DirecTivo Software Update (Too Little, Too Late)
May 6, 2005
Matt Haughey is reporting that an upgrade to version 6.2 is in the pipe for DirecTivos.
I’m sure no DirecTivo owner will be surprised to hear that this does not include any sign of Home Media Option or pretty much anything else of much value. It’s not even being rolled out for my Hughes unit yet.
So much for DirecTV.
This is the last straw that will send me to Dish and their new dual tuner 942 HD PVR.
I’m sure the user interface on it will suck terribly, but I’m tired of owning a dead-end orphan PVR, and $250 for this is a lot easier to swallow than the price for the HD Tivo.
As for the rest of the house, I’m sure MCE won’t care whether I use basic DirecTV receivers or Dish receivers.
Anybody want a slightly used DirecTivo and a couple of basic DirecTV receivers? Make me an offer.
