Brands of DVR recorders that Best Buy sells include TiVo and Sling Media. Examples of DVR recorders featured on BestBuy.com, as of October 2015, include the TiVo Roamio Pro DVR and the Sling Media Slingbox M1.
The TiVo Roamio Pro DVR is a two-in-one device featuring the benefits of both a DVR and a media-streaming device. It allows users to record up to six shows at once and stores the content on its 3-terabyte hard drive, which is enough room to store up to 450 hours of HD movies and shows. Users also have access to media-streaming services such as YouTube, Netflix and Hulu Plus. The device is not compatible with satellite providers, AT&T U-Verse or Google Fiber.
The Sling Media Slingbox M1 allows users to record and watch their favorite shows anywhere in the world when the device is connected to a wireless network. Thanks to its streaming capabilities, users have the option of watching live or recorded movies and shows on their tablets, laptops or smartphones. The device is compatible with Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, and Windows, Android and iOS devices. Unlike some DVR devices, the Slingbox M1 works in conjunction with select satellite providers such as DirecTV. Users can also download the Slingbox App for their mobile devices to obtain control over the Slingbox M1 via those devices.
