I had a hdd, home run, nvidia shield running plex. What a pain. Bedroom tv died, bought a tosh 55" firetv, 2 4k fire sticks for the other tv and a recast. Life is great. I just tell alexa what to record and it does it. I say channel 5 and bam channel 5 is in the tv. Wish I didn't waste money on home run and plex.

Last I heard this thing would only let you view on a fire tv...which makes it a lemon...when they add roku and other options it might be of interest. I picked up a $50 airtv from woot which lets you add a 2TB hard drive and have full dvr functionality with clients on all the major players.

I researched these for my parents since they had smart tv's and they seem great and tuners are pretty strong. The real problem we ran into was that they only work on Fire Devices. So your smart tv that has the amazon app to do watch video's play games etc will not work to watch this on you have to have either a fire tablet or a fire tv. If amazon would fix this oversight I know a lot of people would be all in on these devices.

I totally get your point. We actually get many (but not all) of the network stations on DirecTV now. The guide also looks really polished on the recast, will look at the airtv...

you won't be disappointed but I would definitely recommend paying the extra 50 bucks and getting the 1TB.

Well I seriously considered it but DirecTV now cloud DVR covers many programs and seek works great, the 500gb claims 75 hours of recording which would be fine for me. I have a 200gb partition for my windows media center current implementation and it's sufficient. Also apparently external hard drive is now functional? Anyway, appreciate the input!!

Not all of them, only abc, NBC, fox. Currently CBS is not available due to some contract dispute, never had pbs, local antenna networks, probably have about 15 or so total and DirecTV now has 4-5 at most.
