I use it sometimes but I wish it offered trickplay features.

I use it on occasion. It's nicer viewing on a large screen. But as dpeters11 said, higher quality would be nice.
Agreed. I would use it more if the quality was better.

i like it but i hate that i can't fast forward or rewind it. if i miss something cause the kids i have to start all over again, very frustrating.
+1. Good concept to add it, but once again, poor execution, ie media share.

Haven't used it since, and doubt I ever will.
I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Youtube videos have been available on DIRECTV DVRs for some time now. So, what do you think? Do you watch Youtube Videos on your DVR? Is it easy and fun?
I enjoy it whenever I need to check something... product review, how-to, etc.
Though I miss the more robust YouTube features (account log-in, rewinding, fast forwarding, etc.) on my dearly departed TiVo Series 3, I am very pleased that DirecTV added it to their DVRs. Thankfully, they made some improvements with it along with the HD GUI, so maybe they will continue to improve it.

Yes, we use it often and enjoy it. Would like to be able to use trickplay, but that's minor.
Add my vote for ability to use trickplay. Have enjoyed using it often also.
