No. It's missing many things that are talked about in the specs. It's very slow (after learning a dozen ir codes or so it might be 3 minutes before you can switch to the browser or guide). No ir database in iPronto. No remote extender yet (why it doesn't work with the current one is beyond me. A 802.11 remote extender might have trouble working in other rooms in the house). The guide is almost unusable . You can only see shows on at one time. You can't look at NBC from 8 - 11. Only at 8 or 9. The genres in the guide are incomplete and inaccurate. I don't know how to use the guide watch feature with my over the air hi def channels. I have directv and terrestrial antenna. When I select directv for the guide I get channel 11 when I need 11-1. The windowing is more limited that demonstrated and won't let you scroll within a partial screen window. I could go on but I'm tired. I wondered why the iPronto took so long to be delivered. Now that I have one I wish they had taken much longer.
