    I read often read reviews of Toshiba equipment that indicate a 'poor user
    interface'. Figuring it couldn't be worse then my Sony's stuff, I just
    bought a Toshiba DVR. WOW! what a cluttered mess.

    For example, I would have expected the RGB output to be set to 480p and on
    the off chance that had to be 480i it would be in a setup menu. The unit
    defaults to 480i and there's a button on the remote that does nothing but
    let you change from interlaced to progressive. I can't believe they added
    to the clutter of buttons to have a button to do something that is a one
    time setting.

    BTW: There's so many buttons that they have a flip out on the remote that
    provides additional buttons. It won't be long before I break the hindge.

    F.W.I.W.

    Just don't let yourself go all unhinged over this :)
