Of course you are. Unfortunately, you have not shown that there was any false advertising. There is no doubt the disks are compatible. There is no claim about disk configuration or capacity except...

I don't think you are an exception. It's just the difference between the state of the art and the ideal. I have had -- and do have -- a lot of streamers and every single one disappoints. I...

You're wrong. The other options are not very good. A lot of people do not like to deal with changing inputs or remote controls. Most streamers do not support sleep timers. Simply adding YouTube,...

How do you guys install these DVRs? I guess they can be mounted on the back of the tv, stand, or even on the wall with the IR receiver attached. Can these be placed under another device? Are there...

It does.

When I was a kid, we had to subscribe to TVGuide to know what was on an hour in advance.

I actually have five DTVPals. While I was disappointed when Rovi pulled the plug, we have continued to use the DTVPals with PSIP and it definitely does not suck.

Hind sight is 20/20 (or so). No matter what you installed, you would be disappointed by now. When we bought our home (1990) it was prewired for RG6. At that time, we had one computer. Once we had...
