any advice on what company offers the best dvr's . Im mostly worried about hdmi problems / freezing/ skipping etc. I dont use internet.
Since I use five tuners for only one TV, I might be "just a bit" biased as to how many tuners one needs. lol
I haven't ever used a Dish DVR, so I can't advise you on them.
DirecTV's DVRs have come along way from where they were when they first came out. The HR24s are a major step up from their earlier ones.
In my five years [almost] with DirecTV's DVRs I've never had HDMI problems, freezing, or skipping. This isn't to say I haven't read about others with these problems. HDMI problems are mostly related to how well [or not] the TV maker has followed the HDMI standard. DirecTV has made many changes to try to be compatible with all the TV makers.
