"Many Problems"3.0 starson by jason c.
Pros: Records HD,Records 2 shows at once while watching something you have already recorded
Cons: Picture freezes, Refuses comands,Vertical lines on left side of picture,Dish Network
Summary: I gave it a 6 because it is as good a receiver as you can buy today. Mine has had many problems and the one that has bothered me the most is the vertical lines on the left side of the screen while on a dark back ground.I have a 34 inch Dish Network TV. I understand the picture freezes are a problem everyone has.They seem to be happening more often. Dish network has been less than helpful. They blew me off saying they were going to do upgrades at night and now say I have waited to long to complain.I have called three times. They blamed the DVI cable so I tryed Comp cables and the picture was worse. Now they say it is a grounding problem. They want me to pay to have someone come out. I don't find this machine easy to use, anyone that says that has never used a TIVO. Someone said you can control everything from either room. Try stopping a recording on 2 from 1. I think some of these problems may be my fault. I'm sure I will never know all there is to know about this device. Even with all the problems I would hate to go back to a VCR.
