You got yourself an HDTV antenna. You got yourself a Roku device. You cut the cord… and you couldn’t be happier. You’re saving a ton of money each month, and there are so many streaming services out there that you don’t even miss any of the shows or movies you love. There is one thing about ditching pay TV that’s kind of annoying though, and that’s the lack of DVR features. Lucky for you, there are a bunch of boxes out there designed to bring DVR functionality to cord cutters. We already told you about the Tablo, but some people don’t want to spend $200+. Well here’s another option: the Mediasonic Homeworx. This awesome gadget only costs $32, and it can record any OTA programming just like a conventional DVR from your cable company. The only thing to note is that it doesn’t have internal storage, but it does have a USB post so any old flash drive you have lying around will work just fine.
