DIRECTV box vs stream through Samsung TV

I'm streaming DirecTV through my Samsung TV and having difficulty navigating, viewing recordings & a few other things. Should I use a DirecTV box & remote instead?

Yes. The Samsung DirecTV Stream app is among the most buggy apps out there. You'll be  much happier with a Stream box. I think they're still selling refurbished boxes for $49, so check their website.
