Best over-the-air DVR: Tablo Quad DVR

Tablo QUAD OTA DVR TechHive Best Home Entertainment Products

No over-the-air DVR is perfect, but the Tablo Quad DVR hits the sweet spot of affordability and ease of use.

Easy to set up, the Wi-Fi- and ethernet-enabled Tablo box can sit anywhere in your house and it comes equipped with a USB port for external storage as well as a bay for a 2.5-inch internal drive.

You can stream video from the DVR over a streaming stick, a tablet, a phone, or other supported devices using the Tablo app, while a $5-a-month Tablo subscription gets you access to a 14-day programming guide and the ability to browse programs by channel or genre.

Other features include ad skipping, automatic discarding of older episodes and 5.1 audio support. If you’re looking for a more affordable option, the $140 Tablo Dual Lite DVR packs many of the same features but records only two channels at a time rather than four.
