Hi there! In response to your question: How do I record shows or movies over the air on Smart TV without a DVR? I would like to share my own method with you. Considering that there is no DVR, you can only record shows via some other hardware or software. Based on my own experience, EaseUS RecExperts can be an unmissable choice for you to consider.

What you need to prepare:

  • A computer running Windows or macOS with EaseUS RecExperts installed.
  • A TV tuner device compatible with your computer and capable of receiving over-the-air broadcasts.
  • An antenna to receive the over-the-air signals.

Then, you can follow the steps below.

Step 1. Connect the TV Tuner to Your Computer by using the appropriate cables (USB, HDMI, etc.). Install any necessary drivers or software for the TV tuner device on your computer. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for installation.

Step 2. Employ the software that comes with your TV tuner device to look for channels that are available over the air. Depending on the tuner device you're using, this procedure could change.

Step 3. With the TV tuner software on your computer, you should be able to view live TV once the channels have been scanned and made available.

Step 4. Open EaseUS RecExperts on your computer.

Step 5. Select the recording mode you want to use (e.g., Full Screen, Custom Area).

Step 6. Choose the audio input source (if applicable) to capture the sound from the over-the-air broadcast. Then click on the REC button to start recording.
