I'm actually loving my Whole Home DVR. I had it installed last week, and Cox is giving a 1/2 off discount on the $75 installation fee. Considering it took the tech about 4 hours to set it up perfectly, I'm not complaing about the installation fee like a lot of you have been. It's NOT an easy set-up.
Anyway, I also had a problem with shows stopping a little early, and I also have added extra recording time at the end to combat this problem. You people have to realize this is a work in progress and it's not going to be 100% flawless or perfect this quick.
I'm enjoying the added HBO/Showtime HD channels in the Plus package, and am looking forward to whatever additions are coming in the future.
My only gripe is that you're not able to control live tv (FF/RW, etc) on the slave unit. But there's also a way around that. If you record the show you're watching on the slave box from the master, you can pause and rewind, giving yourself a buffer. There's 500 gigs on the new hard drive and I haven't come close to filling it up yet. Then, just delete the show when you're done with it. Maybe there will be a fix in the future for this, but that's a good workaround for it for the time being.
