Voom Question

I agree... too bad they don't have a recording device. Personallly, I can't watch 'normal TV' after so many years of being a PVR user. Anyway, my question is this: I read a review in a magazine on 'Voom' and the reviewer said that 'it takes a full 7 seconds to change channels' on that receiver!! If that's true it seems like it would be a 'nightmare' to channel surf. I remember way back in the 'old days' when DirecTV just came out. They had 1-bit receivers and it seemed soooo slow to change the channels. They were about 4 seconds to change channels as I recall. I can't imagine '7 SECONDS!!!' What's your experience like? Thanks for any info you can give.
