"Biggest electronic piece of junk I have ever owned"0.5 starson by porky77354
Pros: Great as a paperweight
Cons: Everything and then some
Summary: I have a TIVO based DVR, and loved it. I wanted to add one to the bedroom, but was told DirecTV dropped TIVO in favor of their own branded box. Biggest mistake since new Coke. I have had the displeasure to be forced to use this for over 2 years. I have complained numerous times, and I always have gotten the same song and dance, that everything is going to be fixed, but it just gets worse. The remote and interface must have been designed by a monkey on LSD. Beyond that, it constantly crashes. My best friend is the reset button. Sometimes if I change the channel I get the audio of one channel and the video from the other, and it crashes. It crashes here, it crashes there, it crashes everywhere. Want to record first runs only? Forget it. This box simply ignores your command and if the same show is one 4 times in one day, guess what, you are getting all of them. I could probably write a small book on how bad this thing is. I have been a DirecTV customer for over 10 years, but I am at the end of my rope. I think we need some kind of class action lawsuit because this thing is the worst product I have ever owned, and it's not even close. They need to scrap every single one of these, and set them on fire.
