The receiver picked more channels than other receivers I had. The User's Manual does not tell you everything you want to know. No contacts for tech support. I had to spend 4-6 hours browsing the internet to get SOME information from forums but, still I could not download the firmware. When I set it to record a 2-hour show it created about 20-30 small files. Now I gave up on using the PVR.

this box needs a $42.00usd Donglewhy we need a dongle when others dont use a dongle, its should be cheaper, when i calculate, it worths it money by checking how much months i used it for, it dont worth the price, best pay for what u want to see or download high def and watch it later, this box and dongle should worth $50usd for the most ,buy the cw600 or the 650 model, or DONT BUY,download what u want to see, Tube Plus or Blink X, shows all your latest show u want to see on cable. i will not buy again unless the price is much cheaper only because i have new satilite and lnb set up on my house, CAPTIVE WORKS MAKE A PRODUCT THAT WORTHS ITS PRICE, i bought 3 boxes and dongle costing $456usd but where i live in the caribbean it cost me $800usd total cost to reach me, all boxes just stop working within less than a 18 months cant even get part or support, Great Job Captive Works, if any 1 can read and assist me with my 3 boxes i will be greatful

This unit started out working great then within a week the display screen went scrambled, which didnt affect the general operations on the unit at first then it started freezing to the point where I had to hard shot down the box to get it back up and working and even then sometimes that had to be done twice, but when it was working the picture and audio quality was very good and that problem occurred with another unit I purchased as well, this unit works great when it is working.
