"Awful Set Up Experience but Stellar afterwards"3.5 starson by R_Ellis
Pros: Quality product. Great Screen. Good Ergonomics.Ability to have favorites and ignore channels you never watch is awesome.
Cons: Horrible planning for set up software. Hate having to connect to PC to reprogram, wifi or bluetooth anyone?
Summary: Set Up software asked to ID cable box brand&model. 1.5 hours of frustration later I found a forum post saying to change brand to Xfinity. This could have been anticipated. Many Cable Co's rebrand their boxes. Furious...just furious. Almost smashed it
Now that the @#$%& thing is set up, I like it. But the price tag is high enough that I shouldn't have to do very much other than power the thing up and choose my devices,cable co, and zip code. And it should do so wirelessly.
