Re: Looking into Vizio Co-Star
I have mine pre ordered. I cant wait to hook it up. we have been using Roku for over a year and been fine with it. But having 2 kids they are missing on some shows and we couldn’t pass up the offer on Direc TV. Free HD and 3D included. only thing I bought was their HR34 Home Media Center DVR with 1tb hard drive and record 5 shows at one time.
Now when I hook up the Co-Star to it and also have ON-Live...this is going to be a good time. I have been in talks with Vizio and On-Live about the controller issue. With On-Live they have "bragging moments" On their universal controller you can see a rewind, fast forward, play, stop and record buttons on the controller.So your able to record and post your bragging moment persay and post it.
At first Vizio and even On-Live’s website state its compatible with Co-star, On-Live customer service replied its not compatible...but a few responses later and they said if its on the website then they guess it is.
But since the Co-Star has a usb port, a usb controller will work such as the Batarang ps3 controller that is usb based will work.The remote on the Co-Star has two sides...the bottom side can be used for some basic gaming. But I do see On-live working very well and with their $9.99 playpack is an awesome deal. play all their playpack games for free.
I just really like the whole "see who is playing what at any time as they are playing it right then is pretty sweet and the whole just start playing and no wait is awesome. I really cannot wait for Google TV.
