Channel Master, a manufacturer of over-the-air TV solutions, has entered into an exclusive agreement to offer TiVo’s DVR technology for OTA antenna users. Channel Master will launch a 500GB version of the TiVo Edge DVR later this summer.
What happened Channel Master?

What happened to Channel Master DVR?
NOTE: This product has been discontinued. Over the years, many cable-disablers have asked me to recommend a DVR (digital video recorder) that can be used to record free broadcast TV from an antenna.
How does Channel Master work?
Like TiVo, Channel Master records the native broadcast signal and stores it on the Stream+ itself. That means every live TV channel and recording looks as smooth and sharp as it would with direct antenna input, and channels take only a second or two to load.
