, 2015
Reviewer: Scott Horwitz from Northbrook, IL United States  
My first impressions are positive overall. Most importantly, this product does everything it promises, and the picture is great. The interface is user-friendly, intuitive, and looks sharper than Comcast (but not as nice as Tivo, DirectTV, and others). The program guide goes about 1-week out, which isn't bad (two weeks or more would be nicer). I had issues with the search feature, so it's best to hunt for the shows you want to record by navigating through the guide. Also, you may notice a slight delay in the interface from time to time as you navigate the guide or menu (not always, but enough that it can be mildly bothersome). There is no way to limit (or cap) the number of recordings for a given show, so you will have to manually delete your recordings after watching them (we used to enjoy stockpiling reruns of certain shows with our old Comcast DVR). Playback looks perfect for recorded shows. Overall, very pleased with my purchase, especially considering no monthly fees!
