I have been using SageTV for a couple years now, and have built up quite the system in my home. I cancelled Dish network about a year ago, because I really didn't watch anything that wasn't available on basic analog cable, or OTA. I now currently have 2 ATSC tuners, 2 Analog Cable tuners, and 1 analog capture conencted to a digital cable box (for some Wife requested extended basic channels). I was hoping to be able to replace the box with a cablecard tuner, but if the cost is going to require a new system purchase, restrict me to MCE (which, in my opinion is considerably inferior to Sage), it is a no go. For the cost of one of these new systems, I can purchase 2 R5000-HD mods and some Dish 211's, and Dish will get me back as a customer. Makes me glad I left the dishes on my roof when i cancelled!
