Not a bad idea, I have an antenna already. I guess the only DVR option is TiVo?
The Amazon Recast is a tidy option that costs a lot less than the competition and you suffer no monthly fee.

I use Plex server that normally has a monthly fee but I bought a lifetime subscription a while back.

The Silicon Dust Scribe has a monthly guide fee after the first year and costs a bit more than the Recast but the latest model also has NextGen tuners built in. NextGen tuners should theoretically save quite a bit of storage space as compared with DTV tuners since they use HEVC compression versus MPEG2.

My understanding is that the Tablo transcodes the MPEG2 to a more efficient format and app support is available on multiple platforms.

There are quite a few options if you do a web search.

If you are like me, I called DTV to reduce my Ultimate Package. It is repriced at $111.00 month including taxes/fees, as of this month, when my contract was up. They kept me as a customer for another year and have to call them again in 2023. Their 100Mbps internet is still $42.00/mo. They sure wanted to keep me as an ATT customer since Fall 1994.
We have the highest credit rating, along with never been late with payment.
