I no longer have any use for cable TV. This machine works - it just WORKS! Versatile, intuitively layed out, compatible with "Harmony" remotes. Comes with a very nice, intuitive remote of its own. I believe the "refurb" status is simply due to a post production firmware update. The unit showed no sign of use whatsoever. 32 memory event slots provide plenty of programming to catch daily, weekly, single events, whatever, without having to be nickle and dime'd by that subscription DVR service whose name must never be spoken. Works with my Roku with great results. Lots and lots of hard drive space. Makes great DVD's and DVD-RW's. Survived a power failure - while operating in record mode - with no ill affects at all. Can't say enough good things about this unit. For rhree month's worth of cable service fees, it's mine-all-mine!

If you want the convenience of the "Tivo" or cable/satelite DVR service than go ahead and pay for it, but if you are the type who doesn't mind spending a little time programming your own unit to record your favorite shows, along with figuring out which shows are on which digital channels etc. than this is definitely for you! I can't believe I've gone without this for so long!

No need for that digital converter as it's already in the unit.

This is 10 times better than any DVD recorder you can buy at your local electronics store, just go ahead and get this 1st as I made the mistake of buying a similar model that only has the DVD recording option and took it back after a week.

Simple hook-up if you already have cable servie going to a cable box. Just move the cable that's in the "cable-in" on your cable box and put it on the "antenna-in" on the HDD recorder, then use the included coax cable to connect the "antenna-out" from the HDD back to the "cable-in" on the cable box. The HDD does not even have to be plugged in to transfer the cable signal back to the cable box. You can now record any cable program as well as any digital over the air program. After scanning for digital channels on the HDD recorder you can set it up to record using daily/weekly or one time recording options. The best part is you can continue watching whatever through your cable box and record another program at the same time, and pause live tv etc. much like most DVR's that cable companies offer now. But it's not as user-friendly as the DVR's the cable companies offer and I believe it's not quite 100% HD recording, so it's not a great idea if there's not a technically inclined person operating it..such as my wife.

Purchased this unit because I have an identical unit with an 80GB hard drive that has proven very easy to operate. Appearance of this unit is identical to the older one. HD is much larger and remote control is configured better, but at the same time the old remote will control the new unit and vice versa. Actually, both have 47 buttons with only one unused button not identical. I have had a couple of DVD recorders, one without and one with a hard drive, that were almost impossible to figure out. Therefore, I am most satisfied with both DVD recorders and delighted that operational changes were not made just for the sake of change.

Great deal, the best $150 we have spent in a while. This thing works perfect and the shipping was on time, all good things. We now can record 150 - 300 hrs. of shows and they stay safe on the hard drive. We will use less DVDs and maybe never watch a tv commercial again. You can set the skip feature and just buzz by those things at light speed. Good buy, don't wait buy now... Ron

I bought this DVR thru Wal-Mart.com 3 weeks ago, as one of the Black Friday deals online. I bought it because I may get rid of my cable box, and I need to still be able to record my favorite TV programs. So far, it has worked perfect. When watching your local stations through the DVR, the picture is as clear as your HDTV. Setup was easy. To test it's 320GB hard drive, so far I have recorded 10 hours of TV programs without deleting them. It still has room for more recordings. It beats having to delete programs on a DVD or put in a blank one every time you want to record something. Setting the timer to record programs is very easy. Whenever you set the timer to record a program, the menu will ask you if you prefer your recording on DVD or hard drive. That's great. But the feature that I like the most are the settings for "Repeat Recording". For example, if you watch a particular program every Wednesday at 9p.m., all you have to do is select "WED", select the time of "9:00 p.m." and the DVR will automatically record your program every Wednesday at 9 (just like the cable DVR you rent every month). Besides single repeat days, it also has the following settings for repeat recording requests: "Daily, Mon-Fri, Sat-Sun". So far I've only had 3 weeks, but I am completely happy with my purchase.

8-13-2013: Update. I've had this for over a year now. Still love it. Great Product.

This is the perfect DVD Recorder for amateurs that want to look very professional with their final DVD product. The simple editing tools for both the Hard Drive Portion and the DVD Recorder are very well designed and intuitive to work with. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I've tried the tedious process before of video capture onto a computer hard drive, manipulating software such as Adobe Premiere and other types of editing software and it takes more effort than it should for a decent outcome. I previously used an older non-computer DVD recorder that took me years to master using before it died and I chose this Magnavox to replace it. The ample 320 GB Hard Drive built-in to this system is the key to capturing your raw videos and converting them just the way you want them to look before you burn to a DVD disc to distribute to friends or even sell to others. Everything works flawlessly and you only need to check the instruction manual once and then just explore the simple understandable interface. If you are interested in creating semi-professional looking DVDs or just saving your camcorder footage with easy editing, this is the best product I have found to do the job.
