Hughes GAEBO Receiver Rating
Posted 11 June 2002 - 07:41 AM
I have an RCA DRD450RG and this receiver stinks. It takes about 5 seconds for the guide to come up on the screen. It also takes about 5 seconds for it to react when you change the channel. (pushing each number individually.

How well does the Hughes GAEBO receiver work? I am thinking about changing receivers.
I have two of the GAEBO's. Overall I'm satisfied. Like some others here (and on other boards) my caller ID works intermittently. Also, am I the only one who thinks "advancing ahead" in the guide takes a wee bit too long....at least IMHO it seems to take longer than it does with my D-45 (4th gen) and E-45 (5th gen). Also, I notice that *sometimes* when I try to hit previous channel it takes me to the previous channel I may have checked out on the bottom banner for show information.....NOT the previous channel I was just viewing.
All in all, I like it (as I do ALL my Hughes receivers) better than the RCA's I 've used....and the Sony's a few friends have.

Here, here! It is annoying that the guide automatically switches the watched channel on you. You should have to hit Select or something.

i don't know why it never dawned on my to try that huge button in the middle....

Is there any way to get this thing to stay on the channel I am currently watching while I surf the guide. Having the channel change everytime I switch the guide cursor is very annoying. The Hughes web site says the receiver is supposed to be able to do this, but the owner's manual is really bare bones and leaves alot of options out completely. I tried their 800# customer support, but there is never an option to speak to someone live. any help would be greatly appreciated.
As far as I know, there is no way of keeping the channel you're watching while surfing the guide, which is a MAJOR pain for me (and most, I'd imagine).
