I got the Homeworx because at the time, iView's firmware and remote weren't as good, and I caught the HW on sale at Amazon. But as you say, iView has improved their remote, their box has a display, and usually, it's cheaper.
I think iView was the first OEM to market this box, and early versions of the firmware had some serious issues, and originally, the iView display showed a sequential channel number rather than the station's actual channel number, many folks complained it was too bright, and there was no way to turn it off.
Not sure if later firmware updates addressed these issues, but I think their current firmware version is pretty close to the HW. There are others on this board with iViews who can better answer that, though.
