I am going to take advantage of this offer because it will take DirecTV years to broadcast as much HDTV as what Voom has out now. I was waiting for the DirecTV HDTV Tivo, but this deal here looks too good to be true. I cant believe I'm going to get this with $0 down and no commitment though. I dont mean to come accross so negative, but theres gotta be a catch. You cannot get this deal online ?? I'd be interested to hear from someone who has called and gotten this deal. I do have a couple questions, which way does this dish aim ? Is there a HDTV PVR in the future ?

....would like to upgrade to a PVR in the not too distant future. Anyone know anything regarding that?

VOOM will have one reciever with HD recording capabilites that can be broadcast throughout your house, to every tv. Only one recording device needed.
# DVR functionality available on all connected TVs
# Single, in-home library of recorded programs
# Single, whole-home list of parental controls and other user preferences
# Multiple, independent sessions among connected TVs
# Follow-Me TVTM: Pause-and-play seamless viewing from TV to TV
Here is the Voom press release in case you missed it.

I just got off the phone with Rainbow TV's corporate office. They said they are ahead of schedule with the development of their DVR. This is a conformation of what I was told by a VOOM CSR. They said the DVR is based on the Motorola 580 and that they are working on the software to turn the 550 into a thin client. The thin client is what is holding the DVR up and that it will be late in the third quarter to the beginning of the fourth quarter that the whole system will come out. As for the price of the unit, the person that I talked to said any upgrades will be in favor of current customers and that VOOM is sensitive to the backlash they are receiving from early adopter about the current promotions. VOOM will also start using MP4 (H 2.64 10 A/V) when they reach their last major milestone in adding new programming (no actual date but it will me sooner than anyone thinks. I joked and said "I think today") The last thing I was told was that the new system (Quote "being much more advanced than anything that is currently out there and on the horizon") will be priced in such a way that the competition will be hard pressed to match.

Hey eric (pisay87), is that you buddy? Are you getting voom? Let me know how it goes as far as both hd content & video quality.

I couldn't resist $0 down deal and will have Va Va Voom installed on 3/4 on my Tosh LCOS. I also have Total Choice Premier on 3 D* set top boxes and 1 DirectvTivo. I will probably cancel part of my D* packages due to overlap. Too bad Voom doesn't have HDNET, HDNET movies, Fox News, etc. So for now I will probably cancel only HBO, Showtime and Starz on D*

I had mine installed 2/28 with the same lease program and have no
regrets so far. Great PQ and choices of HD. I am using the DVI to the
HDMI on my Pio 1110 and was very pleased with the PQ, noticably
better than D*. The channels are easy to surf too.

Did they give you that cable or did you have to buy it? I have a Pioneer 1110 and need a one foot DVI to HDMI cable.
Also - my install didn't go at all. The installer said that a very tall tree was going to block my signal. I own a townhome so I don't have a lot of install options nor do I want some dish hanging where everyone can see.
*SIGH* My Adelphia cable stinks... at least they just added CBS in HD.
