I'm having Fios TV installed next week- I see all these complaints on the internet about the Fios DVR. I am so confused. Is the HD-DVR better than the Home Media HD-DVR?  Is the 7200 model better than the 6500 model?   I ordered the Home Media HD-DVR --I'm worried it's going to be a problem to operate. The more I read about this the more mixed up I get. Recommendations??

Your best bet is the 72xx series DVR. And the big reason to get the Home media DVR is for the DVR streaming to other HD or SD set to boxes. You can stream music and images from your PC too, but I never used it and never will. They are testing the new media manager to stream videos, but I know that's been going on a while now. As far as all the issues the DVRs have don't worry. The are rolling out the new firmware 1.6.2 that fixes most if not all the issues with them. I have had no issues in the last few weeks after I got the new firmware.

thanks. I had one more question - does the home media DVR stream to both standard boxes AND HD boxes? I thought I read somewhere that it only would stream to a standard box. Does it also stream to an HD box - does it stream HD content to an HD box?

It will stream Sd and HD to a HD box, and SD to a SD box.
