Thanks, I wouldn't argue with that. I would have to do a lot of reading before I would make that decision.
Having said that, I have had DVRs for around 10 years now starting with the old Microsoft Dishplayer and they certainly weren't without their bugs and after that had a Dish 501. Neither of those 2 had the kind of annoying bugs that this thing has. Granted, they weren't HD 2 tuner boxes but at least they would respond to remote commands. That reminds me of another thing about the Motorola.....an infra red remote??? Come on people, join the 21st century. My first Dishnetwork receivers 10 years ago had RF remotes and it's sure hard to go back to IR and having to point the remote at the box all the time.
Having read through a few pages of the main thread about these Moto boxes I see now I'm not alone in my dislike for this thing.
At least Dish would send out software updates for their receivers and try to provide fixes for their problems, it doesn't seem to me that Motorola is.
Sorry for the rant
