"DONT BUY THE R15 -WORTHLESS JUNK"0.5 starson by geraldhsr
Pros: caller Id , interactive channel ,a few other nice features but does not come close to making up for the cons
Cons: Compared to the older tivo based dvrs ,this thing is a joke . It has two tuners but only buffers one. This is a HUGE MISTAKE . You might as well consider this unit to be a one tuner model because it is so difficult to use and enjoy.
Summary: I have been a directv customer for 15 years and have had a tivo based dvr for about 8. I had to threaten to cancel my account to get directv to take the r15 back and allow me to reactivate my 8 yr old hughes tivo based dvr . Directv has gone in the wrong direction since Murdock has gotten involved. I hope they come to their senses and go back to tivo based dvrs . I also agree with many of the other problems with the r15 mentioned by the other reviews. If I didn't have my old dvr to fall back on ,I would have canceled my directv service . This dvr is that bad!
