Spectrum 201 and 210 DVR
Do you miss the Motorola DVR interface?
2 weeks after switching from an old Motorola to the new Spectrum 210 box and trying really hard to like it, I must say... I miss the Motorola DVR for so many reasons. The 210 remote is slow to respond and the software interface is cumbersome, requiring additional steps for simple tasks. There is no channel or clock display on the front panel (despite having the option to select one OR the other when programing it). In the Menu, you cannot select the type of Sport (or Movie, etc)you would like to watch, nor the sequence of future events. To jump a day requires at least 3 additional steps. There is only one cumbersome, multi step, way to record a series AND it does not allow to limit the number of recordings on the series to keep. Thus, you may end up having to go back and delete to avoid filling up the DVR. There is no Live button option. There are only a few things that I like (better picture) but, overall, it has been a painful switch. I can't believe that the Spectrum team did not thoroughly test the 210 DVR. I am hoping for a software upgrade ASAP otherwise,...please bring the Motorola back.
