I'm about to subscribe to DirecTV and I'm wanint to get a DVR. I've done a little bit of research but I have found very little info. What I have found makes it sound like these (Hughes, RCA, Samsung, and Phillips) are all the same machines with differnt cases. Can anyone tell me if that's true? Do they all have the same menu's and everything?
The reviews on circuitcity.com say the Hughes doesn't have color coded menu's for sport and movies, etc... That is a pretty essential feature for me and I can't believe all of them would not have that. I also read the Samsung has an optical cable connection, whild I didn't see that listed on any of the others.
So are these things really all the same or what?
