Would you all advise that I go with Directv ?
If you go to the site that discusses the DirecTV HD recorder, you'll find plenty of issues there too.
The 942 offers a lot more functionality, at least it did for my needs. That is, cabability to watch the 2nd tuner in a different room, across the cable.
I have experienced some of the frustrations that are listed here, but not all of them by any means, and it has been quite enjoyable.
