"Sucks Out Loud"1.0 starson by joelwsmith
Pros: HD Programming, good up-scaling, and ummmmm... That's all.
Cons: Everything else, crashes constantly, says programs are recorded then won't play when selected, bad user interface, awkward navigation, no dual tuner switching, and the list goes on
Summary: I have been a 6 year customer of DirecTV and have never complained about any of their equipment. I have had their Tivo boxes for the past 3 years and they have been awesome.
I received this DVR 6 days ago. Already it has crashed/frozen 5 times. It has only recorded 40% of the shows I asked it to, the rest show up in the playlist but when I select them it asks if I want to delete them like nothing is there. Now, it has frozen in a permanent green screen mess from the last frame it played. I have restarted every which way for the last 30 minutes and it's still frozen. Save your money and stress and switch to anyone else. The Tivo Series 3 is a better bet, even though it's $800.
