RE: Hopper 3 Installation

Do they require the tech to come out to change over? What was the total cost?

RE: Co Pilot Android App

They offer advantages like turn by turn voice instruction and real time where am I info. "Turn right now on the unnamed road." Splash! Look up at the Co Pilot app and it verifies that I am in fact in the river.

RE: Co Pilot Android App

If you try to use the app, review your route VERY carefully. Doing 2 test routes in RV mode netted me some serious errors. Routed me over a bridge that never existed, sent me over business 41 in Fl. rather than on 75, and sent me on the Balt.Wash. Parkway that is restricted to cars. CoPilot went right to the Uninstall can. Your results may vary. Is this the paid version? Before I bought it I saw several posts about problems with the Anroid phones but not the I phones.It was the Free version, but from what I understand from their ads that are on it,everything is the same except pay or trial adds voice navigation and a few other extras. The maps are the same.

It is why one should not depend solely on a GPS but use ones brains along with a maps and road signs. All to easy to let the GPS box tell you what to do, then blame the GPS when something goes wrong..The fact that these errors were so bad compared to other GPS units was the reason I mentioned it. S&T 2011 & 2014, Google, Maps.ME,2 other free map apps and even TomTom did not have this mystery bridge or bizarre routing. I did double check the settings.

RE: Need OTA DVR advice

Reviews look fairly good. Some ex. hard drive compatibility, and set up issues, but there always are. How much is the monthly fee for the guide?At only $5 per month he must only get 1/3 of the info you get on your $15 per month TIVO.

RE: Need OTA DVR advice

By the looks of TIVO stock it appears more people share my view than yours. :)

RE: Need OTA DVR advice

$15 a month for the program guide? That is ridiculous when a Netflix subscription is $9. If you ever have used a TIVO you would know it's much more than just a guide that you are paying for. TIVO program guide.If you think it is worth it that is great for you. I think it is ridiculous to pay $15 a month for a guide of the OTA channels. That is 1/2 way to a basic cable subscription. People on this post and others are trying to save money by cutting the cord. TIVO makes money selling you the hardware and keeps taking it out of your pocket forever if you want to use the hardware as designed.

RE: Amazon Prime TV

Prime Fire stick is also an easy way to rent movies. You will find that the commercials become more annoying after using a streaming service.From what I have seen on Prime, renting or buying is exactly what they are trying to get you to do. Even shows like old HGTV stuff are pay.

RE: Amazon Prime TV

Is the TV free with a regular Prime membership? How does the Prime Fire Stick work? I have Amazon Prime for the free shipping & have thought about the TV part but was unsure how all that worked.Just access it thru your computer to see what it is like. The Firestick basically sends it to your TV.

Amazon Prime TV

Does anyone find anything worth watching on Prime. I am on the fence to get it for the shipping but looking thru all the Prime content I would really have to be desperate to sit down and watch 99.9% of the content I can find on the service. Am I missing something?

RE: Need OTA DVR advice

I also have both the MediaSonic Homeworx HW150 and HW180. The HW180 comes with a better remote IMO. They work well. You can generally get both from Newegg.com for less than $35.I have tried these also. They do work but are certainly not a comparable replacement for a DTV DVR. It is what should be expected for $35. They work but are not simple operation with multiple tuners that the OP may be looking for.

RE: M$'s XP 'red X' scare tactics again - unbelievable

MS is calling it a "service" now. No longer an operating system. There is obviously a reason for that. $$$. Look at all the apps in 10 they are trying to sell you for a monthly fee. They are not giving all the people with 7 "free" upgrades for nothing. I smell a rat.

RE: For those of you that are "challenged" backing up

Our fearless leaders in DC will mandate this as standard safety equip. by 2018 and increase the price of vehicles by another $1,000.

RE: Best Android GPs app no cell required...why?

Sygic in my opinion is not the one. It uses TomTom maps which are terrible. I tested it this weekend on a trip to Fla. and the routes seemed even worse than my TomTom portable that is so bad we don't use it. Nice looking app though. Maybe it works well in UK.:)

RE: Best Android GPs app no cell required...why?

Unlike iPad's most all Android tablets have GPS chips, for iPad it's only the Cellular versions. Android Tablet GPS systems with offline maps: CoPilot is OK Sygic is better.With Sygic do you have to load all the maps along the route you are going?

RE: If You Had To Buy A Tablet ?

I used Android tablets for a few years and liked them fine but once I got a Windows tablet I stopped using the Android tablets completely. I can't see myself ever getting another Android tablet. I really like the fact that I can run the exact same software on my Windows tablet that I run on my desktop and laptop. I run the same browser and the same Office software. Printing, file transfers and networking all work the same as my other Windows machines. Many Windows tablets have full size USB ports that work with any of my USB devices. I have a MS Surface Pro 3 that cost well above the OP's budget but there are less expensive Windows tablets out there. I started out with a Dell Venue 8 Pro which cost around $300. Dell Venue 11 Pro - $349Even with only limited time on it, I have said that already about a Windows tablet.

RE: If You Had To Buy A Tablet ?

I went with the Samsung Galaxy Tab E. $179. So far seems to do everything we wanted.Very easy setup without much bloatware. Firefox for Android seems really strange. Have a lot to learn about Android and all of Google's spying tactics. :) Now we can be like everyone else. Sit there with a tablet or smart phone and ignore everyone and everything in the room. :)

RE: If You Had To Buy A Tablet ?

Thanx for everyone's suggestions. I went to look at some last night. Leaning toward the Samsung 10" Galaxy Tab E. Or the Amazon 10" Fire HD. The thing I did not care for with the Amazon is it seems to be a sales platform for the purchase of additional Amazon products and services 1st and a tablet 2nd. Since we are not currently Prime subscribers, the Samsung seems like a better fit.
