Oh and after all the finagling around to make sure everything got recorded tonight, the dish went out for nearly 10 minutes because of rain again and I ended up watching the first 30 minutes of 'The Intruders' online LOL and recorded the 11:00 pm ET showing of Outlander, geez things were not gonna go my way tonight.
I like the PQ of DTV just fine, better than Comcast from which I switched. My only complaint is the hangups with the remote--on changing channels, or when it ceases to respond to any remote commands for 10 or more secs before it comes back to life.

Sums me up.

14 years with D*, not changing anytime soon (thanks to PQ, channels), but the equipment is buggy as hell

Quit failing to flip the switch

It is great. When I came over to D* from E* 15 months ago it was easy for me to see the difference. DirecTV also had ESPNU and my RSN in HD 24/7. Both of those were huge additions that E* wasn't offering at the time. Customer service is never perfect, we can always bitch about that, but my experiences with D* have been nothing but positive. It appears they actually care. I can also understand what they are saying; I can't say the same thing about Dish. I had some very frustrating phone conversations with their customer support. I do wish all companies would do away with those damn touchtone prompts and get back to live individuals. I've seldom been as frustrated as I am when dealing with those prompts. I love the HR44. I'd just like to see a couple of changes made that would benefit everyone and I'd be good to go.

When is the follow-up HR 54 coming. It needs a 2 Terabyte Hard Drive and maybe a 6th Tuner..

This is off topic, but I can't even get to a thread at dbstalk.com. Has anyone had any trouble getting to dbstalk.com?? I was wanting to check out some threads over there and every thread I click on I get the big warning about this being a possible attack page or something to that effect. I get this on every thread I've tried so far:

It's an issue they're working on, but you can still get to the site by clicking on the "ignore warning"

Is it safe? Do you visit there and have you had any issues?

Yes, it's perfectly safe.

Google identified an ad as spam (which it wasn't) and set up that warning.

All ads have since been removed from the site, but Google hasn't stopped the notifications.

Ouch, that has to be costing them some money, no ads at all and that big attack page warning. That sux for them.

Went to friend's house last weekend....he has AT&T....HD looked mediocre at best for 1080i....thought maybe his new Samsung 64F8500 was not all that since it didn't look that great in the stores either for broadcast TV....but when put in a recorded 1080i broadcast from DirecTV,the picture was SIGNFICANTLY better.
