CNET's picks for the best DVRs you can buy that don't come from a cable or satellite company.
Channel Master has announced the DVR+ 1TB which now comes with an integrated hard drive but also keeps the same form factor.
Even if it is a little rough around the edges, the Channel Master DVR+ delivers on the cord-cutter promise of an over-the-air DVR+ without subscription fees.
The TiVo Roamio is hands-down the best DVR for recording over-the-air TV, but its excellence comes at a great cost.
Nuyvvo's Tablo is one of the most promising over-the-air TV recording solutions in years, but there are just enough quirks to keep it in early-adopter territory.
The cheaper, no-Kinect version of the Xbox One gives buyers a better deal by eliminating the one part of the console they probably didn't want to begin with -- but the PS4 remains a compelling alternative.
If you're willing to pay the premium price, TiVo's do-it-all Roamio is the best cable DVR yet and an able whole-home TV solution.
The Xbox One Media Remote is a must-have accessory that makes it much easier to accept a gaming console as the hub of your living room.
Though it doesn't have every feature that we'd like, Box is an excellent choice for viewing, editing, and sharing your files securely in the cloud.
Pricing not available
If you can get past the high price of entry, the Moxi HD DVR's bevy of network and Internet-enhanced features--and its capability of recording three programs at once--make it a potentially worthwhile TiVo competitor.
Dish has upgraded its kangaroo-themed DVR with a faster 1,305MHz Broadcom processor, added Wi-Fi, integrated Slingbox, and served up a new feature called Hopper Transfers that allows you to transfer recorded programming to your iPad for offline viewing.
