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!"
15 January 2009
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: 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.
