I'm going to have one of these up and running later this month, and I'm wondering if anyone here has used one yet. I'm particularly interested in knowing if there are any problems with it that I need to be aware of.
Ronald Epstein said:I also know that this new DVR comes nowhere close to the slick interface and features of Tivo.
I have a Hughes Tivo DirecTV DVR in my living room and a non-Tivo DirecTV DVR in my bedroom.
To me the biggest drawback to the DirecTV DVR is the inability to easily switch back and forth between two football games while still getting 30 minutes of recording on each. The only way I could figure out how to do it with the DirecTV DVR is to actually press record on one of the channels and then toggle back and forth.
There is a mountain between me and the NYC stations, so the only way I'm going to see the locals in HD is through DirecTV.
The good news is that the DirecTV DVR in the bedroom will be replaced by the Tivo DVR which I currently have in the living room.
