Well, I'm throwing in the towel. I wanted the Echo to be a solid solution to ditching my cable boxes, but there is just no way. The audio skipping, bad de-interlacing and the latest update killed FFW/REW preview. My return window is up this week so it's going back. I can get a Xbox 360 for the same or less money. If the Echo was a sub $100 item I might stick it out. Instead, I'll watch from the outside to see what happens with it.
Now, Ceton support has been solid and I have no issue with them. I sincerely want the Echo to be all it can be, but I just can't deploy it in my household for the wife & kids in its current state. I'll still follow this thread to watch its development and may certainly revisit the product once it matures.
