Gee, something that looks worse than the stupid looking simpleTV.


Kinda a draw which is worse. Gotta love the Chinese, they still have no clue how to market anything for the US.


Nothing about it being a DVR.

The same odds as 90% of all the others newbies that don't edit their preferences for notifications. They forget about the post, didn't bookmark the site. End of story.

This company need to correct what they already have instead of importing more 'stuff'. (being nice here)

My sentiments exactly! What they already have(the 3500) is an OK foundation, they just need to correct some of the bugs of which many are probably just a somewhat easy firmware fix. Unfortunately it's probably easier to churn out more of the same, different case and model number


My guess with the 3500 is basically we get what we got and if you can't live with it's bugs/limitations your probably better off looking for more expensive solutions(which may or may not have similar bugs and limitations)



The state of consumer own-able DVRs is quite pathetic, you've got Tivo(at $500+ for the no monthly fee option) and then cheaper DVRs that all have various bugs and limitations, some minor some critical. I purchased my Tivo w/lifetime 4+ years ago and haven't looked back but for a second DVR there is no way I'm going to choke up another $500+ so I'm willing to limp by with the 3500 for my overflow recording. I'd be very hard pressed to have the 3500 be my only DVR(basically no way I could without maybe using 3 in tandem) but for people with simpler needs it sure is cheap



BTW I could find no current sellers of the 4000stb, who knows if or when it will even come to fruition...

Hi Bruce,

The IV-4000stb will not be under production. We are trying to improved the IV-3500STB at this moment will hear me soon once I got the new firmware.

Best Regards,
