"Overall, very good functionality except LOUSY ability to switch to/from closed caption."4.0 starson by davidhh
Pros: Generally good functionality
Cons: Switching to/from closed caption awful.
Summary: Generally, I have been very impressed with this receiver. But there are several control functions that are a real pain. I happen to be hard of hearing and often want to switch the "close caption" on or off. To do this it takes an unbelievable 17 button pushes to either turn the closed caption on OR off.
Not quite as bad, but to time record (DVR) a program or delete a program it seems like one has to go thru an unecessaryly large number of "navigations" before you can get the job done. And, there is no way one can stop a recording once it has started. You simply have to wait it out!
On the postive side, I really like the 30 second skip and 10 second reverse skip feature on the recorder.
Also, I liked the dual HD output capability (HDMI and Component). With this I was able to connect our HD TV in our living room with the Component output while using a 50' HDMI cable (yes, HDMI can be that long!!) to our bedroom HD TV. And, of course, I have used TV2 to pipe analog TV throughout our house to other analog TVs, all with just the one 722 receiver.
