I currently have a Channel Master Stream+ which has worked fine until it started randomly rebooting for no reason. I was really hoping Channel Master would actually work on this product as in theory it was great, but it has been discontinued and Channel Master has went all in on these TiVo boxes instead so no more updates for the Stream+ unfortunately......

I also have a DVR+ which *knock on wood* has never failed me yet! But it doesn't look they are releasing any more updates for this product either!

So....Is anyone using an Nvidia shield for OTA? I bought one as it was on sale last week, but, hasn't arrived yet. It's said that you can use a USB Tuner like the Hauppauge 1595 on the Shield and use Live Channels android app. Just wondering what the best USB Tuner out there is, although there only looks to be a few options still being made at this point.

Thanks!

I'm not sure what your price range is but I usually offer my customers Tablo TV.
All you have to do is get the antenna coax to the tuner box and power. Then it can connect to your local network either wired or wireless.
The actual interface is available on most platforms - Android TV/Google TV (including Shield), Roku, AppleTV, Fire TV, and some Smart TVs. Windows app. App for phones & tablets (both Android & Apple). Also can use a web browser (Chrome, Safari, or Edge).

You can mix & match and have several going at the same time. They have 2 tuner & 4 tuner models. And recently, they added stand-alone boxes that can connect directly to the TV (though I don't see the value in that, compared to how the regular boxes work).

I use a 4 tuner model with a 1TB drive installed, that I got 2 years ago. Currently $157 on Amazon. 2.5" hard drive is separate, WD Blue 1TB is $44 right now and a 2TB is $71.

Lifetime guide subscription cost me $149 (but now is $179).
Note you can't get Lifetime sub on the TV connected boxes. Not sure why but again, I don't see a use for those boxes either.

I have a shield but does not support OTA.
