"Not TIVO and the first 3 were DOA!"1.5 starson by aross1968
Pros: Picture looks good. Interface isn't that hard to understand.
Cons: Buggy behaviors, no cool Internet or networking options like Tivo, first boxes were dead.
Summary: This has been a frustrating and disappointing expereience.
The first 3 boxes were dead on arrival... the installer spent over a day at our house (bless his heart).
The HDMI output is buggy... sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. The HDMI cable and TV have been tested with a DVD player and they are not the cause.
Playback of recorded video is often out of synch with the video.
The thing is not as smart as Tivo, recording all episodes of a show when told only to record new ones.
Overally, I feel like I am a beta-tester on something I paid good $$$ for.
