I tried pulling up the comparison webpage, however it throws the "page is not accessible" error.
What are the biggest differences between the two?
And what am I getting for $100 extra and 2 year old(er) hardware?(M1 is $130 and 500 is $230)
HDMI pass thru is not a big deal, as I think majority of the programming is encrypted anyhow. 99% would go over the component cables...M1 would do the trick.
I can do both Wi-Fi or Wired so either box would work.
What's the purpose of the 500 (SlingTV) remote?
Do I have to use that at home to control my cable box?
Can I still use my DirecTV remote?
My main concern is the user interface as I will be using it with the Amazon FireTV.
Can I pull up the DirecTV or Charter Cable box native menu (DVR shows, guide, ch up or down controls) using my FireTV remote?
I have seen some negative posts on Amazon; however it was a while ago when the 500 model was just introduced.
