Cut the cord and went with this device. It comes with a subscription for the guide but it's affordable for the lifetime option. Strongly recommend this - does everything your cable company offers and without their prices (and many of their channels which are mostly accessible via direct subscription)
I don't see an excellent improvement but I do see some. I have a 4K TV and I thought by hooking up my computer to it I would be able to stream my youtube movies in 4K but it looks like a polished 1080p. +/- the video quality being streamed.
My first try with this item had mixed results. I then purchased an S video cable ($* additional purchase), and it worked beautifully! I love that the software lets you burn the videos to a blank DVD, or upload on YouTube. My only complaint is the software. It would be helpful to have a user guide to help navigate options in uploading videos and customizing the DVDs. That's the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars. It takes some work to figure it out, but the results are worth it.
