And PVR's have no on demand. And the search function is messed up.

Funny, my PVR has fully functional On Demand and search, while not as good as before also works.

The items listed are some of my biggest complaints. Throw in:

 

6. While playing back a recording, the info button exits the playback instead of smoothly displaying the information as in live view;

 

7. It is impossible to see scheduling conflicts;

 

8. Without the details of the scheduled recordings, one cannot make changes to channels or time slots;

 

9. The piles of tiles is supposed to look like a computer interface to allow quick access to your recordings. That only works if you have a few piles. With over 40 piles on my screen and no mouse, keyboard or scroll bar, the slow interface just doesn't cut it.

 

I own my box. Please return my PVR to is prior usable state.

I take it you have a NB2 because a scheduling with a NB3 is hard to imagine.  What happens when you try scheduling 3 recordings overlapping? The 8300 gives me a choice of which of the three to cancel. The only unknown is what happens when a scheduled show comes back off hiatus causing a conflict. If Navigatr was written with only the NB3 in mind, I can see where they may have ignored possible conflicts due to the extremely low probability it could happen except as an experiment.

Curious to know if NB3 could technically run SARA?

Like others here, my 8300 ran better that anything.

When they upgraded the interface(software) to it a few years ago, I actually insisted that they roll it back to original software.

They then put some kind of "do not upgrade" flag on my account & I was fine for a couple of years after that.

Now I long to have SARA on my NB3!

Previously (in RTN and July28 Navi) they were also there but completely hidden, mysteriously appearing when the next program was <6 days away.   Depending on ones recording/viewing habits they built-up over time and could only be removed with a factory-reset which also wipes out all your recordings.

 


They were not completely hidden.

 

You had options to show Recordings, Scheduled, by PVR etc. and by Series.  If you went into the Series, they were there.

tv call display doesnt work with navigator. I can boot the box and it comes back for a few hours. This has been going on for a few weeks now.

With the NB2 it gives you a choice if there is a conflict when you are initialling setting it up.  If a conflict occurrs after this...which actually happens a lot...show runs after by 1 or 2 minutes, comes back from break, etc., (happens to me about 4 or 5 times every week)...what Navigatr does is just drops one of the shows and doesn't record it...not sure how it decides. Pre-navigatr it would have a danger sort of symbol in your listing letting you know of the conflict so you could fix it.  This new way of just dropping recordings at random is EXTREMELY aggravating and not what any properly designed PVR should do!

No problem whasoever on my box. Perhaps you need a service visit or new hardware
