"The upgrade software ruins this model"1.5 starson by JimmyTag
Pros: DVD BURNER
Cons: THE SOFTWARE UPDATE FOR THE UNIT ACTUALLY CAUSES DAMAGE TO THE UNIT. ONCE IT HAS BEEN LOADED, THE UNIT WILL NOT RESPOND TO THE REMOTE ACCURATELY. IT WILL DRIVE YOU CRAZY WHEN TRYING TO LOAD INFO IN.
Summary: I noticed this problem with the remote response once I loaded the update that you need to get from Humax. It makes it so that the unit won't respond as well from the remote. I know for sure that it isn't my remote because I had the problem with the original remote as well as the Logitech Harmony remote that I have. What really convinced me was when I called Humax for technical support and they told me that the problem was actually with the software and that they are currently working on a patch to fix it. This just aggravates me beyond belief. The last thing I wanted to do is buy this thing from Best Buy for like 500.00 and then run into this prob lem. The 2nd problem I have is that I bought a lifetime membership to Tivo for an additional 399.00 and that only lasts with the current unit you have. If you switch units, you void your contract for the lifetime membership. If I could do it over again, I would definitely buy another unit. Now I am just dealing with this remote nonsense saying a prayer that they come up with this so called patch. I do not blame Best Buy at all even though the store manager I had spoken to had no clue about this problem. Do yourself a favor and do not purchase this unit.
