I switched to the G2 to accommodate moving my tv around the house due to a baby, I completely regret it. This is a half backed, old, stale, cheap, half-assed waste of time of a product. DTV should be embarrassed with this thing. Power came back on from the storm, main tv works fine, upstairs the box can't find the server, and when it does it plays 1 sec, freezes then plays then back to the can't find server screen. Ran self check on all units no problems detected. Not sure what to do at this point besides smashing the thing in the parking lot. I've had so many problems in a month of owning this thing. Screen saver pops up for no reason, remote is junk made of super slick plastic with oddly placed buttons, when switching back to source sometimes I get a gray screen, other times I get lines with robotic voice, the on and off buttons do the same function, not sure why you need two of them, disconnects all the time, had to unplug clients and head unit a few times, if you use fast forward X4, it literally will jump way too far ahead, it's not smooth nor linear, the jump back is worthless, no buffer when off, the recording function is awful, I can't figure out how to get the box to stop recording it's highly questionable 3 times every day on different channels, I can keep going. I should have just ran the cable wire and stuck with my old boxes. Now I'm screwed. After sleeping in 85 degree heat with no power for days, all I wanted was a shower and to watch tv in my bed, but nope, this stupid pos doesn't work. If you are thinking of upgrading to the G2, don't.
