    Hi Everybody,
    I first contemplated the idea of getting a dish when the apartment complex I moved in forces the tenants to buy cable package from them rather than you having option to choose whatever you want. I said screw 'em but they said I had to have an insurance worth $1,000,000 to install an antenna but turned out they cannot do that neither.

    Then, I started searching for a dish system and decided on getting PVR501. At the same time teh owrd of 701 was floating around so I waited. By looking at the posts, it seems there are hundreds of "bugs" for this line as well. The one most amuzes me is "mine does sometimes too" bug. How on earth same software on same hardware results not only so many different but also random problems? Why put up with such a product? I'm so scared to buy one because I neither have the understanding nor the time to work out if my unit works the way it's supposed to be or not. How much time I have to spend to be able keep up with the software/firmware updates? It appears to be there many very dedicated and knowledgable people on this forum who are very helpfull to others. As much I'd like to have a system of mine, I cannot seem to bite the bullet to fork out so many hundreds with year long commitment to have the service which I may or may not use fully. Am I such a chicken or just one who thinks this particular line of products don't deserve my dime yet? Thanks.
    Ruhi
