Review of new 500 GB D2H DVR box-Features-Pro:1.Can record 2 channels at a time and view anyone of those two that time.2.Now dolby digital audio is coming from hdmi. My tv is a certified dolby digital device.3.Pic quality is superior than my hd box.4.Have two usb port..I think we can view only picture through it...not tested.5.Signal strength and quality in satellite management looks true..unlike hd box where all the times signal strength is 100%.6.Very good feature mark-skip-watch..at the time of recording you can mark the advertisement period and at the time of watching you can skip those periods.7.Box looks good.8.Got a seagate 500gb 5400rpm hdd in it.Cons:1.While playing back recordings sound is distorted all the time..which is really unbearable cause it's there through whole clip...be it hd/sd recordings.2.Take long time to boot up.3.Remote is uncomfortable..have once off recording button at top and stop recording button at bottom.If you guys can suggest some solutions on audio distortions it will be awesome cause D2H guys are still unable to resolve this.One guy from Q&A visited my place...still no resolution...not sure what to do now.

Review of new 500 GB D2H DVR box-

5.Signal strength and quality in satellite management looks true..unlike hd box where all the times signal strength is 100%.


Jaymin bhay ab to vishwas karo. Actually mene kuchh baar notice kiya hai agar 60% koi baar down ho to d2h kuchh kam kar deta hai.


7.Box looks good.



Muze nahi lagta naya achchha hai, muze to puranahi pyara hai.

2.Take long time to boot up.


Ye to hona hi tha. Mera dvr drive 149 gb hai aur wo 80% bhara hai to boot up ke lie 4 minute lagta hai. Naya to 500 gb ka hai. Kya hota hoga? :D

3.Remote is uncomfortable..have once off recording button at top and stop recording button at bottom.


Soch raha hoo naya kharid loo kam se kam naye dvr ka feel to aayega :D

It's 75 cm now..though they are thinking about installing a 90 cm dish cause as per them recording audio distortion is occurring due to low signal quality and strength.The one and only main issue is audio distortion during playback...does this happen in old dvr box?
