re: Digital Antenna into Pioneer VSX 50 Receiver - mchias1
TiVo bolt would also work. There is a monthly/yearly cost associated with it. For OTA there are free dvr apps that you could install on a computer to work as a DVR if you need it for another option. You could use a windows 7 PC with windows media center for a free dvr as well. Do you n...
