Sorry to jump into you guys thread but we just got Navigator here in Greensboro NC. Boy is it a big improvement over SARA. The con's are it's a bit slower than SARA, we lost the copy to vcr or dvd burner feature. The pro's are huge. First we now have multible bookmarks that you do not lose if tv turns off or someone starts a new recorded shows. So far I got 8 shows bookmarked and all work great. We got the TIVO jump back feature when rewinding it works great. Great news we finially have a true series manager that you can set priorties with and it works great. Also if you have a conflit Navigator will look for a later showing and auto record it. We have a TIVO like 28 day rule that if Navigator has recorded a show it will not record it againfor 24 to 28 days without being told to do so. Shows with improper guide data such as NFL live or news shows on FOX and CNN and Daily show or exceptions. However for this we still have time slot recording. The search engine and theme search blows sara away. Very tivo or passport like. I hear keyword search will be added in next couple of updates.To advance to another day just hit 1 on the keypad and then the right button on the control. I was watching Panthers football yesterday hit 7 and advance and wow was watching what would be on next sunday while watching this sunday. Could ever do that with sara.All in all except for being a bit slower its a big improvement. Also my Navigator is very stable. In the two weeks I have had it I have had no missed recordings or reboot. Guess most stability problems have now been solved. I was not loking forward to Navigator but now I say where have you been. I used to have passport at a small beach cabin I owned and Navigator is now very close to that. Hopes ths helps guys. Don't be afraid. If it works as well for yo as it does for me you will love it. The biggest drawback is learning to use it. TWC does have answeres on demand back that helps. Once you master it I tink you will all be pleased. Oh yea you can still start from beginning while recording without being kicked out. Cheers all.
