"Worst that Directv box"

jbermant, CNET
19 October 2009
  • Pros: The picture quality is excellent.
  • Cons: Very counter-intuitive. Font on remote very-very small and not back-lit. The remote buttons are not well laid out. On screen guide not well laid out and often confusing. Too many steps to record a show. The guide only goes out 1 week.

"Way toooo difficult to use. Doesn't compare to TIVO!"

  • Pros: Lots of storage. Record 2 shows at once.
  • Cons: Menu is all over the place. You can't back record a show in progress. It only records from the place you press record. Tivo puts this box to shame. I feel bad I switched service and are stuck with this box!

  • Pros: It works with Dish Network when TiVo won't.
  • Cons: It's about as difficult to program a recording as your old VHS tape recorder, and just as frustrating.

"This DVR is awful"

mmcary, CNET
13 October 2008
  • Pros: Allows attachment of external HDD. Hardware specs are good.
  • Cons: The software on this unit is the worst DVR software I have ever seen. User interface is much worse than DVR unit from Time Warner (Scientific Atlanta) I had before switching. Dish need to hire who knows what they're doing to fix this DVR software.
