I'll try to remember to take a look tonight. But I'm not going to attempt anything. I'm on the fence about returning it.
I've left the unit on all the time to see if that improves the Program Guide data. I haven't been home much to monitor it, but the last couple of times I used it, all the Program Names were there, however some of the descriptions were still missing. But even if the Program Guide gets to working well, I may return the unit just based on the poor design of the manual recording interface. I was willing to settle for manual recordings but this unit would not make a good "VCR."
I may reconsider the PC DVR option. I'll have to do more research there. I'm thinking about TIVO, but the TIVO assumes you have a wired network connection. If you want to use a phone line, you'll need a $30 phone/usb adapter. If you want wireless networking, you'll need the wireless adapter which is $60 to $90 depending on whether you get the g or n standard. Instead of a wireless adapter, i would buy a wireless switch for $50 and then run a cable from the switch to the TIVO. The point is, a TIVO would cost me $100 (unit) + $500 (lifetime service) + $30 to $90 (means to connect to network or phone line) . If I'm going to spend that much money, might as well get a computer, hmm?
