"Far Inferior to TiVo"1.5 starson by bdwright
Pros: dual tuner; large hard drive; Quick Menu; nice looking
Cons: very slow; system freezes; poor user interface
Summary: This device has more features than the Dish dvr I replaced this with, but I'm very close to moving my smaller hard drive TiVo back into the main TV room.
I tried to allow enough time to become accustomed to the new device, but there are severe flaws. The SeriesLink feature is nice, but has very limited options and does a poor job of differentiating between first run and repeat showings.
The DVR is very slow. I don't understand why a company releases a device that is absolutely incapable of performing as it is supposed to.
Worst of all, it freezes up on nearly a daily basis.
I will be calling DirecTV to complain about this DVR and demand satisfaction.
