Latest 6- tuner DVR Poll...
Hello Satch & others. So I had to cancel/ postpone my Spectrum account for one month so I can come back as a new customer and get decent rates again. There's still no better service because l I'm.convinced local cable (and all the respective channels) is still much better than the national streaming and notoriously missing channels there.
That said have to return an sought-after Arris 3600 which I'm quite sad about. However, when I went to my local Spectrum store to return it they told me not only do they have more 3600s, they also have the Technicolor 9865 and even a couple Samsungs! Say what...that coveted Samsung is still floating around ?
Also I returned my DOCSIS 3.0 modem. I like the tabletop ones that sit flat rather than the ugly tower 3.1 versions. If I only get 200 400 speed do I really need a 3.1?
Is becoming quite obvious that Spectrum is trying to vanquish the DVRs by raising the rates astronomically and pushing streaming...but let's face it there's no better way to record your own crap and have the local control, and also no better way to get 5.1 surround sound. To me it's worth it--although getting a bit ridiculous in cost these days. I also hear there are further trying to kill them by pushing the Spectrum Guide to the old Hardware--which is a real dumb idea.
So my question to you and everybody: if you had your choice between the 6 tuner DVRs, which one of those would you choose and why? Are all three of them 1tb hard drive models? Do any of them *not* have led lights that could guide a plane to O'Hare Airport? :)
