DVRs for Antenna??

Does anyone on here use a DVR or similar hardware to record antenna broadcasts? I cut the cord over 2 years ago and couldn't be happier. The only thing I would like to have is the ability to record some shows when I'm not around.

My tv already has the build in tuner so I'm basically looking for a cheap recording device?

Anyone have some good suggestions?

Add an external USB hard drive for a cheap DVR setup. There is a reason it's cheap, though, it's not terribly user-friendly.

Other options are out there including PC-based systems or all-in-ones from ChannelMaster or Tivo (subscription required).

In the category of PC based systems, there are quite a few options:

There are also some very basic (in terms of cost and functionality) DIY options:
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
