"It will do in a pinch"2.0 starson by Baron83
Pros: It works okay
Cons: It works poorly compared to TiVo
Summary: Half the year I use TiVo and half I have to use Dish. The software makes all the difference. TiVo is easy and intuitive and easy to customize. Dish is difficult and clunky by comparison because TiVo has locked up their software and doesn't license it. If you have a choice, get a standard Dish box and use TiVo; you won't regret it.
