Way To Drop the Ball Hal Way Through!
I've loved my Hava box. Choose them over sling media's sling box after I tried the sling box and was left disappointed when I received a faulty unit and was made to pay to return it. My Hava box has worked super well on my HP laptop and fairly well on my iPhones. I was disappointed after I first purchased the Hava box and app because it only worked on iphone while connected to wifi but I still found this product to be worth while although i feel they should have made this particularly important detail more clear. I recently started having issue with this app on my iPhone 4s. The app won't connect to my hava box all of the sudden. I emailed customer support only to get the following response: "Thank you for contacting Monsoon Support.
HAVA is not supported on iOS 5 onwards.
Thank you for choosing Monsoon Multimedia.". Well your not welcome Monsoon Multimedia!" This is ridiculous. I payed good money for this device for specific features that they have just dropped the ball on mid way thought the game. I'm very disappointed in this company. This would be a great product if they would simply update their app. If you only want to watch TV on your PC then this is a decent product otherwise, be cautious of this company.

While it does the job, software support is sorely lacking
I have to be non-biased, even though I won the Hava Titanium WiFi HD and this app from a contest. While this application does the job on the iPhone, their software and support system is rather weak. There hasn't been an update for this application in several months, no support for Mac, the virtual remote tuner doesn't work in Windows Media Center, the PC desktop application doesn't open full-screen when launched, their forums contain a lot of unanswered posts - and most importantly, as they state in the description, this iPhone app crashes on the iPad - it will launch and connect, but crash right after buffering enough video to start playback. I contacted Monsoon Multimedia and it appears that they're in the middle of a relaunch with their product line named Vulcano, so it "may" be "a month or two" before an iPad-compatible version or update to the current version is released. I hope for a quick resolution so I can rate this app and the company better.
Working at a company where good customer service is the main goal I can tell you that what you guys are doing by ignoring your clients comments on the web (where everything is public) you are basically distroying your good reputation. If your customer service doesn't work that's basically trashing all the effort that you guys put on making a great streaming box.
Now about the box: I like it but I hate the poor audio. You guys SHOULD add 3g to the streaming option, please don't give me the usual "apple doesn't allow it" because we all now is because you are not streaming the right format allowed on 3g connections. LET US CHOOSE if we want to get connected using your servers or direct IP so that people like me at work are able to access the stream behind a firewall.
Make the above changes and you will have a very happy client base who will recommend your product to others.
