I can watch playback without fear of packet loss due to WiFi, and since I know how to program my VCR then I can record more than just live TV.
If you have a thrift store in your area, I recommend checking out the old technology that does just what this does (down to the lack of HDMI port). I got my VCR for $5. That is an $95 savings over this small white box of a video recorder.
Waaaaaay to logical for Wooters! But a good point: How long do you intend to keep the recording? If it is watch and erase, then a VCR is fine.
Try to find a decent brand used one...and expect that the clods who donated did not tape a remote on it.
My local thrift store sells 20 (old, used) VHS movies for $5!
Like Lake Wobegon, but without the lake.
