"TERRIBLY POOR USER INTERFACE!"0.5 starson by NGC2359
Pros: none that come to mind! Its THAT bad!
Cons: having designed UI's before - this one is TERRIBLE.
-too many button pushes to do things
-non-intuitive paths to what you need to do, poorly designed
-WAY too slow
-the "watch a program recorded on one in another room" simply is not useable.
Summary: After having used DISH for a number of years (at the time living in the sticks satellite was the only option) I went to this through Suddenlink to have a bundle. I also wanted to avoid the annoying signal lose when there's a heavy storm with DISH - BIG MISTAKE. I'll go back to DISH as its equipment is SO much better designed - much more intuitive. The TiVo is poorly done, slow slow slow, non-intuitive actions. Strange "reactions" to button pushes with strange commands (confirming stuff where confirmation is entirely unnecessary for example) and on and on. As a software designer of User Interfaces - ones that are designed to be intuitive and easy to use by the END USER - this one is clearly not thought out as such. We'll be moving soon to a new place that is being built - at that time I'll go back to DISH which has MUCH better equipment. I'll put up wiht the infrequent signal lose due to storms instead of dealing with this bad system day in and day out.
Thanks for your submission!
