Oh yes it's the worst. And it's not just me, customers hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it. I'm writing this post to let Time Warner LA know that this cannot stand for long before customers such as myself switch back to satellite providers. I'm talking very soon, like as soon as I can get a day off from work to have an installer come by my house.

What sets this HD-DVR piece of garbage apart from the competition is...if you tell it to record a series it will record every friggin instant of the show, even if you tell it only to record one copy of each new episode. I end up with 10 recordings of the Daily Show every day.

But worst of all it crashes whenever it feels like it.

And it's not the individual machine. I've been through 3 of them. 2 at my previous apartment. Oh, and I love it when the machine lags, than jumps 5 minutes all of a sudden...hit jump forward more than once and you're asking for it. I've spoiled the ending of Top Chef twice this way.

Not cool.
