Excellent work-around!

I have a $150 US (at the time) DVD SD-Only recorder. It has no tuner, just RCA Video and Audio Inputs. It is a stripped down model. There are DVD recorders with digital tuner for Off-Air recording that have an internal hard-drive.

Thanks for the tip. I do have a really nice Toshiba dvd recorder/vcr combo but would not record a tv show onto dvd-rw on a daily basis because it will wear out the dvd recorder/drive. I rather use my VCRs for recording for now. But that dvd recorder you mentioned with an INTERNAL HARDDRIVE, would be a great purchase since (if i'm correct) will record onto harddrive using rca video audio inputs as well as onto dvd. I will buy this upcoming. All dvd recorders need a harddrive. There are many things you could do with a harddrive in a dvd recorder including making a best of or collage of a certain kind of dvd onto harddrive as ya watch it(if you know what i mean), or just store many movies, record using the rca inputs, etc,

Cool OTA ATSC tuners in HD HDD DVRs

It is really amazing that folks are coming back to antenna TV (OTA). The prices are similar to what I paid for VCRs that I bought when they first came out, ignoring inflation.

The link shown below is an mp4 video from Magnavox.

Lightbulb OTA DVR ordering site-to-store walmart.com

A tip for browsing the Walmart.com (USA) website. It tries to locate the USA Wal-Mart store closest to the web user using the users ISP IP address. As a result, the website indicates that products as either out of stock, no price, or unavailable.

Previously the website would ask for your zipcode and all would be well. Now it is new and improved

Enter the zipcode at the input of this url and then browse.

https://www.walmart.com/store/finder

Using a Canadian credit card is a pain. You must put in your credit card billing address, but must use the USA store's city, state and zip code at the input.
