1. I most likely won't be able to do anything about this, but channel changing on my PVR-250 with cable connected directly to the card seems extremely slow compared to my tivo. Also, picture quality is horrible, is this an issue or is something in my setup likely the culprit?
2. The UI needs quite a bit of polishing, text is too long for most fields, inconsistencies throughout setup and configuration, bad graphics, sloppy feeling navigation within the main UI if not using a gyration remote, etc. The 704 video made it all appear very impressive, but the text issues are apparent there as well. I've searched for information on skinning, but didn't come up with much useful information, just some stuff that really doesn't make sense. This is the area I feel I can contribute to, but the documentation is difficult to understand and find.
