It's Comcastic!
So, I'm done with them.
Well, to each their own, we switched back from D* to Comcast HD for a few reasons, major one was tired of the signal dropping out from rain fade & snow on the dish. Would be playing back from the DVR's and parts of the show missing, and of couse don't know it's happening till it's too late.
If I stayed with D* I would have had to spend more for new HD DVR equipment to add more HD's & a new contract with higher monthly costs, and that was after spending $1000 for HD & SD DirectTivo's in 2003, now obsolete door stops. I was done with Direct TV too.
Our Comcast system supplies an outstanding HD picture, and can't beat the features on my two HD TIVO's, and over 100 HD's due 1st of May (over 60 HD's now). I am extremely happy with Comcast and their great HD picture and fast internet with zero issues.
So for each sub Comcast loses, Direct loses one too, just like cell phone co's. No one really cares, it's to each their own, that's why there is competion.
Enjoy your Direct TV when you have to brush off 12" of snow from the dish.
