REVIEW

TiVo Roamio

The TiVo Roamio is hands-down the best DVR for recording over-the-air TV, but its excellence comes at a great cost.

REVIEW

Nuvyyo Tablo

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.

Simple.TV by Silicondust

Simple.TV's innovative over-the-air DVR solution is far from perfect, but it's a decent budget option if you can't afford a TiVo Premiere.

Moxi HD DVR
REVIEW

Moxi HD DVR ( three-tuner)

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.

REVIEW

TiVo HD XL

The TiVo HD XL charges a hefty premium for its spacious recording capacity and THX certification, but most users will be content sticking to the all-but-identical standard TiVo HD DVR.

TiVo HD
REVIEW

TiVo HD

While it's not compatible with your cable company's interactive and video-on-demand services, the TiVo HD's excellent onscreen interface and long list of network and Internet features puts it in a class above the generic high-def DVRs offered by most cable providers.

REVIEW

DIRECTV Plus HD DVR HR21

The DirecTV HR20 is easy to use and offers plenty of features, but its operational bugs make use more of a headache than with other DVRs.
