Well I've only ever had DTv, but every time I'm at someones house and get the play with the remote, I'm mortified by the user interface and the remote layout, thats the same as most cable remotes I've seen.
One of my best friends/cousin just switched over to DTv from Dish because he was tired of them constantly going up on his monthly price and he has nothing but good things to say about DTv compared to Dish.
One thing that really rubs me the wrong way is how you get the SD and the HD version of every channel in the guide on Dish. I remember after a firmware update when DTv asked me if I wanted to hide the duplicates of SD/HD and I've never had to look at them again.
Since DTv has the locals now, I think Dish has lost their edge (if they really ever had one) in this area.
