Pros 70 hours of recording and the dual tuner make it quite useful
Cons It often overheats and reboots on its own, or crashes and locks unexpectedly while watching recorded video. That's about it.
Summary Considering this was free with our DirecTV contract, after we dropped Dish, this is a great DVR. The TiVo noises can get annoying quite quickly though.
"Frustrating..."on by mbenge
Pros It's a DVR! Nice to have two different guide views; Nice, sleek box.
Cons Reception of thr remote signal becomes worse and worse. All the menus' print is too small for any TV smaller than a 32'!
Summary Direct TV has sent me two replacement Units. I am on my third. They all work great to begin with. I've asked Direct TV to send me one of their other brands, but somehow the "luck of the draw" manages to give me the same reciever. The last two exhibited the same problems. The longer I have the unit the less it picks up the remote signals. I've found the trick is once it begins refusing to follow remote commands is to stop trying for about 2 minutes and try again. Then it works. As you can imagine, this is quite frustating when onw would like to change the channel, pick a program to record, read the guide, or do anything involving the remote control. Repalcing the batteries does not help, and it has nothing to do obstruction between the receiver and remote.
Pros Very intuitive user interface
Cons No home media option
Summary I got mine for a steal at $49.00 (with 2 yr commitment). It is extremely easy to use and recorded programs are as clear as live tv! The only downside? There is no home media option. DirecTv needs to get with the program on this. Otherwise, an extremely worthwhile investment.
Pros no degradation of picture in repay
Cons can't edit recorded programs
Summary We love it
Pros What is not to rave about?! I love my Tivo! You get to watch your favs, FF through commercials, that in itself is the best thing about Tivo! Direct TV is the best company out there as far as customer service and Ive dealt with many including cable tv (pri
Cons I cant find any cons about this product
