"No Better then Tivo"0.5 starson by airey001
Pros: Box can output to 2 tv!
Cons: See Opinion
Summary: I recently switched from Cable with Tivo Series 2 DVR's to Dish Network and their 722 DVR.
After having used the 722 for 5 months it is clear this box is no where near Tivo.
First at night this box needs to power down to update. Thats ok you can adjust the time, what i can't stand is the box stays off till you "Wake it back up". I see no reason for this You can't be updateing the Box's OS everynight to need this!
Second even though you can connect 2 tv's only one outputs in HD. If you have more then one HD TV too bad oh and try to get a Second HD receiver. Dish doesn't believe anyone needs more then on HD TV.
The main Items I find that doesn't make this better then Tivo:
- Can't Send Video to or from the box (TivotoGO - TivoComeBack)
- No Networking
- Nightly update power down (At least turn the box back on after any updates.)
- On Screen Guide frequently has wrong information
Another Item I can't get use to coming from cable is the lack of a digital display with time and channel number.
