"This product is a great ...

By Mark W Verified Reviewer from Undisclosed on 11/24/2006

"This product is a great deal, especially for the price! You get DVR service with no monthly subscription! Yes, it only works with the built-in TV Guide features of Toshiba DLPs, and that only works with cable cards. No, it doesn't only work with 2004 Toshiba DLPs; my DLP is a 2005 model, and it works with it beautifully. (Toshiba hasn't updated the Symbio packaging or manual since 2004, but your TV manual will tell you whether or not it works with a Symbio.) The HD recordings are every bit as good as live TV. My only regret is that you can't get it with a bigger hard drive since 16 hours of HD content is not a lot."

"I ended up returning ...

By Ignacio G Verified Reviewer from Undisclosed on 02/26/2005

I ended up returning mine [...] because I suscribe to DishNetwork (Satellite servide) and Symbio only works with Cable service. The demo in the recorder is super and I'm pretty certain that recording HD programs would be good. However, I have to give Toshiba and TVguide a negative write up because of the limited usage of the recorder. It is ONLY usable with 2004 TOSHIBA TV's and the TVGUIDE feature only usable with CABLE service, too restrictive!!. You'd think that it would be to their advantage to produce a recorder that the masses could use but no they get real proprietary and restrictictive. The WORST part is that their literature regarding the Symbio does not clearly state that it is ONLY usable with CABLE service.
