I guess they've already merged, but what's still upcoming is switching (I refuse to call it "upgrading" as ViTRo does) TiVos to the Rovi guide, as I expected would happen.

TiVo owners will be so...

Speaking of Rovi, TiVo, or whatever they're calling themselves now (ViTRo?), I seem to be experiencing another of their guide outages. Guide hasn't updated since Sunday :(

Where the problem is most likely to crop up is: Your HomeWorX dies, so you have to buy a new one and plug the old HDD into it. Both DVRs may look identical, but the new one will most likely have a...

Where it really bites is in the recordings list when you've recorded many episodes of one show.

PSIP (broadcast) guides don't have episode titles, but most of us use the Rovi (Internet) guide, and...

I haven't really had a chance to try anything yet. Remuxing will probably fix it, though; it's just annoying that an extra step is required with the new boxes.

Regarding Airbox, I just made an interesting discovery. While the Airbox video is encrypted and unwatchable, on my old box with iView V13 firmware, both the EPG and audio work on Airbox channels.

If it's new enough to exchange, give it a try; you might see a difference with another DTA880 (although I doubt it). One of the problems CleCakYngMfd encountered was a bad connection within the STB...

Well, the CMTV channels don't change that often. He can probably just post "as of Aug 8 2016" on the list, and recheck the lineup once a month or so. I agree about giving instructions on TitanTV,...

Well, they seem to, at least. When I switch from 1080i to 1080p using component cables, the screen has to resynchronize with the signal. And my HomeWorX says it's set to 1080p at 60 Hz. But since I'm...

Yes, every MStar box I've seen has had HDMI, composite video, and L/R audio outputs. I used to have rows for them in my table, but every column had a green X so they seemed redundant.

If you download the user guide, it does explain how to record - and how to set the time-shift buffer size. So presumably it has both functions, but it is odd the main Web page makes no mention of...

I added them. Thanks.

Because of your high bit-rate channels, you're sort of the "stress test" for the DVR+ community! Let us know how the HGST Touro S works for you.

OK, I see what's going on. They're using the same remote for both boxes. The 7002 can't record (yet) but I bet the 7003 can.
I hate to be negative but it seems rather pointless. Despite the...

7200 RPM is nice for a PC drive. Doesn't make much difference to a DVR though.

BTW, I'm collecting a running list of good & bad drive models here:...
