I am looking to set up Roomie for a client; this will be my first experience with the system. I noticed that DirectTV/Tivo have IP capability, but Dish does not. My impression is that using Tivo via Roomie offers a graphic-rich experience with good capabilities for control (i.e. you can control everything on the Tivo just as though you were using a physical remote). My client is on Dish Network–or at least will be once the install is complete. Will Dish have a similar level of control with Roomie via IR: will the client be able to navigate the Dish guide, change channels, and playback DVR content. Or will they have to use the factory Dish remote to get full functionality?
It is a simple question, but one that I can’t seem to get a full answer for without playing with the system. Thanks for the input.
