My Echo is working great 99% of the time for watching live TV and recorded TV. I'm still not able to view my ripped movie collection, but that's wasn't in my initial expectation, so it doesn't bother me. I watch many channels, including the "problem" channels without any problem! I have a 39" TV and I'm definitely watching HD.
The only issues I've run into are 1) the FF/REW playback is not great such that it's hard to tell how far you've backed up or skipped forward, and 2) it will occasional freeze and require a reboot; this happens maybe once a week.
I have high confidence that Ceton will resolve all the issues that are in their control. If it turns out to be a problem with the chip they chose, then that may be a different matter. In either case, I'm willing to give them the time to resolve it, Beta or not.
